Blue Peter welcomes new guide dog Iggy to the show!


The Blue Peter team have introduced a new guide puppy to the show called Iggy!

Presenters Barney Harwood, Lindsey Russell and Radzi Chinyanganya announced Iggy was on the way last week after being born in April.

Blue Peter has been working with the Guide Dog Organisation for fifty years and have helped raise loads of money for the charity. Almost 5000 people in the UK who are blind or struggle to see clearly have a guide dog who helps them do things like go to the shops and cross the road without getting hurt.

Expect to see more of Iggy over the coming months on CBBC!

Find out more about Iggy on the Blue Peter website.

Blue Peter: Brand New Puppy is on CBBC on this Sunday at midday.
