Retiring TSA bomb-sniffing dogs need a good home

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - A few furry government employees need a good home.

We're talking about retiring bomb-sniffing dogs with the Transportation Security Administration or pups who didn't make the cut.

There is no cost to adopt a TSA canine, but the pups must be picked up from San Antonio, Texas.

The dogs typically range in age from two to 10 years and the breeds usually include German Short-Haired Pointers, Labrador Retrievers, German Shepherds and Belgian Malinois. The dogs available for adoption were procured to serve as working dogs, and their breeds were selected for their elevated level of "drive," and thus are very active. Some are well trained, others are not.

People interested in adoption must submit an application.

If interested in adopting one of the dogs contact the TSA Adoption Coordinator via email
