NEVER underestimate a dog with a disability.
Many times we have seen dogs with disabilities, who have shown us that despite such adversity, there is still a fighting spirit in them.
It is the same with the hero of our story today, the golden retriever Smiley, who is completely blind from birth but is constantly happy, which is why he is employed as a therapy dog for mentally ill patients and the disabled.
“Joyful and loving,” is how patients describe him.
Smiley was born without both eyes, but found a happy home with owner Joanne, who is also a coach and who claims that it is very important that “Smiley explores the environment around him, using his instincts, without people hovering around him, every time when he hits something, and it happens very often.”
Joanne also revealed how some patients don’t laugh at all, until Smiley comes to visit them.
And who could resist a sweet face like this?
