Blind Dogs Rule!


These are blind and visually impaired dogs that are living in homes, but their owners can no longer keep them. These dogs are with their owners, and are not in BDRA foster homes. We do our best to screen these dogs, but make no guarantees regarding their temperament.



PLEASE NOTE: We are posting these dogs in hopes to find them new homes, not to humiliate or "bash" the current owners of these dogs. Please do not try to get in touch with the person listed under a dog's "Contact Information" if you are going to say hurtful or judgmental things. Please respect our rescue and the work we are trying to do in order to give these dogs a second chance at life.



If you have any questions about these dogs, email:

Name: Molly

Sex: Female (altered)

Breed: Doxie/spaniel/terrier mix?

Age: 10 years approximately

Location: Tunnel Hill, GA

 

Vet Info: Molly was spayed 2/28/12 and also had a dental. She received her rabies vaccine on 5/28/12, but the vet's office has no record of her receiving any other vaccines. Molly has gone through the slow kill method of heartworm treatment and is on prevention now. She weighs 25 pounds.

 

Owner Info: Molly was pulled from a kill shelter in December to save her life. She is missing an eye, but that happened before she ended up in the shelter, and her owner doesn't know how it happened. Molly's owner is over her limit on dogs she's allowed to have and she's hoping to find Molly rescue/a new home as soon as possible. She says that Molly is a great dog and she deserves to be in her own home where she can be spoiled rotten and be the only princess!! Molly is an outdoor dog with a fenced yard, she is housebroken and leash trained. She is also great crated and in the house. She is good with both men and women and has never bitten or snapped at anyone. Molly does not get along with other dogs, mainly ones that are larger. Molly's owner has other pets as well, so it has been hard for Molly. Molly is a senior, but she is very sassy and fiesty and likes to "talk" to you. Her owner thought she was about 6 when she got her. She says that Molly is a great companion animal for people, just not other dogs. She has been fussy with the cats too, when they get on the side she can't see. She thinks it's a defense mechanism then.


Updates:


6/15/14 - Molly continues to need a new home.  She is now living on the deck; she can't be with the other dogs because she does not get along with them.  She needs to be the only dog!

*************************************************

Molly should be the only dog in her forever home.  Please consider Molly!  She needs a home right now!
****************************************************************************************************

Name: Khen
Age: 11 years old
Breed: Lethal White Aussie
Sex: Male (confirmed neutered)
Location: Young, AZ
 
Vet info: Khen is confirmed neutered and is up to date on vaccines. He is heartworm negative. Khen weighs 78 pounds.
 
Owner Info: Khen's sanctuary has closed and he is in desperate need of placement. He is an outdoor dog with a fenced yard, he is not yet housebroken, but is leash trained. He is a nervous dog, but he is good with both men and women, and he is in good health. He can be food aggressive and human aggressive, but he is progressing!!  He went from not be able to be petted to now accepting pets with a calm person. He is responding well to walking on a leash now and wasn't a short time ago.  Khen is looking for a very special person to work with him and understand his needs.  His owner writes, "Khen is making good progress w some extra volunteer help. He is walking on a leash and he can be pet!! He can change his behaviors with the right amount of care & love. Please consider helping find a home asap!"
 
From his original post so you can see the progress Khen has made:
Khen is a beautiful Lethal White Aussie, born blind and deaf. Please help!!! Khen is in urgent need of a special Angel either directly or thru a rescue that will take his special needs and temperament into consideration when working with him! He was born blind and deaf. He is quite neurotic. He barks at the ground constantly. He can be human aggressive if one touches around his head. He is food aggressive. Will walk on a leash when one can get the leash on him.

Every dog deserves a chance to belong to a loving family, we want Khen to get that chance! Please help!!!

Update 6/18/14: Poor Khen is still waiting - he has been waiting for over a year!!! Such a beautiful boy. He needs someone who has the time to spend with him. 

Update 4/14/14:  Khen is still patiently waiting for his very own forever home!

