We usually see blind people who have guide dogs that serve as their eyes. However, it’s rare that we ever see a blind dog having a guide too. Even if that’s scenario is not the norm, there’s no one stopping people from getting guide dogs for blind dogs. In fact, here is a story that revolves around this unlikely partnership.
Meet Charlie, a blind golden retriever. He is eleven-years-old and is unable to see. The owners had to remove his eyes at an early age because he was suffering from glaucoma. Now he has a guide dog named Maverick he’s a 4-month-old golden retriever.
The dogs were then introduced to each other, and they soon became good friends. As they got comfortable with each other, Maverick started supporting Charlie during their routine walks. Chelsea and Adam Stipe are the owners of both these dogs.
When the couple only had Charlie, they were already considering getting another dog. It seems like they didn’t regret the decision of getting another dog. Chelsea explains that both her dogs are pretty crazy and a good source of entertainment.
The story of how Maverick and Charlie got together is heartwarming. At first, Charlie wasn’t comfortable with the new dog. However, he grew closer to Maverick once the new dog realized the situation they are in.
When the two dogs would play, Charlie would often have trouble locating the toy they are playing with. Maverick took the initiative to help Charlie find the toy. He would put the toy in front of Charlie. Even during the dog walks Maverick would take the initiative to support Charlie.
Ever since they became inseparable, the age difference didn’t matter to these two. All that mattered to them is that they are together and supporting each other. This partnership is so touching that it gained a lot of attention in several social media platforms. You can follow their Instagram @charlieandmav.
