St. Bernards are large working dogs originally bred by monks to guard the grounds of their hospice at Switzerland’s Great St. Bernard Pass.
St. Bernards have been credited with rescuing more than 2,000 injured or stranded travelers during three centuries of recorded hospice records. In the early 1800s, one St. Bernard, named Barry, saved over forty lives. They’re nicknamed “Barry dogs.”
