~Watching a St. Bernard grow......from
.....to an .........
This page was designed for those of you who have never owned a St. Bernard before and are not sure what to expect from the breed!!!
Hopefully this page can give you a little idea as to how fast they really DO grow and how proper nutrition is essential in the fast growing bones....!
It is not meant to scare you out!!! But to give you a guideline to go by!! The pictures are not neccesarily of the same puppy as I did not have from baby to an adult of the same puppy.....only pictures of puppies of those ages. And every puppy does vary.....it is interesting to see how short of a time they stay....a puppy!!
ENJOY......and questions feel free to ask!!!
~Here is a litter of puppies just born.....they weigh between 1.2 and 1.8 lbs. The smaller a litter usually the bigger the puppies are. Saints have between 6~10 puppies on an average so this size is a pretty average size when they are born into this wide and WONDERFUL world!!!
