Back to Casso List
Welcome to the August Draught Casso! My name is Sakari and I will be your president for the month. Thank you to everyone that voted for me. Our breed boost for the month is once again the Greater Swiss Mountain Dog (GSMD). The goal is to get the GSMD to 3,785 Registrations! We have had a lot of success in the past and I know we can do it again. The GSMD is growing with popularity every month. Let's do it again for the draught dogs! :D
"Greater than what? Well, standing as high as 28.5 inches and weighing as much as a midsize human, a Greater Swiss might easily be greater than you.
Swissies are immensely strong, yet agile enough to move a flock across the sloping foot of a mountain. The coat is a striking tricolor—black, red, and white. The head and muzzle typically have a white marking (the “blaze”), setting off a sweet expression. Several big mountain-dog breeds are described as “majestic,” but Swissies practically invented the word."
