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:

Information:


Update 2/4/2012 - Bo is still with his owners and still needing to find his forever home. Please contact them if you want to know more about Bo.

Meet Bo, a 5 year old hound mix currently living outdoors because his owners are finding it hard to take care of him. He will need help with house training and meeting other dogs. Bo is currently in Missouri and was originally found as a stray- but now needs a third chance at a happy life!!!
Bo lives outside in a pen and so needs and wants a new home so badly!  Bo is a friendly, medium sized hound dog who is neutered. He was found as a stray, and the current owner has had him for about 7 years.  He is not housebroken but has been in 4-H obedience classes!  He would need some practice to remember what he has learned.  He is good with men, women, and children but would be best as the only pet as he may fight with other dogs.  He really does love people, and loves attention.  One of his eyes is removed and he is blind in the other but his health is good.   




Status:
Bo is still in need of a home as of September, 2013


Mobe


Contact Information:

Email: OS@blinddogrescue.com
Phone BDRA: 1-877-254-6301  x4
 
Name: Mobe
Sex: Shih Tzu (altered)
Breed: Shih Tzu
Age: Unknown
Location: Palm Beach gardens, FL

Vet/Medical Info: Mobe was neutered 6/14/2008. He received DHPP and Bordetella 1 yr shots and rabies 3 yr shot 9/9/2011 and was also given Frontline, was dewormed and tested HW-. He also had a fecal test and it was negative. Vet noted bilateral ocular opacity (possibly blind) and he has possible peridontal disease and mild dental tartar. He also has a cyst on left side of hip area.

Owner Info: Mobe's owner recently saved him from Miami Dade Animal Services to avoid him being euthanized. His old owners did not want him anymore. It was indicated he had partial blindness and they put him in quarantine board. He had a cataract in one eye and hyphema probably from some blunt force in the other eye, however when this cleared up it was discovered he has cataracts in both eyes and is therefore essentially blind. They seem to be mature but they could potentially be operable to restore sight. He is healthy other than the cataracts, normal size and weight, no food allergies. To complicate this, Mobe’s new owners cat is not taking well to him and is attacking quite viciously, since he is blind he has no idea she is coming after him. She has asked some rescue contacts to find him a temporary foster home but is looking for a rescue who understands special needs dogs and specializes in placing a blind dog. Mobe is very alert and independent and walks well on the leash, even in an area he is unfamiliar with. He also is comfortable enough to walk off leash, if you click your fingers he follows you. He does not act as if he is any different than other dogs and even when he bumps into something he goes right back on his way. Mobe's owner is looking to place him somewhere where he can get the attention he needs as a special needs dog because she can't give this to him. She also worries about his safety with her cat as he does not defend himself and she is too aggressive with him. She realizes she should not have taken him but it was never indicated up front how severe his blindness was and other than his blindness he is healthy and there was no reason for him to be euthanized. She just had to save him. Owner will be taking Mobe to her own vet for glucose tests to determine if the cause for cataracts is diabetes. She will also get the cyst on his hip checked and start him on some supplements and eye drops as a maintenance measure.

Update:  Mobe is in a foster home with a friend of his owner's, but he is still looking for a home of his own!

Name: Boomer
Sex: Male (not yet altered)
Breed: Walker Coonhound
Age: Unknown
Location: West Salem, OH

Vet/Medical Info:
Boomer saw the vet 12/9/2011 and was dewormed. He has limited vision, his left eye doesn't constrict but the retinas are normal. There is a note on his file to schedule a visit for neutering and vaccinations.

Owner Info: Boomer was a stray that came into his current owners yard. He was very thin and had worms, they fed him and eventually brought him into the house. He is a good dog but they have one rescue and two large strays that they have kept already so they cannot keep him. They put posters in the local shelters and pet stores hoping an owner would call, two local rescue groups have been contacted to try to place him also. Boomer has been recently housebroken, he's doing really well and seems to walk well on a leash. It is hard to work on other commands with all the other dogs around, but they think he can learn if someone works with him. Boomer is good with people of all ages and good with other dogs. He has no aggression but is very intent on food - he grabs and attacks food even after being fed regularly for about a month now. This may take longer to overcome. They had a houseful of company over the holidays, furniture was moved, people milling around and he did well with all the confusion. He does not like car rides though. He has started gaining some weight and muscle since his pictures were taken when they first got him. His coat has gotten softer and his general health seems good except he drinks a lot of water. Boomer has been checked by a vet, they said his pupils are dilated and will not constrict even in direct light. Feels he has some vision just not sure how much. Boomer is being taken back to the vet this week to get neutered, vaccinated and heartworm tested. They are willing to keep Boomer until he can be placed in a good home. He is very friendly and now loves attention. Boomer has figured out the pet door and has not tried to run away even when he got out of the fenced yard.

