Is it Russian or Asian? This breed originated in the region close to both countries. It has been a Breed of Purpose for hundreds, if not thousands of years helping mankind. A bronze statue in Central Park, NY was placed as a tribute to the breed.

In the middle of this heat wave ☀️ let’s cool it down and talk about SNOW ❄️ dogs, well Sled dogs as they’re known in the dog world.

.
.

Sled dogs were important in the early years before mechanical vehicles were introduced for transportation in arctic areas hauling supplies that were inaccessible by other methods.
Early explorations on both poles surely benefited by sled dogs.

The Swiss Confederation controlled the German …

The Swiss Confederation controlled the German city of Rottweil from 1463 to 1803, and the herding dog now known as the Rottweiler derived from tri-colored Swiss dogs that were also used to create the St. Bernard. You can say that the Rottweiler is more related to the St. Bernard than it would be to any other German breed. (Boxer, Dobe, Great Dane)

.
.

The myth that a Brandy barrel was carried on a St. Bernard’s neck is false. The monks of the St. Bernard Hospice deny that any St. Bernard has ever carried casks or small barrels around their necks; they attribute the image to an 1820 painting by Edwin Landseer, where an Alpine Mastiffs Reanimated a Distressed Traveler (which became a popular engraving in 1831 by Charles Landseer).

.
.

The name “St. Bernard" was not in widespread use until the middle of the 19th century. “Saint Dogs”, “Noble Steeds”, “Alpenmastiff”, or “Barry Dogs” we’re common names before that time with Barry dogs being given for the famous St. Bernard who was credited with saving more than 40 lives during his lifetime.

.
.

St. Bernard dogs are no longer used for Alpine rescues with the last recorded instance of a rescue in 1955.

Should this breed be considered a #mastiff too? It surely is one of the largest dogs in the world, being taller and heavier than a Great Dane on average.

This is another breed that is considered a #mastiff that I might have to disagree with as well (future post)

The breed is also the official state dog of a state here in the US. You can find a painting of the state’s founder and his dog hanging in the Governor’s reception room.
