Dogs are the best thing that has happened to human beings and, though it doesn’t need any proof, a recent incident in Mumbai again proved it correct when a sniffer dog of the Mumbai Police’s Bomb Disposal and Detection Squad traced a kidnapped six-year-old boy in just 90 minutes.

The pooch, named Leo, a Doberman, found the kidnapped boy 500 metres away from his home in the Ashok Nagar slum in the suburban Andheri (East) area of the city.
According to the police, the child went missing on November 23, while playing with his friends near his home.
When he did not return home for long, his family members expressed concern and initiated a search, but they couldn’t find him, following which they approached the police for help in finding the child.
The family told the police that the boy had changed clothes before going out to play. The police brought in Leo and gave him the boy’s t-shirt to sniff.
After sniffing the boy’s t-shirt, Leo started his hunt and traced the boy to a nearby building.
Further investigation in the case is still on to nab the unidentified kidnappers.