Name: Shiloh
Age: DOB 9/2008 (5 years old)
Sex: Female (confirmed spayed)
Breed: Heeler / Pit Bull Mix
Location: North Central Arkansas (near Missouri border)



Vet Info: Shiloh is confirmed spayed. She is next due for her rabies vaccine on 4/18/14, and she received her distemper, parvo, and bordetella vaccines on 8/27/13. Shiloh has not had a recent heartworm test. She weighs about 50 pounds. 



Owner Info: Shiloh is a beautiful girl who was shot in the face and left blind. She was rescued by her current owner who is unable to keep her due to her other dogs, her work schedule (she works long hours), and finances, and so she is looking for rescue or adoption for sweet Shiloh! Her owner writes, "All of this is very unfair to her! I really want to see her in a good forever home."

Shiloh is an indoor dog confined to one area of the house, she is housebroken and leash trained. Shiloh is a smart girl and knows many commands, including sit, down, leave it, step, easy, wait, stay, and kennel up. She adapts well to new situations, and her owner says that she's very intelligent! Previously, she was a hog hunting dog. Shiloh is good with men, women, and teenagers.

Shiloh can be possessive with toys, treats, or food and has snapped. She will defend herself if another dog is aggressive towards her, but she has never bitten people, including any of the children she has been around. We asked for more detail about how she is with other dogs, and her owner wrote, "I am hesitant to say she gets along with dogs. She gets along with my lab but she honestly doesn't get along with all dogs. It will depend on the dog and if the people are experienced with intelligent dominant breeds. I will continue to foster her as long as needed. I just really want & need to find her a home."

Her owner also writes, "I just want her to have a good home. She is a sweetheart and just wants to climb in your lap and be loved. I can't keep her, I don't have the time or finances to take on another dog."


Update 6/15/14:  Shiloh still needs a new home!  Her owner wrote today: she is doing well. I have started calling her the "Velcro dog" - she is either stuck to my side or next to my chocolate lab. Usually they are both stuck to me! 


She sounds like such a nice dog!!!  


Update 4/14/14:  Shiloh is still looking for her forever home!  Her owner believes that Shiloh will be OK with other dogs if the people know how to gently correct and the other dog isn't aggressive.  Shiloh has now become friends with the little dog in the home!

Owner Info:  Poochie is a beautiful girl who is blind in her right eye.  She was surrendered to her current rescue by a family who did not have time for her.  The family bought her from a flea market when she was 6 weeks old.  They had her on Craig's List and were going to take her to a shelter and her current rescue could not let that happen.  Her current rescue is a smaller-sized rescue and they are hoping for adoption or placement with a more experienced rescue so Poochie can get the training she needs.  They write, "She is a sweet dog and just needs some training by someone familiar with the breed".  Poochie is an outdoor dog with a fenced yard and is housebroken but not leash trained.  She is good with people of all ages and both male and female dogs.  She is not possessive of toys, treats, or food and has never shown any aggression.  Her current rescue writes, "We are currently treating Poochie for tapes, hooks, and coccidia. besides that- she looks good!"

Update 6/18/14: Poochie is still doing well and still needs a new home! Her owner wrote: Poochie Patty is fine and still waiting for her forever home!! She has other doggies to paly with and she loves playing in the water! She does not care for other dogs at feeding time but that is the only time she has an attitude.


Update 4/14/14:  Poochie is now called Patty, and she's still hoping for her very own forever home!

Name: Scar
Age: Approximately 2 years old
Breed: Hanging Tree Cow Dog
Sex: Male (confirmed neutered)
Location: Hornell, NY area
 
Vet Info:  Scar is confirmed neutered and up to date on vaccines.  He is next due for the rabies vaccine in March, 2016, and for the distemper vaccine in March of 2014.  He has not been recently heartworm tested.  Scar weighs about 60 pounds.
 
