Molly, Sweden’s anti-doping dog, gives cheats new problem to chew on

In an ice hockey hall in northern Stockholm, Molly, a four-year-old springer spaniel, busily searches for substances her handlers have planted in locker rooms, shoes and trash cans. The dog is training in a practice session for a role her handlers say is unique to her – sniffing out powders, tablets and liquids used by drug cheats to gain an advantage in sport. Sweden’s Sports Confederation says Molly is the world’s first anti-doping dog, introduced to the job last spring in a bid to broaden the country’s efforts in curtailing the use of performance-enhancing drugs in sport. Originally from Northern Ireland, Molly stayed with a Swedish customs officer before going to live with Sjoo and his wife Joanna.
