Gluten smelling dog featured on USA Today

Elias Mes Yeux Vigilants RN is AKC Grand Champion Beauceron and an amazing service dog.  He accompanies his owner, Hollie Scott, 22 around the University of Missouri campus.  His purpose - to detect gluten, even small amounts, in Hollie's meals.

The dog spent weeks in Slovenia completing gluten-detection training late last year (he and Scott returned at the very end of November, then rested a couple of days before heading out for the Long Beach competition), and now he can detect and warn her away from anything containing gluten, hot or cold, in all its many manifestations.
