A stray dog has passed all the tests needed to become a sniffer dog for Shanghai Customs, the customs said on Tuesday.
Nick, a springer spaniel, was tested along with another 59 candidates and will now have a chance to work in the city's airports, railway stations and ports from next year.
Nick was spotted by customs dog handler Cheng Baolin in June this year.
