We have all heard of those brilliant crime dogs who can sniff out large amounts of illegal drugs, and bust the bad guys. However this incredible crime-fighting canine has gone a step further as she has set a record in catching crooks who trade in bootleg goods.
The Springer Spaniel, Dixie has such a keen nose she can even sniff out pirate DVDs. Dixie is the only dog in Scotland known to posses such amazing skills, which has left her in high demand from local authorities.
Somehow the incredible Dixie has been trained to detect the smell of the metal used in the manufacturing of film discs. Her owner, a former Ministry of Defense dog handler, said: “We deal with a lot of unsavory characters and are accompanied by police while we’re on jobs with trading standards. If Dixie can’t find any cigarettes she’ll offer up DVDs instead so she can be rewarded with a tennis ball.”
On their first outing they managed to haul £4,000 worth of bootleg cigarettes! So criminals in Scotland beware Dixie is coming for you!
