Of course, being a working dog is nothing new for this breed. These hard workers got their start pulling milk carts for farmers and then went on to help the monks who ran the Saint Bernard Hospice in Switzerland, rescuing lost travelers in the snowy Alps. Saint Bernard: mountain rescuer is a perfect read for dog lovers that includes amazing, real-life stories about these colossal canines while also recounting the breed's history and its relationship to the animal's physical characteristics, personality, and suitability as a pet. --From the publisher.
