Sponsor Announcement

I am honored to be sponsored by Disabled American Veterans Chapter 53. They graciously donated toward a sponsorship, which provided them the opportunity to give me my wonderful name! I want to thank them from the bottom of my heart for their generosity toward my training. I hope to make them proud!!

Rosie's Journey

Stage 1 Introduction

Hi! I'm Rosie. I am proud to have been selected to enter into the Retrieving Freedom training program. I am from Golden Dreams Kennel in Tennessee. During this stage of training I will be spending approximately 8 months with my new volunteer puppy raiser, Sabrina.

Throughout Stage 1, I will learn the basics obedience, public behavior, and a lot of socialization. I understand that it takes a very special dog to complete the program as there is a high standard to become a Service Dog. I am aware that I may be one of the dogs whose purpose is outside of service work so I will be updating my profile on a monthly basis for all that would like to follow my journey through the program. 



I am so excited to begin this journey! I transitioned from my wonderful breeding foster, Angie, this month to a temporary foster home. I'll first work on potty training, crate training, how to properly walk on a leash, and name recognition.
