When she was just 5-years-old she developed glaucoma and went blind. Because she was in pain, a few months later her eyes had to be removed.
It was a good decision, according to Harley's owner, Rita Harrell.
"When we took her eyes out it was almost like she was a new dog. She was like a puppy again," Harrell said. "She's just really special."
To share this special pup with the world she trained her at Paws2Care, a volunteer group for therapy dogs in Greenville, South Carolina. After several months Harley was ready to go to work.
Now after three years, the 10-year-old yellow Lab loves every minute of her work in nursing homes and hospitals.
"When we're getting ready to go somewhere I say, 'We're going to work,' and she jumps down the steps, runs through the yard to the truck and just sits outside truck, shaking — she can't wait to get to work," Harrell said.
Everyone loves Harley the blind therapy dog. She doesn't know she's blind, she just knows that people need her and she has a job she loves.
