Hopkins was 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, 2017, Hopkins took the next step in his journey and entered Advanced Training where he is learning all the skills he needs to be a Service dog.  It truly takes a village to raise a puppy, and you can be part of Hopkins’ 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 Hopkins today.
