“Once, I fell on some ice outside my back door,” says Kathy C. of Rhode Island. “My first Saint Bernard Teddy stood next to me, and let me lean on him to get myself back up. It’s typical of them. This majestic breed is protective of the family, loyal, cuddly, and lovable.”

Rescue heroes
The Saint Bernard gets his name from the 81,000-foot Great Saint Bernard Pass, where travelers have crossed the Swiss Alps into Italy for many centuries. A monastery founded around 1050 in the pass provided food and lodging for travelers, as well as guide services and aid for those beset by bad weather or thieves.
