You may be aware that Ocean Telecom are currently sponsoring a guide dog for the blind through his training and development, in the hope that he’ll help change the life of a visually impaired person.
Well, Rufus is getting bigger and has moved in with his puppy walker Heather and her family for the next phase of his training.
Heather describes him as “bomb proof” after taking him to many varied places and environments, including schools, train stations, supermarkets and an airport. Heather says “He just sits at my feet and isn’t bothered at all. He’s a playful chap at home and really listens when you’re out and about doing obedience work”.
It’s not all work for Rufus though, he’s got a number of friends including India, another future guide dog and enjoys playing “find the teddy” with Heather’s children.
Rufus is making excellent progress and as well as displaying all the character of a future guide dog, he’s a loving and cuddly family member as well. Keep up the good work everyone, he’s coming along brilliantly.