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.

Name: Jack
Age: 8 - 10 years old
Breed: Rat Terrier
Sex: Male (confirmed neutered)
Location: Eastern Georgia
 
Vet Info:  Jack is confirmed neutered and heartworm negative.  He is next due for rabies, bordetella, distemper, and parvo vaccines on 12/6/13.  While a heart murmur had been heard previously, there was no murmur heard at Jack's most recent visit, but he does have a luxating patella and advanced cataracts. Jack weighs 13 pounds and is microchipped. 
 
Owner Info: Jack was abandoned at a local vet hospital by his original owners, and the staff there surrendered him to a local high kill shelter. Due to his age and what appeared to be an injury to his knee, he was unfortunately not headed to the adoption area, so a rescue stepped in to save his life.  Unfortunately, he has not yet been able to find his adoptive home, and they're hoping for larger rescue placement for Jack.  Jack is an 8 to 10 year old, neutered male, tri colored Rat Terrier. He weighs about 13 pounds. Jack is an indoor dog with run of the house, and he is housebroken and crate trained.  He walks great on a harness and leash and loves to ride in the car. He is good with people of all ages, and with both dogs and cats.  Jack loves soft dog beds and chewing on pressed rawhide bones. He thinks peanut butter is delicious, and he takes his daily meds in canned food. He can chew dry food also, if mixed in with a little water.  Jack's leg was not broken or injured, but he has an arthritic, luxating patella (knee). He needs daily joint supplements and pain meds that have to be purchased and regulated by a veterinarian. He will need these for the rest of his life, but these medications are relatively inexpensive.  He loves to cuddle under blankets with you on cool days, but he can't go for long walks so his diet has to be monitored so that he doesn't get too fat.  Extra weight is bad for his compromised joints. Jack is a real sweetheart!

Name:  Lottie
Age: About 10 years old
Sex: Female
Breed:  Mixed
Location:  Central California
Vet Info: Her eyes are very cloudy and there was little visual response. 

Owner Info:  Lottie is an indoor dog who seems to be almost housebroken.  She is not yet leash-trained.  She is good with people of all ages, cats, and dogs.  She is fine if the owner puts her hand down near her face or food bowl while she is eating.  She may have some hearing loss and sometimes she doesn't move very quickly which might be due to a joint problem.  Her eyes are "clear/translucent."  

The owner wrote: "I am trying to find a home for a sweet, old, blind dog. I found her in a parking lot and have not been able to find any owner. And I've tried everything. I took her in for a basic vet exam. She's probably about 10 years old, 15 pounds, she's not spayed, she has a few lumps on her belly. The vet said her blindness is not due to cataracts. His guess was that it was something to do with lipids/fat in her eyes. I know she should get a full examination and blood work done and be spayed, but I can't afford a third dog! And my living situation and schedule are not right for her. So I've started putting the word out there to local animal rescues and such. She is really, really sweet and her tail is almost always wagging. And she's calm and quiet. The only time she really makes noise is when she lets out an adorable little howl right after she yawns. She will be a great dog for the right person."

Here is a youtube video of Lottie: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8s0I-DMebX4


Update 10/14/13: We recently got an update on Lottie - her owner wrote:  "Lottie took a trip to the emergency vet. Her stomach was really swollen and hard. Turns out, she had a mass on her spleen that had slightly ruptured. So she had surgery to remove the mass on her spleen and her mammary lumps. And she was spayed. Turns out her mammary lumps were cancerous and it spread to her spleen. The vet didn’t see any other cancer, but since it already spread to her spleen, chances are, it will spread elsewhere. And if that’s the case, the vet thinks she has around 6 to 8 months to live. L  Poor little baby. But for now, it seems like she feels fantastic! Better than ever. Or at least better than I’ve ever seen her. So I will continue to love her and take care of her until she stops feeling fantastic. Unless… I find someone who wants to take care of her and can give her a better life than I can. Even though she seems happy here with me, I still think she’d be happier with someone who is home more often and where she doesn’t spend the majority of her time in a room by herself."

