Meet the international dogs!
In our article a couple of weeks ago we talked about international collaboration between guide dog organisations, and how genetic diversity is essential in maintaining a strong, healthy breeding programme. Meet some of the international dogs who help make this happen!
Former brood bitch Harriet (Golden Retriever) was donated to us by Irish Guide Dogs and produced 36 puppies for Guide Dogs for the Blind Association.
German Shepherd Daria was exported in 2015 as a puppy to Guiding Eyes for the Blind USA. She has qualified as a brood bitch for the organisation.
Stud dog Storm (Golden Retriever) was loaned to Guide Dogs for the Blind Association by KNGF Geleidehonden in the Netherlands, and was bred four times while on loan.
Stud dog Pringle (Poodle) was donated to Guide Dogs for the Blind Association by Lions Foundation Canada, and has sired 62 puppies to date.
