Guide dogs are a great companion for blind people to get around safely. Sherman, a guide dog owned by Robert Miller, saved his owner from being seriously injured, or worse, getting killed. The man was trying to cross an intersection when an eighteen-wheel semi-truck was about to pass by. The dog acted quickly enough for its owner to be only clipped by the large vehicle.
The dog was presented by the mayor of Tallahassee, John Marks, with a Medal of Valor for his heroic deeds. The mayor also proclaimed October 15th to be “White Cane Safety Day in Tallahassee” to call the attention of the people of the state for blind pedestrians.
