More than 30 guide dog puppies are waiting for homes in Norfolk. 

Sight loss charity Guide Dogs is searching for people across the county to adopt a puppy for just one year. 

The puppies live in their adoptive homes for their first 12-16 months before moving out to begin their training. 

This is the biggest puppy-raising scheme the charity has introduced in the county and is part of a push to train more guide dogs to assist people with sight loss.

"Being a puppy raiser for Guide Dogs is an exciting and rewarding opportunity to raise a guide dog puppy and prepare them for their future role supporting someone with sight loss."

Volunteers must be over 18 and have suitable housing.