Owner Info:  Scar lives on a working farm and his owner says that it is getting dangerous for him as he still tries to work the cattle.  He also runs into the machinery, and she is afraid he is going to hurt himself.  She has asked everyone she knows, but she's been unable to find a new home for Scar.  Scar is an outdoor dog without restrictions, he is housebroken and leash trained.  He knows "come" and "crate".  Scar is good with women and other dogs, and his owner wrote, "he is good with men just doesn't trust them he listens to my boyfriend but isn't 'friendly' with him", and she says he doesn't seem to mind the cat.   He does chase the cows, pigs, and goat.  Scar has never bitten or snapped and is not possessive of toys, treats, or food.  Scar came from an abusive home and may be slow to warm up.  His owner says, "He adjusts once he trusts someone he came from an abusive home before us so he really needs a person to trust."  He can see movement and may see objects clearly, but his pupils stay dilated and he will run into you if you are standing still.  Scar is missing part of his lip but this doesn't affect him at all.  She just cleans his teeth off for him.  Other than that, she says that he is in great health!

His owner adds, "He is a sweetheart. Once he trusts you he wants to be with you and play. He loves my 3 yr old son. He is good in the house but i have not had him in alot. Once he gets used to a situation and a place he is really good. I love him I just dont want to see him get hurt. He needs more time then i can give him."

Update 4/14/14:  Scar is doing well and is still in need of a new home!  He loves children!

Name:  Polly
Age:  3 years (estimated)
Breed:  Bulldog Mix
Sex:  Female (confirmed spayed)
Location: Palmdale, CA
Vet Info:  Polly is confirmed spayed and up to date on vaccines.  She is next due for her rabies, dhpp, and bordetella vaccines in February, 2015.  She has not been recently heartworm tested.  Polly weighs about 61 pounds.
Owner Info:  Polly is a beautiful and sweet girl who was rescued from a sanctuary that had to close.  She is now very much hoping for a home of her own!  

Polly is completely blind due to cataracts. She is an outdoor dog with a fenced yard, she is housebroken and leash trained. Polly is a smart girl, and in just a few days, she's learned the command stop! Polly is good with men, women and teenagers, but due to her size, she would not be recommended to a home with younger children.  She is not possessive of toys, treats, or food.  

Polly's caregiver has been told by the sanctuary that she does not like cats and her caregiver keeps her away from her other dogs as she's afraid there may be a misunderstanding due to Polly's blindness.  Her caregiver writes, "Considering that Polly is blind I prefer not putting her together with my dogs, she has been with my dogs gate to gate, and there is not aggression, but my dogs are territorial.  I have taken her on walks down the block and to parks and she has not shown aggression."  Other than her blindness, we're told she is very healthy, but overweight.  Her caregiver says that she's a very loving dog and deserves a home of her own! 
  
And here's an update from her caregiver!   

Update 6/15/14:  Sweet Polly is still looking for a new home!  She is doing very well and has lots of love to share!  
Update 4/14/14:  Polly is still very sweet!  She is still waiting for her new home!

Daisy is a lovely girl who was rescued by a Good Samaritan from a dump.  She was very thin, diagnosed with tick fever and worms, was having seizures, and is completely blind.  There was also evidence of abuse.  Daisy is feeling much better and is gaining weight and her Good Samaritan is hoping Daisy can find rescue or her forever home!   
Name:  Daisy
Age:  9 months - 1 year (estimated)
Breed:  Pit Bull
Sex:  Female (not spayed)

Owner Info:  Daisy is a lovely girl who was rescued by a Good Samaritan from a dump.  She was very thin, diagnosed with tick fever and worms, was having seizures, and is completely blind.  There was also evidence of abuse.  Daisy is feeling much better and is gaining weight and her Good Samaritan is hoping Daisy can find rescue or her forever home!   Her caregiver writes, "We wanted to get her well and find a good home for her, since we already have 4 dogs.. rescued that we love. 

