Damaged nerves is a serious thing to happen to a dog. A lot of dogs have had nerve damage and have made progress to regaining mobility. The pup is young so that is in its favor. The vet knows things that should be listened to, trust in what he sais and let time show the results.

How did the Saint Bernard dog get its name?

The name "St. Bernard" originates from traveler's hospice on the often treacherous St. Bernard Pass in the Western Alps between Switzerland and Italy, where the name was passed to the local dogs. The pass, the lodge, and the dogs are named for Bernard of Menthon, the 11th century monk who established the station. (Wikipedia)

How do you beat the heat in summer?

If you aren't lucky enough to have air conditioning then get a spritzer bottle and put tepid water in it and mist yourself with it. You can also put a cool rag on the back of your neck or run the undersides of your wrists under cold water and your temp will go down. People seem to feel that icy cold drinks make them cold, but in actuality a cup of coffee or tea will cool you off faster. If you can't sleep at night then puta lot of ice in a medium plastic basin and run a fan over it so the fan is pointed just over your body. It cools you right down! Wear ONLY COTTONand nothing with synthetics in it as synthetics hold the heat in. If you wear nylons in the summer, don't! Get some of those new lotions from your drug store than give your legs some color.

How did Saint bernards come to the us?

St Bernards were bred by the Monk in the Alps to locate lost people during snow storms or avalanches. They are from a cross of the German Mossler (mastiff) and the Great Pyrenees. Excerpt from the History on the Website

During the following centuries, these dogs were widely used in the valley farms and Alpine dairies for a variety of guarding, herding, and drafting duties. Referred to as Talhund (Valley Dog) or Bauernhund (Farm Dog), they were apparently well established by A.D. 1050, when Archdeacon Bernard de Menthon founded the famous Hospice in the Swiss Alps as a refuge for travelers crossing the treacherous passes between Switzerland and Italy.

Just when dogs were first brought to the Hospice is debatable, since the Hospice was destroyed by fire in the late 16th century, and, soon after, a large part of the Hospice archives were lost. The first notation concerning the dogs was not until 1707. This, however, was merely a casual reference to dogs at the Hospice and carried the implication that their rescue work at the Saint Bernard Pass was a fact well known at the time. From a digest of early references, it appears that the dogs were first brought to the Hospice sometime between 1660 and 1670. It is likely that large dogs were recruited from the valley areas below to serve as watchdogs for the Hospice and companions for the Monks during the long winter months when the Hospice was almost completely isolated.

This isolation of the Hospice no doubt resulted in inbreeding of the original stock which soon produced the distinctive strain of "Hospice Dog." It also follows that only those animals with the strongest instincts for survival in the extremely adverse conditions at the Hospice were to leave their genetic imprint upon the breed during those early years.

The lonely Monks, who took the dogs along on their trips of mercy, soon discovered the animals were excellent pathfinders in the drifting snow, and the dogs' highly developed sense of smell made them invaluable in locating helpless persons overcome during storms. Thus began this working together of Monk and dog which made many of the world's most romantic pages of canine history.

During the three centuries that Saint Bernards have been used in rescue work at the Hospice, it is estimated that they have been responsible for the saving of well over 2,000 human lives. Although the building of railroad tunnels through the Alps has lessened foot and vehicular travel across the Saint Bernard Pass, the Monks have continued to maintain these fine dogs for companionship and in the honor of the Hospice tradition.
