Gatsby 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 September, 2019, Gatsby took the next step on his journey and entered Advanced Training where he’ll learn the new skills he’ll need to help his future partner.

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