Can't find the leak? This dog is here to help

SHOWS: LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS, UNITED STATES (NOVEMBER 19, 2019) (ORIGINALLY SHOT IN PORTRAIT) (JANIE RUNKLE/ ARKANSAS DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS - NO RESALE / MUST ON SCREEN COURTESY JANIE RUNKLE/ ARKANSAS DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS) 1.

CENTRAL ARKANSAS WATER LEAK DETECTION SPECIALIST STEPHEN SULLIVAN AND RESCUE DOG VESSEL / VESSEL SNIFFING OUT CONTAINERS OF WATER HIDDEN IN PILES OF LEAVES / VESSEL LYING DOWN NEXT TO PILE OF LEAVES AND BARKING / SULLIVAN THROWING TENNIS BALL FOR VESSEL STORY: Meet Vessel, a new member of the Central Arkansas Water and the first "water leak detection dog" in the United States, according to the Arkansas Paws in Prison Foundation.

The video filmed recently in Little Rock shows Vessel sniffing out piles of leaves and looking for a hidden container of water.

"Vessel can identify the location of a leak in the water system by smelling the gases of the chemicals that are added to city water such as chlorine," the foundation told Reuters.

"Once she finds the location of a leak, she marks the spot by laying down and barking." Vessel came to the foundation from the Villalobos Rescue Center in Louisiana and was trained for months.

A mixed labrador and golden retriever, Vessel is one-and-a-half-year-old and was found abandoned in the middle of a sugar cane field, along with her siblings.

Arkansas Paws in Prison is the program 'committed to rehabilitating inmates and giving shelter dogs a second chance at life', according to the Arkansas Department of Correction website.
