Patriot 1Z10 returned "RFF" Returned From Field to Southeastern Guide Dogs due to a medical issue. After treatment, Patriot being the smart dog that he is, decided he was ready for retirement from guide dog work.
Where you ask would a guide dog retire to? A retirement community of course! What better one than "The Villages" Florida....well known for its retirees and their love of dogs.
Patriot has been welcomed with open arms, especially by his family, also now known as his "Forever Home." After a few weeks of R&R his status may be changed to semi-retired...if he so chooses!
Welcome home Patriot!
