"Some say if a dog is bred to do something, you can't undo that," Garcia said. "But to me, that's like saying if everyone in your family has always fought in a war, you're a warrior and you're destined to do this. Not true. Everyone's an individual. You can choose your own path in life. Same with dogs. The only difference is, they can't choose it. We choose it for them."
"We feel like dogs going into these homes are being ambassadors" for the breed, Garcia said. "They're not just adopting a dog, but fighting the good fight."
