Looking for a few good dogs
NEW YORK (AP) - November 24, 2010 -- New York City is looking to hire a couple of patrol dogs.
But the canines won't be sniffing for bombs or drugs.
They'll put their noses to work finding bedbugs.
The city housing department has put out a formal request for the bedbug hunting pooches.
A department spokesman was says the dogs probably won't be sniffing for the city until next spring or summer.
The City Council is providing the money.
Bedbug infestations have surged in the city and have New Yorkers and visitors itching for a solution.
