What a lovely story. I have heard of dogs doing that.

A rescue I used to volunteer with pulled several dogs from the same shelter one time. One was totally blind, the other, like the rest, totally normal. They were not housed together in the shelter, but they were once they got home and into quarantine, just by chance. The male sighted one immediately bonded with the blind female, who found him annoying as hell, but couldn't shake him. So we named them Sonny and Cher. LOL

Sonny would wake Cher for meals, guide her to her food and water bowls, and guide her to their potty place. Sonny was always licking Cher's ears, constantly at her side, guiding and tending to her. If we had to pick up Cher for, say... nail trimming, Sonny would freak out and cry, bark, and generally cause a ruckus. So we had to do their grooming and vet visits together. They were with us for about a year and a half and their wasn't a dry eye in the house when they got adopted together. It was amazing to see.

As I have a blind/deaf dog and foster for 2 rescues, if any of my fosters were to bond with my dog, you better believe I'll be adopting that foster.
