New guard on duty at Boston art museum: K-9 Riley
The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston has a new guard dog. But he's not looking for thieves, but insects and pests that could damage the art.
Riley the Weimaraner was chosen because the breed has a keen sense of smell and the ability to find pests humans can't find.
Museum officials said they believe they are the only ones using a dog to protect art.
Riley belongs to and will be trained by Nicki Luongo, the museum's director of protective services.
He will not be seen by any visitors.
