JULY 6, 2015 UPDATE: Glenn and Buzz have been adopted together into a loving new forever home!

Glenn, who is completely blind, relies on Buzz, his seeing-eye dog, to navigate the world around him.

What’s unusual is that Glenn is a 9-year-old Jack Russell Terrier. Buzz is a 10-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier.

Glenn and Buzz were found last month in a tunnel in Hartlepool, England. Sue Bielby, from the animal-rescue organization Stray Aid, told the BBC they had likely been abandoned there because of their ages.

The two terriers are inseparable.

“Glenn gets his confidence from Buzz,” Bielby told the BBC. “If they are separated even for a few minutes, they both bark and become distressed, so they would need to have a loving home together.”

She’s hoping the two can live out the rest of their days with each other in a quiet, loving forever home.

Diane Humphrey, a supervisor at Stray Aid, told the Daily Mail, “[Buzz] helps Glenn find his way to his bed by sort of pushing him toward the front of the kennel and guiding him in. Buzz also nudges him toward his food. They eat side by side, and he pushes him toward his bowl, or away from his, if Glenn is going for the wrong bowl.”

Glenn and Buzz will stay with the charity until a home for both of them is found.

“They are both lovely little dogs,” Humphrey told the Daily Mail. “They are good with people.”
