Charlie is an 11-year-old golden retriever dog who lost his eyes to glaucoma. And although he never gave up on life, what happened produced a change in his personality. Fortunately, he found great support in his brother Maverick, a puppy who takes care of guiding and keeping him company, they are without a doubt the best friends in the world.
Thanks to Maverick, Charlie thrived again. The parents of these little dogs, Chelsea Stipe and her husband were very determined to find a life partner for their dog.

They complement each other, the energy and enthusiasm of the younger ones seem to inspire the same in the older ones.
Chelsea told The Dodo:
“Charlie is definitely more playful and has been puppy-like since Maverick’s arrival. We bought him toys and he didn’t think about playing with them. Now they are constantly playing with each other.”
Although Maverick is younger, he seems to understand what happened to Charlie and is determined to help him.
“He knows Charlie is different. Puts toys in front of him. He is very conscious, when Charlie starts to move he is aware of him. When they walk together, Maverick guides Charlie.”
Maverick also often rests with Charlie for company and safety. They are different, but they have created a very strong bond.
“It’s amazing. They’re a great combination. They’re still together.”
Charlie is living his last years very happy thanks to Maverick, who has shown that joy and happiness are yet to come on the path they are now together.
“Charlie is an old dog. We thought we could lose him at any time. But now, with Maverick, it’s like he has some energy in him, he’s found the joy of living again. If I had eyes, I know there would be a glow in them.”
Update: Charlie died on 2019
