Subject: Potential Canine Narcotic Dogs
To:

Hi all~
I have spoken with a State Trooper out here in Parker County regarding testing potential dogs for the Drug Sniffing training program. He tested 11 dogs today and chose 0.
I am trying to set up a testing day for more dogs.
This is a great opportunity for rescue groups to bring some dogs and have them tested and possibly give them not only a home but a job.
The program has one training class a year and there is one in January so the  time is now to find qualified dogs. The trooper has found that shelter dogs are the best candidates, in fact the State no longer "buys" dogs for this, they find them at shelters and rescues.
The main characteristic they are looking for is a "Frantic Desire to Retrieve!"
These dogs must want to go anywhere at anytime to retrieve.( I think we've all had a lab or two like that!)
They only have 3 dogs so far and they need over 10 to even have the class in January.
So,
We are out in Parker County and can have the testing done at a Little League field out here. It will be private and fenced in and have enough distractions for him to do the testing.
I can transport dogs from the Metroplex if need be and could provide transportation for others as well.
What I do need is a response from your groups as to what dogs you may have and if you are willing to bring them or have me pick them up and then return them. I could even possible keep overnight if the need arises.
The breed isn't important, he has seen mostly labs, border collies, shepherds etc. but the Trooper also told me that Beagles have done a good job and are used at the airports because they aren't as aggressive-looking to the average traveler as say, a German Shepherd.
Please contact me and let me know if you're interested.
If there are other programs out there that you guys are involved in such as this,  I am not trying to step on any toes, I am just trying to see if we can help some dogs out there.
Let me know as soon as you can and once again, thanks for all you guys do!!
