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