Meet Guide Dog Puppy Xander!
Xander is a beautiful big yellow Lab, born at SA Guide-Dogs on November 7th 2015.
His puppy raiser unexpectedly got the chance to work overseas for a few months, so when Xander was almost 39 weeks old, he came to stay with us to continue his puppy raising.
He’s an absolute sweetheart! He looks just like his mommy, Jelly, with the same droopy eyes and looong ears, and he’s actually half-brother to our Lennox, also a “Jelly baby”! He walks beautifully on-lead, and he’s very clever! He loves carrying things around, although he isn’t always keen to bring it back to you, so we’re working on that. 😛 And like our other puppies, he loves to be close.
He’s so chilled and relaxed compared to our other high-energy puppies, its quite strange for us. 😀 He LOVES his sleep! He puts himself to bed at about 9pm, and he sleeps right through to at least 6am, even of the other dogs wake up in the wee hours of the morning!
As with all our Guide Dog puppies, Xander goes everywhere with us. He even went with us to the SA Guide-Dogs Wine & Dine Dinner, as he was the official “Hot Dog” for the Hot 91.9fm sponsored event!
