Smiley the 15-year-old Golden Retriever was born without eyes. The dog is also mostly deaf but can hear some high-pitched sounds. He was in a puppy mill for the first two years of his life and placed on the euthanasia list. But thankfully, someone understood he had so much life left to live.
Veterinarian Joanne George rescued Smiley and adopted him herself! The Golden Retriever fit right in and even went on to become a therapy dog to teach kids about bullying and acceptance.
In the video below, Smiley’s having the time of his life prancing around in the snow. It’s crazy to think he was about to be killed off before he could enjoy the little things in life. It’s very heartwarming to watch — you have to see it for yourself! 🙂
