Puppy SpikeCanine Companions puppy Spike is exploring the world and on a journey to become an assistance dog.
We're excited to introduce Canine Companions puppy Spike, born January 29 along with five brothers and two sisters to mom Dory in Santa Rosa, CA. Spike's volunteer puppy raiser, Jennifer Williams, Executive Producer of "The Daily Briefing with Dana Perino," is raising him in honor of her brother.
Spike will spend the next year and a half learning basic commands, meeting new people, visiting different locations and working towards the goal of becoming an assistance dog to a person with a disability.
Canine Companions for Independence® is a non-profit organization that enhances the lives of people with disabilities by providing expertly-trained assistance dogs to children, adults and veterans at no charge to the recipient.
