Helping Paws is proud to debut our latest litter of future service dogs, the Joy, or “J,” puppies. Mama Elska timed the arrival to coincide with our annual Tail Waggin ‘ Dinner, where we celebrate our mission of furthering people’s independence and quality of life through the use of assistance dogs.
The Gangsta x Elska pups, four males and three females, are thriving @ four weeks of age.
They are weaning to puppy food, and wrestling.
Each puppy has a litter name related to the theme of joy:
Jolly: full of good humor; mirthful; cheerful
Sunny: bright; shiny; radiant
Harmony: when you feel happy; peace
Effervescent: enthusiastic; vivacious; fizzy
Happy: joyful; fortunate; marked with good luck
Joy: happy; glad; merry
Bliss: completely happy; full of joy; blessed
