Hello. We are the LaBonte family. My name is Rebecca, and my husband is Chris. We Have been married for 13 years and have been on many adventures together and are excited to start this new one. We are also blessed to have Rebeccas mom Sybyl here with us on this new adventure.
We have been blessed to be here on the Space Coast of Florida in Brevard County where we have some of the most beautiful beaches and wonderful people that we call neighbors.
Our home since we got together has never been without a pooch in it, in fact multiple. We have had up to 4 at one point. Being that we cannot have children of our own, our dogs are very much our children, and they get treated and spoiled as such.
We started this for two reasons, to share our love of animals with many others, and to help those that are in need of service animals in their lives. This is an issue near and dear to our heart as we were involved in a car accident 10+ years ago where Rebecca was hurt to the point that she is now greatly disabled. She has had a service dog for many years that helps with her seizures and also to keep her anxiety levels down when she is out in public.
Our goal is to have our puppies placed with very good homes and to help those in need whenever it is possible so that others can get the feeling of security and safety that service dogs provide on a daily basis for individuals around this country and the world. Our puppies will go to their forever homes knowing what it is like to be loved, be around children and adults alike, and also what it is like to be around individuals that use assistive devices such as wheelchairs and walkers on a daily basis.
Again, we are very excited about this new adventure we are on and look forward to working with many families through the Queen Elizabeth Pocket Beagle Foundation into the future. Hope everyone reading this is doing well and we send prayers to all those in need throughout the world.