Lottie was recently spayed and is now up to date on her shots and is heartworm negative.

Name: Dixie
Age: One year old
Breed: Pit Bull
Sex:  Female (confirmed spayed)
Location: About one hour north of Detroit, MI

 
Vet Info:  Dixie is confirmed spayed. She is up to date on vaccines including rabies, but the dates her vaccines are next due could not be given. She is heartworm negative. Dixie weighs 46 pounds. Dixie can see shadows.
 
Owner Info: Dixie's owner runs a pitbull rescue and is having a difficult time placing her. Dixie has gone to two homes, but has been returned both times as they said they did not have the "time or patience" for her. Dixie's owner is hoping for other rescue placement as Dixie needs someone that is going to have more time for her.  Dixie is an indoor dog confined to one area of the house, she is housebroken and leash trained. She is good with people of all ages, and her owner checked that she's good with both male and female dogs and cats, however, she did note that Dixie has shown aggression to some female dogs.  Dixie has never bitten or snapped at anyone!  Dixie is a smart girl and knows "sit", "touch", "stay", and "lay down".  Dixie can see shadows only, and her owner says that she's a great dog!  

Update 4/14/14:  Dixie is doing well and is still looking for her forever home!

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

 
Name: Isabella
Age: 2 years
Sex: Female (spayed)
Breed: Dachshund/Terrier mix
Location: Houston, TX

Vet Info: Isabella weighs 26 pounds. She is up to date on her rabies. She is spayed. She is also heartworm negative. 

Owner Info: Isabella was surrendered at a shelter by her owner and was scheduled for euthanasia when she was pulled by an independent rescuer.  Then it was discovered that she has cataracts, so the rescuer is hoping to find someone who might want Isabella who will find out if she could be a candidate for cataract surgery.  Isabella is an indoor dog who is not yet housebroken or leashtrained.  She is shy but good with people of all ages and also good with dogs. She is currently living with a foster family that has 3 other dogs but, because she cannot see, sometimes she invades the space of the other dogs, and this causes some friction.  Therefore, the rescuer is not sure how long Isabella can stay in this foster home although Isabella has never bitten or snapped as far as anyone knows.  She seems to be in good health with the exception of an ongoing skin issues, probably due to allergies and fleas, and she is receiving treatment.  The rescuer said: "She's a sweet girl who really needs a break."

Name: Moe
Age: 8 to 8 1/2 years (estimated)
Breed: Shih Tzu
Sex: Male (confirmed neutered)
Location: Denver, CO area



Vet Info: Moe is confirmed neutered and up to date on vaccines. He was given one year rabies vaccine on 12/21/12 and had distemper vaccine at shelter on 12/11/12. He has not had a recent heartworm test. Moe weighs about 20 pounds. 



Owner Info: Moe's owner adopted him from a shelter in December 2012. He was an owner surrender due to previous owner's ill health. Moe had some vision when adopted (he had one eye) but does not now have vision as he had his other eye removed shortly after adoption due to glaucoma. Unfortunately, his current owner now has health problems herself and she is unable to give Moe the care he needs.

Moe is an indoor dog with run of the house, he is housebroken and leash trained. Moe is good with men, women, and teenagers, but younger children may frighten him. He is good with both male and female dogs and cats.
Moe is not possessive of toys, treats, or food and has never bitten or snapped. His owner says that Moe adapts well to new situations.

Moe's owner has written a wonderful and emotional write-up on Moe and I've shared that here -

Moe is a sweet little boy who, while at times greatly frustrated, will still respond to me when I tell him to be calm and that it's night time and everyone is asleep. Moe doesn't have much interaction with many animals since losing his sight, though he does get comfort from their presence. I have learned that I can do something to keep his interest and then he won't cry so much, but I must confess I'm not too good at this. 


