Truffle was being raised and trained to be an assistance dog for someone with a physical disability or who is deaf or hard-of-hearing but in May, 2018, she was chosen for the PADS breeding program. It turned out that motherhood was not Truffle’s career path and in May, 2019, she entered Advanced Training in the Service stream. In March, 2020, we were very excited to match Truffle with her client and watch them take on Team Training together.  Watch for them at Grad 2020!

It truly takes a village to raise a puppy, and you can be part of Truffle’s village and receive monthly updates about her — all donations raised through this page go directly towards our veterinary care fund to ensure that Truffle and all our PADS dogs are healthy and happy. Help support Truffle today.
