What do you like most about St. bernards?

I named my st. bernard, Hagrid. He's a very friendly and protective dog. Although at times he can get overly excited and can get pretty handful because of his size. But I still love him nonetheless because of his loyalty.

I was raised with St. Bernards and they are truly one of the most loving breeds. My first St. Bernard was really affectionate. I am 8 years older than my sister and I was probably 10 or 11 when we got my first one. My sister was pretty little and Princess would always play so gentle with her and let her win in races. She would even let my sister ride on her back. Saints just seem to have that instinct to be gentle and protective. She always knew that she could play a little rougher with me. Wonderful dogs. I would love to have another one sometime. By the way...Hagrid is the coolest name for a Saint. Very size appropriate.:P

I think Hagrid's a cool name for a saint too, thanks. I hope you'd get a new saint soon.

I actually saw Saint Bernard for the very first time in the fime "Beethoven". I liked the dog very much when i saw it for very first time. I had lived with dogs like Rottweiler, Labrador, German Shepherd, Irish Setter and Pomeranian. But never had a opportunity to have a Saint bernard. But i believe that within a year, I have a st.bernard in my room. What i like the most about Saint bernard is their big head and their lovely face when they wag their tail towards their owners. It looks pure childish & sweet!

I have been around Saint Bernards for almost three years. I've owned Demon, Harley, and Rambo. My favorite part of the Saint is his friendliness. I can trust him around anyone, and have never met anyone who's ever been bitten. They are great around kids, very calm once they get to know them, but when they first meet new people... it's a whole different story. They get excited, swinging their butts along with their tails. Another thing I like is their versatility. Every Saint I've owned wasn't a lazy couch-potato like most people think of them as. They wanted to get out and run. -Cassie
