While some things make Jake anxious, like loud noises and not knowing where his family is, overall, he’s a pretty confident dog. He loves going for walks, cuddling with his family and getting lots of treats, and for the most part doesn’t let being blind stand in his way. Besides his cute “checking in” habit, Jake has developed some other quirks since losing his sight — like pretending he doesn’t know how to use the stairs anymore so his dad will have to carry him up and down them.
“When I take him for a walk he just waits for me to carry him up and down the stairs even though he can climb stairs,” Fernandes said. “He is the laziest dog I've ever seen.”