She is so beautiful, obedient, kennel trained and sits for you. As of now, she has grown more and has gained almost 15lbs in 3-4 wks. She no longer has seizures..extremely playful..and you could swear she can almost see her way around..the doctor checked and is not sure if she is fixed.She is extremely healthy now, except for the blindness..and so sweet. She stays in the kitchen pretty well.. and plays outside in the fenced in yard.  Daisy appears very healthy presently after treatment of Erlichia. However, the Doctor states that it will always be in her system and may or may not need treatment as symptoms arise again."  Daisy is an outdoor dog with a fenced yard, she is housebroken and leash trained.  She's a smart girl and knows many commands, including Stay Down, Sit, No, Potty Outside, Stop, and House (she'll go inter her kennel).  She is good with both men and women, but they keep her separated from their other dogs due to her health.  She can be possessive with toys, treats, or food, but she has never bitten or snapped.  

Her caregiver gave us more details:  "We have not exposed her for a while to the other dogs due to the illnesses. However we have 2 Maltese dogs that she is fine around but she doesn't always know where they are and trips over them sometimes. Our older bigger pitbulls are more skeptical as we introduced her because she plays like a puppy and sometimes that's a bit much, but in no wise is she aggressive. She doesn't bite and rarely has ever barked. We have only had her for a month, but she is responding well to training commands and treats and I'm sure she can be trained to be around other dogs successfully without being so jumpy. Her play is just basically hopping and jumping and using her paws."  They add that, "she is smart and has picked up so many commands, playing with a rope toy, running in the yard, following us, knows the run of her area and the yard.. is very affectionate!"

Her caregiver describes her eyes as a glowing green except when in the sun, then they constrict and her beautiful brown eyes can be seen.  She does bump into things, but can follow sound.  

They tell us that Daisy is a great and lovable dog and they will miss her when she finds her new home!

Update 6/15/14
The OS Team heard from Daisy's owner today.   Daisy still needs a home! She wrote:

I have had several people call about her and one of them took her to their firm. But without a fence it wasn't working out, so she still needs a home. I can't have her fixed at the moment because since she has come out of heat she is experiencing false pregnancy symptoms. She is a great dog though. Obedient, sits and gives paw 
-
very sweet.
 
 

Update 4/15/14: Daisy is still looking for rescue!

Owner Info: Bo came from a kill shelter in North Carolina, and has been with a rescue since December, and is currently being fostered. The rescue will be closing soon, and Bo needs a new home. Bo is about 6 to 7 years old, and weighs 70 pounds. He is not yet neutered. He is reportedly up to date on his rabies and is reportedly heartworm negative. He has cataracts and is completely blind. He is housebroken, although tends to mark in the house, and is leash trained, although pulls some on the leash. He also tends to jump up on people, but his current foster mom is working on this. He is an outgoing dog who is good with people of all ages but must be the only pet in the house. The current foster mom said Bo was fine with dogs in his other foster home, but he has bitten both of her dogs, and she had to use all of her weight to pull him off one of her dogs, and she said he would have done serious harm if she had not intervened. She also said: "Bo will settle down nicely in his crate after a walk. He is a good dog, and just wants to be petted all day."

Name:   Maxx

Age:  16 months     

Sex:    male (neutered)   

Breed:    German Shepherd Mix

Location:  Western CT


Vet Info: Maxx is up to date on shots. He is neutered. He is HW negative. He weighs 80 lbs. He is blind, due to possible glaucoma or uveitis. Maxx's owner states, “he has one eye that continues to be free of any glaucoma, however we are providing two separate eye drops to both of his eyes to impede any possible deterioration.”


Owner Info: Maxx is a blind dog whose owners are trying to re-home him because he lives with an older dog who has become aggressive towards him and his owners want to ensure his long-term health and safety. Maxx has been microchipped. According to the owners, he is a German Shepherd mix. Maxx is an indoor dog who has been confined to one area of the house. He is housebroken but not leash-trained, and knows the commands, sit, stay, off, and shake. He is described as outgoing and good with men, women, and teenagers, and male and female dogs. He has never had any interaction with cats or other small animals or young children. He is not possessive of toys, treats, or food and has never bitten or snapped at anyone.His pwner says Maxx adapts very well to new surroundings and "He is shockingly not shy or timid in any manner no matter where we go."


