Adorable pups have arrived in Dallas to begin their service dog training according to an NBC 5 DFW article published on January 20th. In it they say:
“Eight-week old yellow and black labs arrived to Dallas Love field by private jet Tuesday afternoon after a long journey from Santa Rosa, California. That’s where the national nonprofit Canine Companions for Independence is based. The organization has a local chapter located on the campus of Baylor Scott and White Health in Irving.”
This isn’t the first time the group has gone above and beyond, at the height of the pandemic last year, they managed to get hold of a private jet to transport some pup for their very important training according to another NBC 5 DFW article from May 26, 2020. In it they say:
“Despite the coronavirus pandemic, the group is keeping its mission going to train and provide service dogs for people with disabilities at no cost.
While the pandemic is limiting flights for many, it hasn’t stopped them from transporting these future assistance puppies. Canine Companions looked to private pilots for help, and they stepped up in a big way.
Private pilots Martyn Lewis and Josh Hochberg volunteer with a nonprofit organization that connects volunteer pilots and plane owners with animal groups that need animal transportation. Now, they’re offering Canine Companions their services in a time of need.”
Wishing those pups the best of luck in their very important training!
