The Good News – Flint, the Cancer Detecting Wonder Dog
Your dose of paw-sitive news

Like his aunt Daisy before him, Flint the fox red Labrador is joining the ranks of Medical Detection Dogs on the hunt for cancer. As a detection dog, Flint is putting his nose muscles to the test in order to recognize specific odours in the urine of cancer patients which could lead to earlier detection of disease. With Daisy facing retirement after 9 years, Flint is primed to follow in her paw steps as part of the ever growing detection team.
