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: Ellie

Sex: Female (altered)

Breed: Hound mix

Age: 9 ½ years

Location: Charlotte, NC

 

Vet/Medical Info: Ellie is spayed and heartworm negative. She received Bordatella vaccination on 12/13/2011, DHLPP and one year rabies on 12/19/2011 along with kennel cough.

 

Owner Info: Ellie is currently being fostered at Dog Days of Charlotte. She was originally pulled from Gaston County shelter and has been with them since March. They are looking for a rescue who can take her on. Ellie is an indoor dog with the run of the house, she is housebroken and leash trained. She is an outgoing girl, good with adults, dogs and small animals. She seems to adapt well to new situations. They are unsure what her eye conditions is, she sometimes runs into things and has trouble identifying where sounds are coming from, but she hasn't seen a doctor specifically for her eyes. Apart from that she is a very healthy girl.


Update 8/23/24: Miss Ellie is doing well. She is starting to show her age a bit now and our walks are a bit slower and shorter. She is still playful with my other foster dogs and loves dog toys and sleeping on the sofa. But, she is a country dog stuck in the city so if we could find the right home for her to live out her days, it would be great.


Update 6/15/14:  Miss Ellis is happy in her current foster home but would be happier in a forever home!  She has been waiting for almost two years!    


Update 4/12/14:  Ellie is doing well and is dreaming of her very own home in the country!

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 8/23/14: Khen continues to wait for a wonderful home.  Please continue to share his information!

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:  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.

------

Update 8/23/14: Polly is doing fine and still waiting for a forever home!!

-------

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!

8/26/14 - Poor Chester! A family with two little girls came to see him twice. He loved the girls and they loved him.  But the parents were worried he could not go up and down their steps (but they didn't bring him to their house to try) and they were worriedthat he might shed, so Chester continues to live in the kennel and continues to wait for a real home.  Poor Chester!  

And here is some additional information on Chester from the rescue group that has Chester right now (and remember that Chester is living in a kennel - and has been living in a kennel for over a year):

A little more background when the rescue first met Chester: Chester was a stray and in the shelter on the euth list.  At that time, he would just get upset when another dog would touch him because he could not see them - not sure if his blindness was new at that time. 

Currently: The kennel says now he has been going in the play yard with the other dogs and likes the cat - no aggression in a long time. They say he is very sweet. I think he just knows his way around there now; he knows how to go to get in and out. I think once he gets used to where he is (like when he gets a new home) he would be fine. He has never attacked anyone or another dog; he used to give a growl when they touched him.  Now he has done very well with the other dogs at the kennel.  And with the cat they have there.  He is a sweetheart! 

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

6/15/14 -- This dog continues to live in a kennel!  For over a year!   He is a beautiful boy and needs to be living in a home!  He likes both cats and dogs now!  Please share his information!

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

5/18/14 - We heard from the rescue this week and they sent some new photos (attached) wrote:  Chester has been in the Kennel for over a year. He is a great dog, 9 yrs young. We are trying hard to find him his forever home. Just thought I would share him with you again. He is no longer dog aggressive and likes cats. He is Blind.

*********************************************************
4/12/14- The OS team heard from the rescue today that has Chester and they wrote: He is doing good - he has lived at the kennel now for over a year which is so sad. But he is no longer afraid of other dogs. And he still needs a home!

A year in a kennel!  :(  Chester really does need a home!   

*********************************************************
11/26/13 - Chester is doing much better around other dogs!  The kennel says that now Chester only growls at other dogs if they growl at him.  But Chester doesn't want to spend his life in a kennel.  He wants a forever home!

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

9/6/13

8/27/14 update: Moochie is living outside and doesn't get much attention.  He is a happy boy and is still doing well, but is lonely and really, really needs a new home!

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"

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. 

Update 8/23/14: Shorty almost had a new home, but it fell through.  :(    So, he is still looking!!!

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."

Sapphire is a Yorkshire terrier who has gone blind and is having a hard time adapting. Her owner would rather see her re-homed with someone who can properly care for her in her current state than have her put down. 


Name:  Sapphire
Age:  6 years
Sex:  Female (spayed)
Breed:  Yorkshire terrier
Location:  Maryland, near Washington, DC


Vet Info: Sapphire is current with vaccines and is heartworm negative. She was diagnosed as having no vision in her left eye and slight peripheral vision in the right eye. Her vision issues are due to glaucoma. She was prescribed drops for both eyes in March. Sapphire weighs 15 pounds. 

Update 8/23/14: We heard from Sapphire's owner today, and she still is in need of a new home!


