A blind Golden Retriever puppy named Ray Charles is melting hearts across the globe, thanks to his very own Facebook page.

The six-month-old pup was one of a litter of five and was taken to the vet after his owner wondered why he wasn't playing with his siblings.

A brief bio on his page reads: "I was born blind but don't feel bad for me! I can run and play and do everything else other dogs that can see do!"
