​On Oct. 18, SCI Houtzdale’s RUFF dog training program welcomed two new puppies from United Disabilities Services (UDS). The RUFF handlers are now in the process of training 10 dogs for UDS, the most Houtzdale has had inside the institution at one time.

Apollo and Jupiter are each 2 1/2 months old, which is younger than most of the pups the program receives. They are full of energy, eager to learn and fitting in perfectly with all the other service dogs in training.
