Blind Jack Russell and his guide dog inseparable after being abandoned

BUZZ AND GLENN are best friends who just don’t go anywhere without each other.

The pair were rescued from a sea tunnel in England just three weeks ago.

Glenn is a permanently blind elderly Jack Russell who is guided by Staffordshire Bull Terrier Buzz.

They are now at Stray Aid Rescue Centre in Coxhoe, Durham hoping get a new home.

Staff at the centre say the two dogs will need to be re-homed together because they become distressed when they are apart for even a few minutes.

Buzz even helps Glenn find his bed and food and pushes the right bowls to him if he’s eating the wrong one.

Sue Bielby told the BBC, “Buzz acts as Glenn’s eyes and it’s as simple as that.”

Glenn gets his confidence from Buzz, and if they were separated even for a few minutes they both bark and become distressed, so they would need to have a loving home together.
