Kathy Leddy and her daughter Mackenzie of Sayville are currently raising their 9th puppy for Canine Companions for Independence.
Puppy Mater is a 1.5 year old lab/golden retriever cross who will soon enter advanced training, and will learn over 40 commands that are useful to a person with disabilities.
The Leddy’s brought Mater into their home at 8 weeks of age, teaching him basic commands and the all-important socialization skills. Volunteer puppy raisers like the Leddy family are vital to the work of Canine Companions for Independence, who have placed over five-thousand assistance dogs free of charge to people with disabilities.
