An Irish Terrier who had a bad case of diabetes and lost his vision was able to actually see his owner for the first time.
After stabilizing his diabetes and paying $5,000 for the surgery, Duffy’s owners were greeting with an overjoyed dog who showed us all that they’re definitely the most loyal friends we could have.
The description of the video posted to YouTube by Benjamin May tells of the struggles he faced and why he made the decision to have the surgery for his long-time friend.
“This is my Irish Terrier Duffy. He’s a rescue dog and he’s had a lot of struggles with his health,” May wrote.
“He developed diabetes and lost his eyesight. With medication we got his diabetes stable and he qualified for eye surgery to give him back his sight. Here is seeing my parents afterwards.”
“It broke my heart seeing this dog I grew up with, who I see as a very good friend…running into things, not being able to recognize me……just struggling,” May wrote on Reddit.
“It literally brings tears to my eyes every time I watch it, as much as I love it I just wish I could have been there. I’m just so thankful for my parents for taking care of him like this.
“I can only imagine what went through his mind that one day it went black…..and then suddenly he can see everyone again….. I can’t wait to get home over Christmas so my dog can see me for the first time in two years,” May wrote.
May explained just how he felt about his beloved friend.
“I know most people will that that was a waste of money but whatever. He’s happy and he makes us happy, he’s family to us, you can’t put a price on family,” May said.
