Enjoy a tears-to-triumph story through the heart of a one-in-a-million pup

A dog unlike any other, Ricochet has surfed her way into countless hearts with her message of hope, healing, living your purpose and pawing it forward.

Ricochet herself is a shining example of the rewards that come with being true to yourself and making the most of your gifts.

From her birth, Ricochet seemed destined to be a very special service dog. With boundless energy she surpassed every other pooch in her Puppy Prodigy class.

Unfortunately, 15 months into Ricochet’s training her passion for chasing birds forced her to leave the program because her instinctive impulse to run after them could endanger those she was assisting.

However, Ricochet would not let this setback keep her from her mission in life!

Share a joyous journey with the world’s only SURFice dog™

When Ricochet had to leave her Puppy Prodigy class, Judy Fridono was frustrated and saddened. But then she felt a stirring within her that told her she needed to just let go and allow Ricochet to live her own purpose—which she did one day by unexpectedly jumping on a surfboard with 14-year-old, Patrick Ivison, who is quadriplegic.

With her usual abundance of energy, Ricochet swiftly became the world’s only SURFice dog™, participating in numerous charity events that changed the lives of a sea of very grateful people.

Through her extraordinary gift of being able to “hang 18” and ride the waves, Ricochet has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars and transformed lives by teaching people to stay positive and always believe in themselves.
