What a special set of new arrivals for us to feature for you this month!
The ‘L’ Litter is a purebred Golden Retriever litter of four – 2 males and 2 females – born in mid-January, and have become chubby bundles of fur with an adventurous spirit. And they’re just gorgeous!
Mum ‘Dotti’ is a wonderful mother and after delivering them effortlessly, has been diligently caring for them since and making sure they have plenty of food to grow up healthy and strong. ‘Dotti’ is very special to us of course, but even more exciting is that her puppies are sired by a very well known British Stud Dog named ‘Gunner’.
In fact, this litter was possible due to artificial insemination, as ‘Gunner’ was born in 1989 and would be 25 years old if still alive today. Such is the miracle of freezing good quality genes!
‘Gunner’ acquired an 84% success rate during his breeding career in the UK and also sired many Guide Dog puppies around the world over the last few decades.
We hope his good genes and ‘Dotti’s’ love and affection, help make these pups perfect candidates for Guide Dog training.
Guide Dogs Queensland really needs your help to see these puppies grow into life-changing Guide Dogs. We are in search of new Puppy Raisers in South East Queensland who have the time and love to care for one of our puppies as they develop through the first 12 months of their lives.
All we need is your time, as we provide everything else from food to veterinary care. You can find out more about raising a puppy here.
With your help, we know we can continue to make a difference to the lives of blind or vision impaired Queenslanders.