Maxx's owners have two other dogs, a 3 year old pit beagle mix who is “calm and interacts well with Maxx” and a 4 year old Lab mix, who is “aggressive to both dogs.” Maxx was bitten by the aggressive dog last year and had to undergo spinal surgery, which he has now fully recovered from. The owners are now trying to re-home the aggressive dog as well, but without success so far. The owner writes, “Maxx deserves a safe and loving home where someone can be with him in a more quality manner. My spouse and I have big hearts and believed that our home was a great place to rescue Maxx when he was a puppy when no one else wanted him. We never thought that our lab would cause so much angst in the house and cause us to have to make such a decision but we are thinking of Maxx safety and want to be sure he does not get hurt. We've tried training but cannot allow them to interact any longer.”

6/20/14 update: Moochie is doing well and still needs a new home!!

5/25 update: Moochie has been moved from the neighbor's and is now staying with a friend of the person who found him, but they are unable to keep him and it's not known how long he can stay.  Moochie's good samaritan says he's a very sweet boy!  He loves people and his tail wags every time he hears voices!  He needs his eyes cleaned every day, and also needs daily eye drops.  She tells us he has some sight now as he's no longer bumping into things like he was before! He also has a skin condition that she believes is fungal, and she gives him a weekly bath which seems to be helping.  He's a very good boy!  She tells us he also gets along well with other dogs.

5/2/14 update: Moochie is now urgent!  He is trying to dig out of the neighbor’s home where he is staying.  They are trying to keep ahead of the digging but his good samaritan is very afraid that Moochie will end up loose and be lost again or hurt. 

Sweet Moochie was found in a ditch on 4/24 in an empty field by a good samaritan who is not able to keep him.  She is very much hoping for rescue for Moochie!  

Name:  Moochie
Age:  10 or 12 years (estimated)
Breed:  Shih Tzu?
Sex:  Male (not neutered)
Location:  Miami, FL

Vet Info:   Moochie has not been vetted.  He weighs about 20 pounds.

Owner Info:  Sweet Moochie was found in a ditch on 4/24 in an empty field by a good samaritan who is not able to keep him.  She is very much hoping for rescue for Moochie!  He is an outdoor dog and does not appear to be housebroken.  She wrote that his paws seem to have been burned and are painful for him to walk on, and he seems to be unable to close his eyes.   He does appear to see shadows but keeps bumping into things.  She checked that he is possessive of food, but has never bitten or snapped since he's been with her.    She says he's very well natured and a very happy boy!  He will even follow voices!  

Please read his caregiver's heartfelt email below:  
"hello i will tell you the story about Moochie! I found him wondering around in an empty field yesterday! He was hiding in a ditch by the time i got to him! Every time i would approach him he was very scared . Thats how i knew that he was blind! I fed him and he started to trust me more and more with each minute! I managed to put the leash around his neck and took him over to my neighbors house! i have 3 dogs  and they would not tolerate him there. I realized that something was wrong with his little paws cause he could barely walk without shaking with every step he took. i gave him a flea and tick bath and cleaned his dry crusty and puss filled eyes! He has a very good nature. He is wagging his tail at all times. His paws look like they have been burned but i am not sure! He appears to be an older male! I think that he is not able to close his eyes all the way! We named him moochie! Cause he likes to give kisses! LOl"

Name:  He is now known as Big Brother
Age:  approx. 6 weeks
Breed:  possible red heeler mix
Sex:  Male (unaltered)
Location:  San Antonio, Texas area
  
Vet Info:  The puppy, now known as Big Brother by the staff at the vet clinic, has been at the clinic for about three weeks, along with his five siblings. He is suspected to be partially blind, but he is too young to fully evaluate. The vet suspects significant hearing loss as well. He has not yet been heartworm tested but he will be given preventative at 6 weeks of age.

