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. Some are rescued from shelters where 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.

Grampa Bluey

Posted on 6/2/2023

Meet Grampa Bluey, a 10-year-old Australian cattle dog who is looking for a loving home. Grampa is a sweet and loyal companion who loves to be around his person.  He is good with gentle kids and older dogs, but he does not like to be alone. He enjoys cuddling and chewing on Benebones. Grampa is neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. He is healthy and energetic for his age. He would do best in a home with a fenced yard and someone who can spend a lot of time with him.
