ABC News Videos | ABC Entertainment News Glaucoma may have stolen Kiaya's eyesight, but Cass and Keller have helped give the dog her life back.
When the akita lost her eyes to the condition, her doggy siblings, also rescued akitas, stepped up to help in the sweetest way possible. They're always by her side and help her get where she wants to go.
"They were kind of bookends to her," owner Jessica VanHusen, of Waterford, Michigan, told ABC News. "They're not fiercely protective but they're always touching her. They're really respectful of her."
The veterinary ophthalmologist who removed both of Kiaya's eyes says watching the trio in action warms the heart.
