About Our Breed by Arthur Hesser
A monastery and hospice was founded in the year 980 by the Augustinian monk Bernard de Menthon on the mountain which in Roman times was called Mons Jovis and from that time on the Great Saint Bernard Pass.

It is not intended in any way to take the place of competent professional advice. Indeed, the new owner is urged to select a veterinarian as soon as the puppy arrives – finding one who is experienced in the special requirements of the giant breeds and who in general “likes big dogs.”
