Duffy the Irish terrier struggled with numerous health problems, but in this YouTube poster Benjamin May still chose to give the sweet rescue dog a forever home. Duffy lost his eyesight due to complications from diabetes, but he qualified for surgery and is able to see again!

Watch this touching video from 2014 to see the curly-haired terrier emerge from the vet’s operating room into the loving arms of his family members. A round of cheering tells us the surgery was a success, and though Duffy is wearing an e-collar to protect his eyes, his wagging tail shows that he’s in good spirits. Sure, any dog could recognize his family by smell alone, but now he can finally see their smiling faces.

Some might hesitate to adopt a dog who struggles with health issues, but Duffy’s relationship with his family proves that he’s just as loyal, joyful, and loving as any other dog can be.
