Guide dog saves trainers from out-of-control car
SAN RAFAEL, Calif. (KGO) -- A dog being trained to become a seeing-eye animal passed a frightening, real-life test in San Rafael Monday morning.
A yellow lab named O'Neil was guiding two employees from Guide Dogs for the Blind along Fourth Street when an out of control car nearly ran them down.
O'Neil heard and saw the car first. One of the employees had a blindfold on, pretending to be blind, the other one hurried everyone around the corner.
The 93-year-old woman driving the sedan lost control while trying to parallel park. She was not injured when the car crashed.
