It's hard to re-home dogs with special needs, but this pair is used to beating the odds.
These fuzzy friends could use a forever home.
Say hello to Glenn and Buzz.
They're fuzzy, adorable best friends.
Buzz, on the right, is a Staffordshire bull terrier.
He serves as a guide dog, lending a hand — er, paw — to his buddy Glenn, a Jack Russell terrier that has some vision problems.
Glenn and Buzz were found wandering the streets, but now they're looking for a forever home.
The dynamic duo were found together, wandering the streets of Hartlepool, England.
Luckily, they were rescued and taken to Stray Aid, a local shelter. According to a volunteer there, both dogs seem to be around 10 years old and were likely abandoned because of their age and Glenn's vision issues.
These pups are inseparable, and they're looking for a safe, loving place to call home.
While Glenn and Buzz garner positive attention from around the globe, other pets with special needs are not as fortunate.
According to a recent survey, 19% of shelter workers say pets with special needs are the most difficult to re-home. Potential owners shy away from the added time, medical expenses, and accommodations that come with taking care of a pet with special needs.
But pets with special needs have just as much love to give and desperately need compassionate, loving families.
If you're thinking about adding a pet to your family, consider adopting through a special needs rescue or talk to someone at your local shelter about helping an animal in need find their forever home.
