The bloodhound is the most sensitive dog. It has 300 million receptors on its olfactory membrane. Bloodhounds do not bite. This makes them incredibly useful when searching for missing children. The downside of the Bloodhound is that it can only search for humans. The German Shepherd is the preferred breed for military and police forces around the world. The British Beagle is one of the best dogs on our list. It possesses 220 million smell receptors, the average for a larger dog. The Beagle will be a great asset to tracking needs with the right training. The Malinois is made for working. The Labrador Retriever is a medium sized dog characterized by friendliness, outgoing personality, and fun. The Lab and the Beagle are not aggressive dogs in this category. The Coonhound is known for its ability to find raccoons with ease and cunningness. However, it is lost in an urban environment, requiring the great outdoors for survival, making it a terrible choice for an indoor family pet. . . .
