The eight-month old puppies that have been melting hearts since a picture of them embracing was posted on the web are being adopted.
Jeffrey, who is blind, and his brother Jermaine will head to their new home together on Monday.
The pups, believed to be lab-pit mixes, were found on a Philadelphia street in October and were taken in by Operation Ava, a no-kill rescue organization in Philadelphia.
“The unconditional love and devotion these two dogs show is positively inspirational,” wrote an SPCA spokesperson on the group’s Facebook page.
What’s even more inspirational is the fact that Jermaine has dedicated his life to being his brother’s seeing eye dog.
Ray Little, Director of Life Saving at Operation Ava said:
“I think this is a little bit extraordinary in my experience because they’re so careful with one another and play together so well. Jeffrey really does try to maintain contact with Jermaine, especially when he’s in an unfamiliar environment. As soon as he gets familiar with a new place, then he becomes a little bit more independent. But it’s amazing how they try to maintain contact with each other.”
