Champ with his puppy raiser, Kathy and some adorable photos of him with her grandkids.

These are the last few weeks that Kathy and Champ are together as he will head to HQ in Cork soon for formal training.

It must be very difficult to say goodbye to such a gorgeous dog. Well done on raising a fabulous puppy Kathy!

We're so proud of April - our gorgeous sponsored Irish Guide Dog for the blind. We received this lovely update on how she is progressing.

April is excelling in her training.
She loves going on her training walks to shops and cafes but especially loves going out with her room mate ambassador dog Yanson. He has been a great help in showing her the ropes. She has great recall so gets to enjoy some time off running around the Dublin mountains. We are hoping that April will be picked for breeding so that other puppies can take on her amazing personality! We will miss her dearly but know that she is destined for greater things.

We can't imagine having to say goodbye to her.

Guide Dogs Puppy - Izzy

Meet Izzy and his puppy raiser, Emma!

Izzy is now settling in well in Duleek, Meath with her puppy raiser Emma, but has already made a few trips to Dublin during her early solcialisation.

Emma refers to Izzy as her baby now! She is a great spirited young pup as Emma says and she is taking to her training really well.

Have a look as photos of Izzy, some of her when she first arrived with Emma, and some recent ones also.

Photos of Izzy - he's growing fast!

Hank - Guide Dog for the Blind - on the luas

Hank is a hard worker on the farm and likes to hang out with his farm friends!

A lovely shot of him at home having some fun! What a cheeky chap :)

Aska, one of our sponsored Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind is now in training on the Guide Dog programme with trainer, Allyce.

Here she is pictured (left) with the handsome golden retriever brothers Beckett & Bramble.

Guide Dogs Puppy - Hank

Meet Hank and his puppy raiser, Bernadette!

Hank is settling in to life in Sandyford with his puppy raiser, Bernadette.

Hank is Bernadette’s 7th puppy she has raised so he is in good hands! He is a bit of a cheeky chappy and a bit of a character, something that Izzy has shown also. Their raisers are finding it hard to be too hard on them. Training for Hank is also going very well at present and presenting to be a very quick learner.

Izzy - Guide Dog for the Blind - Kerry Mountain October 2019

Here's Izzy on a recent trip to Kerry!  She loves to travel and explore new places :)

Here are some gorgeous images of April who will become a brood, a mum, to many more superhero doggies. It will be some time yet before she has her first litter but we can't WAIT for that cuteness!

Here's Hank enjoying some Christmas shopping and looking forward to a visit from Santa!

Thanks to his raiser Bernadette for these lovely photos of Hank. He's a real beauty :)

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!
