Eager Beagle Returns Lost Items to Fliers, Deemed ‘Real Asset’ to Airline

KLM’s newest employee is its furriest ever.

Sherlock, a beagle, returns items forgotten on planes by passengers flying into Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. “We train for muscle strength, endurance and, of course, socialization,” says Dirk Van Driel, trainer of the incredibly talented canine. “When you see the reactions of the passengers, that really is amazing,” he adds with a smile.



The YouTube video garnered well over 600,000 views in less than 24 hours, proving that dogs still wield viral power in the realm of digital content. (Note: Sherlock is merely a marketing stunt and doesn’t actually return lost items to customers, nor does he “work” for the KLM in any way.)
