With your help, a special international match has changed Andy’s life forever!

Andy lives in Blenheim, such a beautiful part of the world. A passionate nature lover, he is happiest in the great outdoors. Blenheim has been his home for many years, and he dearly loved tramping and exploring with all three of his previous guide dogs, enjoying his freedom and independence.

After a two year wait, Andy got the news that a guide dog match had been found for him in Australia. He couldn’t wait to get on the plane for the 3000km trip to meet Guide Dog Granger!

An intensive training program, that happened on both sides of the Tasman, was the next step for Andy and Granger. This talented team passed with flying colours, and can now take on life together with safety and a greater sense of independence that Andy loves.

What a wonderful outcome for Andy, and a bright future ahead exploring and tramping the beautiful regions around Blenheim. Andy is so grateful to you for making his dream come true.
