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.

San Diego Ranch
Adoption Fee: $11,000.00
Lilo is a 1 year old female Labrador. She is incredibly loving, sweet, and smart! She was released from service dog training due to being unsure of strangers. She took incredibly well to training, and loves to continue learning. For this reason, she would make great help at home! Being a lab, she does have a lot of lab energy. It is important that her adopter has an efficient way of exercising her. Lilo plays great with other dogs but due to her high energy, should go to a home without children under 6 and cats. Lilo knows all basic obedience extremely well, and did an awesome job learning advanced tasks. She would be especially helpful assisting someone with a mobility disability. Lilo loves to open and close doors or cabinets, she retrieves anything and everything you may drop, she can alert to medical conditions, and also dials an emergency phone. If you are interested and think you are a good fit for Lilo, please fill out the In-Home Utility Application below.
