GUIDE DOGS FOR THE BLIND NEEDS ASSITANCE IN FINDING LOST PUPPY LAST SEEN IN LOOMIS AREA
San Rafael, Calif. (FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE) - Guide Dogs for the Blind (GDB) is asking for your assistance in locating a lost puppy named Ingeborg. Ingeborg, a one-year-old yellow Labrador Retriever female, is a Guide Dog puppy-in-training for the GDB puppy raising program.
Although Ingeborg is still a puppy, she looks like an adult dog. Ingeborg was last seen near Rocklin Road / Barton Road.
Ingeborg is being raised by a volunteer puppy raising family in Loomis, Calif. The puppy raiser families teach puppies, like Ingeborg, to have excellent house manners and socialize them to the world by introducing them to new people, places and experiences.
Ingeborg, like other Guide Dog puppies-in-training, stays in their puppy raising homes until they are approximately 15 – 18 months old. At that time they begin their formal guide work training at GDB and are eventually matched with blind students enrolled at the school.
Ingeborg has tattoos in both ears with her ID number. She was wearing a black collar with ID plate and a long cord leash was attached to the collar.
If you have any information about this lost puppy, please contact Celeste Butrym at 916-992-3999 or Guide Dogs for the Blind at 800-295-4050.
