I always thought blind people were given instruction in the use and treatment of their guide dog. If this isn't the case then it should be. If he/she mistreats the dog then it is correct to have it withdrawn.
The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association i believe own the Dog, they pay a lot of money having it trained and also training the Blind Partner, again i believe a nominal fee of Ten Bob is paid by the Blind person to the Association, but ultimately it is the associations decision whether or not a dog can remain with its partner.
To feed any dog a diet of Fish and Chips and keep it in the garage is pretty daft and unhealthy but to do it to a working dog is ridiculous! that's if it is true.
Any complaints should be investigated thoroughly, a Dog will not be removed at the drop of a Hat.
The Association covers most if not all the daily costs of the dogs, from Veterinary bills to harnesses.
The Partner has a responsibility to the Association and the Dog to keep it Healthy, Happy and concentrated when working at all times, they are taught how to feed and groom correctly.
“I kept it in the garage 24 hours a day.” ...am I missing something here or did he deserve to have the dog taken away? There is a reason why dogs should not be fed fish and chips and I'm sure blindness does not mean that you lose you common sense and sense of responsibility.
