Abandoned Blind Dog Depends on His Faithful Seeing Eye Dog

An abandoned blind dog and his fellow guide dog warmed the hearts of viewers on ABC's "Good Morning America" as a rescue organization in the United Kingdom looks for a home for the pair.

Glenn, the blind Jack Russell Terrier, and Buzz, his larger Staffordshire Bull Terrier pal, have been inseparable since they were found in a sea tunnel together in Hartpool and are currently under the care of Stray Aide in Coxhoe, according to ABC News.



Buzz serves as Glenn's eyes as the two walk and play together. Hannah Critchlow, a volunteer with Stray Aid, said the goal is the keep Glenn and Buzz together with an adoption.

Diane Humphrey, a supervisor at Stray Aid, said Glenn is fine in open spaces where he can run around unobstructed, but Buzz becomes his protector indoors where he prevents Glenn from bumping into things.

"He helps Glenn find his way to his bed by sort of pushing him towards the front of the kennel and guiding him in," said Humphrey. "We think they have been together for a long time but we don't know for sure."

"They are inseparable," said Critchlow. "They instantly had a bond when they came in, so we kept them together. Whenever they're separated they start crying and barking for each other. They have to stay together."

Critchlow said that since the news spread about the dogs and their companionship, Stray Aid has received more than 20 calls inquiring about them.

"Some dogs are here months and months and not one person looks at them or has interest, so there's an unusual amount of interest in them," said Critchlow. "Everyone is in love with them, and they're both (are) just so friendly, lovable and very chill."

The dogs are both around 10 years old and their ages are likely the reason they were abandoned, according to the Daily Mail.

Sue Bielby said the dogs become distressed if they are apart from even the shortest time.

"Buzz acts as Glenn's eyes and it's as simple as that," Bielby told the Daily Mail. "Glenn gets his confidence from Buzz. If they are separated even for a few minutes they both bark and become distressed so they would need to have a loving home together."
