Puppy Becomes A Guide Dog To A Blind Golden Retriever And They Are Now Inseparable. It is so lovely to see a dog helping out a human. But what’s even better is seeing a puppy helping his blind brother despite how tiny he is.
Service dogs are definitely heaven-sent for people with disabilities. Service dogs animals also helping animals and their own. They are more than willing to help a fellow animal too. Don’t believe me? Ask Adam and Chelsea Stipe whose blind senior dog has a tiny yet helpful puppy friend as his guide.
Charlie, the blind golden retriever, is 11 years old who lost both of his eyes due to glaucoma. In 2016, the poor dog’s left eye was removed and his right one was taken out a year later. Charlie is much more comfortable now. But he hasn’t had the easiest time getting around since he could no longer see.
In 2019, the Stipes decided to adopt another dog. They brought home a puppy named Maverick on New Year’s Day. Charlie wasn’t at all thrilled about the new addition to their family. But though he was blind, he couldn’t resist the adorable nugget’s charm.
The two quickly bonded well and became inseparable. That’s when Chelsea noticed something special about Maverick.
Chelsea shared that when the two would play, Maverick would notice that Charlie would lose the toy sometimes. So the pup would pick it up and put it back in front of Charlie to continue playtime. From there, the four-month-old puppy always looked after Charlie’s needs and tried to help make life easier for the senior dog in any way he can.
Maverick was never trained as a service animal, but that did not stop him from helping his blind friend. Charlie, despite his disability, did not mind the pup’s size at all. With a friendship so wholesome and pure as theirs, it’s no wonder how the pair went on to become internet stars.
