The Russian airline Aeroflot spent 27 years combining the DNA of the Turkmen
Jackal with DNA of the Siberian Husky resulting in the world’s best breed of
sniffer dogs.

Alsatians that are more commonly used in the West.

have, apparently, been ruled out.
A new Aeroflot-run kennel in Moscow will raise the dogs and send them to
airports where they will patrol and sniff passengers' bags.
"They can sniff out certain explosives that machines can't trace," says Klim
Sulimov, Aeroflot's chief dog breeder.
