A young, all black German shepherd puppy with ears that almost stand upright looks into the camera. He is sitting on a beige colored floor with toys in the background.

Future Leader Dog Sakari is one of the more than 400 puppies being raised right now across the U.S. to become the eyes and companion of someone who is blind. His puppy raisers will spend a year training Sakari to be the best puppy he can be, taking him to new places, introducing him to all kinds of people and animals, and helping him to be calm and well behaved. Once Sakari reaches adulthood, he will come back to Leader Dogs for the Blind for four months of formal training with a guide dog mobility instructor to become a highly skilled Leader Dog.

When you sponsor Sakari today, your generous action is what makes it possible to pair an incredible dog like him with a person who is blind at no cost to them.
