The Story Of Saint Jacquard

Feb 25, 2020

St. Bernard dogs are often pictured with kegs around their necks to signify their original breeding as rescuers of people crossing dangerous passes in the Alps. This story, written by Silas Warner, follows the life of Jacquard, a St. Bernard raised as a pet who follows his rescue instincts during the Nazi occupation of France during World War 2. It originally aired on the children's show, the Pea Green Boat in February, 2020.
