Sienna's litter Introducing Momma Siena

As part of the Assistance Dogs International North America Breeding Cooperative (ABC), a KSDS staff member, flew to New York to get Siena, a beautiful black Labrador retriever and breeder from the Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind in Smithtown, New York.

As part of the ABC partnership, KSDS will whelp Siena’s puppies and raise them until they are 8 weeks old. At that point KSDS will acquire half the litter to place with puppy raisers and train for their guide, service and social programs. The remaining puppies will be allocated to other schools within the ABC cooperative. Early Saturday morning, July 27, Siena had a beautiful litter of eight black Labs. Check out our Facebook page for frequent updates on her puppies.

Jean and Brinks were donated by Ed and Nancy Maynard. Jean’s puppy raiser is Madison Johnson and Brinks is being raised by the Maynards.
