Alphie T005 — Law Enforcement and Detection
Alphie is a retired explosives detection dog who served his country in the Marines as well as department of homeland security/TSA. He has received the American Humane medal of courage for his service in Afghanistan working with the Marines as well as continuing to work for the department of homeland security/TSA as a passenger screening explosives detection canine for four years after the military deployment. He is a gentle giant, always sweet and polite with tremendous work ethic. He enjoys his time now at his home with his handler in Florida. He still continues to swim in the pool as well as search drainage pipes on his daily walks – always hunting for some thing! In 2017 Alphie was reunited with his Marine handler at the presentation of his medal of courage in Washington DC on Capitol Hill.
