“R”, “S”, and “T” Litters Go Home

Guide Dogs of America’s volunteer puppy raiser families foster our puppies from the age of 8 weeks until the dogs enter formal guide dog training at around 18 months of age. Volunteer puppy raisers recently picked up GDA’s “R” and “T” litters.

Guide Dogs of America’s “R” litter of Golden Retrievers went home with their GDA volunteer puppy raisers on Dec. 2! They are pictured here as a group with their raisers on our campus.
