What you see here is no ordinary puppy.
Some people just see a puppy.
We see confidence and independence.
We see the ability to go anywhere and do anything.

When you name an Israel Guide Dog Center puppy, you’re changing someone’s world. And that makes you a hero for a superhero! Your $5,000 sponsorship helps us care for our priceless puppies. It helps us to operate our Puppy Development and Training Campus, supporting their journey from puppy to a world-class guide dog, PTSD service dog, emotional support dog or ambassador dog.
Not every puppy grows up to become a guide or service dog, but every puppy makes an impact. And someday. They’ll reach their true potential because people like you care enough to make a difference.

What name will you choose?
Choosing a name for your sponsored puppy is a unique way to connect with it personally.
When choosing a name, here are a few considerations.
- The puppy’s name may be spoken often by its partner when using commands. Will the name you choose be comfortable for the partner to say without drawing unwanted attention? Avoid names that may have a negative connotation. Our staff previews every name for what we call the ‘pavement test’. How will the public perceive it when heard on a busy street corner?
- Our trainers and volunteers work with about 80-120 dogs every year, and duplicate names can cause confusion. If the name you choose has been used for one of our puppies in the last 12 months, there may be an extended wait before your name can be applied. If that happens, we will contact you to review your options.
- When choosing your name, you may also choose the gender of puppy, if desired. As much as we’d like to, we cannot fulfill other special requests such as breed or color of dog. Thanks for understanding.
- Our Puppy Breeding Department intentionally spaces litters throughout the year, so depending on the timing of your sponsorship, there may be a waiting period before we can identify the puppy who will receive the name you have chosen. Thanks for your patience. And thanks again for the puppy love!
