A ten-year-old Akita named Kiaya lost both of her eyes to glaucoma. But she’s not alone. Her younger male siblings Cass and Keller have become seeing eye dogs for their big sister.
The Akitas are owned by Jessica VanHusen of Waterford, Michigan.
Kiaya had to have both eyes removed after a two-year battle with glaucoma, according to a press release on the website for BluePearl Veterinary Partners. Now, the other Akitas that VanHusen owns, 8-year-old Cass and 2-year-old Keller, are always by Kiaya’s side, grooming her, lying next to her in the yard, and watching out for her while she’s eating or when they’re all in the car together.
This is definitely an inspirational story.
