Japan Trains Police Chihuahua

This little gal’s going to have quite the following: Japan has trained what may be the world’s first ever police Chihuahua—a long-hair, 6.6-pound dog named Momo, who passed exams in Nara. Momo was one of 32 dogs to pass the test, which required them to find a person in less than five minutes after sniffing the person’s cap. The hope is that seven-year-old Momo will prove particularly useful in rescuing people after disasters like earthquakes, when she’ll be able to search in small spots that other dogs wouldn’t fit into.
