Lady Liberty was adopted from the San Diego Department of Animal Services in Carlsbad. She was there for a little over a month and had already been adopted and returned because she was pestering livestock. This energetic pup was just in need of a job to keep her out of trouble! She loves people and the shelter staff was so pleased that she’d be entering our program and fulfilling a greater life purpose. Liberty has been generously sponsored by our Red Star Sponsor, Mission Beach Women’s Club.

Liberty has been matched with Aaron Neely, a Navy veteran. Aaron and Liberty have a very special bond, and they are both excelling in handler training. Recently, they passed Liberty’s Canine Good Citizen test and the pair will move on to take their Task Test and Assistance Dogs International Public Access Test prior to graduating together as a veteran/service dog pair. We are so proud of these two!
