Xander, a two-year-old Pug mix, ended up in an animal shelter in Oregon last year, but he was only there a few days when his outgoing, happy-go-lucky personality drew the attention of new owner Rodney Beedy.
Xander has since gone on to have a stellar career as a therapy dog, working primarily with the victims of child and spousal abuse.
The twist? Xander has no eyes and is completely blind! Still, he gets around well and loves being center of attention in crowds of children. He is drawn to comfort people whenever he hears crying. The photos of this happy dog working made us smile. Check out more of Xander's story on Viral Nova.