If I could physically work with him and train him there is NO WAY I would ever consider letting him go. It is best for him so he can finish his years happy and full of life. Sadly, I have physical ailments that prevent me from tending to his special needs. We live in a two story home and it is extremely difficult for me to carry Moe up and down the stairs. I love this little guy and he deserves someone that can physically be able to handle him. It would be so much easier if we lived in a home better suited for a blind animal. It is therefore my responsibility to find him the person that is capable of seeing to his needs. Moe loves being outside except when it's too hot. Otherwise, it's definitely air conditioning for him. He also prefers rugs or carpet under his little feet. He doesn't like being on furniture at all. Moe seems to have lost interest in all the toys I can find, both ones that make noise or have an attracting odor. He loves to play mostly in the mornings. It's actually getting on the floor and tickling him and slapping the floor while he runs around burying his head and bouncing everywhere. He is definitely a morning puppy the earlier the better to be sure. He also loves to play with his towel after a bath. He loves being chased while I sit and grab him with the towel as he hops and runs past me. Then I run him dry until he gets away. We continue this either until he's dry or we both tire out.

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 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!

10/20: Dominic is now with a temporary foster and is still looking for rescue or a permanent home!  Here is an update:

He is a very confident dog and knows his way around in a home.
 I took him to my vet yesterday and he is now UTD on shots and is HW negative.  (yay!)  He was already neutered and chipped.

 I'm going to get the chip in my name. So he is ready to be rehomed.  We will test him with other dogs, although he does seem to be fairly dog friendly.  He was a little driven around my cats (when he knew they were there), so I would recommend a home without cats.  He is a great car rider.  He would have slept with me the bed if the cats hadn't come around.  He loves to give kisses!



October 10, 2013: Dominic has been given a few extra days. The owners have given him until Monday, October 16th to find placement or he will be PTS.


Name: Dominic
Age: 3-4 years
Sex: Male confirmed neutered)
Breed: Pit Bull
Size: 40-50 lbs.
Location: Houston, Texas

Vet Info: Has been confirmed as neutered..

Owner Info: I found him a week ago walking into moving (and swerving) vehicles and quickly realized he was blind. My husband and I cannot keep him but applied Frontline and are keeping him in a crate in our garage.
We put him on our community's Facebook page (that's how we heard of Blind Dog Rescue), I called all of the rescues in my area and beyond, and I have spread the word in my community. I took him to the vet and had him scanned for a microchip.. He has one but all of the contact numbers were the wrong numbers or did not return our calls. We found him with fleas and no collar, so we don't want to pass judgment but are thinking it may be a possibility that he wasn't wanted. Also, all of the foster groups I called within 3 hours of where we live were maxed out and the shelters are all kill shelters. His microchip had him listed as "Monster," but he doesn't respond to that. We have been calling him "Dominic."


Owner states that Dominic is housebroken; leash trained; knows basic commands; outgoing; good with all people and dogs. Owners have two cats that ran when they saw Dominic but he did not chase.
Owner feels Dominic adapts well and stated “He readily got in my car when I found him, is great on jogs, and waits for me to put him on his leash before he goes wandering around. He seems careful about where he is going (despite me finding him on a busy road). He definitely welcomes direction from his walker/jogger.”

Vet Info: Oscar is neutered. He had a three year rabies shot in September 2013. He was found to be HW negative in November of 2012. 


Owner Info: Oscar's owner has had him for about a year. He is an outdoor dog in a fenced yard. He is 14-17 pounds. He is not housetrained or leash-trained. He is good with people of all ages and with other dogs. If a dog bothers him, he will run and hide. He will snap at people if he is scared/when he is in a new place, but his owner said that he adjusted to her quickly and responds well to love and attention. His current owner is not able to give him the time and attention he needs, plus she does not have the money to care for him as she would like, so is hoping he can find a new home. He loves to run around the yard and loves to have his ears scratched. If his owner is sitting on the floor, he loves to crawl on her lap!

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: Sadie

Age: 2 to 3  years

Sex: Female/spayed

Breed: Border Collie/Lab mix

Location: near Hagerstown, MD


Vet Info: Sadie is spayed. She weighs 51 pounds. She is up to date on her shots and is heartworm negative. 


Owner Info: Sadie is housebroken and can be food aggressive; she may bark when a dog comes by her crate while she is eating. She has snapped at the owner's toddler but she thinks her toddler makes Sadie nervous.


