This little pug is completely blind and doesn’t even have eyes. But you want to know what he does have? One of the biggest and most charming personalities we have ever seen. His name is Xander and he is a service dog that brings along smiles wherever he goes.
Xander, a 2 year-old pug mix, showed up at an animal shelter in Oregon last year. It only took a few days for him to be adopted.
A man named Rodney Beedy took him home once he noticed his wonderful and absolutely charming personality.
He knew that this loving little dog would make a fantastic therapy dog.
Rodney and his wife, after adopting Xander, had him officially certified as a therapy dog. You can see him comforting his new mom in the hospital in this picture.
Xander focuses on being support for victims of child and spousal abuse.
He loves rockin’ a good suit.
But most importantly, he naturally knows how to make those in need feel better.
Hearing a person crying will draw Xander to them.
He instinctively wants to help.
Xander can handle crowds of children with grace.
He also gets around very well without being able to see.
Basically, Xander is one of the best therapy dogs ever.
Nothing can phase him.
