The oldest school in the world that breeds, raises and trains dogs to guide people who are blind, greatly enhancing their mobility.

It had been seven years since Terri had picked up a paintbrush, when she first stepped foot in the lobby of The Seeing Eye. It was just this past January and after nearly four weeks of intensive training with a female German shepherd, that Terri returned home with a new outlook on life.

Terri is an artist by trade but due to the sudden onset of a life threatening illness and progressive vision loss due to a genetic disease, she was forced to take a break from her passion and devote herself to recovery and rehabilitation.

She says, “Getting a Seeing Eye dog was the final step to entering back into my world of art. I have never walked nor thought I could walk as strongly or confidently as I do with my dog. Every step I take is a blessing. She has brought me beyond challenged, beyond fear, beyond exhaustion, to a place that is exhilarating. I feel such a sense of freedom as we walk to work, to visit, and for continued orientation and mobility training. My step is higher and I am traveling at a speed I never realized I could reach again independently.”
