Future Leader Dog Topeka 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 or visually impaired. Her puppy raisers will spend 12 to 15 months training Topeka to be the best puppy she can be, taking her to new places, introducing her to all kinds of people and animals, and helping her to be calm and well behaved. When Topeka reaches adulthood, she will come back to Leader Dogs for the Blind for her formal training to become a guide dog.
Each year, we pair 200 highly trained Leader Dogs with people who are blind or visually impaired at no cost to them. With your help, we can raise and train many more amazing puppies like Topeka.
