Some of the "working classification" of dogs include Saint Bernards, Alaskan Malamutes, Akitas, Bernese Mountain Dogs, Rough-Coated Collies, German Shepherds, Great Danes and others. On this lens I will focus on the St. Bernard. The most famous St. Bernard was a mountain-rescue dog named Barry. When Barry died in 1814 he had saved forty lives.

Comments from My Dog Lover Guests
Yes, it's convenient. Thanks for your visit.
I love this historical information on Saint Bernard dogs. I had assumed they were named after Saint Bernard of Clairvaux, but I guess not. We also order our dog food online now and I love it.
Yes, they are gentle giants. I have a cat that knocks things off the table with both tail and paws.
I happen to love all large dog breeds. I used to babysit for a little boy whose family owned a St. Bernard and that dog would drink out of the fish tank, and knock everything off the tables with his tail! That was my only experience with a St. Bernard, but I thought he was beautiful.
