A dobe guide dog. You might remember her, Jade, the girl of Elvis family, our friend on the web.
Many of Japanese were surprised to see a doberman woeking as a guide dog,for Jade is probably the only dobe guide dog in Japan.
(She was raised and trained by Pilot Dogs, in Ohio, US)

She had been raised and trained to be a guide dog, but carrier-changed and became a service dog trainee.
She moved from a guide dog program to AWDSA, our service dog program.
