The Following Dogs are Available for Placement in Approved Homes

Each of the following dogs have been through extensive training, but for one reason or another they are not suitable to go into public spaces as a service dog. This means 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 are responsive enough to training that they can be used as In-Home Utility Dogs. This is a dog whom is still trained to assist with a disability, but it does not have the temperament to go into public spaces.

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 a fully certified assistance dog. 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 $30,000.00 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 minimum of two private lessons with their dog before bringing it home so the family may utilize the training the dog has received. All dogs have a different degree of training which will be listed below. Handler training sessions and support are included for the adopter and family and will continue for the life of the dog at no charge.

Dogs Available for In-Home Utilization:

Leila

Leila

DOB: 5/4/18
Yellow Labrador Retriever
Leila is a one-year-old English Labrador Retriever with a $10,000 adoption fee. She was raised and trained by dedicated trainers and fosters in the Little Angels Service Dogs program. Leila loves engaging with adults, children, and other animals, but she can also bark when strangers approach. Because of her barking she isn’t suitable as an assistance dog that has public access, but will be a fabulous pet or in-home utility dog, where she can assist with a disability in the home. Leila is a spunky, active dog who always has a pep in her step. She would be best suited in a home with older children and an active family who will exercise her daily.  Leila has mastered, and comes with, the following: ♦ Obedience Training on leash and understands sit, down, come, stay for at least ten minutes when the handler is out of sight, and will walk nicely on a leash with the use of a head-halter, or a chain collar, and should also perform a brief off-leash heel. ♦ Assistance Training Started and understands the use of a clicker to teach more complicated commands, and has been fully trained in alert, touch, watch me, retrieval of items, and Deep Pressure Therapy for at least 45 seconds. ♦ Field Trip Socialization has been extensive for Leila and she has been in a wide variety of locations, however, she should only go where pets go as she will not receive public access as a service dog. ♦ 3-Year Health Guarantee which covers ANY medical condition your dog is born with, which includes, but is not limited to, hip dysplasia, elbow, heart, or eye conditions. This is 2-years longer than other reputable breeders and does not include any ‘fine print’. ♦ Includes an Introductory 8-hour Instructional Class, AND 4-hours of Private Lessons in how to reinforce and manage day-to-day life with your new pup, as well as … ♦ Lifetime Lessons which are available at least once a month, free of charge, to work on behavioral issues, work on reinforcing the training your dog already knows, or to grow in that training whether you hope to pursue a higher level of obedience, competition, therapy dog work, or assistance dog training. ♦ Your puppy also comes with a FREE CRATE, COLLAR, HEAD HALTER, LEASH, and COMFORT TOY which they are familiar with to encourage ease of stress in their new home.
