Balfour was being raised and trained to be an assistance dog for someone with a physical disability or who is deaf or hard-of-hearing but in January, 2018, he was chosen as a stud dog for the Assistance Dogs International Breeding Cooperative. Balfour remains as a member of the PADS community but his puppies will be shared with other assistance dog schools in North America..

It truly takes a village to raise a puppy, and you can be part of Balfour’s village and receive monthly updates on his training — all donations raised through this page go directly towards our veterinary care fund to ensure healthy, happy puppies. Help support Balfour today.
