Hey there!
Kipling is my guide dog that I obtained six months ago. He was raised in New York by an extremely generous retired couple, and received formal guide dog training in New York at Guiding Eyes for the Blind. He is 2-1/2 years old, and has changed my life completely. Kip is extremely intuitive and learns quickly. He guides me around my college campus and travels with me to and from my volunteer experiences.
