Senbernar

The birthplace of the St. Bernards is the Swiss Alps. Their rare are Asian mastiffs and Molossian dogs of the ancient Romans, who fell into the mountains during conquests.

In the 11th century, the dogs that lived at the monastery of St. Bernard in the Swiss Alps received the same name. From the 17th century the monks living here began to use dogs to search and rescue travelers in the mountains.

In the Middle Ages, St. Bernards were smaller and more mobile, had a special scent that made it possible to find people who fell under an avalanche. They had the ability to feel the approach of avalanches, than repeatedly saved the life of the inhabitants of the monastery. One of the most famous Saint Bernards was called Barry. Over 10 years of his life, he found and pulled out from under the avalanches of about 40 people. Continue reading

Rizenschnauzer

Giant Schnauzer is a breed of dog with a name that has German roots. Literally: Riesenschnauzer from riesen – giant, schnauze – face. You can still find such breed names as “bearish” or “Russian schnauzer”, and if “bearish” can still be justified by the size of the dog, then “Russian” has no historical background. The Giant Schnauzer is the largest breed in the top three Schnauzers, along with the middling schnauzer (middle) and the miniature schnauzer (miniature). Giant Schnauzers possess not only a very memorable appearance, but also a wonderful character. Currently, the breed is used as a guard and companion dog, a police service dog, and a bloodhound. The history of the origin of the breed has not been fully elucidated, there are many versions, we will focus on a brief squeeze of some of them. Most likely, the birthplace of the breed is Germany, and the main purpose of the rizen was to graze sheep. Continue reading

Poodle

Presumably, the ancestors of the poodle were introduced by Arabs from North Africa to Spain and Portugal, where they began to interbreed with a Portuguese water dog and cattle dogs. Over time, the poodle got to other European countries. It was large, originally used in the hunt and pulled game from the water. In France, during the time of Louis – in the 17-18th century. – the poodle became a “royal” dog – the main favorite of courtiers. At this time, the selection of this breed was aimed at obtaining small dogs. However, the poodle was not only decorative, but also for official purposes.
The poodle received great popularity in Europe in the 19–20th century. Representatives of this breed were depicted on canvases of paintings, and even emblems, became heroes of literary and musical works. Continue reading
