Friendship between two dogs goes viral

It's not the royal romance, but a friendship between two dogs that has caught people's attention. 

Meet the odd couple of Richmond Virginia Animal Care and Control - a 12-year-old Dachshund named OJ and a 90-pound Pitbull name Blue Dozer. 

OJ is blind and the Pitbull acts as his guide dog, CBS reports. 

"They sleep together, they eat together, they lay together, they walk together, they do everything together," says Christie Chipps Peters, direct of the animal care shelter.  

OJ follows Dozer just about everywhere, and it's a good thing they have each other, because lately life hasn't been easy. 

Last month their owner became homeless and brought the dogs to the shelter in desperation. Her plea to the shelter was to keep the two dogs together. 

The shelter posted about the dogs on Facebook and received a lot of feedback and offers of adoption. 

The dogs were adopted by someone who promised to keep them together, but just a few days later, OJ was found abandoned and alone. 

Ms Peters was distraught. 

"We promised we would keep them together and that their life would be great."

She brought OJ back to the shelter and convinced the adopter to return Dozer. Now reunited, they're living in Ms Peters' office while they wait for a new home. 

Dozens of potential owners have applied but Peters wants to make sure that they'll never be separated again.