UPDATE: He received has his first vaccinations! 

Owner Info:  A litter of puppies, possibly red heeler mix, was abandoned at a vet clinic. After de-worming, several of them had seizures due to the heavy worm burden. Since that time, Big Brother has not regained his sight and also has partial to complete hearing loss. The staff are going to begin to find homes for his siblings this weekend. They really want to find a good home for this pup where he can be cared for by someone knowledgeable about his impairments, otherwise he may be euthanized.

Update 6/15/14: Shorty is still in need! 


Shorty's owner wanted to take him to a shelter, but a rescue stepped in and placed him in one of their foster homes. However, they have not had much interest in this handsome and sweet boy, so they have reached out to the Blind Dog Rescue to help spread the word about Shorty, who needs a home!


Name:  Shorty

Age:  10 years
Sex:  Male/neutered
Breed:  Poodle
Location:  near Savannah, Georgia

Vet Info: Shorty is neutered and up to date on his rabies, distemper and bordetella. He is heartworm negative. He has bilateral cataracts but otherwise is healthy. He weighed 8 and a half pounds at his last vet visit in February 2014. 

Owner Info: A rescue got Shorty several months ago from an owner who was about to take him to a shelter. The owner could no longer care for him. Shorty is an indoor dog who is housebroken and leash-trained. He follows the commands to sit and to come. He is good with people of all ages, but is nervous around dogs he does not know. The rescue wrote: "I think he would be ok once he got to know other dogs. In his foster home now he gets along with their dog but it has taken a while. He prefers people to other dogs. He is not aggressive, but may growl at something he is not sure about. I have been around him at the events and he just loves to be held and it doesn't matter who - so he is great around people."

6/15/14 Update: We just got an update on sweet Popeye, who still is in need of a forever home. Here is the update:

Popeye is still doing great! Due to the neurological damage this poor boy has suffered along with his heartworms, neutering this boy has been a challenge. Luckily, we don't have any un-spayed females here, but we are hoping that with his neutering he might calm down a bit. Even with everything this boy has endured, he is still such a sweetheart that just loves to be cuddled.


-----


Popeye is a very lucky dog - in late October/early November, he was in the middle of the road with an eye popping out, starving, covered in fleas, and a wonderful person picked him up and took him right away to get emergency vet care, and she has been taking care of him since. However, she is now in the final months of her lease, and Popeye needs a new home!!!


Name:    Popeye

Age:       3 to 4 years

Sex:       Male (not yet neutered)

Breed:    American Staffordshire Terrier

Location: Central North Carolina area

Vet Info: Popeye had a rabies shot on 11/3/13 but has not had any others yet. He has not been neutered. He is heartworm positive and is being treated using the slow kill method. One eye has been removed and the other has little sight, if any. He has gained weight - from 43 pounds to 54.2 pounds. The vet clinic said that Popeye "is really sweet and has the best demeanor."


Owner Info: The owner wrote: We found Popeye in the middle of the road with one eye popping out of his head, starving, covered in fleas. He was a horrible sight, so we took him to the emergency vet. The vet informed us that he was most likely used as a bait dog in dog fighting. His eye was removed and the damage to his remaining eye has left him completely blind. He has put on some weight and is healthy now, so we feel it is now time to find him a permanent home." The owner found the dog in late October/early November 2013. Popeye is an indoor dog who is house trained and leash trained. He follows the commands to "come" and "step." He is good with people of all ages, good with cats, and good with female dogs. He does not get along well with larger, male dogs who have not been neutered - he will growl and bark. Popeye has never bitten or snapped. Once Popeye gains some more weight, he will proceed further with the HW treatment plus get the distemper vaccine and be neutered. Popeye has a FB page: https://www.facebook.com/#!/PopeyeNeedsLove The FB page says that the owners are in the final months of their current lease, so need to rehome Popeye soon!

