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 has launched a series of stories about some of the most courageous dogs in the world: CIA K9 officers.

Check out of pages of active CIA K9 officers and those dogs who have been enshrined in the CIA 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.

CIA K9 Officer

NAME: Freida

BREED: Labrador retriever

SPECIALTY: explosive detection

BIRTHPLACE: undisclosed


Hello everyone! My name is Freida and I’m a black Lab. I was born July 8, 2004, and I weigh 54 pounds. I met my partner, Officer Lawrence, at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms Agency (ATF). We went through a 10-week training course to become certified in detecting explosives. During this time, Officer Lawrence and I became best friends, and now I look to him for all of my needs.

After successfully completing the training, Officer Lawrence brought me to the CIA. We are now a part of the K-9 team at the CIA. We help protect the Agency and the people who work there.

When work is over, I go home every night with Officer Lawrence. We have a lot of fun together. We like to play with a ball in the backyard and go for long walks and runs. On Sundays, we lounge around all day and watch football.
