Desi 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, Desi took the next step on her journey and entered Advanced Training where she’ll learn the skills she’ll need to support her future client.  It truly takes a village to raise a puppy, and you can be part of Desi’s 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 Desi today.
