One-eyed Man Adopts One-eyed Puppy

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Texas man who lost vision in his left eye as a teen has adopted an adorable puppy who`s missing one of his own.


Jordan Trent of Georgetown, Texas, was with his family for the holidays when his wife stumbled across the mini Australian Shepard, who they`ve named Shiner Solo.

"My kids said `Hey Dad, there`s a dog that`s blind in his eye just like you,`" Trent, 32, told ABC News today. "I looked at it and it was the cutest dog in the world. He was the last of the litter. We scooped him up and brought him home."

I can understand this Texas man adopting a puppy that he could identify with, since they both share the same disability he will be sensitive to the puppy`s special needs.

I feel in love with my pooch, Mandy, the instant I saw her at the animal shelter, I said to myself   "that puppy is adorable just like me, I`m going to adopt her."

A pic featuring Trent holding the one-eyed Australian Shepherd, which his family named Shiner Solo, has racked up almost 3 million views after his sister, Kendra, posted it on Reddit.

There`s a puppy that is a perfect fit for your family waiting for you at your local animal shelter.
