Montville man raising puppy for Canine Companions for Independence

Canine Companions for Independence – a national non-profit organization providing highly trained assistance dogs for children and adults with disabilities, has announced that Montville resident Ron Angus recently began raising an assistance dog in-training for Canine Companions for Independence.

Puppy Henesee is a yellow Labrador retriever who will one-day know over 40 advanced commands, and be matched with a person with disabilities.

Volunteer puppy raisers are important to the work of Canine Companions for Independence. Puppy Raisers take the pups into their home at eight weeks of age, raising them, teaching them basic commands and socialization skills. 

For more information about becoming a Puppy Raiser, visit cci.org or call 1-800-572-BARK.

  1. This can sometimes lead people to take into their homes and families a type of dog that is not suitable for their purpose, which can bring unhappiness to themselves and the dog; as they are unable to give the dog the life it was bred for. Husky Shepherd
