From http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/saintbernard.htm:

The dogs are able to smell a person under many feet of snow. They have saved thousands of people searching out and finding lost or injured travelers. The dogs would work in packs looking for the victims. When found they would lick and lay down with them in order to keep them warm. While a dog or more would lay with the body(s) another dog would head back to the Hospice to alert them that they found the humans. A full rescue team would then be sent out.

The Saint Bernard has also been known to be able to predict storms and avalanches.

But they're no good at agility, unlike Pulis:

Ever wondered what type of dog Dougal (Pollux to the French) was based on?
