SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A Talmadge couple has spent the last 16-years raising puppies, only to give them away. 

The dogs are part of a program called "Canine Companions for Independence." Once passed the puppy phase, the dogs move on to help people with physical and developmental disabilities. 

CBS News 8's Jeff Zevely has the details in the video report above from Talmadge.
