Dervish 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 May, 2021, Dervish took the next step in his journey and entered Advanced Training where he’ll learn the skills needed to support his future partner.  It truly takes a village to raise a puppy, and you can be part of Dervish’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 Dervish today.
