What is the difference between a short-hair and long-hair St. Bernard?
A single litter of puppies may produce both short-hair and long-hair puppies. Short-hair puppies have a “tighter” coat of hair consisting of shorter strands of hair. Short hair St. Bernards have a different appearance than their “long-hair” brethren, but are still easily distinguishable as Saint Bernards. Both hair types shed.
