The Following Dogs are Available for Placement in Approved Homes as a Pet
Each of the following dogs have had some training, but for one reason or another they are not suitable as service dogs. This means they can still go on walks with you through neighborhoods and parks, but they cannot go to public areas where pet dogs are not allowed, such as restaurants, theaters, shopping malls, amusement parks, etc.
The dogs on this page will be best suited as house pets. More often than not, the reason a dog does not pass is because it is displaying behaviors that any normal pet displays. These behaviors just aren’t acceptable for a service dog but are completely normal for a house pet. All of them are still extremely lovable and thrive on human affection! Take a look at these happy dogs, this could be you and your new furry friend!
Please Note: These dogs are not a good choice for those who wish to further the dog’s training and then take them into public as fully certified assistance dogs. If we believed there was any chance they could comfortably go into public with further socialization and training, we would continue working with them and would not release them from our traditional program. Dogs are all individuals and the dogs on this page have their own special talents and abilities, but comfortably navigating the public scene isn’t one of them.
Some of these dogs have had more than $20,000.00 invested in their training. To help recover a portion of these costs each dog has an adoption fee. Not only does this assist us in recovering our costs to continue the program, but it also shows the commitment and responsibility of interested adopters. Each of these dogs are very special and we need to ensure their positive futures.
Each adopter will receive a required private lesson with their dog before bringing it home so the family may utilize the training the dog has received.

About Georgia: Georgia, also known as Georgi, is a free thinking, confident, spirited and independent dog. What Georgi lacks in size she more than makes up for with her larger than life personality. It is difficult to spend time around her without a smile on your face because she is just so goofy. Sometimes she can be a bit full of herself. Georgi is a master of making different sounds. Snorts, grumbles, and barks. Like most labs, she is very food motivated. Georgi has passed basic obedience and some advanced training. An adopter will need to provide consistent and confident communication to keep Georgi at the top of her game.. She is VERY smart and will often try to see what she can get away with. Georgi loves other dogs, people, kids and cats! There are times she might even love cats too much. Georgi’s favorite thing to do is play with other dogs. Of course she will never pass up getting love and attention from people too. Belly rubs are her favorite!

Bess has passed her basic obedience training and some advanced training. Bess will need to be the only fur child in the house. She doesn't like her muzzle held, hence, she will not be placed in a home with children or a home where small children frequently visit.
