Saint Bernard Who Couldn’t Get Off The Mountain Gets His Own Rescue Team

Saint Bernards were well-known rescues long before Beethoven got well-known through movies. Historically, this kind of dog has saved the lives of distressed humans, but this time the tale was different.

Since the 18th century, Saint Bernards have been saving mountain people because of their excellent sense of direction and tolerance to cold, according to Smithsonian Magazine.

The original dogs of this breed were produced by monks who resided on the Saint Bernard Pass, a perilous path over the Alps. All in the hopes that these cuddly giants would support them during various rescue operations following severe snowstorms.
