A Blind Golden Retriever Has Gotten His Own Seeing Eye Dog


Seeing eye dogs have helped visually impaired people for a very long time.

However, it is a bit more unusual to see a seeing eye dog help another dog.

But it happens! And we have a recent story right here.

Well, it all started when Charlie, an 11-year-old golden retriever owned by Adam and Chelsea Stipe, got glaucoma. Charlie had to have both of his eyes removed, making him blind.

This is getting a little heavy. I'm gonna take a quick break from all this. When I was researching for this story, I found this really cute Tweet, and I think you guys will like it.

The Stipes probably saw a similar video because they went out and got a golden retriever puppy to add to their family.

His name is Maverick and he's 4 months old.

Today reports that there was a little bit of friction when Maverick first came home, but Charlie and Maverick have been best friends ever since.

Not only are they best friends, but Maverick is actually helping Charlie navigate through life.

Chelsea states, "When they would play, Maverick would realize that Charlie would lose the toy sometimes, so (Maverick) would pick it up and put it back in front of him to re-engage playtime".

Maverick also helps guide Charlie with sock toys and even shares the car window so they can both look outside during car rides.

Here's to you Maverick and Charlie! Hope your adventures never end.
