Sheka,

I would want to see her hind end. That's how I can often tell the true Berner mixes. There butts often will be kind of rounded, and often they have the tell-tale gait of a Berner. Their butts kind of roll back and forth. Its sort of a "I know it when I see it" kind of thing. Also, their coats are often a little bit fuzzy, and usually quite soft to the touch. The black will often be jet black, with a hint of the Berner sheen. (If you have ever closely compared a Berner to a black lab standing next to it, then you know what I am talking about. If it is possible for black to be "vivid," a Berner's black coat is just that.) A lot of this stuff doesn't show up well in photos, though. So its hard to tell sometimes unless you can see the dog in person.

And, of course, some mixes look nothing like their parent. So, even though you might think you know what type of dog a mix's parent was, unless you actually really know the lineage, you are just making an educated guess.

Arent Bernese Mountain Dogs extremely short lived? Maybe Im confusing breeds. They are such gorgeous dogs but I couldnt bear to have a dog that dies of old age at 6!

Yes. They are known to have short life spans. Often they die of cancer, not old age.
