Nepal is a young female black Labrador puppy being raised by Gina Phillipsen from the El Dorado Second Sight–Paws for the Blind. You may have seen her around town in her green Guide Dog puppy coat.
In honor of International Guide Dog Day, Wednesday, April 30, and the 72 anniversary of Guide Dogs for the Blind (guidedogs.com), Nepal would like to thank all the local businesses that have opened their doors to her so that she can better prepare for her future career as a Guide Dog for the Blind.
Together, we are making life better for thousands of people who are blind or visually impaired throughout the United States and Canada.
Guide Dog puppy-raising is an incredibly rewarding experience and more raisers are needed. We welcome your interest and support.
THE PHILLIPSEN FAMILY WITH NEPAL
