At Ru-Ridge Farms we raise quality AKC Newfoundlands. We have bred Saint Bernards for 12 years and recently switched breeds to Newfoundlands. With our 5 kids we raise high quality registered Holsteins, show cattle and horses and farm 380 acres. We believe farm and family raised puppies are the best family dogs. All pups will be guaranteed against any genetic defects for 2 years. Parents are both OFA hip and heart certified. Sire is double registered, AKC and APA. All puppies will be current on vaccinations and worming, as well as micro chipped for their safety. Pups will be placed with approved homes only. We do require a contract to protect ourselves and our buyers as well as our puppies. We ask that any puppy or dog that ever needs to be rehomed for any reason is reported to us first so that we may possibly prevent them from ever becoming shelter animals. Many, many references available.

I have a St. Bernard/Great Pyrenees male puppy. I'm training him to be my companion dog. At what age should he be neutered?

You should wait until your dog is 1 year of age before he is neutered. He needs his testicles that produce a growth hormone so that his bone density is as good as it can be by the time he is neutered.

Since having them neutered too early can actually cause issues, you should ask one or two breeders for the ages that their pets were altered at. Then, wait a while longer.

My Service Dog Is a Saint Bernard and he is almost 2 and he still has his Balls. It is best to not did the Giant breeds tell they have stopped growing, or you could end up with problems like I got from my rescue, his previous owners got him fixed at 5 months which is way to young and now he has had 4 knee surgeries. Best of luck with whatever you decide.

Make sure that anyone that want's a Saint Bernard takes into consideration that this breed can develop Addison's Disease. My female has it and I wouldn't trade her for the world. But it cost me 150 a month to keep her alive for a shot and the steroids that she needs to survive.

Research has proven that it is best to wait until 18 months of age. The is for the overall health and protection of your pet.
