We are very exited to announce that TRUFFLE has passed her pre-placement testing and has been matched with a client! Way to go Truffle!  Truffle’s gentle, sweet demeanor and her ability to bond strongly with her primary handler make her a great PTSD service candidate. Truffle’s team training will be scheduled to start in the next month or two. Her trainers Lisa and Margaret and the PADS advanced training staff are very grateful to the amazing community of volunteers and the PADS puppy program staff whose love and hard work made Truffle’s success possible! Congratulations Team Truffle!
