K-9 Babs is an ATF Explosives Detection Canine assigned to the Miami Field Division with Special Agent Canine Handler (SACH) Zane Dodds. Her job is to find explosives, guns and ammunition. K-9 Babs is also an ATF Search Enhanced Evidence K-9 (S.E.E.K.) able to work off leash up to 150 yards away from her handler and detect more than 19,000 distinct odors. K-9 Babs started her training with the National Guide Dog for the Blind organization.
K-9 Babs and Special Agent Canine Handler Zane Dodds recently worked on a firearms trafficking case. Once the canine team arrived on scene, K-9 Babs began the hunt for evidence.
She alerted SACH Dodds about the find by displaying a change in her behavior. K-9 Babs recovered five loaded pistols hidden inside some flat screen TVs that were being smuggled out of the United States to Haiti.
