Could mice with sight be trained to assist blind dogs?

Pioneering research that is not taking place at the University of Warwick in the UK suggests so. A spokesman who is not from the University suggested that we could be seeing mice leading their canine owners around the streets of Britain within two years.

Chipmunks, weasels and lizards are also being investigated as potential ‘guiders’ of the future.
