Acorn is being raised and trained to be an assistance dog for someone with a physical disability or who is deaf or hard-of-hearing. In March, 2021, Acorn took the next step on his journey and entered Advanced Training where he’ll learn the skills he’ll need to support his future client.  It truly takes a village to raise a puppy, and you can be part of Acorn’s village and receive monthly updates about him — all donations raised through this page go directly towards our veterinary care fund to ensure healthy, happy puppies. Help support Acorn today.
