A Dog with a Happy “Tale”

Or, that should really be, two dogs with two happy tails.  Only two eyes though – between the two dogs – since one of them relies 100 percent on the other one to be her eyes, as she doesn’t have any.  That is why when they ended up in a shelter in England as their owner was unable to take care of them.

The two Great Danes – 7-year-old Maddison (who has both eyes) and 6-year-old Lily (who is eye-less), ended up in Telford, UK, at the Shrewsbury Dogs Trust Care.  The shelter thereafter sent out a request looking for a good home for both of these dogs, figuring it would be pretty bad to separate them, especially as Lily’s handicap had rendered her totally dependent on Maddison.  But the shelter was somewhat concerned about finding a good home, as taking care of such a dog without eyes would not be an easy feat. 

The shelter was thus shocked and delighted that the response was so incredibly overwhelming!  Indeed, thousands of individuals made contact with the shelter, asking to take on both of the dogs.  Much research and investigative work was carried out and Len and Anne Williams were chosen for the task. The couple intends to take the dogs on long walks and even on their vacations to France!
