A Lackland Air Force Base program trains young Labradors to become explosive-detecting dogs that work for the Transportation Security Administration. Since its inception in 2002, the TSA program has more than 800 dogs working in mass-transit environments all across the nation. But these animals need loving homes in the San Antonio area during their training. The government pays for the dog's every need during the entire stay. The TSA canines live with the families for about 10 months.
