Central Intelligence Agency fires dog who didn't enjoy explosive detection training

A few weeks into training, Lulu was showing signs that she wasn't particularly interested in sniffing explosives, according to a blog on the CIA's website. Lulu was no longer interested in searching for explosives.

The agency wrote posted an image of the pup with the caption, "she was clearly no longer enjoying herself". Same for our pups, though it usually lasts just a day or two'.

A bomb-sniffing pup just couldn't make the cut for the CIA's explosive detection canine training program. Meet Lulu, the black Labrador retriever and free spirit who bucked expectations and flunked out of the C.I.A.'s explosive detection "puppy class". Our trainers' top concern is the physical and mental well-being of our dogs, so they made the extremely hard decision to do what's best for Lulu and drop her from the program.

Instead, she'll be living with her handler, who chose to adopt her even though she won't be sniffing out bombs.

"We'll miss Lulu, but this was the right decision for her", the Central Intelligence Agency said.

The K9 trainers made the hard decision to drop Lulu from the program.

In the beginning, Lulu worked alongside her fellow four-legged trainees, learning to sniff on command.

In the end, all parties seem to be much happier with this new arrangement.

Her handler adopted Lulu and she's now a playmate for his kids rather than a working dog. The same is true during our puppy classes.

Employees at the training facility had tried to figure out why Lulu had stopped performing, as some dogs do lose interest in their training. Lulu was a adopted by her loving handler, who had the chance to work with her during imprint training. She now lives with her new family and has a pal in fellow labrador, Harry.
