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: Larry

BREED: Labrador Retriever

SPECIALTY: explosive detection

BIRTHPLACE: New York, United States


My name is Larry. I was born in New York on Jan. 4, 2003. My first owner breeds Labs to be working dogs. I learned basic obedience and got used to all different kinds of environments. And that was just the beginning of my training.

After my first year of basic training, I met my partner, Officer Rick, in July 2004. We trained at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives K-9 training center, for 10 weeks.

I am always busy trying to sniff out explosives.  After spending the day at work, I love to jump and play in the water at home. Every afternoon, I run through the lawn sprinkler and splash in the kiddy pool in my backyard.
