Service Dog Trainee Donated to HMCC Program by Alaska Breeder

Ten, who gets his name from his litter-birth-order, was donated to the Hiland Mountain service dog training program by a local breeder of Chesapeake Bay Retrievers. Ten has been with the program for six months; his prisoner trainer is Cassandra Russell. Russell said Ten is “hard-headed but very smart and very loving.” He’s mastered a number of the basic commands, but is still working on “stay.” Russell explained “he just likes to be with people.”
