Scout narrowly escaped euthanasia in a shelter. No one wanted to adopt this blind dog who had so much to offer.
But his path eventually crossed that of Donna Isona 56-year-old woman who had recently lost sight of her eye.
“When Donna had her prosthetic eye fitted, she lost her confidence and was nervous about wearing an eye patch”explained his sister Tracey to Mirror.
The duo quickly created an unfailing bond. And the affectionate pooch showed his new mistress that blindness was far from insurmountable.
“Scout gave her a taste for life and showed her that being different does not prevent her from living”added Tracey.
Donna also educated Scout. She taught him the basic orders in order to guarantee his safety outside and to facilitate his existence in the house.
Voted best companion of the year 2022
The dedication of Scout was hailed by the competition for the best companion of the year at the Petplan Pet Awards which is held every year. The latter aims to celebrate the unconditional love between pets and their owners.
The prize therefore rewards the beasts “who enrich the lives of their masters and shape the world in which we live”.
The elderly pooch has indeed shown unfailing tenacity and surprises with his ability to adapt to any situation.
“If we take him to an unfamiliar room, he can instantly figure out its dimensions, jump on the couch and walk up and down the stairs. It’s amazing “reported Donna extremely grateful to her beloved dog, whom she describes as the bravest and most loving in the world.
