Walter the borzoi had been diagnosed with bilateral mature, congenital cataracts when he was only ten weeks old, rendering him blind. Despite this, in other ways, he is still like other dogs, and just wants to play with other dogs. In this video, he tries to make friends while visiting a dog park.

It’s better to have a good end than to have a good start!

Walter might have a little trouble fitting in at first, but it’s not an issue for long. Fortunately, dogs  are well equipped to use their other senses to interact with each other and world around them, and even to play.

If you stand still long enough, the others might just come to you!


The other dogs are starting to say hello to Walter, and he is also going to return the favor, in that way that dogs do best, the way that uses the nose!

Did everything end out alright?

Walter is something akin to a celebrity in the dog world, what with him having his own Instagram account that showcases his own various adventures with other dogs. If this video had you worried, you can rest assured that Walter already has plenty of friends.
