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.

The 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.

The 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.

The 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.

Though not as common, there are also dogs that go up for adoption that have been retired from government service.

You might be taking home a sporting breed such as a Labrador Retriever, German Shepherd, Belgian Malinois, or German Shorthaired Pointer.

If you're interested, you can send in your application to the email listed on their website. Every application is processed on a first-come, first-served basis, so now is the time to sit down and think about making that life-changing decision!

There are a few home requirements when looking to adopt a dog through the TSA, so be sure to check that out before applying. The TSA wants to make sure each dog finds its perfect forever home!

Adoptions are completely free, you are just required to bring a leash, collar, and crate when picking up your new four-legged friend.

The pups are currently located at the Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland in San Antonio, Texas, and all adopters are required to pick up their new furry friends at that location.

What are you waiting for? Go check out the list of the dogs currently waiting for a home on their site now.

You could make a big change to a pup who needs you to take them home. If you're ready for the responsibility, this is a great place to find a new best friend.
