Chattanooga’s Superpower Dogs — Meet Mark and Faith


I’m Mark Delaney. I’m a special agent with the Tennessee Bureau
of Investigation, and I’m an accelerant-detecting canine handler. My canine partner’s name is Faith. She is a three-year-old yellow lab, and she
is one of approximately 60 dogs in the country that is trained and certified by the Bureau
of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms to detect ignitable liquids. She works fire scenes, typically looking for
ignitable liquids — anything that is petroleum-based product. Her super power is to find that, sit and alert
to tell me that she has found an ignitable liquid. It’s a huge benefit for all the residents
of the state of Tennessee because she can go into a burnt structure and, within seconds,
be sitting on an ignitable liquid where someone may have used it to start a fire, to commit
an arson or for the intentional burning of a structure. She can do, in seconds, what takes us physically
and manually to dig out takes us days. They do use all labrador retrievers for this
type of work, mainly for their stability. They’re great around the general public C, and you can
do PR work. People love to see the dogs, pet the dogs. She loves people. She gets offended if you don’t pet her. She’s reliable. She does her job every single day. She comes to work; she doesn’t complain. She makes me have a better demeanor towards
my job. I tell people all the time at headquarters
in Nashville, “Everybody can have whatever job they want. I’ve got the best job in the state of Tennessee.”
