The Remarkable History of the Saint Bernard, featuring Barry.

Saint Bernards are a remarkable Breed. If you are new to Saint Bernards,
 this site will provide hours of Saint Bernard enjoyment.
           

Since the early 18th century, monks living in the snowy, dangerous
St. Bernard Pass—a  route through the Alps between Italy and Switzerland—had Saint
Bernards to help them on their rescue missions. The Saint Bernard recues were
needed because of snowstorms.
Over nearly 200 years, approximately 2,000 people, from
 lost children to Napoleon's soldiers have been rescued.  Saint Bernards 
 are heroic dogs' with an uncanny sense of direction and resistance to cold.
Since way back then and through much crossbreeding, the canines have
 become the domesticSt. Bernard dogs commonly seen in households today.


Barry is known as the Famous Saint Bernard Dog and was owned by the Monks.
In Barry's honor the Monks always have a Saint Bernard named Barry.

Barry the Great Saint Bernard is the most famous Saint Bernard dog of all time.
He saved over 40 travellers lost in the snows of the Great Saint Bernard Pass in
 Switzerland.

 Travelers were brought back to the Hospice to recover.

In 1800 a Saint Bernard puppy was born who was to acheive monumental rescue work.
 This puppy of course was  Barry, and he was responsible for saving the lives of over 40
people.
 There are many stories associated
 with Barry and the rescues that he carried out in the Great Saint Bernard Pass.

From a young age Barry was trained by the monks of Saint Bernard Hospice to
 rescue those trapped or lost in the area of Saint Bernard Pass in the Swiss Alps.
The training that the puppies
 chosen for rescue work received involved learning how to care for victims of avalanches.
The dogs travelled in small groups looking for victims to rescue; when a person
 was found unconscious the dogs licked their face to rouse them and then one
would use his body to warm the victim while another returned to the hospice to get help.

Barry's body has been preserved at the Natural History Museum in Bern.
           
If you would like to read the story of The Famous Saint Bernard Barry, it is available.

The classic Saint Bernard looked very different from the St. Bernard of today.
Severe weather during the 1800's led to an increased number of avalanches
 that took the lives
of many St. Bernards. In an attempt to preserve the breed, the
 remaining St. Bernards were crossed with Newfoundlands in the 1850s.  In doing so,
the Saint Bernards  lost much of
their use as rescue dogs in the snowy climate.  They inherited
long hair that would freeze and weigh them down.

The Swiss St. Bernard Club was founded in Basel on March 15 1884.
 The St. Bernard was the very first breed entered into the Swiss Stud Book in 1884,
 and the breed standard was finally approved
 in 1888. Since that time the St. Bernard has been a Swiss
 national dog.
