Meet handsome longhair 'Simon,' and his new forever human Lizzie Katz, who hail from Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Simon has had a tough life - he ended up on the euthanasia list at a crowded Indiana shelter, and was then shipped to a shelter in New Hampshire with better prospects. He was adopted in 2008 after a few weeks in the new shelter, but was returned last week, when a toddler in his household was scaring him.
Third times a charm as they say, and it looks as though Simon has finally found his perfect match: his new human is studying occupational therapy and "is used to adjusting for the needs of those challenged with disabilities."
Miss Katz said "He already knows where anything is... you would never guess he is blind. He's the best dog in the world."
