"A few weeks into training, Lulu began to show signs that she wasn't interested in detecting explosive odors," the CIA said in a statement.
In CIA photos, Lulu appears to be a black Labrador retriever.
Just like people trying to learn something new, dogs have good days and bad days. But Lulu never got into bomb-sniffing, even when motivated with food or play, it added.
"She was clearly not enjoying herself any longer," the CIA said.
