The First Seeing Eye Dog
Buddy delivered to me the divine gift of freedom…Morris Frank
Morris Frank was the first American to benefit from a Seeing Eye dog. Dorothy Eustis was an Dog breeder, who founded “The Seeing Eye,” the first guide-dog school for the blind in the United States. In 1931 Dorothy bought a ten-bedroom mansion in New Jersey so that they could have a permanent base. Today, the Seeing Eye dog school still exists and is the oldest school for guide dogs in the country.
