In Kennebunk, Maine, a five-year-old dog who is visually impaired, has received the best gift. The dog’s two-year-old daughter has become a guide dog for her father. Now Pinky and Flash are looking for a permanent home together.
The Animal Welfare Society of Kennebunk rescued two-year-old Pinky and five-year-old Flash. Before arriving at the Maine shelter, the two dogs lived outside and had no experience indoors. The dogs had to be house-trained and taught how to navigate around a home. That’s when Pinky’s services became vital. Flash can’t see well and was having a difficult time maneuvering around tables, chairs, and beds.
The Animal Welfare Society has reported that both dogs are ready to be adopted. Hopefully, the two will be adopted as a pair, since Flash has come to depend entirely on Pinky to help him get around. Flash is really only comfortable with his daughter acting as his seeing-eye guide, so separating the two dogs is not something the shelter wants to do.
The shelter has described Pinky as a very sweet and highly social dog. PInky can be shy at first, but once she gets to know someone, Pinky is affectionate and playful. Pinky’s father, Flash, is a gentle dog who desperately needs a family to love. Flash is mild-mannered and no trouble since he has Pinky to guide him. The shelter commented that they are quickly learning how to live in a home environment and are ready to become family pets.
Pinky and Flash have come to love curling up on soft beds together and sleeping under warm blankets. The only thing Pinky and her dad have trouble with is chewing on things they shouldn’t. But, both dogs are evolving and have made huge improvements.
With the help of a patient family, Pinky and Flash could be dream pets. The Animal Welfare Society is asking $99 for the pair of adorable dogs, and hope that spreading the word about PInky and Flash on social media will help them find a home.
