I was on the youboobs and came across a news video of a pit bull trained as a drug sniffing dog. While I would hate for the dog to find my stash, I was impressed.

I don't know how to put the links in.

I didn't watch the video but don't see why a pitbull couldn't be trained to do drug detection or any other job. They are an intelligent breed and with the gift of a good nose and the right trainer should be capable of doing many jobs. It doesn't suprize me at all.

Check out Popsicle's story, he was fund during a police investigation, and became a US Customs top drug sniffing dog:

ht tp://www.cbp.gov/xp/CustomsToday/2002/October/k9.xml

They tried to do that with another dog from a drug bust, Cokey a Sheepdog who was discovered being used to smuggle drugs on a plane... She was nursed back to health but did not make the cut in training and instead became a mascot of sorts, they brought her around for drug awareness programs.

There are also SAR pit bulls and others, some you can read about here:
