The TSA Wants You To Adopt All The Dogs Who Couldn't Hack It As Canine Agents

By Aimee Lutkin

The world is full of good dogs, but not all good dogs make good government agents. The Transportation Security Administration has had a program in place since 2015 to adopt out the doggos who didn't quite make it through the program. Some weren't up to being bomb sniffers, but that doesn't mean they wouldn't make good cuddlers. They're doing another push for forever homes to take in animals who tried so hard to serve the nation:

They're not all failures! Some are dogs who have served for a decade and are set for retirement. Give them a relaxing yard to chill out in, and rest on their laurels. But be warned: these are all dogs who were selected for their elevated level of “drive,” meaning they're extremely active. Probably even the retired dogs can run circles around you. The common breeds used by the TSA are German Short-Haired Pointers, Labrador Retrievers, German Shepherds and Belgian Malinois.
