Freya is an ATF Explosives Detection Canine assigned to the Albuquerque, New Mexico, Field Office with Special Agent Canine Handler Kristen Larsen. Freya is also an ATF Search Enhanced Evidence K-9 (S.E.E.K.), which allows her to work off leash away from her handler. Freya helps combat violent crime across the country by detecting explosives, firearms, ammunition and post blast debris.

She started her training with the Paws with a Cause organization. Due to her high energy level, it was determined Freya was better suited to be an explosives detection K-9. When not working, Freya loves playing with toys, chewing on sticks and saying hello to everyone she meets.
