Cody started off as a hunting dog in Canada then was purchased by ATF in 2009 from a breeder in Florida. Originally, he was trained as part of the Suicide Bomber Initiative and switched over to Explosives Detection through ATF. He was assigned to his handler in 2012 for a federal agency within the DOD. He completed extensive training, events, inauguration, demonstrations, and assignments in the Washington DC area. In 2014, Cody’s handler received a new position as their family expanded and he was retired. Retirement was quite an adjustment, but we try keeping him active outdoors: playing ball, hiking, swimming, and he loves the snow!
