BRITE continues to have adventures on her journey towards becoming a service dog, meeting lots of new people and visiting tons of new places. The big news this month is that Brite has successfully completed her pre-placement test and is now one step closer to being matched with a client! Our focus going forward will be to find the exact right place for this special lady to share her gift of fabulous fetching and big joyful smiles. Her trainer Miranda is very grateful to the amazing community of volunteers, and our puppy program staff that have made Brite’s success in passing her pre-placement test possible. We are looking forward to announcing her future match very soon!
