The charity Guide Dogs has revealed that the first guide dog of the new year, and the new decade, has been born.

It's a boy - and he's the first of over 1,200 guide dog puppies that the charity think will be born this year.

The labradoodle puppy was one of eight siblings. He was born on 2 January in a home in Warwickshire.
