Our Purpose

The Little Angels Breeding Program exists to produce puppies to be raised and trained as excellent Service Dogs to assist the disabled. At 4-months-of-age we can usually determine which dogs won’t make it all the way through training. Puppies that would be uncomfortable with the many varying settings in public are adopted into pet homes. We have a very high rate of success with the dogs in our breeding program making it as service dogs. This is due to our training practices and the excellent breeding behind our dogs – to produce dogs with calm and loving temperaments, intelligence and excellence of health.

We place new Service Dogs throughout the United States every month. 

Our breeding dogs are loved and cared for by dedicated Breeding Fosters so they can live at home in a family environment and take fun trips to beaches and parks.

Volunteer Puppy Raisers are trained to raise the puppies in their homes and take them to work, school and any other public areas so that the puppies are properly socialized and prepared for their future work as a Service Dog. Once the puppies are old enough they come back to Little Angels where they stay at our facility for their Specialized Assistance Training and Certification.

The dogs in our breeding program are the very best, and they are treated as such! They are not left in kennels. We have many different families and individuals throughout the United States who provide Foster Homes to each individual dog. While we oversee the health and training of our breeding dogs, they are loved and spoiled in Foster Homes throughout San Diego. This ensures that each dog gets the individual attention that they need and deserve.

In order to ensure the quality of our puppies, all of our breeding dogs are either OFA certified for hips and elbows or have had PennHIP certification, have a heart clearance and CERF for eyes. Some of our dogs are also shown in the ring to prove the quality of their confirmation and breeding.

Our Wonderful Breeding Dogs:

The dogs in our breeding program are very special. You can often see a glimmer in their eyes, as if they know how very important their job is. As very proud parents, their offspring will have the life-long duty of helping a person who is handicapped and needs the day-to-day assistance that a service dog can bring. A dog will never have a more important job than that!

We breed yellow and black Labradors of the English bloodline, as well as English Cream Golden Retrievers. Our dogs are AKC and/or UKC certified with a pedigree of old and solid working lines. Some of our dogs were even born in Europe and have since been imported to sunny San Diego!

Luna

Luna

English Cream Retriever


Luna is a gorgeous English Cream Retriever that recently had her second litter for Little Angels. She is a very sweet dog that craves love and attention. Away from her pups Luna will never leave your side and is happiest getting pet or scratched. With her pups, she’s an amazing and protective mom, always ensuring her babies are safe and okay. Luna enjoys life in New Hampshire, living with her adopted siblings and seeking all the attention from her Breeding Fosters.

Eve

Eve

English Cream Golden

Eve has passed health clearance for hips, elbows, eyes and heart, both OFA and PennHIP

Eve is an English Cream Golden Retriever with impeccable lines. She is both a breeding and demo dog for Little Angels. Her job entails being an amazing mother to her pups and once they are all grown up, showing off her skills and receiving cuddles and pets at our educational presentations. When she’s not receiving love from the masses she enjoys collecting stuffed animals, basking in the San Diego sunshine, and an occasional good, long roll in the mud. It’s a dog’s life! Eve recently had her second litter of pups with Gus, and they might just be the most adorable litter of dogs we have ever seen!

Birdy

Birdy

DOB:
English Cream Golden

Birdy is an English Cream Golden Retriever who we imported from the Ukraine. In her first and last litter she only had one little pup (seen above) named Dove. Birdy’s not complaining though – they had a lovely mother daughter relationship. Birdy lives in Colorado with her Breeding Foster and is holding out for the right man to come into her life so they can settle down and give Dove some siblings.

Hi Everyone! It’s Piper. I just wanted to update you on my future plans. I have very big news. As you know, I came all the way from the Ukraine. I spent some time at the Little Angels Ranch and NOW we have all decided I will not be a service dog- I will be a service dog momma! That means I get to live with a family and be a pet. And when my body tells me it is time, I will start growing itty bitty babies in my tummy. I will take such good care of them while they are in my tummy. I will eat LOTS of food (heehee) and get lots of rest and be spoiled by my family. That will let my babies grow until they have no more room in my tummy. When they are ready to come into this great big world, I will be the best mommy ever! I will help them walk and grow and eat, until finally they will be ready to start their very special training as service puppies! Next time I update you, it will be with good puppy news! Love, Piper(8/2/18)

Status: Hi All! It’s Bindi! I am one of the English Cream Goldens that came from the Ukraine! The Ukraine is very far away from San Diego! Do you know what that means? It means I have the fabulous potential to be the most amazing baby mama! My very important job for Little Angels is to create….Little Angels! I take my job very seriously! Right now, I get to relax and just be Bindi. Soon, it will be time for me to become a mommy! I love babies so I know I will be a great mommy! I cannot wait to share when I have little booboos in my tummy and then eventually share pictures of my cute little booboos with you. Lets start thinking about cute little names… (8/1/18)

DOB: 8/18/17
English Cream Golden
Status: Hello everyone. I’m Cora. I am the most gorgeous of the breeding dogs here at Little Angels.  I’ve come all the way from the Ukraine with the very special job of making future service dogs. They are so happy with my beautiful self-they will not be able to believe all of the gorgeous puppies I will have to help our recipients! I’ve yet to become a mother dog, but let me tell you I’m so excited for the day I have my first litter. In fact, I have thought up some names that I think I’d like for them. Would you like to hear them? I can’t resist so I’ll tell you anyways. Lets just keep this between you and me for now…you never know what these training people are thinking.  Ssshhhhhhhhh!  For my daughters’ names  I’ve chosen Reya, Reagan, and Ryleigh. For my baby boys I like Rocket, Ryder, and River.  Aren’t these the cutest names?  In the meantime, even though I will not be a service dog, I’m still working with my trainer, Heather. I am learning lots of commands and learning how to have good manners. That way I will be well-behaved and beautiful for my breeding foster when the time comes. Hopefully by the next time I check-in with you all, it will be to announce that I have puppies on the way.  Love, Cora  (6/20/18)
Collette

Collette

3/30/17
Red Poodle
Status: Collette is a very silly poodle with an abundance of energy. She gets very excited to see new people and is extremely friendly. While we love this outgoing personality we are working on helping her control it. She understands her basic commands but has trouble keeping a down-stay and heeling because of her energy. Collette is currently being fostered and we are excited with how she’s doing in a home atmosphere.

Goals: We are hoping that with Collette being in a home she will learn to curb her enthusiasm and be able to respond to commands more consistently in public. She is a very happy-go-lucky dog and we have high hopes for her! (10/22)
