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.

Electra

$300

Electra

Silver Lab
San Diego Ranch

Kids? 11+

Dogs? No.

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!

Darla

Price: $6000

Darla

Yellow Lab

Located at our San Diego Ranch.

Kids? No.

Dogs? Yes.

Personality: Darla is shy and uncertain of people at first, but quickly warms up! She is a love bug and so so sweet once she gets to know you! She is slightly vocal, and loves to jump, but is willing to learn and train. She loves playing with all of her dog friends in the party bunk, and would do well in a home if you have another pet.

Wish

Golden Retriever
San Diego Ranch

Sex: Female

Dogs? Wish gets along with other dogs, but is shy when in large groups of dogs. Would be okay in a home with other pets.

Cats? She is shy around cats.

Kids? She has not been tested around kids. Due to her tendency to be timid, she would be best in a kid-free home or with older kids, 15+. 

Personality: She takes a long time to get acclimated to new people and environments. Once acclimated, she is very sweet and responds to her commands. She can be motivated by food, and loves to play with small groups of dogs. 

Training: She went through our prison program where she was trained extensively during the early years of her life. In prison, she was a star student. She knows all of her basic commands and lots of advanced tasks. Due to her timid nature, she only usually responds to sit, down, and stay. You’ll have to work her through anything else that she knows. She walks well on a leash without pulling. 

Side notes: She can be hard to catch, so she may have the potential to be a darter. A high fenced-in yard is recommended.
