Denim 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 December, 2019, he was also chosen for the Assistance Dogs International Breeding Cooperative as a temporary stud dog. Denim remains in training in the PADS community and 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 Denim’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 Denim today.
