Giving hope to the blind by raising a service dog

“With Eartha, my job was to help her gain confidence and overcome her fears … but she did that for me too.”

In May of 2017, Marjorie Hernandez picked up a 3-month-old puppy named “Eartha” from a van that had arrived in Athens after traveling from Smithtown, New York. 

But this is no ordinary story of a girl who adopts a puppy.

Eartha, a cross between a Labrador retriever and Golden Retriever, came in that van from the Guide Dog Foundation to be with Marjorie for only a short time.
