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.

Scotty is a 10 lb mixed breed appoximately 1 year old. He appears to be a mix of Affenpinsher, poodle and/or possibly Scottish Terrier. He can be a smidge shy at first but then he is very friendly and affectionate. He still has a lot to learn. We don't think he was raised properly and will need supervision when it comes to his house manners. He's playful and sweet and is a very loving dog.
