Fresh Ground is proud to sponsor a guide dog puppy. In recent years we have sponsored a number of gorgeous pups, not all of which have graduated successfully. We have photos at Fresh Ground and have shown a few below.
Dudley - our first puppy

Dudley's graduated! Now meet Katy
Dudley now has a new owner, but a new journey begins. Meet Katy, who is also adorable.
October 2014 February 2015
Sadly Katy has been withdrawn from the training programme, She has a minor skin condition which has caused her discomfort when wearing her harness, distracting her from her training. Katy has been rehomed and we hop that she is adored as a beautiful pet.
Katy's journey is at a premature end, but the training programme never ends. We have transferred our sponsorship to Rio:
Sadly, Rio was also withdrawn from the training programme. He was not proving to be suitable, but has found a loving home where he is adored by Rosie, a blind black Labrador.
Welcome to Freddie
Our sponsorship has transferred to Freddie - he is already nearing the end of his training programme and will soon be helping a new owner:
Gorgeous, isn't he!

Freddie has graduated successfully and has a new owner. Well done Freddie, and now we start a new journey with handsome Domino
