Hi! My name is Dean, and I am a black Lab. I was born on Sept. 26, 2006, I am an Explosive Detection dog. I was raised by prisoners in a program called “Puppies Behind Bars.” They taught me how to sit, stay, and fetch. After that, I went to train with Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), and that is where I met my partner, K-9 Officer Lloyd.
I love going to work every morning with Officer Lloyd. We have a long ride into work, but he always lets me sleep so that way I am rested for our busy day! My main job at CIA is to search vehicles for explosives. It’s important that I keep the employees at CIA safe.
When I get home from work, I love to chase my German shepherd sister around. Her name is Gabby. We take turns running all over the house and sometimes Officer Lloyd and his wife yell at us, but it’s still really fun! My favorite toys are my KONG, socks, and my rope. Gabby tries to take it from me, but I am much stronger! When I am not playing, I love to take naps. Officer Lloyd says I’m a sleepy head. Gabby and I love to curl up on the bed and snooze.
I look forward to going all over the world with Officer Lloyd. I love my new family and my job very much!
