Custody battle over guide dog Jenny
The retirement journey of guide dog Jenny
By Shí àihuá 石爱华
After serving blind piano tuner Chén Yàn 陈燕 for eight years, guide dog Jenny, a 10-year-old Labrador Retriever, was scheduled to retire. Before being sent to a training school for professional guide dogs in Dalian at the age of two, Jenny was raised by Mǎ ēnshū 马恩书, who offered to be the puppy’s foster mom. Ma initially thought Jenny was too naughty to be an assistance dog, but much to her surprise, Jenny excelled at her job and changed Chen’s life, who lost her sight after a car accident and once objected to going out alone.
