Born Without Eyes, Smiley The Golden Retriever Becomes Therapy Dog For Mentally Ill And Disabled

Despite having been blind from birth and raised in a puppy mill, Smiley the golden retriever doesn’t seem to have anything to be glum about. This perpetually happy pup is so motivating, joyful and loving that he works as a therapy dog as well, spreading his joy to mentally ill and disabled patients every week.

Stacey Morrison, the photographer behind this beautiful photo session with Smiley, had this to say about him; “he bumps into things a lot. And as I quickly learned, when he’s running towards you, he doesn’t know when to stop! But otherwise he gets along just fine. In fact, as he’s going about his doggy business — sniffing, listening, frolicking, nuzzling — you forget that he has a disability.”

According to Morrison, Smiley’s owner, a professional dog trainer named Joanne, “says it’s important that he explores his surroundings on his own, using his own instincts, without people hovering over him or cringing every time he bumps into something.“
