NBC's TODAY Show welcomed a new 'Puppy with a Purpose' and revealed that a handful of NBC stations across the country will be raising their own puppy as part of the #TODAYPuppySquad.

11Alive is excited to welcome our very own male Labrador puppy to the family Izzy, and for the next 16 months, we'll be working with the Guide Dog Foundation to raise a guide dog for an individual who is legally or totally blind.
