Charlie, a blind 11-year-old golden retriever is now able to "see" again thanks to a 4-month-old golden retriever puppy named Maverick.

In 2016, Charlie lost both of his eyes from glaucoma.

His owners, Chelsea and Adam Stipe, decided to get a puppy who turned out to be a savior for Charlie.

As the two dogs became friends, Maverick began to notice that something was different about Charlie.

"When they would play, Maverick would realize that Charlie would lose the toy sometimes, so (Maverick) would pick it up and put it back in front of him to re-engage playtime," Chelsea said.


Even during walks, the two dogs learned how to support each other.

"They almost turn into little sled dogs where they'll walk together," Chelsea said.