Owner Info: Sapphire is a Yorkshire terrier who has gone blind and is having a hard time adapting. She is an indoor dog with run of the house, housebroken and leash-trained. She has not had formal training but knows the commands, sit, down, and stay. She is bonded to her her owner and mostly ignores the rest of the family. She has shown aggression toward other dogs and people, especially children. The owner writes, “she snapped at my young nephew (7years old) once and the snap resulted in a scratch on my nephew's nose.” Her owner says, "Our Yorkie began going blind over 3 months ago. She is now so visually impaired that our family is unable to provide her the requisite care she needs due to her impairment. We would rather see her rehomed with someone who can properly care for her in her current state than to have her put down".

Bella is a beautiful girl, and needs a new home soon


Name:   Bella   

Age: 7 years      

Sex:   female/not spayed    

Breed:   Terrier Mix

Location:  Las Vegas NV


Vet Info:  Bella is blind, thin, diabetic, and otherwise very healthy. She has not been spayed and has not yet had a HW test.

Update 8/23/14: Bella is doing well.  Almost to normal weight and her diabetes is stabilized.  She is very lucky to have a wonderful foster home with other doggies and kitties, but they do have a full house and she does still need a forever home.

Owner Info: Bella's current owner saw that she was posted on craigslist and adopted her, but her boyfriend is allergic to her.  She has taken her to the vet and said Bella has been officially diagnosed with mild diabetes and will require insulin shots twice a day for the rest of her life. Other than being underweight, she is otherwise healthy and up to date on her shots now.  The vet could not find a spay scar.  Bella weighs 26 pounds and is 7 years old.  She is housetrained and leash trained and good with people of all ages plus dogs and cats. While she is blind, her owner said it is hard to tell as she gets around so well.  She wrote: She is very loving and grateful.  I don't think she received much love in her previous life.  She listens to command and is inquisitive.  She is mellow.  She gives happy kisses and wags her nub of a tail often.  She is a sweet girl who needs a new home!

8/30/14 Update: Popeye is doing very well.  He has fully recovered from his neuter and is ready for a forever home!!!

---

7/23/14 Update: Popeye has been neutered ! 

---

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!

Diamond is a blind and deaf chihuahua mix who was surrendered to her current owner when her previous owner got evicted from her apartment and couldn't keep her. Diamond's owner has been trying diligently to find her a home where she can be cared for the way she deserves.


Update 8/20/14:  Diamond is still looking for her forever home!

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." 


Update 8/23/14: Lucy's owner said that Lucy recently spent time with her daughter, and Lucy got along great with the kittens that were there! Also, she said the vet thinks Lucy is younger than 9 or 10 years old.


Beautiful Lucy still needs a home!  Please share her information!


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.

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. 

Update 8/25/14: Chloe has had a bit of a rough time over the past month; she redeveloped blastomycosis but she is getting the medical care she needs and is slowly improving.  She needs a loving forever home with someone who can give her the love and attention can care she deserves!

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.

 

Update 8/24/14: Basenji is doing well and still is in need of a new home!  Please share his information!


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.”

8/13 Billy is a very handsome and very sweet hound mix who was found as a stray.  His caregiver believes it's likely he was abandoned because he could not hunt.  His caregiver is unable to keep him herself and would love him to have a home of his very own!  He's currently being cared for at her boarding facility.  She's tried other rescues but has had no luck.

Name:   Billy
Age:      2 or 3 years (estimated)
Breed:   Hound mix
Sex:      Male (not neutered)
Location:  Lynchburg, VA area

Vet Info:  Billy received his one-year rabies, distemper, and parvo vaccines on July 28th.  He is heartworm negative, but did test positive for ehrlichia and is on antibiotics.  He was also treated for hookworms.  Billy weighs about 23 pounds and is gaining weight - he should max out around 30 pounds.  The vet's office commented on what a sweet boy he is!

Owner Info:  Billy is a very handsome and very sweet hound mix who was found as a stray. His caregiver believes it's likely he was abandoned because he could not hunt.  His caregiver is unable to keep him herself and would love him to have a home of his very own! He's currently being cared for at her boarding facility.  She's tried other rescues but has had no luck.  No one has reported him missing.

Billy has detached retinas (no known cause) and appears completely blind, but may see shadows.  Billy is an indoor dog confined to one area of the house, he is housebroken and leash trained.  He is good with both men and women, but has not yet been around children.  He is good with other dogs and cats and his caregiver gave us more details about how he does with other dogs and cats.   "One of my employees takes him home when we are full and he has had exposure to cats when at her home. No aggression towards other animals exhibited. He gets very excited and playful when meeting other dogs. "....  "I did introduce Billy to my older male (60 lb. Retriever mix) and all went well between the two.  I hadn’t introduced him to other males at my boarding facility mostly because I was choosing those dogs who weren’t so high energy so that he wouldn’t be overwhelmed and it just happened to be females at the time.  Perhaps because he is still intact, he appeared more excited when meeting the females than my male dog!  And my male is a senior, so he wasn’t in a playful mood, and Billy didn’t feel any vibes to pursue playing with him."  

