Two dogs in California share an inseparable bond.

One is blind – the other is his guide.

Meet Isaac and Isabella.

Animal welfare workers say the two were found together wandering the streets of San Bernardino County Monday.

Isaac is a blind Husky and Isabella, his small Terrier mix friend, also serves as his seeing eye dog.

“It’s just really remarkable how she’s always trying to be aware of where Isaac’s at and you know if he’s not right behind her, she’ll stop and wait for him to catch up with her. It’s really funny and just like I’ve never seen anything like it before,” says Lindsey Riggins of Hermosa Animal Hospital.

“She keeps her eye on him at all times like a little pilot fish…. There’s a work relationship between these two and there’s a love relationship between these two and how they know what the other needs or what the other is saying is amazing. It’s like and old couple that’s been married for 60 years and they just know what’s going on with the other person,” says Dan Guss of the STAND Foundation.

Animal rescue group STAND is now looking to place the pair into a good home.
