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

Theo is a 6 month old Labradoodle/Schnauzer mix. "Labra-Schnoodle". He currently weighs approximately 33 pounds, but will be gaining more. He did not receive proper socialization in his puppy-hood, so he'll need careful guidance to bring out his full potential. He is a very sweet, playful boy who is affectionate with people he knows, but is shy with strangers. He gains much of his confidence from other dogs, so we are looking for a home with another dog that is confident, friendly and playful. Since he is still a puppy, he'll need a home where his humans are home most of the time. He hasn't had any potty accidents here with us, but we make sure he gets outside regularly. He is not a marker, nor a destructive chewer, but he is a normal, curious puppy. Please fill out our online application and we will contact anyone we feel is an appropriate match.
We are a 501 C3 non-profit organization privately funded
through the generosity of Mr. Sam Simon so we do not accept
any public donations.
