Description:

Photograph of the sledge dog "Saint" standing at the entrance to his kennel on the deck of "Endurance".

None of the dogs taken during the Transantarctic Expedition survived the drift on the ice floes; Shackleton regretfully had to order the death of all but two teams shortly after establishing Patience Camp, owing to the lack of stores and the need to feed the men before all else.
