I’m about as obsessed with dogs as I am with travel. Of course, having a dog when you travel a lot is tough, so for now I just mooch off my friends’ pets when I need some puppy cuddles. If I were to get a dog, though, I might consider adopting one from the TSA: they have a Canine Adoption Program!
(Fair warning: I’m going to use some very technical dog-related terminology in this post.)
The Canine Adoption Program offers young dogs, usually 2-4 years old, a new leash on life after they are heckin’ bamboozled by (translation: flunk out of) TSA Pupper Training University (that’s not really what it’s called). Instead of checking people’s pawsports and fighting global terrierism, these pupperinos can enjoy the dognified, comfurtable life of a family pet.
They also occasionally place doggie retirees (former TSA canines). (Do the retired dogs receive government pensions? If so, I’ll take three!)
Right now there’s a long waiting list of people looking to adopt these doggos, so if you’re looking to get a big ol’ floofer of your own, check back on the program’s website in August when they might accept new applications.
I wonder if you can adopt human TSA agents who flunk out of the training program…