The owner wrote: "I rescued Sadie from Alabama.  She is considered a border collie/lab mix by their vet. She is spayed and currently up to date on her shots. She's between 2-3 yrs old. She melts when she's petted and eventually ends up on the floor for a belly rub. I do have her crate trained. She is either too hyper for my other rescue dogs or they sense she's different because now it's to the point where my other rescues get into it with her so she has to be taken out separately. She is blind in her left eye so she walks on your left so she can look up at you. You can't tell she's blind in one eye by the way she runs and plays and used to play with my lab mix. She's curious about cats but is a little too playful when near mine and scares them off. I believe she would be best as an only dog with someone who can provide her the attention she wants. She doesn't mind kids - it's just she's hyper and my toddler doesn't know any better so probably no young kids. As far as other dogs - she does get along with a few of mine but sometimes tiffs break out between 2 of them but something may have brought it on...whether it was her or them...not sure. Cats - same problem. She doesn't attack them but scares them some because she's got her nose all on them but my inside cat ignores her. She's not cat aggressive, but curious and may learn once she's around one enough. With dogs, the food issue may be a problem but she eats in her kennel. She's not a bad dog, just isn't in a calm environment right now where others aren't barking at her or jumping on her on the way to the front door or trying to fight her. She may calm down once in a stable home and not in a crate more than out and about freely with no issues. She may be too hyper for an older dog but with a friendly younger one who likes to play, I think she'd be fine."

Name: Spot

Age: 5 years

Breed: Jack Russell / Chi Mix

Sex: Male (confirmed neutered)

Location: New Richmond, WI area

Vet Info:  Spot is confirmed neutered.  His next rabies vaccine is due 2/7/15.  He is overdue for a distemper vaccine and has not been recently heartworm tested.  Spot is microchipped.  He weighs approximately 17 pounds.

Owner Info:  Spot is kept in a crate most of the day as his owners have several children, including one-year old twins, and their house is too chaotic for him.  It is not safe for him or the twins.  His owners are hoping for rescue or adoption for Spot so he can have the life he deserves!  They have had Spot since he was a puppy and were told his parents had the same eye issue, but they do not know the cause of his blindness and cannot afford to take him to a specialist.  They say that he is completely blind in one eye and has very little sight in the other.  Spot has been blind for about two years.
  

Spot is an indoor dog who is crated, he is housebroken but not leash trained.  He is good with the husband in the house, but he doesn't seem to like other men.  He's also good with women and cats, and he's good with some other dogs, but he prefers calm dogs, and does not like dogs who are hyper and will jump on him.  He should not live with young children, but is fine with the older children in the house.  Spot is possessive of food, and does not like if you try to take his food or toys away, although he is OK if you take away his water.  He is fed in his kennel.  He has snapped, but has never broken skin.   A visitor to the house wrote, "When I was visiting, the one year old had him cornered and he bit her arm. Made 2 indentations, did not break skin or draw blood. When he was neutered, the vet called the owner to come get him out of the kennel before surgery as he was growling & showing teeth".  The visitor was able to hold him and said that the owner handed him to her backward, which the owner had been advised to do by her vet.   They love Spot and are very much hoping for a less chaotic home for him so that he can have everything he deserves!

Gracie is a sweet and beautiful girl whose owner took a bad fall last month and is currently in rehab. When released she will not be able to return home and the apartment she is going to will not allow dogs. A vet tech from the office where Gracie is a client is trying very hard to help Gracie's owner find a new home or rescue for sweet Gracie.

Name:  Gracie
Age:  9 years
Breed:  Cocker Spaniel
Sex:  Female (confirmed spayed)
Location:  About two hours south of Little Rock, Arkansas

Vet Info:  Gracie is confirmed spayed and up to date on vaccines. Her next rabies vaccine is due 4/28/14. On 4/29/13, she also received the distemper and kennel cough vaccines. She is heartworm negative and a fecal in April was also negative. They write that Gracie "became heartworm positive on preventions a year or so ago, was treated with Immiticide and later tested negative." Gracie weighs about 30 pounds. 


Owner Info:  Gracie is a sweet and beautiful girl whose owner took a bad fall last month and is currently in rehab. When released she will not be able to return home and the apartment she is going to will not allow dogs. A vet tech from the office where Gracie is a client is trying very hard to help Gracie's owner find a new home or rescue for sweet Gracie, and she writes, "Her situation has touched me and I'm trying to help her find placement for this dog. Both for the dog's sake and so the owner knows she's safe. Our local pound is not a place I'd like to see any dog go to, let alone an older, vision impaired dog. "  Gracie is currently being cared for by neighbors.


