Petting Zoo: Blind Boy Gets a New Companion

Petting Zoo: Blind Boy Gets a New Companion

Wyatt Wittry, a nine year old boy, born without vison, has been paired with a new best friend from Guide Dogs for the Blind.

Wyatt's mom did some research about Guide Dogs for the Blind's K-9 buddy program. The goal of the program is to pair dogs who were previously in service dog training but failed, giving them a new opportunity to be a companion to those who are visually impaired.
