Leslie is a 3/4 golden retriever, 1/4 labrador female who just turned three years old in October 2011. She was retired as a breeder for Guide Dogs for the Blind after her first litter. She had 8 puppies in March 2011 and is ready to move on from being a mom to being an assistance dog for Early Alert Canines. She currently lives at home with the family who raised her as a guide dog puppy and shares her home with two kids (ages 3, 6), two other golden retrievers, two cats, eight chickens, a guinea pig, and two fish. Her favorite day time activities include eating, playing with a tennis ball, lying on your feet and going for walks. Most of all, she loves to be with people!

Here are some photos of Leslie growing up:
