The character of the animal and its lugubrious expression is expertly captured. Sir Edwin Landseer (1802 - 1873) was the most famous animal painter of the period. He was trained by his father to sketch animals from life, and began exhibiting at the Royal Academy when only 13. Emotive portraits of animals went down very well with the Victorian public, crossing the class divide. Queen Victoria had Landseer paint her pets, while the middle classes bought prints of his work to hang at home.

A dog arrives at the door of a an Alpine hospice, an exhausted child, rescued from an avalanche by the animal, clinging to its back. The story is recounted in two lines of text below the title. The 'Hospice du mont Saint-Bernard', a traveller's hospice on the often treacherous St. Bernard Pass in the Western Alps between Switzerland and Italy, is the origin of the name of the St. Bernard breed of dog, a working dog from the Swiss Alps, originally bred for rescue.
