These two abandoned dogs need a new home together – because one acts as the other’s GUIDE DOG.
Glenn the elderly Jack Russell is permanently blind and is guided by Buzz a Staffordshire Bull Terrier.
The inseparable pair were found abandoned together in a sea tunnel in Hartlepool, Durham three weeks ago.
They were rescued and are now being cared for at the Stray Aid centre in nearby Coxhoe where staff are now hoping to find the pals a new home.
Staff say the unlikely pair – thought to be between nine and 10 – may have been abandoned because of their age.
Sue Bielby said the two friends become distressed when apart for even a few minutes.
She said staff had already fallen in love with them and while Glenn is “not the prettiest dog on the block” he has a personality that more than makes up for it.
“Buzz acts as Glenn’s eyes and it’s as simple as that. 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.”
Centre manager John Beilby, 56, said: “They stay together at all times and Glenn follows Buzz wherever he goes.
“Wherever one goes the other one follows.
“They have behaved well in the kennels and they are both quite playful. They both seem to be doing well.”
John said they were looking for a quiet home for the pair, perhaps with someone who was retired – and ideally had furniture that doesn’t move around.
He added: “They are unique pair and we need to see they go to a good home.”
