Truffle dogs sniff out pungent fungus prized by foodies

The growing appetite for truffles is feeding demand for dogs trained to sniff out the pungent fungus prized by chefs and foodies.

America’s growing appetite for truffles is feeding demand for dogs trained to sniff out the prized fungi beneath the ground. Most truffles, known as the diamonds of the culinary world, come from Italy and France and have to be imported for as much as $2,500 per pound. Now a small but growing truffle industry is taking root in Napa Valley and other U.S. regions where farmers are cultivating them or foragers seek them in the wild.
