WEBBER continues to have adventures on his journey towards becoming an assistance dog, meeting lots of new people and visiting tons of new places. He especially liked the bakery air at the local grocery store! The big news this month is that Webber successfully completed his pre-placement test and is now one step closer to being matched with a client as an accredited facility dog. Our focus going forward will be to find the exact right place for this special guy to share his gift of impressive wiggles and deep caring for the people that he meets. His trainer Miranda is very grateful to the amazing community of volunteers, and our puppy program staff who have made Webber’s success in passing his pre-placement test possible. We are looking forward to announcing his future match soon!
