If you've been looking for a sign to finally go out and adopt a new furry friend, this is it! Bringing a new family member home from a life in a shelter or an unstable home is the most rewarding and exciting experience. Now, you can adopt a failed TSA training dog for free in Texas and give a home to a fuzzy pal who needs one as soon as possible.\nThe Transportation Security Administration, or the TSA, is currently looking for loving individuals and families to take home a fun and caring dog that didn't meet the TSA Canine Training Center criteria for government work.\nThe dogs that are up for adoption are very active and medium to large in size. They have been proved unfit for working with the government for a variety of reasons, from getting too old to having allergies to orthopedic problems.\nThe TSA claims that the dogs may be untrained and not housebroken but can be trained into being a family dog with love, care, and patience.\nThough not as common, there are also dogs that go up for adoption that have been retired from government service.\nYou might be taking home a sporting breed such as a Labrador Retriever, German Shepherd, Belgian Malinois, or German Shorthaired Pointer.\nView this post on Instagram Talk about #SquadGoals! Forget wearing pink on Wednesdays…this team prefers cargo pants and the occasional tennis ball…soo fetch! From left…meet Rex, Perry, and Bobi and their people posse… Amanda, Chris, and Chris at Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW). Passenger Screening Canine Handlers undergo a 12-week training course to become trained in traditional explosive detection and passenger screening. There are more than 900 TSA canine teams deployed nationwide that are tasked with screening passengers, cargo, and other security missions. So you’ll most likely catch them at an airport but they could also pop up in places like let’s say Miami….in February. 😉🏈 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #TSAjobs #SuperBowl54 #SBLIV #ThePlastics #TSAK9 #happytraveler #WorkingdogsofIG #dogsofinstagram #K9life #WorkingK9 #Airportdiaries #security A post shared by TSA (@tsa) on Oct 9, 2019 at 12:06pm PDT\nIf you're interested, you can send in your application to the email listed on their website.

The TSA wants to make sure each dog finds its perfect forever home!\nView this post on Instagram It’s happening… OH.My.GAWD! ⠀ HOW YOU DOIN’? To all our F●R●I●E●N●D●S… especially those from 🗣 NEW YORK, you know we are always there for you… like we’ve been there before. We were on a break ⏰ but allow us to espresso ourselves… on some new changes coming your way. ⠀ Don’t be latte in getting your REAL ID! Without a REAL ID compliant ID, an enhanced driver’s license or an acceptable alternate form of ID this fall, you just won’t get far! REAL ID-compliant cards are marked with a star at the top of the card. Legacy Ohio driver’s licenses have a gold star marking on the card, however REAL ID compliant Ohio driver’s licenses have a black cut-out star. Michigan, Vermont, Minnesota, and New York states issue REAL ID and state-issued enhanced driver’s licenses, both of which are acceptable. Washington state issues enhanced driver’s licenses only. State-issued enhanced driver's licenses are marked with a flag. So which one do you have? ⭐️🇺🇸 ⠀ So don’t get turned away at the airport and get ahead of the upcoming changes. Check your local state driver’s license agency’s requirements TODAY! For a list of acceptable alternate identification, see the link in our bio. ⠀ MEET THE CAST... our amazing working K9s.

Don is the nose, and his handler is definitely the muscle. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When Don isn’t working, he spends time with the family where they pay tribute with belly rubs. Don is such a good boy that he scores treats on the regular. You might say that his cuteness is an offer they can’t refuse. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So the next time you’re at the airport and you want to pet a TSA canine… “fuggetaboutit!” They are diligently working to keep travelers safe. You can learn more about our explosive detection canines on our website. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #TheGodfather #DogsofInstagram #WorkingDogs #Dogstagram #Travel #AirportLife A post shared by TSA (@tsa) on Jul 2, 2019 at 12:46pm PDT\nWhat are you waiting for?
