You hope you don’t need to be pulled from an avalanche, but if you do, it might be from a heroic four-legged rescuer. At a Jackson Hole, Wyo., resort, these six dogs keep the mountain safe (and entertained). Avalanche dogs are said to date back to the 1700s, when St. Bernards accompanied Swiss monks between monasteries. Today, avalanche dogs help search-and-rescue teams around the world — from the Alpine villages in France to the Annapurna mountains of Nepal.
