Guide Dog puppy Zaffino was welcomed recently to the Portland area by Oregon’s #1 Weatherman and KGW-TV/NBC’s Chief Meteorologist Matt Zaffino. This sweet yellow lab puppy was celebrated with a live telecast from KGW’s Studio on the Square along with other Guide Dog puppies-in-training, career change dogs, retired guides and Guides Dogs.
Little Zaffino is being raised by volunteer Puppy Raiser Nancy Prewitt. Nancy is the leader of Sightmasters, a Beaverton, Oreg. based puppy club. Zaffino is Nancy’s 21st puppy she will raise for GDB.
