The breed has helped save the lives of an estimated 25-hundred travelers in the Swiss Alps over the past few centuries. But with the advent of helicopters and heat sensors, the dogs will now have to accept their new role strictly as pet.

In the 11th century a monk named St. Bernard introduced a community of monks that used special, thick coated dogs to aid travelers and rescue avalanche victims-- the breed has been vital in locating victims buried in deep snow ever since. The adult Bernards cost a little over six thousand dollars-- and owners must promise to take them back to their home in the Alps every summer.
