Can Do Canines

Dozens of Twin Cities families picked up their new puppies Friday from Can Do Canines, but they won’t be keeping them. Last month, Can Do Canines had a puppy problem, too many dogs and not enough people to raise them. Hundreds of people answered their call for help.
Talk about an adorable problem! “Can Do Canines” has too many puppies and not enough foster homes. The Twin Cities organization is looking for people to care for and temporarily foster as many as 28 new puppies while they train to assist people with disabilities. Some of the service dogs help people with autism, while others provide seizure response and mobility assistance.
Service dogs can do a lot of things — including alerting diabetics when their blood sugar is low. Dog trainers from North America and Europe are in the Twin Cities to learn about dogs like Grace.
