Meet the world’s cutest losers – four-legged fur babies who failed in the final leg of their anti-terror training. The Transportation Security Administration’s TSA dog adoption program was envisioned to find homes for these brave dogs.
Post the 9/11 tragedy, TSA was founded in an effort to further prevent such onslaughts that posed a grave danger to man’s best friend. Dogs have ever since been serving the TSA department, to ensure freedom of movement for people and commerce across airports, railway stations, bus terminals, etc. Not all the fur babies that “apply” for the exams, make the cut. The Transportation Security Administration’s TSA dog adoption program was envisioned to find forever homes for these mutts, who are likely meant to roll in the sand and be the Marley to a lucky family.
TSA Dog Adoption
Every year the TSA seeks homes for dogs who’ve either failed TSA training or retired from the explosives detection business. Despite age affecting their performance, or failing the test “just because” – these dogs still have sensory powers ten thousand fold more powerful in comparison to humans. Our cute losers fall into the age group of 2 – 10 years and of disparate breeds, most common of which are German Short-Haired Pointers, Labrador Retrievers, German Shepherds and Belgian Malinois. All of them are neutered, spayed, loved and pampered and can be taken home for zero adoption fee.
If you’re convinced enough that this was THE adoption opportunity you were waiting for or some karmic connection with one of these cute losers calls to you, you’d want to prep for the following process:
- Applicants need to meet the adoption requirements and fill out the form.
- Photos and information on the dogs will be provided by TSA via email.
- The Adoption Coordinator will assist in identifying a dog that best suits applicant’s home and family.
- Applicants will need to provide a signed and notarized indemnity letter, travel to San Antonio to meet the dog and bring him home!
Of course, this dog isn’t the best to tell you all about TSA chaps, find out more for yourself – talk to the TSA adoption coordinator. Go on, write to him –AdoptaTSAcanine@OLE.tsa.dhs.gov
Nothing wrong can come from licks and cuddles from a loser looking so dashing, feeling so soft, having puppy breathe and a wagging tail. Let a furry adopt you today. There are only so many years we live, let’s experience love and failure together.
Don’t forget to share with this dog, pictures or comments of your pet.
Until next time, licks and wags!
