A trio of lab puppies that were abandoned at an animal shelter at just a few weeks old are getting a second chance and will be training to become assistance dogs for the disabled.

Rolo, Rex and Rizzo have all found new homes with the help of Britain’s Jerry Green Dog Rescue Centre. All three have been placed with families that will help raise the 15-week-old puppies to become assistance dogs for the disabled. The rescue center chose the three lab puppies to become assistance dogs because they displayed “obvious intelligence” and have “inquisitive natures.”

The puppies will remain with their new families until they reach their first birthday. Then they will begin training to work with the disabled.
