Guide Dog Alerts Handlers to Runaway Car ‘Barreling’ Backwards Down Sidewalk

A guide dog put his training in action Monday, alerting the people he was with to an out-of-control car coming straight toward them.

The dog was being tested by two employees of the Guide Dogs for the Blind organization when a car hopped the curb and started down the hill.

“It was just an unbelievable sight to see something going backwards, barreling down the sidewalk,” Todd Jurek, a training supervisor for Guide Dogs for the Blind, told the Marin Independent Journal.
