Rupert Graduates!

For a number of years, NTC's Newton Community have raised money to support Guide Dogs.  Each year, they support the training and development of new assistance dogs by sponsoring a puppy.

Our students can follow the progress of their sponsored puppy online and with regular pupdates from Guide Dogs.  We were incredibly proud to find out that after successfully completing his training, Rupert has now been paired with his new owner, Jane.

Not all pup trainees make it.  One of the previous dogs we sponsored was doing a wonderful job, but couldn't resist the lure of the local bakery.  He had the unfortunate knack of always leading his partner to bread, whether they wanted it or not!  He went on to become a very successful therapy dog, so it's not all bad news.

We should receive one final update about Rupert and Jane, after that, he's a fully-fledged Guide Dog!
