It was a wild and crazy time around here for the last few months! With Joy's litter of 10 and Raven's litter of 6, we had more puppies than ever!
All the pups have found forever homes (except one that we will advertise soon). This time around 7 puppies are in training as service dogs! It was a very strange time of the year as our service dog partners weren't accepting new puppies just now. But we managed to find new owners that want to have their puppies trained as a service dog partners. Now we have Owner Trained Service Dogs (OTSD). A very good (although long and focused period of commitment) way for our puppies to get into service. As Jeremy Ryder, National Program Coordinator at Paws for Purple Hearts said, ..."You are sending very special little fluffy beacons of light into the world!"
We donated two pups to Paws for Purple Hearts this time around and one is going to Detroit Michigan to start training and the other to Virginia! We also have a pup in Denver and another owner- trained service dog puppy in New York!
Stay tuned here and on Facebook for pupdates as they grow.
