Saint Bernard

Saint Bernards are a giant breed of dog that are iconic for their gentle nature and strength that has made them famous for many alpine rescues. Originally bred for the purpose of mountain rescues and farming, Saint Bernards are one of the four Sennenhund (alpine pasture dog) breeds. Saint Bernards are known for being ‘gentle giants’ with calm, patient, and nurturing temperaments for children and companions—though they should be socialized early to prevent any fearful territorial tendencies. The Saint Bernard has a smooth or rough coat that is commonly shaded red or mahogany on white with black shades on the face and ears.

The average Saint Bernard has an overall height of 32.0"-37.0" (81-94 cm), withers height of 26.0”-30.0” (66-76 cm), and body length of 40.0"-47.0" (102-119 cm). A typical Saint Bernard weighs between 120-180 lb (54-82 kg) and has a lifespan of roughly 8-10 years.