Gracie's owner has had her since she was about 8 months old.  Gracie is an indoor dog with run of the house, she is housebroken and leash trained.  She has never lived with men or kids, but her vet and groomer are both men. She's lived with other female dogs and gotten along well with them all, and lived with an older male dog when she was first adopted.  


Gracie can sometimes be possessive with food or treats, but they say she has never been aggressive about it, and has never bitten or snapped.  She does very well with the people coming in to the house to take care of her.  


Gracie's owner is uncertain as to the cause of Gracie's blindness, but believes it may be dry eye.  There is no mention in her vet records as to the cause of her blindness.

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!   

2/16/14 "
Yesterday I took the day off and I went to a friends house who has an old dog.We put them together and they get along very nicely
 !"

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)
Location:  Muskogee, OK

Vet Info:   Daisy is not yet spayed or up to date on vaccines, but she is confirmed heartworm negative.  Daisy weighs about 52 pounds. Her caregiver writes that she'll have vaccines after she is well.  

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!

Belle is a beautiful little girl who was born blind. She is with her owner but they want to re-home her because they are gone a lot and they're worried about her being alone so much. Belle also sheds and they “were expecting a non-shedding dog.” 

Name: Belle
Age: 3 years (born February, 2011)
Breed: Miniature Golden Doodle
Sex: Female (not spayed)
Location: Western Ohio

Vet Info: Belle has only been to a vet once, when her owners took her to confirm she was blind. She is not spayed. Her owner says Belle has received the 7-way vaccination at home. She also says that Belle has had the rabies vaccination but this has not been confirmed. She has not been tested for heartworm. Belle weighs about 25 pounds. 

Owner Info: Belle is a beautiful little girl who was born blind. She is with her owner but they want to re-home her because they are gone a lot and they're worried about her being alone so much. Belle also sheds and they “were expecting a non-shedding dog.” Belle was recently placed in another home but she was returned to her owners after one week because she “didn’t like the dog at the house we tried to re-home her with.” Belle is an indoor dog who has the run of the house. She is house-broken and leash-trained and her owner describes her as outgoing, nervous and good with men. Her owner says Belle is good with everyone but she is really attached to her husband and “the family that tried to take her said she attached herself to the father there.”

Belle has never tried to bite or attack anyone, although her owner said when she was in the other home, she “growled and lunged at their little girl” and when she came back from that home she “lunged and snapped at my 7 year old daughter.” The owner writes, “I think it was probably too much for her, too different. She has only ever been with us” and “she may have been all worked up from the change she had been through. I think that may be why she lunged at my daughter. She has been fine since she’s settled back in.” Her owner writes, “Belle has always growled a little when she is startled or her space is invaded.”

Regarding other dogs, her owner states that the only other dog Belle has been around, besides the dog that she acted aggressively towards at the other home, is Belle’s mother, who also lives with the family. For this reason, Belle’s owner thinks that she would do best in a home without other dogs. 

Her owner says Belle is “the sweetest thing” and “she just goes with the flow and tries to get everyone’s attention and love. She loves to be petted.” Belle was even “used for a 4H project.” Additionally, she says, “We are gone a lot with working and kid’s activities, I don't like her being alone so much. The dog hair is too much for me to handle.”

A good samaritan rescued Momma from A A good Samaritan rescued Momma from craigslist but then found out that Momma does not enjoy her young, active children (although Momma is not at all aggressive).  Momma needs a new, quieter home.  She is a beautiful girl!!

Name:    Momma
Age:       9 years
Sex:       Female/spayed
Breed:    Shih Tzu
Location:  Wisconsin

Vet Info: Momma has been spayed.  She is up to date on her rabies shot but the vet has no information on any other shot.  There is no record of HW testing either.  She weighs 16 pounds and is about 9 years old.  She is blind and her health is good. 

