Senior dogs are often overlooked in shelters. But senior and blind? Forget it. This 7-year-old Malinois thought he'd never find a family to love him.

Boss was found as a stray in the streets of Poland. Though blind, he was very trusting of his rescuers. It was clear he had been a pet before.

Isolated and lonely

Life in the shelter proved to be very difficult for Boss. He would often find himself tripping over various obstacles, including other shelter dogs. For his safety, staff had to start isolating him. But that just made Boss feel more and more lonely.

Sylwia, a kind soul working at the shelter, could see that Boss' chances of getting out of his prison were slim. But she was determined to help him. So, she got in contact with a couple from Germany, Sigrid and Thomas, who had previously adopted a 14-year-old female from the shelter. The couple now owned two senior dogs and were looking for another companion.

Head over heels

If Boss had the use of his eyes, then you could say it was love at first sight, but we guess it was love at first sniff for this one. When Boss met the dog-loving couple, all parties immediately fell in love.

Now Boss lives in a warm home, being cared for every day by his loving humans and…two best friends!
