Lulu the dog casts aside her Central Intelligence Agency dreams

Lulu the dog casts aside her Central Intelligence Agency dreams

But the trainee's dismissal has captured the hearts of dog lovers because the fired agent is a bomb-sniffing dog named Lulu. The CIA tried to motivate her with food and playtime but Lulu, presumably a longtime defender of human rights overseas, was sceptical about working for an agency with a long history of election intrusion, warrantless surveillance and assassinations.

But it says that for Lulu, it was clear the issue is not temporary.

Lulu is a black Labrador who was receiving explosive detection training at the Fairfax County Police Department in Virginia. Even when they could motivate her with food and play to search, she was clearly not enjoying herself any longer.

Lulu was being trained by the Central Intelligence Agency to work for Fairfax County Police Department in Virginia.

The agency went on to write that this lack of motivation isn't uncommon but is normally just the result of a bad day or two. She was adopted and will now spend her days chasing rabbits and squirrels in the garden. After becoming a K9 dropout, Lulu returned to enjoy a more peaceful live as a civilian.

Lulu's story gives us some fascinating insight into the CIA's dog-training program.

The CIA is announcing Friday the newest addition to the fall 2017 puppy class, with the hopes of a flawless match.
