The Arizona Coyotes announced their biggest signing of the 2019-20 season on Monday afternoon: Luna, the puppy, who will bring the best intangibles the team has ever had.
A 14-week old black Labrador retriever, Luna came from the National Assistance Dogs Inc. and will be trained by the Coyotes for the next year. Afterwards, she will be given to a veteran in need.

What you already know: Luna is cute. What you didn’t know: We partnered with National Assistance Dogs Inc. (@NADIassist) to adopt Luna. Our team will be Luna’s Puppy Raiser(s) and will train her in housing, vetting, basic obedience, socialization to all environments and individuals as well as proper service dog etiquette and public access manners. Once Luna completes her training, she will be given to a veteran in need. 🖤

NADI trains service dogs to help veterans with mobility and post-traumatic challenges after their service.
“We’re very excited to partner with NADI to adopt Luna and have her as part of our Pack for the 2019-20 season,” Coyotes President & CEO Ahron Cohen said to NHL.com. “NADI is a tremendous organization that helps veterans in our community. We are all dog lovers at the Coyotes and we hope that Luna can help raise awareness about NADI and also bring us some luck this season.”
Luna will be trained for basic obedience, socialization, and etiquette in all situations and will spent most of her time at the Coyotes offices and home games. She will make appearances at practices and team events.
Luna’s adventures can be tracked on the Coyotes social media, including their Instagram.
