And you thought people were worried about getting goosed by TSA agents? Turns out, the Transportation Security Administration is saying bye-bye to their airport screening dogs with pointy ears...because pointy-eared pooches are "too scary” for kids.
“We’ve made a conscious effort in TSA… to use floppy ear dogs,” says TSA honcho David Pekoske. “We find the passenger acceptance of floppy ear dogs is just better. It presents just a little bit less of a concern, doesn’t scare children.”
But that doesn’t mean all of their pointy-eared dogs are out of the job. They’ll reportedly use breeds like German shepherd and Belgian Malinois for everything other than screening passengers.
