Shale 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 January, 2021, Shale took the next step in her journey and entered Advanced Training where she’ll learn the skills needed to support her future partner. It truly takes a village to raise a puppy, and you can be part of Shale’s village and receive monthly updates about her — all donations raised through this page go directly towards our veterinary care fund to ensure healthy, happy puppies. Help support Shale today.
