Three litters of new puppies are making the Helping Paws scene! We know pictures speak louder than words, so here are the Loyal (Chester x Karma, born March 28), Music (Teller x Augustina, born April 7) and Nice (Briggs x Lanie, born April 16) Litters. Our thanks to Caretaker Homes Jill Rovner, Gloria and David Sather, and Susan and Mike Martiny Family and breeders donating the sires’ services, Captain’s Kennels, Judy Campbell/Elm Creek Golden Retrievers, and Jane Docter/Docmar.

Growing, playing, learning some social skills: The Kind Litter (Gangsta x Maple) is preparing for their planned future as Assistance Dogs. Born January 11, the puppies have more time yet in their Caretaker Home with Diane Crannell before they head to new homes and new adventures with their Foster Home Trainers. Four males, one female, and all puppy! Additional thanks to Jane Docter/Docmar for providing the sire services of Gangsta.
