One morning in 2010, a pest inspector came to a home in Brooklyn, New York, to search for bedbugs. However, the inspector wasn't a person--he was a dog named Cruiser! This puggle (a cross between a pug and a beagle) was able to sniff out the bedbugs in the family's home so that they wouldn't get bitten by the blood-sucking insects. Cruiser is one of about 150 dogs that have been trained to detect pests. Some dogs specialize in finding bedbugs, while others hunt for termites, which can eat through the wood in a house, or mealybugs, which can destroy farmers' crops and trees. Thanks to the work of pest-sniffing dogs, the harmful bugs can be detected before serious damage is done. In this book, young readers will meet the hardworking dogs that use their keen sense of smell to locate pests. Packed with real-life stories and full-color photos of pest-sniffing dogs at work, this book is sure to be a favorite of dog-lovers everywhere.
