Career Change Dogs


At Paragon, our dogs are the core of our program, and we recognize that working as a service or facility dog is not for every dog. So, we listen when a dog signals that they'd prefer a "career change" to that of a best friend or family pet, which are also incredibly important jobs. On rare occasions, Paragon will have a career change dog, a returned service dog due to the passing of a human partner or other life circumstances, or a retired service dog needing a forever home. 

When a dog is available for adoption, Paragon will post the dog on this page along with photos, their story, and instructions on how to apply.

There are no dogs available for adoption at this time.

Thanks for checking! If you didn't find the best friend you were looking for with us, your local shelter or rescue groups are great places to look for a new companion animal to welcome home.
