SANANTONIO-- On a sunny Tuesday afternoon, KENS 5 was invited to visit the Transportation Security Administration's Canine Breeding and Development Center, commonly known as the Puppy Program, at Lackland Air Force Base.
Here, the team breeds working detector dogs, but it can't accomplish this goal without the help of citizens who can foster the babies until they turn about 12 months old.
Ultimately, these pups will protect airports, mass transit centers and even ferry boats with proper training.
The program has an ongoing need for potential foster families who must have a secure fenced yard anda car to take the dogs on errands or bring them in for checkups. There can be no more than two other dogs in the home, and of course, you must have the energy to raise the energetic puppy!
