Bred as a working dog to help rescue lost travelers, they are renowned for their strength, loyalty, and intelligence.
The breed dates back to the 17th century, when monks at the Hospice of Saint Bernard in Switzerland used them to search for lost travelers in the treacherous mountain passes.
These dogs were bred for their size, strength, and endurance, and were known for their ability to locate and rescue people buried in snowdrifts.
They were also used to guard livestock and pull carts, and their thick coats kept them warm in the cold mountain air.
Today, Saint Bernards are still used as search and rescue dogs, but they are also popular family pets.
They are gentle and affectionate, and their size and strength make them excellent guardians.
With proper training and socialization, Saint Bernards can be loyal and loving companions.
