CIA K9 HALL of FAME: Dallas the Black Labrador

While 4leggers has grown into a site that offers fact sheets, helpful tips, and feature stories about all four-legged mammals from household cats to mountain lions, bears, elephants and even mice, the foundation of 4leggers is our love of dogs.

To help educate the public about how important canines are to our everyday life, even though we often don’t know it, 4leggers is launching a series of stories about some of the most courageous dogs in the world. To kick off the series, we’re focusing on the best of the best: the retired working dogs of the K9 Corps of the Central Intelligence Agency who have been enshrined in the CIA’s K9 Hall of Fame.

If you know of any courageous dogs – whether working dogs or just a neighbor’s dog who saved a life or did something courageous – please contact us and we’ll follow up about doing a story: change [at] sherpamultimedia [dot] com.


NAME: Dallas

BREED: Labrador Retriever

SPECIALTY: explosive detection

BIRTHPLACE: Dallas, Texas


My name is Dallas, and I come from Dallas, Texas. Everyone says I look a lot like my sister Maggie. She is the other black Labrador in the CIA K-9 Corps.

Officer Carlos is my human partner. We get along great and we have a lot in common. We like to jog, we love R&B and Hip Hop music, and we love to watch “Animal Planet” on TV. It’s important to get along with the people you work with. I’m very lucky that I get along so well with Officer Carlos.

Through my adventures at the CIA, I’ve learned to bark in seven different languages. That’s a good skill to have at the CIA!
