If blind humans use guide dogs, whose to say a blind dog can't use one either?
Two dogs who have been turned over to Lucky Paws Animal Adoption in Albequerque, New Mexico share a special bond that the adoption agency refuses to break.
Scarlett, a Chuhuahua mix, serves as a guide dog to a blind Miniature Pinscher named Rhett.
The doggy duo were handed over to the adoption agency after their owner was no longer able to take care of them and due to their unique relationship, the agency required potential parents to adopt BOTH of them or none.
Scarlett, who has "never led him astray", wears a bell on her collar that allows her blind "brother" to follow toward food, bathroom spots, and even through doorways, which would be almost impossible otherwise for Rhett.
We're happy to report that the pair is still together after being adopted by a nurse who has experience caring for blind dogs!
Yay! We love happy endings!
