Southeastern Guide Dogs Name a Puppy Contest
Help us name a Southeastern Guide Dogs puppy! Simply share a name you think would be perfect for a guide dog (keep in mind that the puppy’s name will be spoken aloud often and should be easy to say, should not have negative, sensitive or offensive connotations). Please also provide any reason or background for your name choice so we can share the significance with the puppy’s future handler. In a few weeks, we'll ask you to vote on the most popular suggestions. Visit Sarasota Magazine's Facebook page to make your nomination and vote. We can't wait to hear your nomination!
