King is a 10-year-old labrador retriever.

He’s an explosive detection canine for the TSA at the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport.

After seven years of dedicated service, his team sent him off on a well-deserved retirement with a bunch of tennis balls and even a retirement cake.

King has also worked a presidential inauguration and several big name sports events.

He lives at home with his handler Lance, and loves swimming at the beach, sleeping on the couch and eating.
