Blind man’s missing seeing-eye dog found safe

February 2, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Jeff Blazer’s seeing-eye dog was found over the weekend after fleeing their accommodation in Kissimmee. Just before the storms last week, the seeing-eye dog, Devon, became distressed and ran from the rental home Blazer and Devon were staying in whilst Blazer attending a convention for work in Kissimmee.

Due to the amount of time and care put into training seeing-eye dogs, all seeing-eye dogs are estimated to be worth around $40,000 each, claims Kelli Parker of Division of Blind Services.

Jeff Blazer was born blind, and for the last 8 years, his constant companion has been Devon. “He goes everywhere with me. He travels on airplanes, and trains, and cabs. Wherever I am, he is,” he said. It would appear that, due to being in unfamiliar territory, Devon spooked, ran and could not find his way home.

Found safe and well, Devon and Blazer have thankfully been reunited.
