A called a breeder in Florida trying to explain your situation. (Foxhunt White Shepherds) She has service dogs, some of the dogs go to Freedom Guide Dogs, and I believe she said a few have gone to ARF (for children with Autism) although most of the ARF dogs are from the Rin Tin Tin lines. None have washed out so far.
She wanted to know if you're training the dog yourself and if you trained Nimrodel. She also asked what problems you were having with Pippin thinking that if he's still around 14-16 mths old he'd just be starting formal training if he was with an organization.
Anyway, if you'd like to send her an email and talk with her further let me know and I'll send you her email address via PM. Maybe she can offer advice or point you in the right direction.
