This Blind Dog Has His Own Seeing-Eye Guide And They’re Looking For A Home

This inseparable pair of strays in the UK is one of the most powerful examples of animal friendship we’ve ever seen. Glenn, a Jack Russell terrier, is permanently blind, and relies on his best friend, Buzz the Staffordshire Bull Terrier, to get around confidently. The two were found in a sea tunnel in Northern England and have stayed together ever since – they grow restless and agitated when separated.

They currently reside at the Stray Aid rescue center in Coxhoe, Durham, not far from where they were found in Hartlepool. Glenn follows Buzz wherever he goes, and Buzz helps his blind friend find his food bowl, his kennel at the shelter and his bed, nudging him whenever he goes off-target.

The staff have no background info about the dogs, but believe that they are both about 9 or 10 years old and have been together for a while. They are looking for a quiet home for the two to live out their days together – preferably with someone who has retired.

Glenn and Buzz are two abandoned friends looking for a home

Glenn is blind, but that’s OK – Buzz helps him get around

He’ll nudge him towards the food bowl, the kennel, or even his bed at the Stray Aid shelter where they live

They grow anxious when separated, so the shelter’s staff want them to be adopted together

Man’s best friend? More like dog’s best friend!

Please, please, please someone in the UK - PLEASE adopt these two. I just checked the website and they are STILL available for adoption. Thanks to Clara-Marie - the world needs more people like you - if we can find one person in the UK with the same-sized heart we can avoid a scary plane ride for these two.
