Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: misinformation of original painting

operatives disguised as rangers

Description: SCP-XXXX is a entity that manifests within mountain ranges located in Southern Europe. SCP-XXXX appears to be an instance of Canis familiaris, specifically a St. Bernard, with white and mahogany brown fur coloration, and a miniature oak barrel tied around its neck. Genetic analysis of fur samples reveal no anomalous distinctions between SCP-XXXX and other dogs of the same breed. SCP-XXXX's appearance remains consistent throughout manifestations. See Addendum XXXX-B.

SCP-XXXX may manifest if a human that meets any of the following criteria is within SCP-XXXX's area of effect:

  • the individual is injured or incapacitated
  • the individual is suffering from exposure and is in imminent danger of frostbite
  • the individual has a high affinity for dogs1

SCP-XXXX will appear from an unobserved location several meters away and approach individuals with any of these characteristics. Note that SCP-XXXX will only occur if there are no humans within five (5) kilometers of the subject, and only if the subject has no prior history of unreconciled animal abuse.

After approaching the subject, SCP-XXXX will present the miniature barrel around its neck. According to interviewed subjects, the barrel contains a liquid, dubbed SCP-XXXX-1, similar in taste to a mixture of milk and honey. This brew acts as both anesthesia, lulling those who consume it to sleep, and a regenerative concoction, reversing the effects of exposure and any injuries accumulated on the mountain range. Under the effects of SCP-XXXX-1, subjects will retain a consistent body temperature of 37°C.

After the subject is rendered unconscious, SCP-XXXX will anonymously produce a fur blanket2 and drape it over the sleeping subject. After approximately four seconds, the recipient will be teleported to the nearest ranger station.3 At this point, the effects of SCP-XXXX-1 ill begin to dissipate.

Interviews with hikers and other individuals whose survival is attributed to SCP-XXXX, can be found in Document XXXX-8c, while testing logs can be found in Documents XXXX-11a to XXXX-17h.

Addendum XXXX-A: On 3/18/14, further testing into the effective range of SCP-XXXX's anomalous properties has been postponed by the Ethics Committee, citing unnecessary use of resources
