I was born in December of 2002 and raised by CCI Puppy Raisers in Colorado. In 2004, I arrived at my permanent home in Northern California and, ever since, have been busy helping out in my 'mom's 3rd grade classroom and having puppies with great futures as Canine Companions. When I retire, I plan to devote myself to volunteer tutoring and therapy work and my hobbies of swimming, ball-chasing and bone-chewing.
