What is a Career Change Dog?
Our professional trainers carefully select our dogs by evaluating them for temperament, health and eagerness to please. They are rescued from shelters where they are at risk for euthanasia. They enter a rigorous training program to become Hearing Dogs for people who are deaf or hard of hearing.
Not all of our outstanding dogs can meet the demands of becoming a Certified Assistance Dog, thus the need for a "Career Change". They are, however, still winners, and make wonderful pets. Many are already housebroken and some know basic obedience commands. In short, these "near misses" make wonderful companions. We can help match you with a lifelong canine companion.

Cocolette is an 11 year old Toy Poodle. She is sweet and friendly with adults, but she does not like children. She has some allergies and a crooked hind leg. Her inability to get enough exercise has created a challenge of keeping her weight down. She will need a home with the finances necessary to deal with her physical issues and a home without children under the age of approximately 10.
