PAD Creekside Kennel Irvine – Available For Adoption

IrvineAdoption
Irvine was donated to us at eight weeks of age by his breeder Creekside Kennel, with his littermate Gunner.  While Gunner is out going and enthusiastic, Irvine is reserved and timid.  He is being release from our assistance dog program due to this gentle cautious temperament.  Being in public worries him, as he never knows exactly what to expect.

Irvine will do best in a quiet home with adults only or kids over 13 years of age.  He makes great bonds with dogs but may take time learning to trust a new canine companion.  He is very laid back in his dog play and does wonderful with cats and other small animals.  Irvine loves to snuggle with his humans and would enjoy if his new family would be very affectionate with him.

Irvine has mild grain allergies and should be kept on a grain free diet.

He is quiet, house trained, crate trained, up to date on his vaccinations, microchipped and has a solid basic obedience foundation.   His adoption fee is $800, will come with his AKC documents and we will consider out of state adoptions.

To apply please email info@padcentral.org

Fundraising for PAD Gunner!

We are raising the funds to purchase one particular health guaranteed puppy to raise as our first potential stud dog, who will be the future of service dogs helping the disabled in our community. This 5 week old puppy, PAD Gunner, comes from generations of champion dogs ranging from obedience titles, show titles, and hunting titles.  Bred by Creekside Kennels in North Carolina.

Each of these areas are uniquely important for an assistance dog stud. Champion obedience titles show a desire to learn and obey commands, while champion hunting titles show natural desire to retrieve and have a gentle mouth. Equally importantly, the champion show titles show solid physical stature which is crucial for pulling a wheelchair and mobility work. In addition, this puppy has multiple generations of health tests dogs in his background and comes with a solid “hip contract” meaning they guarantee his hips to be free of Degenerative Joint Disease.
