New snif­fer dogs to greet trav­el­ers

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

Border con­trol au­thor­i­ties in New Zealand say they’ve cre­ated a new breed of “su­per dog” to sniff out un­wel­come items on vis­i­tors to New Zealand. The Min­istry for Pri­mary In­dus­tries has used bea­gles and har­rier hounds for the work, but last month a de­tec­tor bea­gle pro­duced a lit­ter of six pups after mat­ing with an MPI har­rier. The new dogs would be about the size of a labrador.
