Blair is a 1-year-old black Labrador mix brought to the Woodland West Animal Hospital in Tulsa, Okla., after she was shot while living on the streets. After he recovered from his wounds, Blair remained at the clinic, a timid and nervous pup whose difficult history.
Then there was tanner, a 2 year old Golden Retriever puppy who was born blind and with a seizure disorder. "His seizure disorder was really, really bad and nothing - no medications - seemed to be helping," ...It's a nightmare anytime you have a 90-lb dog experiencing this nightly; it made living in a home very, very difficult."
"One day they were exercising in a play yard together and they got together, Jones said. "Blair all of a sudden seemed to realize that Tanner was blind and just started to help him around.
The bond is so strong and instinctive that if Tanner has a leash on, Blair will pick it up and guide her friend around, according to Jones. Likewise, he said, Tanner has had a calming influence on Blair, making the former street dog much less timid and anxious.
The next task is to find the two dogs a home together. They absolutely have to be adopted together,"... "But it's going to take a special home with someone who understands their special relationship, plus understands seizure disorder and is ready to take on the responsibility."
