Service Dog thread: http://www.dogforums.com/general-dog-forum/119709-service-dog-thread.html

That thread will have lots of information from people who are very familiar with the ins and outs of services dogs, your legal rights, choosing a dog, etc.

Note that service dogs have a high wash out rate, even for dogs that were bred specifically to be service dogs. You may have trouble finding a puppy and then training it, depending on what you need it to do and be comfortable with. If its just gonna be a dog that works in your home with you, I imagine most stable dogs will probably work. But, if the dog is expected to be out in public with you and ignore multiple distractions like strangers and other dogs and weird floors and all sorts of other things, you will need to choose carefully, and if you get a puppy you don't know what their adult temperament will be like.

Good luck!
