Tako 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 November, 2018, Tako took the next step in his journey and entered Advanced Training.  It truly takes a village to raise a puppy, and you can be part of Tako’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 Tako today.
