Response to Cosmic Kitten (Reply #53)

61. It is actually almost certainly NOT a service dog.

That seems to be another of Palin's fabrications.

The dog is barely a year old (it was born in January 2014). That is about the age service dogs start training (which last a minimum of 6 months - and more often 18-24 months). This dog (if you believe Palin) completed its training by 8 months of age - which happens to be the youngest age I have been able to find to START training. One site I found listed a mandatory one year of age for all standardized temperament tests (a prerequisite to being certified as a service dog).

Puppy Jake (where she says she got the dog) has a single dog in service, and it is not with the Palin family. Their second dog will begin its placement in the next few weeks - again, NOT with the Palin family.

I've posted links to support this several times - don't have time now to go back and find them all, but you should be able to find them either by searching this site, or performing a broader google site. Look for an article about how a puppy from Delmar Iowa ended up with the Palin family. It has the most comprehensive, contemporaneous, statement of the Palin's purchase of a dog from Iron Hills Retrievers, and its anticipated training at Canine Craze.
