Hank, Izzy and Champ - look at them now!
The Irish Guide Dogs we have sponsored have returned to Cork for further assessment and training and they are after getting so big while they have been away! Aside from being adorable these doggies are on a mission to train hard and work to help empower people to move safely and confidently around their communities.
Hank has been selected for the Guide Dog programme and has begun very well.
Izzy is settling in well after an initial stressful period for her after leaving her home but staff at HQ are looking after her well. She is still been evaluated for her suitability for either the Guide or Assistance dog programme.
And Champ has been selected for the Assistance Dog programme and has displayed an excellent temperament for this. He will hopefully come through to work with a family of a child with autism.
The Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind is an amazing charity - please donate if you can!

We support people who are vision impaired and families of children with autism by providing life-changing services.
