The little puppy in this video is named Ricochet. This little dog was raised by her owner to be a service dog, but the path she actually ended up choosing was totally unexpected and a lot more inspiring. Her mom Judy was very disappointed when she couldn’t become a service dog, but wait till you see what she did for Ricochet instead. Maybe service wasn’t what she was cut out to be, but she is certainly a success.
Ricochet was one of the ten pooches that were born into the Puppy Prodigies Neo-natal and Early Learning Program. Unlike her fellow aspiring canines, she was adventurous, high-spirited, and riotous. Service dogs on the other hand are required to be disciplined and focused, which wasn’t really her thing. She was more like the class clown. Thankfully, Judy accepted her as she was and helped her in her journey to become a ‘surfice’ dog. You are going to be amazed when you see what Ricochet does now! She teaches children with disabilities to ride the waves and surf, and she loves every minute with these awesome kids. Now Ricochet can live out her dream of being a free spirit while helping these kids discover theirs. What an amazing career for this dog.
