Listener sniffs out Ellie

A John Laws listener led the search to find the NSW Fire Brigade’s missing sniffer dog after 2UE called for assistance in tracking down the four year old Labrador named Ellie.

Ellie is the only sniffer dog in Australia trained to detect accelerants. She went missing in Sydney this week while on a training exercise.

Ellie was later found a few kilometres away from where she disappeared after a John Laws listener spotted her and called the Fire Brigade. The runaway was soon reunited with her trainer, who presented Laws with an award to thank him for his efforts in finding her.
