Goji was being raised and trained to provide life-changing independence to someone with a physical disability other than visual impairment or to work with a professional such as a teacher, psychologist or victim services worker to help support a healthy community.  

In November, 2023, Goji was chosen for his extraordinary health and temperament to join the PADS Breeding Program.  He will remain here in the PADS community but some of his puppies may be shared with other assistance dog schools around the world.

It truly takes a village to raise a puppy, and you can be part of Goji’s village and receive monthly updates about him — donations raised through this page support the care and training of healthy, happy puppies. Help support Goji today.
