The incredible story of Kossi

According to a Finnish study, dogs trained to sniff out diseases are showing “fantastic” results in terms of detecting people with COVID-19 infection. One of the dogs that made this possible was Kössi.

Kossi was rescued and taken to a shelter

Adopted from the rescue center and brought to a home in Finland

Kossi displayed an unusual interest in the mouths of two other pets living in the same home

On examination, these pets were found to have cancer

Kossi's incredible power to sniff out diseases was discovered

Two dogs were selected for the preliminary study at the University of Helsinki to detect COVID-19
