A dog's loyalty knows no boundaries, especially when it comes to it's own blood......Two stray dogs found in Philadelphia are providing a heartwarming example of this.....The Chester County SPCA posted a photo of the dogs, Jeffrey and Jermaine, embracing each other while sleeping.

The photo itself is a perfect representation of their relationship.

Jeffrey is blind......According to the SPCA, his brother, Jermaine, has dedicated his life to be his guide dog, helping him move around.

"The unconditional love and devotion these two dogs show is positively inspirational," wrote an SPCA spokesperson on the group's Facebook page.

Both dogs, approximately 8-months-old and believed to be Lab-Pit Bull mixes, were found on the streets of Philadelphia back on October 5 and taken in by Operation Ava, a no-kill animal rescue organization.

"They were obviously a little bit scared and confused," said Ray Little, the Director of Life Saving at Operation Ava.

"It was immediately apparent that Jeffrey was leaning on Jermaine and that Jermaine was making every effort to stay with his brother."

According to Little the two brothers are inseparable.

We hear a lot about leadership with dogs. Leadership is important to dogs and the vast majority of dogs do best when they feel like someone confident and in control is making responsible decisions for them.

It appears that what transpired here proves that this is true. Although this is a very common story it is unquestionably a heartbreaking one. Well done Jermaine for taking good care of your brother.
