The dogs on this page are all looking for their forever homes! It takes just the right dog to be a service dog, and most dogs don't have what it takes. This means that we often have a lot of service dog drop-outs that need homes and make wonderful pets! As much as we can, we try to get our training dogs from rescue situations. The dogs that enter our training program will never end up back in a shelter setting, even if they quickly drop out of service dog training. Below are all dogs that are looking for their forever homes.
If interested, please contact us. All rehoming fees go back toward rescuing and training other dogs. Rehoming fees vary based on the amount of training and expenses we have put into the dog up to this point. Applicants for our adoptable dogs are welcome to do a trial run for several days with a dog to make sure it is the right fit for everyone involved.
IF THERE ARE NO ADOPTABLE DOGS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE, OR NONE THAT FIT YOUR NEEDS, YOU MAY STILL FILL OUT OUR APPLICATION. THIS WILL PUT YOU AT THE TOP OF OUR CALL LIST IF WE GET A DOG THAT SEEMS TO BE A MATCH FOR YOU.
Nora is a 3.5yr old AKC registered Newfoundland and surprisingly even during exercise she DOES NOT DROOL! Originally we had gotten Nora with the hopes of using her in our breeding program, but when we had her health testing done we found out that her hips are not good enough for her to be used in breeding, or to be able to handle the stress of service dog life. She does not show lameness yet in her hips, but the veterinarian had us start her on joint supplements. We have been told that she should continue these supplements for the rest of her life and will eventually need to be on pain management as she ages.
Nora is an amazingly mellow and sweet girl that loves everyone and does well with kids, cats and other dogs. She is a gentle soul that just wants a family to love her and be the center of attention. Nora would make a great therapy dog for anyone that wants to use her as one!
She needs regular exercise to keep her muscle mass up and hips from stiffening, but should not do more intense forms of exercise like hiking. Nora is potty trained, crate trained, knows sit and down, and is currently working on leash manners.
Nora's adoption fee is $1,000. She weighs 107 lbs, is microchipped and will be updated on vaccines in the next couple of weeks. She will be adopted out on a spay contract.
Zoey is a courtesy listing for one of our clients that was trying to train their own service dog. She is a 2yr old Golden Retriever that spent several months in service dog training, but it has become very clear that Zoey does not have what it takes to be a service dog. She gets very overstimulated out in public and struggles to focus. She also gets very jealous of other dogs and too overstimulated with children to be trusted around them.
Zoey has amazing house manners, is potty trained, crate trained, and is great with sit, down, stay, place, and general house manners. Zoey's ideal home would be one without small children, cats or other dogs that has a large fenced backyard where she can play fetch. She will need regular exercise, but because she gets overstimulated out in public she is a struggle to walk on leash.
If interested in Zoey, please email us and we will give you her owner's contact information.
Gemma is a 10month old female Standard Poodle that has been in service dog training with us since she was 5months old. She is a very sweet, calm, snuggly girl that unfortunately has been diagnosed with severe hip dysplasia. We had a consultation with an orthopedic surgeon and he recommended that she get hip replacements done once she is over the age of 2yrs when her bone is more solidly formed. After she recovers from surgery she should be able to live out a fairly normal life free of pain. Until then, she needs moderate exercise to keep up her muscle mass and joint and pain supplements.
Gemma knows sit, down, stay, come, heel, and is potty trained and crate trained. She does well with other dogs and cats as well as children.
This adorable poodle is 40lbs, up to date on vaccines, microchipped and spayed. We are not asking an adoption fee for her since we know her eventual hip replacement surgery will be a significant financial burden on her adopter.
