The staff of the shelter where they live are looking for a loving family for 2 inseparable dogs, one of whom is blind. A story told by Inews.
Penny7-year-old near-blind Shih Tzu, and Sandya 10-year-old Jack Russell Terrier cross, were in a very sad state when they arrived at the refuge of the RSPCA of Saint Columbcity in the center of Cornwall (south west of England).
Cared for and pampered by the volunteers, they are doing much better today, but it is now high time for them to end their life at the shelter and meet a new one within a family.
The team of RSPCA of Saint Columb wishes to have them adopted together, because they cannot deprive each other.
« Penny is so adorable and more confident than her friend, even though she has restricted vision. This does not prevent him from displaying a real joie de vivre », that Sammy Howard of the RSPCA.
He adds that ” Sandy is her best friend and practically acts as a guide dog, helping Penny get her bearings. Penny is never far from her girlfriend ».

“Penny helps Sandy gain confidence”
Sandy was very anxious and wouldn’t let anyone near her, let alone touch her. However, the volunteers were very understanding and patient with them, which allowed him to make enormous progress. ” After about a week, we were slowly able to gain her trust and she really started to come out of her shell. As Penny is very sociable, she helps Sandy gain confidence “Says Sammy Howard in this regard.
The ideal for this duo would be to find a quiet home, without other pets or young children. To the RSPCA of Saint Columbwe hope that the media coverage of their story will make this dream come true.
