Chess was being raised and trained to be an assistance dog for someone with a physical disability or who is deaf or hard-of-hearing.  In September 2019, Chess moved up to Advanced Training where she’ll learn the skills she’ll need to support her future partner.   It truly takes a village to raise a puppy, and you can be part of Chess’ village and receive monthly updates about her — all donations raised through this page go directly towards our veterinary care fund to ensure healthy, happy puppies. Help support Chess today.
