SAINT BERNARD puppy dog

That is right, the first breeders of this giant were the monks of the Saint Bernard Hostel in the Swedish Alps that used it to find lost travelers after huge snow storms and revive them. It is believed that it descends from the ancient Mastiff's ancestors and that it has saved such a huge number of human lives that cannot be counted. Dog Toys
