RICHMOND, VIRGINIA — A blind dachshund in Richmond, Virginia recently reunited with his best friend guide dog after the pair was forced to be split up.
According to Richmond Animal Control Center, 6-year-old pit bull Blue Dozer and 12-year-old dachshund OJ were given to the animal shelter because the owner became homeless and could no longer provide proper care to the dogs.
It was obvious to the shelter staff the duo is bonded for life, also because OJ is visually-impaired and has to depend on Blue Dozer to show him the way.
Luckily, someone adopted the pair, however, OJ the blind dachshund was abandoned just days after the adoption.
OJ was then rescued by the Shenandoah Valley Animal Services Center.
The animal service center told NBC12 that the person who adopted the dogs said she is not interested in keeping OJ because he bites.
Fortunately, she eventually decided to give Dozer up so he and OJ could hopefully be adopted together. The pair were then reunited, and they couldn't have been happier.
Determined to find a new forever home for the duo, the shelter posted about the pair on Facebook and emphasized that they needed to be adopted together.
