PARTNERTriton – German Shepherd

Uri was injured by an exploding shell in the first Lebanon War. He was a fighter then and is still today. Immediately after his release from hospital he requested a guide dog from the Centre and has been working with guide dogs ever since.

He also went onto complete a first degree in Clinical Social Work and a Masters degree in Addiction Management and worked for many years counseling patients with drug and psychiatric issues.

Today he lives, very happily, on a moshav with his wife and children where they breed chickens and goats. He also has learnt to ride a horse.

When we asked Uri what it was like to get a guide dog he says,“its like taking a prisoner and releasing him from his handcuffs.”

It’s like taking a prisoner and releasing him from his handcuffs.

A full guide dog partnership costs the Israel Guide Dog Centre £40,000 and our clients nothing, as we give them this service free of charge. To help us provide more trained guide dogs for people like Uri please donate today.
