An ageing blind dog has found comfort in his best friend… who is also his very own seeing-eye pup!
North Carolina, United States of America – When Charlie the golden retriever lost his sight to glaucoma, his human mom and dad were not sure how their 11-year-old furry friend would get along.
But Charlie’s human’s quickly put together a plan to help their best friend and, thankfully, the North Carolina couple are documenting the journey on Instagram for all of us to see.
“Charlie had glaucoma which led to his double enucleation (both eyes removed). Now, Maverick is here to help Charlie around, and Charlie is trying to teach Maverick manners,” the post said, adding that the manners part was a work in progress.
The dogs’ story went viral after We Rate Dogs tweeted photos of the adorable animals.
After learning how much everyone loved Charlie and Maverick, the family, who now lives in Mooresville, North Carolina, created an Instagram account for the pups. In just a few days, more than 55 000 people were following the animals.
In one of the posts, the family said not only does Maverick help Charlie, but “Charlie is trying to teach Maverick manners… definitely a work in progress.”
It looks like they are best buds, check out some of their posts below:
