Tuscan 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 September, 2018, Tuscan 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 Tuscan’s village and receive monthly updates on his training — all donations raised through this page go directly towards our veterinary care fund to ensure healthy, happy puppies. Help support Tuscan today.
