YOUNG Elsi and Vespa are preparing to spend a lifelong loan for a helping hand to the Australians who live with disabilities.
Guide Dogs SA / NT pooches are currently in different stages of training, with Vespa on his way to becoming an autism dog.
Although they are unlikely to ever ask for something in return for their work, the Engagement Guided Dogs Worldwide will be recognized at the International Guide Dog Day celebrations this week.
While the annual event is technically falling today, Guide Dogs SA / NT will hold a "Paws Parade" through the city on Friday.
The parade with 200 clients, volunteers, supporters, staff and dogs, starts from Guide Dogs SA's Morphett St office at. 30.9.
It will travel down King William St to the Government House, where the prices will be presented for examinations and Guide Dogs SA / NT CEO Aaron Chia said that it was "an opportunity to honor and express our gratitude to the dogs that changes the lives of people living with disabilities. "
The Royal Society for the Blind will also mark the International Guide Dog Day with puppies at the Rundle Mall.
