The gentle and quiet Saint Bernard may not have had an official name until 1880 but it is now one of the most popular giant dog breeds.

The Saint Bernard is the dog definition of a gentle giant. On average this decedent of the Mastiff weighs 110 pounds- but both males and females have been known to weigh in at 200 pounds. This gigantic pet belongs to the working group of dogs and like its Bernese Mountain Dog neighbor, it has been used for draft work in the past. What the Saint Bernard is most known for its work as a search and rescue dog. It has a sacred past- which is how the breed finally got its official name in 1880.
