While doing Boxer rescues, I noticed a trend. And that is that St. Bernard dogs were being brought to shelters a little more and more. I read up on the breed to see why a person would giver up on these beautiful dogs. And once again, it is due to misunderstandings and people not begin prepared to deal with these beautiful dogs.
Saint Bernards are powerful, tall and muscular dogs. They have square, well-proportioned heads with wrinkled foreheads, short muzzles, jowls, black noses and ears that hang close to the face. Their dark, deeply set eyes have a kind and wise expression. They have thick necks, broad shoulders, deep chests and strong legs. Their feet are nice and large—perfect for tracking through the snow. Saint Bernards have long, heavy tails. Their dense, short coats—either short- or longhaired—are usually white with red, mahogany, brindle, tan or black markings.
Don’t let the mellow exterior fool you: These dogs are fiercely loyal and protective of their families. And, when they’re young, they can be a little bit stubborn. Eager to please and easy to train, Saint Bernards can be socialized from a young age to manage their large size and bold personalities.
