FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Three blind and deaf puppies are looking for their forever home... but there's a catch. They need another dog to help them lead the way. 

The three Louisiana Catahoula Leopard dogs, are just 10 weeks old explore the world in a different way than most. 

"They've got the faculties of other dogs, except two. Sight and hearing," foster mom Edith Pendelton said. 

They can't see or hear but they can smell, feel, and love. 

"They play and act like normal puppies," foster mom Fontes Sobczak said.

They dogs, named Helen, Keller and Wanderer, get around based on touch. And although they look the same, they have the very personalities. One is bashful, another more adventurous, and one just likes to cuddle.

"She can hold her own if she's challenged, but most of the time she just prefers to be held and loved," Edith said. 

Right now they have these two foster moms to look after them. But they are looking for a very special forever family - with a catch. 

"A wonderful family that happens to have the perfect dog," Edith said. 

That's right, a dog for these dogs, to be their eyes and ears and help them get around easier. 

"A dog helping a blind puppy find its way and understand the concept of tagging along," Edith said. 

"When you see them and when you interact with them, they have such... they overcome everything every sing day," Fontes said. 

Volunteers say they are looking for a dog that maybe lost its companion or sibling and needs something to do and help these little guys. 

The dogs do not have to be adopted together because they aren't dependent on each other. 

If you know anyone or any dog that can give these pups a great forever home, head over to the Gulf Coast Humane Society in Fort Myers.
