A police dog who specialises in sniffing out money came to the aid of a desperate elderly Viennese couple who had mislaid their life savings and feared they had been stolen.

After the couple had turned their apartment upside down looking for the several thousand euros, police dog Evita de La Basse Autriche was called and "within minutes" came up trumps - finding the cash stashed away inside a box in a kitchen cupboard, Austrian police said on Tuesday.

The couple, who live in Floridsdorf, told police they wanted to take the cash to the bank and panicked when they couldn't find it.

"All police dogs all have the same basic training to detect different things," police spokesman Paul Eidenberger told AFP. "Then they can be specialised, for example for explosives, blood traces -- and also documents and money."
