Martin is a bulldog puppy that’s
about three and a half months old. He was surrendered to
us because he’s blind. And Martin doesn’t really realize
he’s blind I don’t think, because he’s so confident. He goes into the world as
if he can just see, and if he bumps into something
he bumps into something, and then he just carries on. And he’s so cute that we knew that we
would find a home. The next step for Martin is that he’s
going to be flying to Washington, D.C. with one of our fosters, Jaimie. – We made it to the airport. Good boy, Martin. – And then he’ll get picked up by
his adopters, Jessica and Ryan. Having adopted a dog to them before, I knew that they’d be able to give them
the daily care and commitment. So it wasn’t really a difficult choice. – Franklin and Kennedy are a great pair. But Franklin is ten, so he can’t play as
rough as he would like with Kennedy. And she’s always just
looking for a playmate. So Ryan and I were just like, “You know, this is a circus already.
Let’s add another one.” And that will just give
Kennedy a run for her money. – You did it! You made it all the way here. You did it. You did such a good job. It’s going to be the most magical
moment. Are you ready? – Oh my goodness. – Go get your mommy. – Hey. Mister. Mister. Hi! Oh, hi. – It was just like clear as day. As soon as I — As soon as he hit the ground I was like,
oh my gosh, that’s a Kerrigan. – You forgot you can’t see. Because you’re acting
like you can see me. – Bye Martin. We’ll see you
soon, buddy. I love you. You have amazing adventures. – We are excited for him to
get to know his new home. Oh, much warmer in here, huh? Yes. I was online looking, okay, how
to train a blind dog, you know? Luckily, a lot of it’s like,
“You’ve got to babyproof.” We’ve done that with our nine
month old, so we’re good to go. Come this way. This is the main room. He didn’t hit anything. He just
really trusts his nose, which is cool. Good boy. Come here. Oh, you’re stretching. Oh, you found the toys. [Laughing] Yep, that’s where all the toys are. Good job. And then he found Frank. And they just hung out. It was so easy. Kennedy is a bull in a china shop. But the kindest bull. She just wants to play and
she wants to be loved. Gentle, gentle.
Gentle, gentle. Martin met Lincoln. Lincoln loves dogs. Loves. And she was mesmerized. Whoop, kisses. I thought maybe Martin would
be a little bit too jumpy or, you know, because she’s
just crawling and she’s grabbing. But from that first meeting it was
actually better than I even imagined. I just think teaching her that, yeah, blind dog, super normal.
Look at all the things he can do. Nothing holds him back. I think that’s just a powerful
message to teach your kid. We are headed to our vet to
get a general wellness visit. – Hello Martin!
– Oh my goodness. – It’s very nice to meet you, Martin. – Kenny!
– Kennedy, what are you doing? – Oh! [Laughing] – Are they talking?
Maybe that’s what this is. – Aw. – Check-ups were great. Martin, you know, healthy. Good range of motion in
the back legs. No cleft palate. He’s the way a puppy should be. – Hey buddy.
– Hey dude. I was really excited
driving home today, to actually get to
see Martin in person. Oh my god, he’s so cute. – He gave Lincoln a kiss. He’s just going to sniff all over you. – You are so sweet. When I saw how confident Jessica
was with it, I had no trepidation. I mean, she has no fear and no
anxiety about taking on any dog. And I know if anyone can provide a loving,
great home for a dog, it’s my wife. – I’m just so excited to see
where Martin grows and develops. What kind of dog he turns into
being led by Franklin and Kennedy.
