Amos was born blind at a rescue centre and struggled to find a family. Jess Martin, a volunteer at a local rescue organization, heard about the lovely Staffordshire and offered to open her home for him.
However Jess was intially worried of how her 9-year- old terrier Toby, would be with his new brother. But they both became quickly best friends and Toby is now Amo’s unofficial guide dog.They had been on some incredible adventures together, and have formed a wonderful bond, therefore the thought of adding to their small family sounded a touch daunting. After a couple of days of uncertainty between Toby and Amos, their friendship bloomed.
At home, Toby is there to nudge Amos towards his water bowl, push ipen the door for him, or just cuddle up on the couch with each other. The two even work on synchronized commands during training time.
Amo’s main problem is that the other dogs don’t like him when they approach him, obviously because he can’t communicate the same way, so he doesn’t have any friends. But thankfully Toby is there to keep him safe and be his best companion.
