Note: Give the video stream a moment to load.
We have posted several times about Canine Companions for Independence, and today a reader pointed us to their wonderful Puppycam. You can watch a live video feed of a litter of seven puppies born on March 18, known as the “Hero Litter,” who will grow up to be highly trained assistance dogs for disabled people. On one level, it’s wonderful to know that these delightful pups are destined for greatness. On another level, they’re just so darned cute and they make the sweetest noises. Watching this for five minutes can turn a bad day good.

Thank you for allowing us to watch these gorgeous puppies and their mommy. My coworkers and I watch this frequently throughout the day and it always puts a smile on our faces. We are in love!
Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful feed. I have had a tough week and all of the sudden I feel like all is good in the world. SO BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!
Canine Companions for Independence is the nation’s oldest & largest Service Dog organization, founded in 1975. Guide Dogs for the visually impaired have been around since the late 1920s, but CCI brought Assistance Dogs to the physically disabled. After 18 months of being with volunteer Puppy Raisers, these puppies will go into 6-9 months of intense full-time training with certified professional Service Dog Trainers at one of CCI’s five regional training centers. Each “Graduate Team” receives two-weeks of training together and CCI provides on-going support for the life of the Team. CCI has never charged a single penny for the dogs, the Team Training or the continuing support. Since 1975 CCI has graduated 4,500 Teams and provided $200,000,000 worth of dogs and support without charge. CCI has a continuing need for volunteers and donations, as it accepts NO GOVERNMENT FUNDS – all funding is through donations and endowments. If you’d like to get involved with this phenomenal organization and/or would like to donate, please visit http://www.cci.org for more information.

I am a mother of a disabled son & dogs in his life (Newfoundland s & G Shepard) have made a huge impact on his life. He doesn’t have a lot of human friends but his dogs don’t care he is disabled. I never knew there were people out there that cared this much to train these companions for people who don’t have it that easy. Thanks for what you all do & God bless these new babies………♥️
