Hello there! Charlie and Maverick here. Just a couple of happy pups. Charlie is almost 11 years old and Maverick is 4 months old. Charlie had glaucoma which led to his double enucleation (both eyes removed). Now, Maverick is here to help Charlie around and Charlie is trying to teach Maverick manners. ? definitely a work in progress.
Charlie, recently got a new playmate in the form of four-month old puppy Maverick, who has helped inject so much joy into this old dog’s life.
Watch this sweet duo play no nicely together in the clip below.
The two dogs have formed a special bond and Maverick has helped to bring out a playfulness in Charlie that he didn’t have before.
“Charlie has definitely been more playful and puppy-like since Maverick came around,” owner Chelsea Stipe told The Dodo. “We’d buy him toys and he wouldn’t think about playing with them. Now, they’re just constantly playing with each other.”
Maverick stays by his friend’s side to let him know he’s not alone and when they go for walks together, Maverick helps keep Charlie in line.
Maverick helps Charlie enjoy his golden years and gives him hope for an even happier future. The two are such a great combination.
