TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Humane Society of Southern Arizona has an unusual opportunity for prospective dog owners.

Milo and Dixie are 5-year-old Basset Hounds who have supported each other through tough times.

Both came to HSSA with serious medical problems. Dixie had cherry eyes, bad teeth and previous wounds. Milo suffered from advanced glaucoma and had to have both eyes removed.

While in a foster home, Dixie doted on Milo around the clock and the two were inseparable as Dixie guided Milo through the home. If separated, each would howl and cry until reunited.

Both are now healthy and happy, and Milo navigates with ease, thanks to his "guide dog."

They are both available for adoption, but the bonded pair must go together, so an adoptive home willing to take both is needed.

If you are interested in adopting Milo and Dixie, call the Humane Society of Southern Arizona at (520) 327-6088 or visit the shelter at 3450 N. Kelvin Blvd.

The shelter is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m., but after looking at the photo of Milo and Dixie, it would seem obvious that you should get there as soon as possible!
