A blind dog has found a soulmate who takes care of it every day, highlighting the potential for animals to form deep and meaningful bonds with one another, and the importance of providing care and support to animals in need. The emotional significance of this display of companionship and mutual support is profound, underscoring the capacity for animals to provide comfort and solace to one another, even in the face of adversity.

Jess Martin first met Amos when she was volunteering at a rescue center, and she knew it might be tough for him to find a loving family. Amos was born blind, and he needed medical care, including an operation to have his eyes removed. His life wouldn’t always be easy, but she could start by providing a loving home, starting as a foster. The only question left was whether Amos would get along with her nine-year-old Border Terrier, Toby…

A couple days into her “foster” life with Amos, who came from a kennel and had no real experience socializing with other dogs, she noticed him trying to find his water bowl. Then, “Toby nudged him and helped him out.” A few months later, the adoption process was made official and Toby and Amos were well on their way to being best friends for life.

Jess says that on walks, Amos would often get scared of random noises “and Toby quickly picked up that he needed help — so every time Amos was stopping, Toby would go and lie next to him till he would be ready.”

 Amos has trouble meeting other dogs, “other dogs don’t like him when they approach him, obviously because he cannot communicate the same way, so he doesn’t have other friends.” But Toby is always there for him.

Toby and Amos go on a lot of adventures outdoors together. That’s partially because Amos still gets nervous when he’s outside in busier animals. This way, Martin explains, “He can get used to the great outdoors in a more quiet setting.”
