Blind Dachshund Reunited With Guide Dog After Messy Adoption

A 6-year-old pit bull and a blind 12-year-old dachshund have been reunited after the two were briefly split during a messy adoption. 

Blue Dozer, the pit bull, and OJ were surrendered at a Richmond, Virginia, shelter on April 20 after their owner became homeless.

The shelter posted on Facebook that the pair needed to be adopted together as OJ needs Blue Dozer to guide him. 

They were adopted together last week but OJ was found wandering alone more than 100 miles away days later, The Washington Post reports.

The woman who adopted them said the shelter could keep OJ, but she wanted Blue Dozer. She eventually returned Blue Dozer, and the two reunited Wednesday. The shelter says the next owner will sign a form promising to keep them together.
