North Yorkshire Police has shared a picture of one of its canine colleagues looking extremely proud of himself after sniffing out a huge haul of cocaine.

According to a post on Facebook from the force, Atom found cocaine worth £12,500 in a car during a traffic stop.

A picture was taken of the black sprocker spaniel looking very satisfied with his day’s work which has proven pretty popular online, with over 2,000 likes.

Some commenters asked if they could borrow Atom to sniff out things they had lost. One said: “Does he sniff out cash cos [sic] my daughter has lost her purse in our house and we can’t find it, if he does can I borrow him cos [sic] my dogs are useless.”

Others complemented the pooch on his skills, passing on their good wishes to Atom.

Here’s Atom showing off his skills in 2014 with handler PC Potter.

What a good boy.
