Now Available on DVD – 245 Dog Years Later

On January 30th, 1977, The Wonderful World of Disney aired the first part of Barry of the Great St. Bernard, a two-part movie telling the story of Barry, the most famous Saint Bernard dog hero ever.

Missed by fans for 35 years who remember the movie from their youth, nearly impossible to find on VHS or DVD, Barry of the Great St. Bernard is finally available from Disney on DVD as of June, 2012.

Dog movie lovers and Saint Bernard enthusiasts rejoice!

Looking for the true story of Barry? Jan Bondeson's Amazing Dogs: A Cabinet of Canine Curiosities features a chapter devoted to the fact and legend behind this immortalized rescue dog.
