Sadie changed Ollie's life
Ollie was just 14 years old when he was matched with Seeing Eye Dog Sadie. His mother, Melissa, says the match changed his life forever.
"Everyday Sadie walks confidently along as if she is thinking this is what I have been trained for and I am going to do the best job I can do. They are a match made in heaven."
Melissa says Ollie's mobility and quality of life has improved massively since he started working with Sadie.
It's truly a life-changing difference that a Seeing Eye Dog can make for someone who is blind or has low vision. But there are more people waiting for the independence a Seeing Eye Dog can give. Please sponsor a puppy today and help us train more Seeing Eye Dogs to help people like Ollie.

Who are we?
At Seeing Eye Dogs, a part of Vision Australia, we have been breeding, training and supplying world-class dog guides for over 60 years to help Australians who are blind or have low vision.
Our Seeing Eye Dogs open up a world of independence, safety and freedom for clients to participate in all areas of life and live the life they choose.
It can take up to two years to train a puppy to become a Seeing Eye Dog. During that time we work hard to ensure the dogs build the confidence and skills needed to do this amazing job. Our training is entirely one-on-one — designed to put our clients and the dogs first.
