When Charlie, an 11-year-old Golden Retriever lost both his due to glaucoma, his caring owners decided to get him a companion — sort of like his own “seeing eye” dog.

They brought home a golden retriever puppy named Maverick on New Year’s Day

Although the two didn’t initially get along, they’ve since become best of friends— with Charlie relying on the puppy for nearly everything, from walking, playing, eating, and even using him as a pillow!

As the dogs began to get comfortable with each other, the owners told NBC Philadelphia that Maverick began to pick up on Charlie’s patterns and routines.

“When they would play, Maverick would realize that Charlie would lose the toy sometimes, so (Maverick) would pick it up and put it back in front of him to re-engage playtime,” Chelsea said. From there, the four-month-old began anticipating Charlie’s needs and helped make life easier for the senior dog however he could.

While Maverick isn’t actually trained as a service animal, it doesn’t make a difference to Charlie at all. He clearly appreciates his best friend no matter his qualifications.
