Look who is looking for you! We bring 65 dogs to the St. Louis area every Saturday. If you would like to meet this dog, just let us know. We are at PetSmart in O’Fallon on the 1st and 2nd Saturdays of each month and at PetSmart in Chesterfield on the 3rd and 4th Saturday. We are at PetCo in St. Charles /St. Peters on Mid River Mall Drive on Saturday afternoon. .
St. Ollie and St. Stanley – big Goofie boys – loving and well mannered, they are still thin but doing great. Big boys, their owner simply could not afford to feed them. They ended up in a small town, high kill shelter. We are very glad to have these guys with us. With love and good nutrition, they will gain weight and get back their glorious full coats. Regaining the luscious coat is the last thing to recover from poor nutrition. Yes, the boys love each other and it is fine for them to be separated. They get along very well with other dogs and will do best with a canine companion as well as lots of time with their human family.
You could not find sweeter or more loving big guys. They are very happy outside and will learn to be happy and content indoor family members. Saints like to spend time outside when it is cool so a fenced yard is required for these boys.

Spay/neutered, all vaccines current to date, information on these great breeds is below.
Housetrained? If you will open the door, he’s housetrained. Every dog has to learn a new routine in a new home. They don’t know the schedule or how to ask you to open the door. To succeed at housetraining, expect more of yourself than you do of your dog. A crate and praise are the keys to success. Housetraining tips are in your adoption packet.
Adoption Fees and Payment Plans: We take credit cards and checks. Payments can be arranged with a credit card. As with all of our adoptions, we know it is hard to get married on a blind date... even to a wonderful pup. We will take our dog back during the first month and refund your adoption fee less $75. To hold a pup, we ask for a $50 non-refundable deposit if delivery is not made during the same week.
About the breed: Saint Bernards are extremely gentle and friendly and very tolerant of children. Slow moving, patient, and obedient. Extremely loyal, this breed wants to please. Since this dog is so giant, be sure to socialize it very well at a young age with other people. It is highly intelligent and easy to train, however training should begin early, while the dog is still a manageable size. Teach this dog not to jump on humans starting at puppyhood. Bear in mind that an unruly dog of this size presents a problem for even a strong adult if it is to be exercised in public areas on a leash, so take control from the onset. The Saint Bernard is a good watchdog. Even its size is a good deterrent.
