Vesper 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 February 2019, she took the next step in her journey and entered Advanced Training in the Service stream.

 It truly takes a village to raise a puppy, and you can be part of Vesper’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 Vesper today.
