A big head, dangling ears, a friendly look and a keg around the neck; No doubt, this is the Saint-Bernard. This great mountain dog takes its name from the hospice of Grand-Saint-Bernard, located in the Swiss Alps where it was used by monks for mountain rescue. The keg of rum he carried on his neck was intended to invigorate the victims of the cold. The St. Bernard is white and red with black shading on the head and ears. It has short or long hair depending on the variety. It is a dog a little stubborn but very sweet.
