Life is difficult for all abandoned dogs, but some have it worse than others! Today we are going to show you the amazing story of Herbie and Hilda, two dachshunds who were left out on the streets to fend off for themselves. The difficult thing about this being that Herbie is blind!
20. Herbie And Hilda
These two adorable dachshunds are called Herbie and Hilda. Even though their smiles are big and bright, life hasn’t been too good for these two dogs. But they aren’t letting that stop them from being happy.
19. Herbie Is Blind
Herbie is blind and this makes it difficult for him to survive on the streets but luckily, Hilda is always there to guide him. You won’t believe why they were thrown out on the streets.
The reason why Herbie and Hilda were abandoned is heartbreaking, as the previous owner didn’t want to care for the blind doggy. To make things even worse, the men got rid of them without giving it any second thought and threw them in a stranger’s yard.
17. Thrown Out
The two weren’t only abandoned, but they were thrown in the backyard of a man who wanted nothing to do with them. The previous owner did that because his neighbor had a reputation for rescuing dogs, but he hasn’t been working at the shelter for a long time. So what happened to the poor pups?
16. Staying Together
Even though their faith was looking grim, the two adorable doggies were keeping a big smile on their faces because they were happy to be together. Luckily, the man who found them in his backyard knew exactly what to do with them.
The man who found Herbie and Hilda used to work at a shelter that focused on rescuing abandoned animals. Even though he retired years ago, he decided to do one last good deed and called for help.
14. Calling For Help
The man called the County Dog Services shelter and they came to pick up Herbie and Hilda. However, this is not where the story ends for these two dachshunds.
13. An Impossible Task
The rescuers were determined to help Herbie and Hilda, but there was a big problem and they couldn’t do anything about it. Keep reading to find out what that problem was. It’s unbelievable…
12. Puppies With Disabilities
The problem that the rescuers had no solution for was the fact that most people don’t want to adopt puppies with disabilities. To add more, Herbie and Hilda came as a pair and the rescuers didn’t want to separate them.
11. Special People
The two dachshunds stayed at the rescue shelter for a couple of days until the unexpected happened! Two special people heard Herbie and Hilda’s story and decided to give them a loving home. Can you believe this?
10. John And Dorothy

Stories like this one are rare because not many people are willing to put it all on the line and take two dogs in their house, especially when one has a serious disability like Herbie does.
