Blind Dog, Guide Dog Likely To Be Adopted Soon

Posted: Updated:
CHESTER COUNTY, Pa. -

 Great news from Operation Ava:

"Jeffrey and Jermaine Have a Home !!!!!!
Thank you to everyone who networked and contributed to this very happy ending! It was so fantastic hearing from across the world how much pets mean to their families. Jeffrey and Jermaine want to say thank you and please visit Operation Ava or your local shelter when you are looking to add a deserving pet to your family. Share the love!!!"
 
See MyFoxPhilly's original story below:

The two dogs, brothers for life, are still waiting for adoption almost a month after they visited "Good Day Philadelphia" but could soon find their forever home.

The two six-month-old pit-bull pups, Jermaine and Jeffrey, have a close bond. The Chester County SPCA quickly learned that. They found the pups roaming the streets.

Jermaine acts as a guide dog for his blind brother Jeffrey.

Our "Good Day" viewers got to meet them when they were on our air last month.

On Friday, the Chester County SPCA posted a photo of the brothers' bond that has gone viral on Facebook, with more than 35,000 likes, almost 80,000 comments and nearly 6,000 comments.

Operation Ava, which is caring for the dogs, says they have received adoption applications – some of them complete, and several of them are promising. They were planning to accept applications until 5 p.m. Tuesday.
