Their strong sense of smell allows them to locate individuals under several metres of snow. The breed is named after the Monastery of St. Bernard, which breeds them. These dogs are always ready to search for and rescue travellers in need. They carry a keg of brandy tied around their necks so that the rescued person can drink and warm up.
