Fox Creek Farm donated Richter to   Guide Dogs of America is dedicated to its mission to provide guide dogs and instruction in their use, free of charge, to blind and visually impaired men and women from the United States and Canada so that they may continue to pursue their goals with increased mobility and independence. In 2002-2003 Blue Sterling of Goldendoodles.com sent out letters to online working dog groups asking if they had ever used a Labradoodle or Goldendoodle.  Head trainer for Guide Dogs of America, Meri Forman, said that they had not, but expressed an interest in working with a Goldendoodle and asked if Blue could recommend a breeder willing to donate a pup.   Blue contacted Amy of Fox Creek Farm, and Richter made the grade and completed his training as a Guide Dog. Amy Lane of Fox Creek Farm selected a pup for Meri Forman, Breeding Manager of Guide Dogs of America.  Richter was born on 4/23/03 and donated at 8 weeks of age.  Richter, the world's first Goldendoodle seeing eye dog, graduated on May 1st, 2005. You can make a difference in the lives of blind men and women by supporting Guide Dogs of America. Your contribution of time and/or money helps G.D.A. provide guide dogs free of charge to blind individuals. With the gift of a guide dog, these men and women are better able to pursue their goals, fulfill their dreams, and participate in their communities. Guide dogs not only provide the gift of increased independence, confidence, and mobility, but they also act as a trusted companion providing new opportunities for social interaction. Help make a difference in the life of a blind individual in the form of a loving, four pawed partner today. For more information: http://www.guidedogsofamerica.org/difference.html
