Get to know this cutie and his trainer, Camden:
This handsome boy is a 9wk Vizsla. Vizslas are a hunting breed from Hungary. He has been generously donated to NICST/D4D by Olympic Vizslas. He will be trained by our wonderful volunteer trainer, Camden. With a background in service dog training, Camden spent the last year at NICST/D4D helping to write standards for Medical-Alert Service Dogs and trained Ranger before he was released from our program.
While Camden's fellowship has ended with us, she continues to stay involved with our organization by training this puppy to be a NICST service dog while residing on the East Coast. Camden has spent the last month spending time with the whole litter and has carefully selected this puppy for his confidence, contemplativeness, and attentiveness to people. You can follow his training journey for daily updates and training tips at @camdens_servicepups on Instagram!
Some fun facts about our puppy:
He's quick to notice when you walk into a room, and he sits quietly as he carefully studies you. He loves to hold things in his mouth, is very bold, and will run right up to novel objects. He is already good at trying to tell you when he needs to go outside. He also has the biggest ears!
We are thrilled to have this adorable new puppy a part of our family, and even more excited to have you, our wonderful community, help name our newest addition. Cast your vote today!
All proceeds raised from this effort support our life-saving mission to create powerful partnerships that empower all those that turn to our organization for support.
Voting will remain open until Sunday, October 11th at 5pm (PDT).