Jacob is a young bulldog who is currently in rescue. Because of his disabilities, they don't believe it is a safe situation for him and are actively looking to place him in a forever home. Details have been updated - please see below.


Name:    Jacob

Age:       1 year (DOB 3/23/2013)

Sex:       Male (neutered)

Breed:    American Bulldog

Location: northwestern Pennsylvania

Vet Info: Jacob is confirmed neutered and weighs around 60 pounds. He is deaf and blind in one eye. He is current with all vaccinations and microchipped. There were no cataracts and he is otherwise healthy. He tested heartworm negative.


Owner Info: Jacob has been in his current rescue for about 4 months. He was rescued from a shelter. His caretaker writes, "We do not feel comfortable keeping him at our rescue since we already have a blind dog, an injured dog, and an aggressive dog on premises. We don't feel this is a safe situation for him to be in." Jacob is an indoor dog with run of the house, and is housebroken and leash-trained. He "graduated" from formal obedience training at PetSmart where he learned hand signals for basic commands and he knows 'sit' and 'down.' He is outgoing and gets along with men, women, and kids, as well as cats. He has never shown aggression toward anyone. He was in a long-term foster home but the foster family had to relocate and he was returned. Jacob's caretaker writes, "Overall Jacob is a healthy, normal dog other then his eye and hearing."

Jacob has his own Facebook page too! Read more about him and see more pictures at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Jacobs-Tail/589174371167280

Lucy is a very beautiful senior Great Dane who needs someone kind and patient and loving to give her a new home!

Name:    Lucy

Age:     10 years  

Sex:      female/spayed

Breed:   Great Dane

Location:  near Columbus, Ohio


Vet Info: Lucy is up to date on her shots. She is spayed and heartworm negative. She is healthy and blind (the vet is not sure of the reason for her blindness). She can't see well so is snappy but is mostly a "typical Great Dane." 


Owner Info: The owners got Lucy three years ago from their granddaughter. The granddaughter rescued Lucy and kept her for a while, but has moved to a place that does not allow dogs. The current owners are an older couple and now are not able to care for such a large dog. Lucy weighs 110 pounds and is ten years old. Lucy is an indoor dog who is housebroken and leash trained. She knows the following commands: rest, sit, stay and here. She is nervous and has nipped at one of the owners who reached down to pet her. She also bit one of the owners when she was trying to get a harness on her. The owner wrote the following about Lucy: "She needs to be with someone kind and patient. She was very dependent on my granddaughter and it took her a bit to transfer to me. She mainly follows me around, sort of like having a two year old in the house except when she is asleep (which is a lot of the time). When I take her outside she just sticks by me. The only time she has been off our property was when she was tracking me (I had left her in the house and gone to a neighbor's, and then my husband let her out). Sometimes I feel like I have to stay around so that she eats or pees or whatever as she gets anxious when she doesn't know where I am. Her favorite thing is riding in the car, and she likes to be brushed. Her annoying habits are chewing (her dog bed cover and the dog hammock in the car) and barking when she hears something like a horn or knocking on the TV. Our other dogs don't like her. I guess they are afraid because she is so big. She is not at all aggressive with them, but they growl at her. But she has a fine time playing with my sister's small corgi who is feisty and keeps on teasing her. My daughter kept her with her cat and I think Lucy never figured out that there was a cat around. Squirrels run right in front of her and she doesn't see them. So I think she could be with other animals." Lucy would be best in a home with no small children.

Age:  3 years     

Sex:   female/spayed   

Breed:   shih tzu

Location:  Alabama


Vet Info: The vet confirmed that Sugar has a spay scar. Sugar has some vision but "not much." The left eye has atrophy/scarring of the globe, probably due to an injury. She has dry eye in both eyes. 

