Blind and deaf puppy recognizes owner when he comes home
A white Australian Shepherd mix puppy was caught on camera going crazy at the smell of her owner coming home from work.
Opal, is a double Merle and as a result of bad breeding was born completely blind and deaf.
She was videoed standing in her owner’s garden, in Spokane, Washington, patiently waiting for him to come home from work.
The loyal dog clearly has a sensitive nose as almost without warning the dog starts jumping up and down in the garden.
Moments later, Opal’s owner, Forrest Bray, appears and reaches out to give his best friend a hug and a good pat.
Despite being deaf and blind, the dog’s other senses were able to tell her just when her master was coming home.
‘Opal has been in our family for only three months and already waits for her dad to get home everyday around the same time,’ said owner Christine Bray to JukinMedia.
‘She started waiting out front for him to get home a couple of weeks ago. She will wait for an hour sometimes. Very sweet.’ Christine wrote in an email.
‘But it is when she smells him that she really goes crazy. She ignores all passing cars or the neighbor’s cars, she knows his somehow. She is such a happy and loving dog as she runs up the gate to greet him.’
