Family Adopts Blind Puppy… and His Own Seeing Eye Dog

When one family ventured out into the country to adopt a dog, they weren’t expecting any problems. The farmer selling the puppies had two healthy, registered Australian Shepherds that mated. So when they took their little blue merle puppy home, they were shocked to find out he was blind. He knew his old home so well that he moved around as if he could see.

So, they went back to the farmer, but not to return their puppy. They decided to also adopt his remaining brother. They wanted their blind puppy to always have a companion… and his own seeing eye dog.  This is the short story of Booker and Tiberius…
Meet Booker and Tiberius, 2 Australian Shepherd puppies from the same litter.

And every day, Tiberius acts as Booker’s seeing-eye dog. As they grow up together, Booker will learn to follow him through new situations.

Although, for the most part, Booker is doing just fine.
