Hammond 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 July, 2019, Hammond took the next step in his journey and entered Advanced Training where he learned the skills he’ll need to help his new partner.  We’re very excited to report that, in April, 2020, Hammond found his match and they are now in Team Training. 

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