Eve was found abandoned and freezing in a snowdrift on Christmas Eve. The little puppy was taken to Marley's Mutts Dog Rescue in Tehachapi, CA last year. Rescuers found that the Catahoula Leopard Dog mix was completely deaf, was missing an eye, and had poor sight in her other eye.
Dillon is a Border Collie cross that was dropped off at a boarding facility in Lancaster and was never reclaimed by his owners. He was found to be completely blind. The two dogs were introduced to one another and life for them would never be the same.
"Here were these two unique dogs, each significantly disabled, between whom we soon witnessed an amazing relationship unfolding," as explained on Marley's Mutts' Facebook page. "It turned out they were disabled in ways that complimented one another. They immediately bonded, quite literally becoming one another's guide dogs. Dillon soothed Eve's anxiousness. Eve gave Dillon a sense of purpose. Watching Dillon and Eve play can only be described as magical. We prayed that somehow they would be adopted together. And just recently, they were."
The two will begin their lives together in their new forever home with Shelly Scudder, who saw their picture and story on Facebook. After meeting with the two dogs, she says that she fell in love with and decided to adopt the pair. "I think they're going to enjoy their lives together here," she says.
