Couple looking for Long hair Chihuahua. Resonably priced.
I would like to buy a long haired chihuahua. My son has one and I would like to raise one too. I live in York Pa. Please respond PJ Gryp
I live outside of Fort Worth. I have chorkies, one a year old and three 2 years old. The older ones both parents were registered but I did not register them because I couldn't find papers on the dad. Mom was a blue deer leg chihuahua-very rare in color, dad was silver and black yorkie. I need to find homes for them because I now have too many. The younger one was sired by one of my males and is very unusual looking...he somehow came out with blue eyes. Charlotte Boeker-Burris
Indeed a teddy bear chow. 8143376096 Christopher Martin
I live in Michigan, near Clinton Twp. Would like to find a reasonably priced Westie, not too old, with all shots and in good health. I do have a cat, so the dog would hopefully be cat-friendly. Lind Grammatico
With regrets, my mother has learned that she is allergic to her Westie. Westie is housed trained, up to date with shots, have his records and history of his linkage. Westie is 4 years old. Willing to practically give him away. Lenner
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:
