INDIANAPOLIS — 2022 is off to a paw-sitive start for Transportation Security Administration Canine Ari.
Ari, a 5-year-old German Shorthaired Pointer, is the featured dog in the TSA's 2022 calendar for the month of September. He is an explosion detection canine at the Indianapolis International Airport who is specially trained to detect the scent of explosive materials.
TSA’s canine teams are most often seen at an airport working in the security checkpoint and there are more than 1,000 explosives detection canine teams deployed nationwide.
Ari's tasks include screening passengers, cargo, mass-transit and maritime systems as well as supporting other security missions.
Outside of work, Ari loves an old-fashioned Milk-Bone, ice cubes, KONG toys and other balls.
