Bomb-Sniffing Dog Fired By CIA Finds Happy Ending

Lula sniffer dog CIA

'Sometimes, even after testing, our pups make it clear being an explosive detection K9 isn't for them, ' read the first post in the CIA's Twitter thread on Wednesday.

Not every dog has its day when it comes to completing the CIA's rigorous training program for explosives-detecting K9s.

Tough work: 'All dogs, like humans, have good & bad days when learning something new. The announcement went on to say they had to make a hard decision as to what is best for Lulu and that decision was to drop her from the explosive detection training program. The agency explains that dogs in this program often have an off day (or two), but that trainers can often figure out what's wrong-maybe the pup just needs extra playtime or rest, or there's a minor medical issue-and help the dog bounce back. After becoming a K9 dropout, Lulu returned to enjoy a more peaceful live as a civilian. Such is the case for one of the fall 2017 "puppy class" pups.

At least 6 killed, 10 injured in Quetta blast
Home Minister of Balochistan Sarfraz Bugti claimed that Islamic State is not operating in Pakistan , Samaa reported. He also said that these cowardly attacks would not hinder the security forces in executing their duties.

"But for some dogs like Lulu, it becomes clear the issue isn't temporary".

Lulu, the smallest puppy in her class, was training at Fairfax County Police Department in Virginia when she started exhibiting disinterest in the program.

But it is not all bad news, as handlers have the option to adopt dogs who are dropped. The dogs are their partners and have become members of their family, even after just a few weeks of training together.

Senate Dem hammers FCC Chair for response to Trump tweet
The agency does not issue similar licenses for cable networks such as CNN and MSNBC, or regulate internet news or other websites. Schatz is ranking member of the Senate Communications Subcommittee, which has primary jurisdiction over the FCC.

The CIA went on to say they will miss Lulu, but they believe it is the best decision for the Labrador and they went on to wish her everything of the best for her new life.

She's happier now, and able to spend her time doing things she truly loves: playing with kids, hanging out in the backyard and eating snacks.

Lulu was in training to join the intelligence group's K-9 unit, which is tasked with tracking down bombs and other explosives by scent alone.
