These 2 ‘Seeing-Eye’ Dogs Help a Blind, Old Canine Get Around

Jessica VanHusePaws-itively heartwarming

These two pups are seeing-eye dogs—for another dog.

Jessica VanHusen of Waterford, Mich. has two healthy dogs that help out her older, blind pooch, a 10-year-old Akita named Kiaya.

Kiaya had to have both eyes removed after a two-year battle with glaucoma, according to a press release on the website for BluePearl Veterinary Partners. Now, the other Akitas that VanHusen owns, 8-year-old Cass and 2-year-old Keller, are always by Kiaya’s side, grooming her, lying next to her in the yard, and watching out for her while she’s eating or when they’re all in the car together.

“It’s clear the other dogs are trying to protect her,” Dr. Gwen Sila, the veterinary ophthalmologist who performed Kiaya’s surgeries, said in a statement.
