The TSA’s Puppy Program was created to support the National Explosives Detection Canine Team Program.  The puppy program breeds the dogs necessary for the teams of dogs and handlers created under the National Explosives Detection Canine Team Program.  The dogs who graduate from the program are put into teams with handlers and are assigned to airports or other mass transit systems, while those who fail to graduate are adopted out.  The dogs are bred and trained at the Lackland AirForce Base in Lackland, Texas.


The Puppy Program is a breeding program combined with the Puppy Walker Foster Program.  This is the program that sends the puppies to volunteer families to be raised between the ages of 9 weeks to 12 months.


The puppies are part of the Transportation Security Administration’s Canine Breeding and Development Center. The program, also referred to as the TSA’s Puppy Program, is designed to raise dogs to be explosives detecting dogs within the TSA. Puppies who make the grade when it comes to general health and well-being, socialization, ability to seek out their favorite toy and other factors will move on to the Department of Defense Military Working Dog Program housed at Lackland Air Force Base, 

Also known as San Antonio Livestock Exposition, Inc. (S.A.L.E.) has grown to one of the largest, most prestigious single events in the city of San Antonio, with over one million visitors entering the grounds each year. The success of S.A.L.E. is attributed to over 6,000 volunteers who give countless hours to the organization. With community, donor and volunteer support, the organization has donated more than $160.1 million to the youth of Texas through scholarships, grants, endowments, auctions, programs and show premiums.
