This picture of Trent went hugely viral after his sister posted it to Reddit yesterday.
Trent told BuzzFeed: “They said: ‘He’s blind in one eye like you, Daddy. We have to get him!’ I wasn’t in the marketplace for a dog, but I looked at him and of course he was the cutest dog ever.”
He was the last one to have been picked up from his litter, Trent says. “No one wanted him, which was perfect.”
Trent’s wife has also set up an Instagram account for Shiner – you can follow him here!
