Blind Border Collie Roy And BFF Bess Looking For Forever Home

Blind Border Collie Roy And BFF Bess Looking For Forever Home

Two doggo BFFs are looking for their forever homes after being dumped in a forest and taken in by the RSPCA.

Blind Border Collie Roy and his 'guide dog' companion Bess, both nine, were heartbreakingly found tied up in the woods in Cumbria before being taken in.

The charity believes the dogs were previously working on a farm before being abandoned by their owner, who felt they couldn't take care of them any longer.

It is now looking for one kind person to re-home the dogs together, seeing as Roy is blind in one eye and seriously impaired in the other.

This means that not only are Roy and Bess are inseparable pals, but Roy is also dependant on his companion to help him navigate through life.

RSPCA Westmorland branch manager Christine Lowe said: "The most important thing for this pair is that they are rehomed together. They're extremely close and Roy relies heavily on Bess.

"They are both lovely, friendly, happy dogs who deserve a home where they'll get all of the affection they crave as they come into their senior years.

"They need a home where they can live out their days in comfort with someone who understands their unique needs."

The pair are up for adoption as part of the charity's elderly animal rehoming scheme, and any kind owner who takes them on will be offered assistance paying their vet bills.

While the pouches have never lived in a home before, they're happy being left alone for short periods of time, and are already trained to understand some commands, like 'sit'.

The charity adds that they're fine living with children, but would ideally not be homed with cats.

It writes: "They are lovely, happy dogs and don't ask for much; they really don't need 5-star accommodation.

"All they want is to be looked after together as they grow older. Some food, a walk and somewhere sheltered to sleep and they would be very content indeed."

If you think you've got the perfect home for these two besties then please let the RSPCA know by clicking here.

You really would be giving two old pups a second chance at life.
