Allen's Statistics

DOB: Feb. 9, 2007
Southeastern Guide Dogs, Palmetto, FL
Origin of his name: named after sponsor's grandson, Allen, who has a congenital eye disease.

Since we had moved from Alaska to Virginia, we switched guide dog schools. Allen was our first guide puppy from Southeastern Guide Dogs.
Little Allen his first day - Lena took him to a school presentation, where he promptly fell asleep.

Allen attended classes with Lena at Danville Community College, VA. Since she had just moved from Alaska, having Allen made it easier for Lena to make friends.
