MORRISTOWN, N.J. (WCBS 880) — New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy signed a bill Tuesday designating the Seeing Eye dog as the official dog of the Garden State.

The oldest guide dog school in the country is headquartered in Morristown.

The school, called The Seeing Eye, says it has trained more than 17,000 guide dogs and paired them with blind owners.

The school started in Nashville in 1929, but relocated to New Jersey two years later.
