OUR VERY IMPORTANT BREEDERS ARE THE BEST!
All our Very Important Breeders (VIB's) live in wonderful family homes so they too have quality of life even though they have the very important job of providing us with the puppies to be able to continue this important work. The dogs all have a beautiful life and enjoy every moment at home with their families. Meet the families.
Molly lives with Michelle and Casey Fowler. Michelle is the aunt of Jazmin Bromley one of our assistance dog recipients so when Michelle heard that by giving Molly a great family home she could be part of the process to help with the breeding program that allows us to supply more purposely bred puppies to then be raised and trained into assistance dogs, she jumped at the chance to be involved. Casey is an emergency nurse at the Children’s hospital so he also understands the role they are playing in being part of this program.
Louise and Michael Hughes and their family have previously had a breeding girl from Craig and Tracey Murray. Bella is a Golden Retriever that is now 11 years old so she was ready for a new addition to the family which is why they decided to take a breeding girl from the first Blitz / Basil litter. Louise and Michael own F45 Training Helensvale a gym with a difference! You’ll be able to see Bella and Brooklyn from time to time if you visit as there’s a family atmosphere and the dogs are definitely part of the family! Louise and Michael and family are very community minded and of course didn’t hesitate to be involved with the Empower Assistance Dog program.
