A blind and deaf dog has gone viral after his owner revealed how he loves to comfort foster animals that stay at their home until they get a forever owner.
According to Sheryl Smith who’s been working as a foster parent of helpless animals for several years, she has taken Shiro the blind dog under her wing after learning that he had been abandoned four times in the past.
“He was a handful but everyone else had given up on him and we weren’t prepared to do that too. He still to this day cries in the car because he thinks he’s being dropped off somewhere else,” she shared in an interview with The Dodo.
While life with Shiro may not be easy and free of struggles, Sheryl has revealed that his “love and compassion for the other rescues is nothing short of amazing.”
“Just after his rescue l rescued a pregnant dog who was too sick to care for her pups, so Shiro climbed in with them and started cleaning them,” Sheryl told The Dodo.
“He’s done that with every rescue I take in. He will just sit patiently with the feral cats/kittens and bonds so strongly with them, they trust him before they trust me.”
Not long ago, Shiro and Sheryl have also adopted a kitten called Tiny Tolley whom the blind dog had grown especially attached to and protective of.
“Shiro never left her crate for a second. He knew she was so sick and so scared and that she needed to be comforted,” Sheryl explained.
“His love and compassion for the other rescues is nothing short of amazing.”
