Abused dog becomes airport customs inspector

When Murray the beagle arrived at the Northeast Georgia Animal Shelter, he was too injured for adoption, and was extremely nervous and anti-social. But as he was fostered by a member of Alcovy Pet Rescue, he became happy and energetic. and his caretaker noticed his amazing ability to sniff out food. He was always getting into her cabinets and prying open compartments.

Because he was so skillful at finding hidden food, he was entered into a training program with the U.S. Department of Agriculture to develop his abilities. On March 1, Murray graduated. He has been assigned by the customs department to sniff out illegal plants, food and produce within the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
