Natives of the Swiss Alps, Saint Bernards are known for their phenomenal loyalty to people, and for their ability to rescue travellers lost in the mountains. These spotted giants are excellent at orienting themselves and can easily find their way home, even if they end up in an unfamiliar area. Their distinctive countenance, with its slight melancholy and the age-old wisdom of the entire canine family, is only one of their attributes. Saint Bernards make faithful friends, wonderful watchmen, and first-rate nannies. This breed represents such virtues as loyalty, watchfulness, commitment, sincerity and obedience. Dogs are known to have an excellent sense of smell. Therefore, a person with this totem has a well-developed intuition, a “gut feeling.”
Besides their trustworthiness towards humans, Saint Bernards are able to sense danger from afar and to adequately prepare for it. As a helper, the Saint Bernard dog leads its human companions to their goal. This talisman coin has a protective quality to it, and also brings good luck. Additionally, it will help one to establish friendly and equitable relationships, find a friend, and achieve family happiness.
