SALT LAKE CITY - (KSTU via CNN) - Police in Utah have recruited an unlikely ally in the fight against child pornography.
The pooch named URL (pronounced Earl) is a black Lab trained for detecting electronic storage devices.
Affectionately dubbed "porn dog" by the department, URL operates by sniffing out chemicals used in storage media.
URL comes from the same trainer as the K-9 that helped arrest former Subway pitchman Jared Fogle.
"I think everyone was pretty skeptical. Really? A dog that can detect electronics?" said Lt. Lane Findlay of the Weber County Sheriffs Office. "He certainly has some unique abilities, and we're excited to have him."
URL will go to work with the FBI, Homeland Security and many other agencies.
He is one of nine certified electronic detection K9s in the country.
I was talking to a guy who had an exterminator over to his place that used a beagle to detect bedbugs.
Pinging Dayglored, Shadow Ace, and Thunder Sleeps.

Is that the dog that ate Hillary’s emails?
“PORN DOG” -— you gotta love it. He could find a destroyed Hillary hard drive full of classified emails under 100 feet of water....
That’s Roscoe the beagle.
The bed bug dog.
I thought Roscoe was just a PR dude.
This guy said this beagle had an amazing 100% accuracy rate.
There is no end to the miracles, that are dogs.
I'm skeptical that different manufacturers use the same (or, even, similar) adhesives...
There’s good money in bedbug dogs in Orange County, CA. Hotels hire them.
Great. A glue sniffing dog.
Note to self. Where not to stay when visiting Orange County, CA.
I love dogs... and Beagles are one of the finest breeds IMO :-)
I’m most fond of Border Collies and Australian Shepherds :-)
I’d like to pet the dog that sniffed out the kiddie porn drive... Good Doggie! Here’s a whole roast chicken for you as a reward :-)
[My Border Collie just loves cooked chicken.]
lol. I don’t know how many outbreaks there have been, if any, but I know that the big hotels surrounding Disneyland hire these dogs to make sure that their rooms stay free of bedbugs. Very bad publicity at some expensive hotels if that were to happen.
Makes it harder to fight the war on drugs.
But dogs seem to be born with the ability to sniff out...um...body lice...
I only wish they’d had “another kind of dog” to deal with the owner of the kiddie porn.
“Good Doggie! Heres a whole roast chicken for you as a reward :-)”
For a second, I thought that was a Game Of Thrones/The Hound reference.
They should sick pit bull dogs with rabies & aids on these sick puppies
Swordmaker, I was expecting an Apple product tie-in. Maybe you liked the name URL? Anyway, that black lab has very interesting eyes and expression on his face which makes me wonder if he has above normal sense of smell even for dogs? Or maybe the pouch was unhappy being posed on those hot rocks!?
No matter how many times I see that joke, it still gets me. And I have had dogs like meth lab before.
