Blind dog has his own guide dog! 1bcdf010


A Staffordshire bull terrier cross has formed a special bond with a dog who navigates him around and helps him find his water bowl.

Amos was born blind at a rescue centre and struggled to find a family.

But Jess Martin, a 27-year-old who works in HR for the Cheshire Fire and Rescue service, fell in love with him when she was volunteering at the centre and adopted him in August last year.

She was initially wary of how her border terrier, nine-year-old Toby, would take to his new brother.

But the pair quickly became best friends and Toby is now Amos' unofficial guide dog.

He protects Amos from other dogs and gives him a nudge when he can't locate his water bowl.

"I thought it would be very difficult to find an owner and while Amos was on medical care for four months, we decided to foster him in February last year but after a while we realised we would never give him back," Ms Martin said.
