Video: Fire brigade’s cutest recruit - dog who can sniff out one drop of lighter fluid

Have your say

London Fire Brigade have showed off their newest recruit in a cute video which shows a puppy - who found a single drop of lighter fluid in a ‘burned out building’.

Trainee detection dog Murphy impressed crowds at the fire station open day in Croydon on Sunday by finding a tiny amount of fuel within seconds in a fire simulation. The young springer spaniel wore cute boots as he investigated the scent, which protect his paws from sharp objects on the floor after a fire. Traditionally the London Fire Brigade take in dogs at one-year-old but their latest recruits are being trained from puppies.