Billy is a very sweet boy, and his caregiver tells us that when he's not sure of a situation (such as a new sound), he tends to back away or freeze.  And despite being malnourished, he eats slowly and takes treats very gently.  He is not possessive of toys, treats or food and has not shown any aggression since being with his caregiver.  He appears to be crate trained and did fabulous in a crate - no barking or crying.  

Billy's caregiver wants us to know that "Billy is a sweet and docile little guy. He has blossomed already in our care, playing with toys and has enjoyed meeting new dogs. He obviously has been in the company of other dogs before. He did very well when crated and in an outdoor run, so was likely confined previously. When indoors he still needs supervision to not chew on hazardous items, like electrical cords and such, but he has responded to redirection very well."  He is a real sweetheart

Track is a gorgeous Pit Bull Mix who was found on the side of the road between the highway and the railroad tracks.  The good samaritan who found him travels and works a lot, and is unable to keep him.  She would love for him to have a family and home of his very own!

Name:  Track
Age:  Unknown
Breed:  Pit Bull Mix
Sex:  Male (not neutered)
Location:  Central South Carolina

Vet Info:  Track has not been vetted.  His weight is unknown.

Owner Info:  Track is a gorgeous Pit Bull Mix who was found on the side of the road between the highway and the railroad tracks.  The good samaritan who found him travels and works a lot, and is unable to keep him.  She has not yet been able to find him rescue or a new home.  She would love for him to have a family and home of his very own!

Track is an outdoor dog with a fenced yard, he is not housebroken or leash trained.  Track is good with both men and women and his caregiver's two cats, which he seems "to shy away from".  She has not seen him with other dogs, but says he's very sweet and loving and believes he'd be fine with other dogs.  He is not possessive of toys, treats, or food and has never shown any aggression.

Track appears to have a swollen face with some abrasions and she writes that his eyes look cloudy and he scratches at them with his paw.  He does bump into things, and when he does, he will sit and then lay down.  He does come when you talk to him and make kissing noises.  

She says Track is a very sweet and loving boy and she "wants him to have a good life with a loving family and a happy healthy life."

Aubrey's owners have relocated and are unable to take her with them.  They are very much hoping for rescue or adoption as soon as possible for sweet Aubrey!  They have another blind dog, Jimmie, who also needs rescue and was posted earlier.  While they do love each other, they are not a bonded pair.

Name:    Aubrey
Age:       12 years (estimated)
Sex:       Female (spay confirmed)
Breed:  Min Pin / Terrier Mix
Location: Huntington, WV area

Vet Info:  Aubrey is not up to date on vaccines and has not been recently heartworm tested.  She is confirmed spayed.  Aubrey weighs 12 pounds.

Owner Info:  Aubrey's owners have relocated and are unable to take her with them.  They are very much hoping for rescue or adoption as soon as possible for sweet Aubrey!  They have another blind dog, Jimmie, who also needs rescue and was posted earlier.  While they do love each other, they are not a bonded pair.  Aubrey's owners have tried other rescues and family and friends, but have not been successful.  

Aubrey is an indoor dog with run of the house.  She is good with men and women, and both male and female dogs.  Young children may frighten Aubrey and a home without children is recommended.  She has been raised with her owner's children, but they do not know how she would react to other children.

Aubrey is housebroken and leash trained.  She can be possessive of toys, treats, or food, and since she lost her sight, her owners write that she has become more "snappy", but only snaps when other dogs attempt to take her toys or bones.  She is completely blind "stemming from a dog attack that occurred a few years ago".  Other than that, they write that Aubrey is healthy and has no evident health issues.

Her owners want us to know that "Aubrey is a very sweet dog, she is older so she does like to sleep a fair amount. She does love toys and has always "gutted" them and likes to toss around the remains. She is still very playful with the other dogs that we have in our home as well as my children."

She is a beautiful girl!

Jimmie's owners have relocated and are unable to take him with them.  They are very much hoping for rescue or adoption as soon as possible for sweet Jimmie!

Name:    Jimmie
Age:       6 years
Sex:        Male (confirmed neutered)
Breed:    Chihuahua
Location:  Huntington, WV area

Vet Info:  Jimmie is not up to date on vaccines and has not been recently heartworm tested.  He is confirmed neutered.  Jimmie weighs 10 pounds.

Owner Info:  Jimmie's owners have relocated and are unable to take him with them.  They are very much hoping for rescue or adoption as soon as possible for sweet Jimmie!  They have another blind dog who also needs rescue and will be posted shortly.  They are not a bonded pair.

