NICK EICHER, HOST: Sometimes where technology fails, man’s best friend delivers.

Elsa Green was enjoying a day on the beach with her family in Eagle River, Michigan until she realized had lost her wedding ring in the sand.

A man with a metal detector hunted for the ring, but he was unable to find it.

So Green walked to a nearby sheriff’s office to ask for help. A deputy told her there was really nothing they could do. But a short time later, Sgt. Brad Pelli arrived with his K-9 named Dogo.

The dog then began searching for the ring and it took him only a few minutes to find it.

Sgt. Pelli told WBUP-tv...

PELLI: Part of the dog’s training is just article search, so anything with human odor he’s trained to find. Mostly it’s just going to be on crime scenes, whether it be a knife or a gun or anything with human odor.

A grateful Elsa Green says she plans to bring Dogo some ice cream soon to say thank you.

It’s The World and Everything in It.
