Guide Dogs, an organisation that provides ‘life-changing support, skills and dogs to people living with sight loss in the UK’, shared the story on Instagram.
“Reunited in retirement. Meet Carlo and Chips – two guide dog brothers born nearly a decade ago and living with different guide dog owners, now reunited to spend their golden years in the same local area! Fin, Chips rehomer, said ‘Chips had a great time being reunited with Carlo earlier this month and they ran around together like they were puppies again’,” the organisation wrote on Instagram.
They also added a quote from Charles, Carlo’s owner. “We reunited the brothers for the first time, they certainly seemed to recognise each other and had the best time racing around together,” Charles said. The post is complete with two images of the brothers.
The description of the pictures shared with the post reads, “Image one shows Labrador cross golden retriever guide dog brothers, Carlo (yellow) and Chips (black) sat next to each other in a grassy park. Image two shows the dogs with both their owners crouched down next to them, smiling at the camera.”
