One of their first projects was sponsoring a puppy through the charity’s Name a Puppy Campaign.
Ruby, a very bouncy black Labrador Retriever-cross soon arrived on the scene and Forthglade followed her progress with regular pupdates starting from when she was just seven weeks of age.
To mark National Guide Dog Week Forthglade commissioned a short video diary of Ruby, to share across social media, with the aim of highlighting guide dog puppy training, everything that it involves and how these incredible dogs transform the lives of a blind or partially sited person.
Ruby will go on to meet her actual owner next month and as she supports her new companion throughout their everyday life, Forthglade prepares to meet their second guide dog pup, a fluffy little chap called Ralph.