Owner Info: Momma's current owner rescued her from craiglist but is unable to keep her because she has young children, and the activity level of the young children bothers Momma. Momma is not aggressive at all to anyone or any animal, but isolates herself from everyone when it gets loud.  She needs a quieter home.  Momma is housebroken and leashtrained.  She is good with people of all ages and also with male dogs and cats, although the owner is unsure about female dogs

 (the owner does not have female dogs at her house).  She is going blind but sees well enough to maneuver well around the house and yard. The owner said that Momma recently had bloodwork which indicates that her blindness is not related to diabetes/Momma is not diabetic. She is a former puppy mill breeding dog so she was not taken care of and is especially in need of a dental.  She also is a little bit overweight as she was "free-fed" puppy food in her last home, but now she is on a reasonable diet and is losing weight. Her owner wrote:  Momma is a sweet girl.  She isn't overly outgoing or social, and prefers to be near her people rather than being in a lap, but is okay being picked up and loved on.  She enjoys the company of other dogs, especially those around her own size.

Emma was adopted just six weeks ago from a hoarder situation in Florida, and, unfortunately, she has been aggressive to other dogs in her new home. 


She needs a home immediately where she will be the only dog.


Name: Emma

Age: 4 years

Sex: female/spayed

Breed: pitbull/bulldog mix

Location: Albany area of NY


Vet Info: Emma is spayed and is up to date on her shots. Her heartworm test was "faintly" positive and the only treatment needed is heartworm preventitive. Emma has small eyes and likely was blind since birth. She is healthy. 

Owner Info: Six weeks ago, the current owner rescued Emma and her "seeing eye companion dog" from a hoarder situation in Florida. She was told that Emma was great with other dogs. However, Emma has attacked her companion dog on more than one occasion, and has attacked other dogs in the home, and one time "would not let go." The owner believes she does this out of fear. A rescue tested Emma and said she is not dog aggressive. Emma has never been aggressive to people and is "very gentle" around people. She is an indoor dog and is housebroken and leashtrained. She learned her way around her new home quickly. She trusts people and does so well that "you often forget she is blind." Emma is 55 pounds. Right now Emma is being kept separate from the other dogs in her home. She needs a home where she will be the only animal, and she should not be in a home with young children. Her owner said Emma is "happy and healthy."

Alma and Sebastian are adorable puppies, rescued from certain death at the shelter, but now are living in a kennel, and really want to be in a home!!

Name: Alma (black and white) and Sebastian (mostly black)

Age: 3 months
Sex: female and male (puppies/not altered)
Breed: Lab/border collie mix ?
Location: Arkansas
Vet Info: The puppies appear to be healthy. The vet has given no shots but has on record that the owner said the first distemper was given in late February. The vet did a fecal and checked the puppies' eyes. The vet said that the puppies apparently had a reaction to their distemper vaccination which caused their corneas to develop edema and they appeared cloudy. The edema and cloudiness cleared after a round of a prescription medication, but then the cloudiness and edema reappeared again. One puppy has both eyes affected and the other pup has one. The vet thinks that this might clear up over time, but he is not sure. 

Owner Info: The owner pulled these pups from the local Animal Control and currently they are being boarded at the kennel where the owner works. Since they are puppies, they are not yet housetrained or leashtrained, but are affectionate and energetic and ready for a home!

Bandit is a very handsome fellow whose owner can no longer keep him.  He is looking for a great home!


Name: Bandit

Age: 1 year

Sex: male (intact)

Breed: Australian Cattle Dog

Location: Near Los Angeles, CA


Vet Info: There is no vet information for Bandit at this time. 

Owner Info: Bandit's owner has recently moved and now she cannot keep him inside with her, so he needs a new home. Bandit is about a year old and weighs about 35 pounds. He is not yet neutered. He is housetrained and leashtrained, and understands sit, get down, and leave it. He is an outgoing dog who might be nervous at times, but he is good with people of all ages and also with dogs. When his owner takes him to her parents, Bandit barks at their little dogs but not aggressively. Bandit has never shown an aggression to a person or animal. The owner confirmed Bandit is up to date with his shots and is heartworm negative, and also that he is "very healthy." She said that he is "partially blind but will go fully blind the older he gets. He has the common blinding gene that exists in his breed that causes retinal atrophy." She also said, "Although Bandit is blind, he loves to play catch. He always returns the toy and sits and wait for you to throw it."

Sex:    male/intact   

Breed:   lab

Location:  northwest of Boston

Vet Info: There is no vet information at this time. 

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.”
