Zegen was being raised and trained to be an assistance dog for someone with a physical disability or who is deaf or hard-of-hearing. However in July, 2018, he was selected as a breeding dog for the Assistance Dogs International Breeding Cooperative. Zegen remains in the PADS community but the puppies he sires enter the training program not only at PADS but also other ADI schools in North America..  It truly takes a village to raise a puppy, and you can be part of Zegen’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 Zegen today.
