Watch: Heartwarming video of blind dog in Egypt recognizing shelter worker goes viral

A heartwarming video showing a blind dog in Egypt recognizing the voice and scent of a rescue shelter worker’s voice has gone viral on social media.

The video was first shared by a man named “Ahmed” on Facebook sometime on Tuesday. A day later, the video was then shared by others on Twitter, which then went viral.

The man in the video can be heard calling out the name “Arafat” several times at a rescue shelter for animals before a blind dog, which appears to be of a Whippet breed commonly found in Egypt, runs up to him and plays with him.

“Blind and he has never seen me and do not know how I look, but he can feel,” Ahmed said in a Facebook post.

The exact location of the animal rescue farm could not be determined.

Stray dogs roam in almost every Cairo neighborhood — lurking in construction sites, scavenging through trash, and howling nightly atop parked cars. The government says there are around 15 million of them. They bite some 200,000 people a year, according to the World Health Organization, and spread rabies, one of the world’s most lethal diseases.
