TSA dogs up for adoption

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The Transportation Security Administration is looking for forever homes for explosive detection dogs that didn't make it through the training program or have retired from the explosives detection business.

According to a news release, there is no cost to adopt a TSA canine. The dogs typically range in age from two to 10 years. The breeds usually include German Short-Haired Pointers, Labrador Retrievers, German Shepherds and Belgian Malinois. Some are well trained, others are not. All are spayed or neutered prior to adoption.

Those who undergo the application process will have to travel to San Antonio, Texas to pick up their new dog. People interested can contact the TSA Adoption Coordinator via email at: AdoptaTSAcanine@OLE.tsa.dhs.gov.