Owner Info: Sugar is a very calm, passive, and loving little dog who was rescued 6 months ago from certain death at the local shelter by a local rescue, but the rescue does not have room to keep her. She weighs 8 pounds. She is housebroken and leash trained. She understands "do you want to go out?" She gets along well with other animals and is also good with people of all ages, including children. Her vision has been improving since the dry eye has been treated (she needs drops daily). Her current owner said she is up to date on her shots. She is precious, and looking for a new home!

Babydoll is a sweet, young beagle mix with her whole life ahead of her. She needs a new home!  Beagles make wonderful pets!!


Name:  Babydoll 

Age:   2 years    

Sex:    female/spayed   

Breed:   beagle mix

Location:  Alabama


Vet Info: Babydoll was spayed on May 20th. The vet said the owner brought in a medical history that showed Babydoll got a one year rabies shot on April 21, 2014. Babydoll has atrophy/scarring of the globe of her left eye (probably from an injury) and has normal vision in her right. 

Owner Info: Babydoll became a stray after her owner was incarcerated, and a local rescue took her in, but the rescue is out of room and so Babydoll needs a new home! She weighs 35 pounds. She gets along with all people and cats and dogs. She is housebroken and leash trained. She understands the command: go outside. It seems like Babydoll might have been mistreated in the past, as she shakes and runs whenever someone gets out a broom to sweep. She is a wonderful dog, looking for a wonderful home!

Chloe's story is very sad - her owner is terminally ill and now Chloe is living alone in a pen, and is very depressed!  

Name:  Chloe    

Age:  3 to 4 years     

Sex:    female/spayed   

Breed:   mix

Location:  Arkansas


Vet Info: The vet confirmed the spay. 

Owner Info: Chloe was originally a foster dog for the eldest member of the local humane society. The member is now 89 years old and is terminally ill due to cancer. He has 3-6 months to live. He does have a caretaker who owns dogs, but she cares nothing about his dogs. Chloe has been moved to a kennel off his property where she is alone and she is becoming depressed after being with other dogs for several years.  Chloe is a very sweet girl who loves to get as close as possible to people when they come to see her. She will nuzzle up under their chin. Chloe is partially blind after a bout with blastomycosis. She is blind in her right eye. After developing blastomycosis, she lost a lot of weight, so she is currently underweight. Also her depression is not helping the situation at all. She weighs about 30 pounds. She is not housebroken but does well on a leash without pulling, and is very obedient. She gets along with people of all ages and with dogs.  She is so lonely, and very much wants a home and love!

Chewy is an adorable Basenji whose owners have made the heartbreaking decision to re-home him because they can no longer meet his needs. They feel that Chewy needs a home with a fenced yard so he can have freedom to exercise and play outdoors.

 

Name:    Chewy

Age:       11 years

Sex:       Male (neutered)

Breed:    Basenji

Location:  Charlotte, NC


Vet Info: Chewy is confirmed neutered and weighs 32 pounds. He is completely blind and partially deaf. He is heartworm negative. He is current with all vaccinations and microchipped. He is on Soloxine for his thyroid.

 

Owner InfoChewy is an adorable Basenji whose owners have decided to re-home him because they can no longer meet his needs. Chewy suffers from hypothyroidism and needs constant access to water and the outdoors so he can relieve himself. Chewy’s owner works very long hours and is not able to take him outside every couple of hours. They feel that Chewy needs a home with a fenced yard due to his urinary incontinence so he can have freedom to exercise and play outdoors.

 

Chewy has been with his owners almost his whole life. He is an indoor dog confined to one area of the house; he is housebroken and leash-trained. Chewy’s owner described him as good with men, women, and teenagers, as well as cats and female dogs. He said since losing his eyesight within the past two months, he has been very confused. He has nipped at a friend once when the friend pushed him out of his corner of the couch but it was “nothing major.” Chewy's owner also says that Chewy has extreme anxiety issues and doesn't do well in a crate.

 

Chewy’s owner says, “This will be one of the hardest things that I have had to do in my life , my wife and I love him so much but because of love we feel that finding a good home for him is the best and unselfish thing to do.”
