Far too often, disabled dogs are passed over for healthier, able-bodied pups. However, as the two videos below show, disabled dogs can learn to do anything they want and completely touch our hearts in the pawcess.
First up, this video of a blind dog named Kellar playing fetch. This amazing pup doesn’t let his lack of sight stop him from partaking in the favorite game of all dogs! Watch as he uses his incredible hearing and owner’s instructions to find the toy!
That might be the cutest backward scoot I’ve ever seen. He is so happy!
The next video is a prime example of a shelter never giving up on a dog. Rosie is a pit bull-mix who was taken in by the Central Nebraska Humane Society. The workers at the shelter couldn’t understand why Rosie didn’t respond to their calls. That’s when shelter volunteer Tracie Pfeifle realized Rosie was deaf. Pfeifle made it her goal to teach Rosie sign language.
In an ending fit for a movie, Rosie was adopted by Cindy Koch, who is also deaf. As the video below shows, the two developed a bond immediately.
If that doesn’t bring a tear to your eye, nothing will! High paws to Pfeifle and Koch, and extremely high paws to both amazing pups!
