Dogs Trained To Steal Cell Phones!

Police in China have apparently stated a warning against dogs that suspiciously sniff, or take interest in locals' cell phones. Apparently, it's common for criminals in the area to train their dogs to sneak into people's homes to steal mobile phones that are then sold on to unknowing buyers. Talk about a dog trick!

The good news is, some trainers are using the ability to train dogs to sniff out cell phones for good. One British dog is on trial at a Norwich Prison, where he has been specially trained to hunt out the mobile phone handsets - which have a particular scent. Apparently, cell phones pose a giant risk in prisons and about 500 have been found in jails in East Anglia in the past year. Talk about a rescue dog!
