A Blind Pup and His Guide Dog/Best Friend Need a Home

Posted By on Wed, May 25, 2016 at 1:30 PM

Meet Fubu and Cheerio!

Cheerio, a beautiful 8 year-old male German shepherd, has no eyes. His glaucoma was neglected for more than three years, and both of his eyes were removed to relieve his pain. 

He gets by with help from his friend and companion, Fubu, who serves as Cheerio's eyes. 

Fubu is a 7 year-old Labrador retriever mix, with a history of dental disease. Like Cheerio, he was a backyard dog surrendered to Pima Animal Control.

The two depend on each other and are completely inseparable. Their bond is so strong that Pima Animal Care Center has decided to make them a bonded pair, meaning the pups are looking for a home together.  

As PACC put it in a press release, "Cheerio—literally—gets his sense of direction from Fubu; Fubu gets his strength and confidence from Cheerio."

Tempted? PACC has this to add: "Blind dogs can teach people about courage, joy and love: Imagine the loyalty and happiness these two will bring you!"

For more information on Fubu and Cheerio contact:
