A partially blind Texas  man met his perfect match recently when he connected with Bear, a miniature Australian shepherd puppy who was born with only one eye.

MTV News reported that Jordan Trent, 32, ended up adopting Bear, whom he renamed Shiner. Shiner was the last puppy left in his litter, and no one else wanted him.

“When my kids saw him they told me he was blind in one eye, just like I was,” Trent told Fox 5 Atlanta. “’We have to get him,’” Trent recalled his children saying.

Trent and Shiner’s meeting began making headlines after his sister Kendra posted about it on Reddit.


Thanks to a long ago lawn care-related accident in his youth — “When I was fifteen a piece of metal flew into my eye while weed eating,” Trent told MTV News — he also has no sight in his left eye.
