What Is a St. Bernard Pitbull Mix?

The Saint Bernard/pit bull mixes is a rare but well-loved crossbreed of dog. These mixes are often strong, protective dogs, and owners of this mix speak highly of them.

Mixed breed dogs commonly have physical and temperamental characteristics from both parents. Saint Bernards are typically patient, gentle dogs, whereas pit bulls are more playful. Saint Bernard/pit bull mixes require daily exercise. Coat colors vary; however, they commonly have the signature white patch of the Saint Bernard on the chest. This mix regularly weighs over 100 pounds, whereas pit bulls rarely weigh more than 90 pounds. Because Saint Bernards are so much larger than pit bulls, health complications can arise during pregnancy if the mother is significantly smaller than the father.
