Roma was being raised and trained to be an assistance dog for someone with a physical disability or who is deaf or hard-of-hearing. However in April, 2015, Roma was chosen for the PADS Breeding Program and had 5 litters contributing 25 puppies to the training program at PADS.

After her retirement from breeding, Roma took the next step in her journey and joined the Advanced Training program where she learned to be an Accredited Facility Dog.  We were very proud of Roma when she graduated on October 6, 2019.

It truly takes a village to raise a puppy, and you can be part of the PADS village — all donations raised through this page go directly towards our veterinary care fund to ensure that Roma’s puppies and all of our dogs-in-training are healthy and happy. Help support PADS today.
