Humans are known to have guide dogs, but what about canines who have their own seeing eye dogs? Charlie, an 11-year-old golden retriever who had lost his sight due to glaucoma, is the case in point.
Charlie, who had been a part of Chelsea and Adam Stipe’s family since he was a puppy, was a wonderful and devoted friend for all those years. The couple from North Carolina also did everything they could to help him. “It was a no-brainer for us to deplete our retirement savings to care for this puppy since he makes us happy,” Chelsea explained.
The woman explained that they had always desired another dog so Charlie could have a close buddy with whom he could share his emotions. So, in January, the Stipe family grew a bit bigger when Maverick, a lovely four-month-old dog, joined them.
Charlie was first unconcerned about his new buddy, but as time passed, he grew to like him. Chelsea, on the other hand, noticed anything odd about her pets after some time. When Charlie suffered due to his eyesight, the tiny Maverick began to encourage and assist him, according to CBS News.
“They’re both a little wild and unique.” They are unquestionably a source of amusement for us. When they were playing, Maverick saw that Charlie would occasionally misplace the toy and would pick it up and place it in front of him to re-engage playtime. Chelsea described her beloved pets as “almost turning like miniature sled dogs where they’ll stroll together.” The Stipes chose to share their dogs’ tale on social media after witnessing how rare and beautiful their dog’s love is.
The couple has their own Instagram account, which has over 75,000 followers in only a few days.
Chelsea told NBC about the overwhelming response:
IT WAS OUT OF THIS WORLD, AND NOT AT ALL WHAT I HAD EXPECTED.
EVERYTHING HAS BEEN SO POSITIVE AND LOVELY, AND I’VE EVEN HAD PEOPLE CONTACT ME ABOUT THEIR GLAUCOMA-SUFFERING DOGS.
Dogs are demonstrating once again that they are remarkable, one-of-a-kind, and wonderful creatures!
