Two disabled dogs that were abandoned as puppies formed a close a bond when they were rescued by a California shelter, and now they've been adopted together.
Dillon, a blind 2-year-old border collie mix, was dropped off at a kennel and never picked up. Eve, a deaf Catahoula leopard dog mix with a missing eye, was found as a puppy by a postal worker on Christmas Eve.
Staff at Marley's Mutts in California were worried that the dogs' disabilities would prevent them from socializing, but the two quickly became inseparable.
When a woman came to the shelter to meet Eve this week, she realized she couldn't take one without the other and adopted Dillon as well.
