My fiance rescued a pug from a No Kill shelter several years ago. He was so severaly abused he was missing almost all of his fur and he had fleas so bad he lost 1 of his eyes so my fiance named him Uno. He didn't know how to walk on grass or even play. He never barked, gave kisses, or jumped up to greet us. Sadly Uno passed away last year and my fiance was devistated to say the least, So when we came across the chug I knew I had to get him a Chug puppy! If any one could let me know of any puppies in the Pennsylvania are I would greatly appreciat it. Thank You. Amy Sheffler

We just lost our 14 1/2 yr old longhaired sweetie pie 3 weeks ago. She was potty trained within a week, was not a barker and loved to cuddle. She was a huge part of our life and we miss her soo much! She stole the heart of everyone she came into contact with, young and old. We live in Pennsylvania and are looking for a sweet little long hair female in Pa, ohio, New York area. Can anyone help.

Used for rescue as early as the seventeenth century, the Saint Bernard is still popularly known today as a rescue dog. This is a very large gentle working dog breed that originated in the Swiss Alps. The name of its progenitor, the Alpine Mastiff (which is now extinct), is also used with the Saint Bernard. Other common names for this breed are Saint Bernhardshund and Bernhardiner
The legacy of this dog breed is recorded first in paintings and drawings in the 1600's. In the beginning of the 1700's it was further recorded by monks dwelling in a hospice at the Great St. Bernard Pass in the Western Alps, located between Switzerland and Italy. There, a famous Saint Bernard ancestor called Barry, is known to have rescued somewhere between 40 and 100 people. The name of the pass became the name of these incredible dogs.
The Saint Bernard, bred to rescue people, makes a gentle and loyal companion dog today. They are generally easygoing and friendly. They do very well with children, but they must be socialized while young. They make good watchdogs due to their large size and intelligence. When selecting a Saint Bernard, look for heart, skin, and joint problems and wobbler syndrome.
Common Name(s) Saint Bernard, Alpine Mastiff, Saint Bernhardshund, Bernhardiner
Breed Type The Saint Bernard is a working breed. One of the larger breeds, the Saint Bernard has been involved in rescue work. They are best suited to cool climates.
Background The Saint Bernard was used as a rescue dog as early as the seventeenth century. A descendent of mastiffs, the original Saint Bernard nearly became extinct. The breed was kept going by crossing it with other dogs, possibly including the Great Dane and the Great Pyrenees. Crosses with the Newfoundland brought forth long-haired variety of Saint Bernard.
Today, popular hybrids include the Saint Berdoodle (Saint Bernard and Poodle mix) and the Saint Berner (Saint Bernard and Bernese Mountain Dog mix).
Description The Saint Bernard is a large, muscular breed. Rough and smooth coats are acceptable. The thick coats come in white with tan, red, mahogany, brindle or black markings, and in black. The ears are mid-length, and they eyes and nose dark. Both sexes are usually 25 Â½ to 27 Â½ inches tall and weigh 110-200 pounds. But as long as weight is in proportion to height, larger dogs are acceptable.
Care and Feeding Saint Bernards' diets should include lamb, wheat and potato. Regular combing and brushing will keep your Saint Bernard's coat looking great. Baths should be given with mild soap, and only when necessary. Saint Bernards need annual checkups to stay healthy. Vaccinations are due as follows:
