Truffle hunting terrier

The Daily Mail (14th October 1012) managed to pick up on this story before us, but we liked it so much we thought we would share it with you…When Nellie the English bull terrier kept digging up the back garden, her owners were not best pleased. But it turned out Nellie wasn’t just enjoying a little meaningless destruction – she was busy discovering a gold mine.

Nellie has been finding truffles for the past six years – uncovering 500 grams of the fungi this year alone.
