We are very exited to announce that ZEN has passed his pre-placement testing and has been matched with a client! Way to go Zen!  Zen and his client will start team training in July. Zen really lives up to his name; he is a steady calming presence wherever he goes, which will make him an amazing Accredited Facility Dog. His trainer 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 Zen’s success possible! Thank you and congratulations, Team Zen!
