Hello from Don, guide-puppy-in-training!
Hi! My name is Don and I'm a smart young Labrador retriever puppy who will be someone's Superhero someday!
I was born on Southeastern Guide Dogs' campus in Florida on June 4, 2019 but came to live with my Puppy Raisers, Sue Norwood and Jim O'Neil, in Georgia when I was three months old. They are providing me with a loving home, basic training, and lots of new experiences for about a year, until I return to campus for my advanced training.
I have lots of important jobs to choose from where I can offer independence and comfort to transform someone's life. I might become a guide dog for a person with serious vision loss, a service dog for a military veteran with PTSD or other disability, a military medical facility therapy dog, or a companion to a military family that has a lost a loved one in service to our country.
There are other important careers, too, where I can make a difference. Southeastern's mission is especially important to my Puppy Raisers because they are a military family.
To carry on its important work of raising highly-trained, purpose-bred dogs and partnering them -- at no cost -- with eligible people and lifetime services, Southeastern Guide Dogs needs your help. It is a non-profit 501(C)3 organization that does not receive any government funding, instead relying on donations to accomplish its mission. You can learn more about the great work that Southeastern Guide Dogs does at https://GuideDogs.org.
When you donate, you give the gift of hope. You can help us change the world -- one dog like me at a time!
