They are gentle giants. Our Heidi was a rescue at 7 mos. She is now 10 and going strong. She is very photogenic with a personality to go along. She makes us laugh everyday! our one was a rescue at age now 7 and still a large puppy.
The Saint Bernard was developed in medieval Switzerland as a cart hauler & companion pet for the monks of the Bernardine Hospice. The Saint Bernard is a kind breed, benevolent with children, but its bulk makes it unsuitable for most urban living.
