Blind Pup Has Her Own Seeing Eye Dog
Great Dane Lily was rendered blind thanks to a rare condition in which her eyelashes grew into her eyeballs. But thankfully she’s got guide dog Maddison — another Great Dane — to lead her around. Maddison stays close to Lily when they walk around, helping to guide her by touching her with his body to let her know the way.
The dogs sleep together, too. After several years together, the pair’s owners had to give the dogs up because they could no longer care for them. So now the two are awaiting adoption at the Dogs Trust in the British town of Shrewsbury.
“With her lack of sight, Lily’s other senses have heightened so, although we don’t split them up often, she can tell if Maddison is nearby,” explains Louise Cabell, who works at the shelter. So cute! Here’s hoping these buddies find a great new home. [The Sun]
