Interesting Facts about the Saint Bernard

The Saint Bernard originated in Switzerland.
They most likely were created when dogs native to the Alps were crossed with Mastiff-type dogs that came with the Roman army during the time of the emperor Augustus.

 

The Saint Bernard Pass is a well-known and treacherous alpine pass that lies roughly 8,000 feet above sea level and can only be traveled between July and September. Archdeacon Bernard de Menthon arrived at this pass in AD 962, which would eventually be named after him, there he founded his hospic to aid travelers who were overcome by crossing this treacherous pass. That’s when the Saint Bernard’s history began. It is unclear when the dogs were first used by the Hospice, but a painting depicting well-built shorthaired dogs that greatly resembled Saint Bernards as they are today was painted in 1695. The first written mention of the breed in the monastery’s records was in 1703. The dogs were probably originally used by the hospice monks to guard the grounds and later became famous for their ability to track and rescue stranded travelers on the pass.
