Guide dogs are more than just man's best friend, they can also be the eyes some people need in order to do things the rest of us take for granted. This was Joy Ross's first successful unassisted trip to the coffee shop with Arabella the dog. It takes a lot of care and training for guide dogs to assist people, but it is an absolute necessity. 

We still had some more questions about guide dogs and we were lucky enough to have Joy Ross speak to our RTM hosts via Skype for the answers. You can check out more of Joy's videos on her YouTube Channel, Twitter, or Facebook.

We expect the folks at Animal Aid Unlimited, India have countless doggy friends because of their life-saving street rescues! Just a month after volunteers treat a stray nearly eaten alive with mange, we meet the same pooch... but this time, he's so delighted and healthy we almost don't recognize him! View Now
