MEDFORD, Ore. — Max Angel has spent all of 8th grade with a lab puppy. He took her everywhere. He trained Tiki to socialize and have good house manners. It was part of his work for the Guide Dogs for the Blind. Friday was his last day with the dog, because she will move on to advanced training for the blind in Boring, Ore. on Saturday.
Angel says he’s nervous about giving her up, but understands it was her purpose all along. He plans to be paired and train another animal in the future.
