Breed of the Month

- Saint Berard-

  • Temperament: Playful, Charming, Inquisitive

  • AKC Breed Popularity: Ranks 48 of 196

  • Height: 28-30 inches (males), 26-28 inches (female)

  • Weight: 140-180 pounds (male), 120-140 pounds (female)

  • Life Expectancy: 8-10 years

The Saint Bernard does not rank very high in AKC registrations, but the genial giant of the Swiss Alps is nonetheless among the world’s most famous and beloved breeds. Saints are famously watchful, patient, and careful with children.


The Saint Bernard’s written standard abounds with phrases like “very powerful,” “extraordinarily muscular,” “imposing,” and “massive.” A male stands a minimum 27.5 inches at the shoulder; females will be smaller and more delicately built. The huge head features a wrinkled brow, a short muzzle, and dark eyes, combining to give Saints the intelligent, friendly expression that was such a welcome sight to stranded Alpine travelers.
