A SPECIALIST fire dog has sniffed his way onto the internet with a new social networking page.

Fire investigation dog CC, a five-year-old black Labrador, is one of only 17 dogs with his specialist training in the country and he now has a Facebook page.

He and his owner Nikki Harvey have been working as a team in Hertfordshire since 2007.

Nikki said: “CC and I work to find out the cause of fires but also work in the community fire safety team to reduce the amount of arson in the county.

“We hope people will ‘like’ CC on Facebook to hear what he’s been up to and to get the latest fire prevention tips.

“I love working with CC, he’s a real character who loves his job because work to him is one big game!”

CC, who wears special fire boots to protect his paws at fire scenes, has been trained to sniff out traces of ignitable liquids such as petrol, paraffin and lighter fluid,.
