1. The Nose Knows: Lost And Found

When three girls in Georgia went missing during a leisurely stroll around the neighborhood, an entire task force was called to join in a frantic search for the missing girls. The fire department, police officers, and canine search and rescue all offered their assistance. However, it was actually the neighboring three-year-old chihuahua named Belle that found the girls alive and well.

I lived in East Africa as a teenager and our 2 guard dogs protected us when our home was invaded by thieves one night. The invaders fled the 'vigorous' attack by our dogs and didn't manage to steal anything or attack us (as had happened in several local houses over the previous few weeks - one man being killed, another seriously injured).

Saw most of these on the news. All dogs have a keen sense of smell and hearing. Another great reason to own a dog.
