What breeds of dogs are available?

TSA utilizes a variety of large breed dogs. You may see sporting breeds, such as Labrador Retrievers and German Shorthaired Pointers available for adoption. Occasionally there will be German Shepherds or Belgian Malinois. Typically, German Shepherds and Belgian Malinois are transferred to Law Enforcement agencies and cannot be adopted by the general public. 

Breed or gender specific requests will lengthen your wait time.
