From the Puppy Raiser…

Congratulations Admiral we’re so proud to have been your first family to take this profound journey with, we have impacted each other’s lives forever. We brought Admiral into our home on February 4th, 2021, and said goodbye February of 2022 with tears of departure but today happy tears of joy on the guide dog he has become. Admiral is a devoted dog and very attentive to his person with devotion and love. Admiral attended work with me weekly which exposed him to many settings, people and loud street walks daily. Admiral and I worked as a team majority of the time, as training sections can be a little excitable for the dogs. The support from managers and co-raisers helped us to develop the skillset for his future as we celebrate today. Admiral loves the outdoors, plays well and quite cuddles. Our family has had a wonderful experience with GEB and the importance of giving back to others. I hope others embark in this journey of love as it is very rewarding. ~Laura Merone-Walsh & Family, Puppy Raisers
