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.

San Diego Ranch
Personality: Electra is such a sweet dog! She is very shy, and very skeptical of new people. She would do best in a quiet home with no kids or other dogs. She loves treats, and once she trusts you, she loves to be pet.
Training: She knows her basic commands, and is still young, so she is ready for more training!
New Hampshire Ranch
Personality? Charmin is the man! The staff at the New Hampshire Ranch have fallen in love with this spunky boy. He is high energy, but at the end of the day just wants to be loved on. He would make an amazing pet for anyone.
Training? Charmin did not go through our program so he has no training. He knows some basic commands and is working on others, but would need a family willing to work with him. He is still a puppy (under a year old), so he should catch on quickly!
