"Career paths can take unplanned twists and turns…for canines too.
This was the case for three sisters – Duchess, Darby and Pearl. Paws With A Cause(PAWS) bred the sisters to be Assistance Dogs.
The road to careers for the adorable, feisty sisters began with separation at eight weeks and placement in loving foster homes for a year.
The pups were homeschooled to learn basic commands, tasks and obedience. They got to show off their skills to their friends in weekly classes at PAWS. But, it was not all work, there was plenty of time to play for the high energy siblings.
As they approached their second birthdays, the girls returned together at PAWS for more training. They worked hard, but had fun learning advanced tasks like retrieving, picking up objects and opening doors. Like all young adults, the sisters had to master their classes so they could one day become Assistance Dogs.
But, it turned out the three girls, with their rambunctious natures and joy for everything, just weren’t suited for this line of work. Fortunately, PAWS prepares for this with a Plan B."
