Dog

Meet a blind dog who needs a new home and comes with his own guide dog.

Meet a blind dog who needs a new home and comes with his own guide dog. Witness the extraordinary bond between these two canine companions and the power of partnership in overcoming obstacles.

When ten-year-old Zac went blind his companion Lilli stepped in to prove that a dog’s best friend is … another dog.

Zac, who had his eyes removed five years ago, now relies on his fellow Jack Russell terrier for direction.

On walks, he stays inches from her side, and she allows him lay his head on her when he becomes sleepy or disoriented.Since they were rescued as stray puppies a decade ago, the pair has been inseparable, and when an eye illness took Zac’s sight, Lilli became his guide dog.

The owner of the pair has relocated abroad, and they are looking for a new home. Zac would be lost without Lilli, according to Sarah Bussell of the Blue Cross charity in Tiverton, Devon, and the dogs had to be re-homed together.

”They are completely attached and appear to have an almost telepathic connection, which is very fascinating to watch,’ she added.When they’re out and about, Zak sniffs and scents Lilli and stays close to her so he knows which way to go.

‘She reassures him and physically helps him by pushing him in the correct path when he loses his way. Lilli stays by his side at all times and is extremely patient.
Zac is a sweetheart who enjoys receiving attention.

‘She certainly recognizes that he is different from the other dogs and takes care not to run into him too much.

‘When he’s not on the lead, they live together in the re-homing section of the shelter and are quite close.’

Zac has been in care before; he was initially taken in by the Blue Cross center when he was a puppy many years ago. However, his heartbroken owner was forced to return him after emigrating and being unable to take her beloved dogs with her.

The organization is hoping that a loving family would take the pair in so that they may live a tranquil life with a regular routine.

‘Zac is a very loving gentleman who adores attention,’ Sarah added. Because he can’t see, his other senses are enhanced, and his small tail begins to wag as soon as you come in.

‘He is still a very happy dog who lives a full life.

‘His future owner would need to be cautious not to change things about so that Zac can have a clear passage around the home and he’d need to be on a lead when he goes on walks.

‘In return, Zac and Lilli would be wonderful friends who would lavish attention on whoever adopted them.’
