Dog Kimchi and his guide dog! - Wikipet
Can a dog have a dog? How can it! In the capital of the Philippines, one dog has not just another dog, but its own guide! Recently, this couple is actively gaining popularity in local media.
Kimchi (this, incidentally, is the name of a spicy Asian cabbage dish) is a spaniel that is about 9-12 years old. He is blind. That is why the dog is accompanied everywhere by a reliable friend - an eleven-year-old retriever nicknamed Ginger (translated from English means "red" or "ginger").
Kimchi's owners initially doubted whether to take Ginger as a companion for the blind dog. The retriever was known for excessive aggression towards dogs. However, it turned out that the animals immediately fell in love with each other and no problems arose.
The couple said: “Right after the shelter, we took them for a walk. She went just fine - Ginger even licked his partner several times. It turned out that Kimchi chose us as hosts, and Ginger chose Kimchi as a friend. ”
Kimchi was rescued several years ago when his sick and almost blind were abandoned on the street.
Three years later, he completely lost his sight. Fortunately, Ginger appeared nearby, a reliable guide that helps a friend see the world. The owners of the couple claim that the retriever took on such an important role himself and did not undergo any training.
Kimchi does not mind at all that he is being driven everywhere like that. Well, in most cases for sure. They always go out for a walk together - the blind man and his guide
The owners of two friends became active volunteers in the shelter, where they met new members of their family. Kimchi and Ginger are also active and help the community - travel to hospitals and schools, providing moral support to people.
