Burke 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 October, 2018, he took the next step in his journey and entered Advanced Training to become a Service Dog.  We’re very excited to announce that Burke has been matched with his client and they started Team Training in April, 2020.

It truly takes a village to raise a puppy, and you can be part of Burke’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 Burke today.
