Lily was puppy when she was struck down by a condition that caused her eyelashes to grow into her eyeballs, damaging them beyond repair. At the time, she was living with seven-year-old Great Dane, Maddison. Maddison knew instantly that Lily was blind and took her under her wing.
Since then, the two have been inseparable:
‘Maddison is Lily’s guide dog. If they are out and about, for the majority of the time Maddison will lead and Lily will walk nearly touching her so she knows where to go. It’s lovely to watch. Maddison is always looking out for her. They curl up together to go to sleep as well.'
Sadly Lily and Maddison's owners were unable to look after the dogs and gave them to the Dogs Trust Re-Homing center in Shrewsbury, UK. The owner of the center wouldn't dare separate the best friends.
'The two Great Danes come as a package. There's no way they should ever be separated. I'm sure they will find a loving home soon.'
