Guide Dogs: Goodbye Legend, Hello Goldie
Sadly, Legend did not make the grade as a guide dog. But he’s found a very good home.
We’ve been sponsoring trainee guide dogs through their training for a long time now, so we know the story does not always work out as planned. Back in 2013 Snowy reached final training, but then had to be withdrawn because she lacked concentration, and the same has happened to Legend. He’s simply too easily distracted.
He’s found a very good home. He’s back with Patrick and Ginny, who were his puppy walkers. Patrick is delighted to have him back, saying “We had such an incredible bond when I puppy walked him.”
Our sponsorship moves on to Goldie. Goldie is in advanced training, learning useful skills like finding the button at pedestrian crossings. Training is going well, so soon she will be placed with her future owner.
