Riddler is a 5 year old yellow labrador retriever we adopted from Labs & More Animal Rescue in San Diego, CA. He is a huge cuddler and loves to train, which translated beautifully into his work as a psychiatric service dog. Riddler recently graduated with his US Navy veteran handler, Teri McConnell in January 2020. We are so proud of this team!

Thank you to North County Supports Shelter to Soldier (NCSSTS) for generously sponsoring Riddler’s journey through our program from adoption to graduation!