Jimmie is an indoor dog with run of the house, he is housebroken and leash trained.  He is good with people of all ages and both male and female dogs.  He is not possessive of toys, treats, or food and has never shown any aggression.

Jimmie is completely blind, and his owners write, "His blindness was a result of two separate dog attacks. He has adapted very well to not having his sight. Jimmie is able to go up steps, but never mastered the ability to go down them after the accident....We previously owned a dog that had a propensity to snap at other dogs. While Jimmie was younger he attempted to play with her and was bitten. Several thousands of dollars was spent to spare Jimmie."  

They also write that Jimmie appears to be an emotional eater and when not with their daughter, he tends to eat less.  

They add that Jimmie is a very sweet and loving dog and tell us, "Jimmie just wants someone to love on him and hold him." This has been a very difficult decision for them and they are heartbroken it had to be made.

Sugar is adorable and friendly!  The local rescue that has her is out of room, and so Sugar needs a new home!


Name:  Sugar 

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!

Binky is an adorable little girl who was rescued in March.  Her rescue has had two failed placements with her and could tell there was an issue.  A visit with an eye specialist determined she is completely blind.  She is with a very small rescue who has not been able to place her due to their lack of contacts and they are hoping for BDRA placement for her.  

Name:    Binky
Age:       One year
Sex:       Female (confirmed spayed)
Breed:    Spaniel mix
Location: Rock Hill, SC area

Owner Info:  Binky is an adorable little girl who was rescued in March.  Her rescue has had two failed placements with her and could tell there was an issue.  A visit with an eye specialist determined she is completely blind.  She is with a very small rescue who has not been able to place her due to their lack of contacts and they are very much hoping for BDRA placement for her.  

Binky is an outdoor dog with a fenced yard, she is not housebroken but is leash trained.  She is good with both men and women and male dogs, but isn't too sure about female dogs.  They write that she has tried to fight a female dog when the dog came into her area without a proper introduction, but neither dog was harmed.  We asked for more details about how she is with other dogs and cats, and they wrote, " Binky has met one cat and one of the failed placement homes. First she couldn't see it and then she was scared of it. According to the lady that had her she never tried to bother the cat. However, I can't guarantee that would be the case with every cat.  I introduced Binky last night to two puppies that I have (fosters) and she loved them. She wanted to play but also had a mother instinct to clean them etc. Binky is very attached to me and is a wonderful dog. She does seem to put her guard up with dogs she doesn't know. To be honest, I have just kept her away from any others just to make sure there are no more problems. So with an experienced person, she may learn to be fine with all dogs."

Binky can be somewhat skittish when approached, but when she has time to smell you, she flips over for belly rubs!  She also loves to go for walks and they tell us she needs room to run.  They add that she's a wonderful and sweet girl and they are hoping someone can help her!  "She is a wonderful sweet girl and all I want is someone to help her. I am asking you for help because I know I can't."

Bamboo is a deaf, vision-impaired Doberman pinscher who currently with rescue and is waiting for his forever home. 

Name:    Bamboo

Age:       4-5 years (approx.)

Sex:       Male (confirmed neutered)

Breed:    Doberman Pinscher

Location:  AlbuquerqueNew Mexico area


Vet Info: Bamboo is confirmed neutered and weighs 60 pounds. He is current with vaccinations and is heartworm negative. He is microchipped.  The vet’s office said he was unresponsive to sound stimuli and has some vision but only when objects are right in front of him. They were unsure as to the cause of his impairments.  They added, "he is a really sweet guy!"   

 

Owner InfoBamboo is a deaf, vision-impaired Doberman pinscher who currently with rescue and is waiting for his forever home. No one at the rescue is trained to work with a dog with his impairments and they want to find an adopter willing to go through the training he needs to live a full life. Bamboo was a stray at the local shelter. He is an outdoor dog with a fenced yard, not house-broken or leash-trained. His current foster says he “is not good in the house, he will mark, put his paws on the counters and there is no way to correct him with our limited knowledge of how to deal with a deaf dog.” However, they also note that he is smart and “he is adaptable and learns quickly” and “a full food bowl is a tool that has worked so well.” Bamboo will even sit for his dinner! Bamboo is outgoing and good with men, women, and female dogs. His foster says “he has a high prey drive with small animals” and he is not good with cats or small dogs.  

 

Bamboo’s caretaker also says, “Like most rescue groups our foster space is quite limited. As long as Bamboo is here we can not rescue other dogs that are more adoptable. At this time Bamboo is fine spending the day outside with shade and a safe place to be all day and in a crate at night. Soon the weather will not permit that situation. Everyone loves Bamboo but he is a special case and needs the love and dedication of a forever home.”
