A partially blind Texas man met his perfect match recently when he connected with Bear, a miniature Australian shepherd puppy who was born with only one eye.
MTV News reported that Jordan Trent, 32, ended up adopting Bear, whom he renamed Shiner. Shiner was the last puppy left in his litter, and no one else wanted him.
“When my kids saw him they told me he was blind in one eye, just like I was,” Trent told Fox 5 Atlanta. “’We have to get him,’” Trent recalled his children saying.
Trent and Shiner’s meeting began making headlines after his sister Kendra posted about it on Reddit.
“Jordan has had a really good sense of humor about it the whole time,” Kendra told Fox5Atlanta.com“He made jokes about himself to make everyone else feel comfortable.”
The news station reported that Shiner is fitting in with the Trent family perfectly. The family has even made him an Instagram account that has racked up more than 6,000 followers. A photo of Trent and Shiner also has gone viral on Imgur, where it has received more than 2.7 million views.
