Being a bomb-sniffing dog for the CIA is a big job, and Lulu just wasn't up for it.

The CIA announced in a series of tweets Wednesday that the 1-and-a-half-year-old black Lab trainee had to be let go from the program after she appeared markedly disinterested in learning her duties.

“Sometimes, even after testing, our pups make it clear being an explosive detection K9 isn’t for them,” the CIA tweeted.

CIA K-9 dogs have to learn to sniff out 19,000 different explosive scents in a 10-week time period and pass a test at the end. The dogs work about 60 hours a week and are on call even when off-duty.

Lulu made it clear she wasn’t into the job, however, and the CIA had to give her a pink slip.

Her handler adopted Lulu and she’s now a playmate for his kids rather than a working dog.

“We’ll miss Lulu, but it was right decision for her & we wish her all the best in her new life,” the CIA tweeted.

The CIA is sharing about it's new class of training pups in a series on its website.
