Bear belongs to the International Fund for Animal Welfare Australia (IFAW). He is taken good care of by his handlers at the centre for Detection Dogs for Conservation. A dog has a sense of smell that is almost 10,000 times stronger than humans. The IFAW usually trains formerly-sheltered, highly-active dogs -- who may otherwise never be adopted -- to sniff out koalas.
