Paralympic Swimmer Clarifies Misconceptions About Her Guide Dog

For the visually impaired, having a guide dog makes it much easier for them to go about their daily lives on their own.

However, it appears there is still a lot of stigma surrounding the animals, as exhibited in a recent Stomp article.

A woman wrote in to the platform to complain about a large guide dog she spotted in the MRT.

The pooch’s owner, Paralympic swimmer Sophie Soon, later took to TikTok to clarify the situation.
