Lucy II 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 June, 2022, Lucy II was chosen for her extraordinary health and temperament to join the PADS Breeding Program.  She will remain here in the PADS community to have her puppies, some of which 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 Lucy II’s village and receive monthly updates about her — donations raised through this page support the care and training of healthy, happy puppies. Help support Lucy II today.
