TSA hopes adding more floppy-eared dogs to airports will put travelers at ease

SAN FRANCISCO, California -- The Transportation Security Administration says it's going to put more "floppy-eared" dogs in airports in 2019.

The agency says this is an effort to put passengers at ease.

Officials explained the decision, stating that passengers are more accepting of dogs with floppy ears, as opposed to pointy-eared dogs.

TSA also says kids are less scared of floppy-eared dogs as well.
