KANSAS CITY, Missouri (KSHB) -- Elvis the Beagle from Shawnee, Kan., is getting national attention for his unique talent.

He was trained by Matt Skogen, owner of Iron Heart High Performance Working Dogs company.

With one whiff of a fecal sample from a female polar bear, Elvis can determine if the polar bear is pregnant.

Even the Kansas City Zoo is asking Elvis for help.

"Elvis is an amazing dog," Skogen said. "It never ceases to amaze me the skills these dogs have."

Elvis' accuracy rating is 95 percent.
