For the gut wrenchingly heartwarming story of the day we go to Hartlepool, Durham, England where a pair of stray dogs was recently rescued. An elderly Jack Russel named Glenn (so many first names) is completely blind in both eyes, but luckily he has a buddy named Buzz, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier who is the little dog’s own guide dog.
Animal rescue staff found the unlikely duo abandoned in a sea tunnel. Now they are trying to find the inseparable pair a new home. They both become very upset if they are away from one another for more than a few minutes. This is understandable as Buzz acts as Glenn’s eyes.
They are currentlyliving at the Stray Aid center in Coxhoe where care givers say the approximately nine and ten year old dogs make quite the odd couple. Centre manager John Bielby says;
“They stay together at all times and Glenn follows Buzz wherever he goes. Wherever one goes the other one follows. They have behaved well in the kennels and they are both quite playful. They both seem to be doing well.’
While getting on in years, the two dogs still love to run and play. The blind dog does well on his own, outside where he can run freely. However, indoors Glenn needs help so he doesn’t bump into things. The guide dog Buzz even helps Glenn find his food and into bed as he guides him around the kennel.
Watch these two in action!
