CANADA – Smiley has quite the positive attitude, despite not being able to see.
Smiley, 12, was born without eyes and rescued from a puppy mill when he was about one or two years old.
His rescuer, Joanne George, brought him into her home, knowing he had a handful of behavioral problems due to his lack of eyesight and the conditions within the puppy mill.
George began working with Smiley, who didn’t know any commands. He learned from a Great Dane named Tyler, who was deaf.
Over time, he learned his skills and eventually became a certified St. John Ambulance (SJA) Therapy Dog. He accompanies George to clients homes to help work with patients.
