Patch and Edward are siblings, and both are in need of a new home.  Their current owner would like them to stay together, but also said she thinks they will be fine if they are separated.  


They are beautiful dogs!!


4/28/16 We've heard from Edward's owner, and he is still looking for a new home.  He is as sweet and loving as ever!  His owner writes, 

"Edward is still here....He's still a friendly, sweet, and loving boy. His eye sight hasn't changed any. Lately he has been spending a lot of time in our garage because of the weather. He absolutely hates rain and storms so the garage is his safe place.
At this time I don't have any new pictures. I will try to get that done soon and send them. Thanks for keeping in touch."


4/17/15 We've heard from Patch's and Edward's owner and Patch has been adopted!  She has her very own family with a little girl to love her and a big farm to run on!

Edward is still in need of rescue (he is the brown dog in the photos).  His owner writes that he's done very well without his sister and really deserves a new life.  "He has done very well without his sister around. In fact,  I think he may have become an even better dog. He has put on some weight and is looking healthier. We have tried different toys for him but he just doesn't seem to get it. So bones and biscuits for my boy.  I love him to pieces but my dog absolutely loathes him. He still needs his own family and the sooner the better."

Update: 11/16/14 - A Thanksgiving miracle is needed for Patch and Edward!!   The OS Team heard from Patch's current owner who wrote: 


Patch and Edward are still here.  A lady was supposed to come get Patch almost a month ago and never showed up.  It has gotten too cold too fast and I'm afraid no one is interested in taking in two untrained outdoor dogs. Especially one that is blind. These two need a miracle. 



Names:  Edward and Patch  

Age:  two years     

Sex:  Edward (male)(brown dog in pictures) and Patch (female) - neither have been altered      

Breed: Great Pyrenees/Lab mixes   

Location:  Nebraska


Vet Info: Edward and Patch are up to date on shots. The vet has no other information on either Edward or Patch

Owner Info: The owner would like Patch and Edward to go together to the same home, but is also fine if they go to separate homes. Their current owner has had Edward and his sister, Patch, for the past four months. They belonged to family who could not take the dogs when they moved. Unfortunately, the current owner's male dog does not like having Patch and Edward in the home, so both dogs need a new home. Edward is 63-65 pounds and is not neutered. Patch is the same weight and not spayed. Patch can see. Edward has dilated pupils and can, perhaps, see shapes and shadows. Patch and Edward are outdoor dogs and are not housetrained. They do walk on a leash. Edward and Patch have only been to a vet once, and that was to get shots this summer. 

When asked how they are with men, other dogs, and cats, the owner wrote: "Edward is leery of men. He's never done anything to any one, he just steers clear. He won't go to my husband unless I'm with him and then he's fine. Cats are just a toy to Edward
 and Patch (they have killed a kitten). As for male dogs, I think if Edward and my dog were both neutered, they might get along better. My two are the only dogs they've been around." 

She knows that Edward is good with female dogs, women, and children of all ages. Patch is good with both male and female dogs, and people (men, women, and children) of all ages. 

The current owner also wrote: "Edward is a handsome devil with the sweetest disposition. He is always so happy to see me, well, I guess he can't really see me but he knows that I'm there and can't wait for some lovin'. Him not being able to see really doesn't seem to affect him much and I know he would be a great pet for anyone willing to take him in. Patch is a sweet and beautiful girl. She does well with my kids and gets along great with our lab. She loves to play with tennis balls and anything else you might give her."

2/22/15 Update:  We've heard from Sledge's owner and he is still looking for a home or rescue!  Please continue to reach out on his behalf! 

---

Sledge is a very handsome fellow whose owner is no longer able to care for him as she has two small children.  She's tried Craigslist and posting him at a few other places, but has been unable to find a new home for Sledge.  She is very much hoping for rescue.  

Name:     Sledge
Age:         6 years
Breed:      Lab/Chow mix
Sex:         Male (confirmed neutered)
Location:  Houston, TX area

Vet Info:  Sledge is confirmed neutered and up to date on vaccines.  He was given a one year rabies vaccine on June 13, 2014, and also a puppy shot, minus the lepto.  He was tested for heartworm on the same day and is heartworm negative.  Fecal was also negative for parasites.  Sledge weighs about 60 pounds.

Owner Info:  Sledge is a very handsome fellow whose owner is no longer able to care for him as she has two small children.  She's tried Craigslist and posting him at a few other places, but has been unable to find a new home for Sledge.  She is very much hoping for rescue.  She's had Sledge since he was a puppy, where he was being given away at a local feed store.

Sledge is an outdoor dog with a fenced yard, he is housebroken and leash trained.  He is a friendly and loving boy, and good with people of all ages.  Sledge has never shown any aggression towards people, but since he lost his eyesight, he has become possessive over food and has shown aggression toward one of their dogs.  His owner writes that he did defend himself when their pitbull mix attacked him, but did not provoke the fight, and that he is not an aggressive dog.   They believe this was due to his sudden onset of blindness.  They believe Sledge has "glaucoma induced blindness. His eyesight is completely gone, his eyes bulge slightly and are 100% white."  Other than his blindness, they write that Sledge has no other health issues.

We asked for more detail about how Sledge is with other dogs:  "He is fine with my blue healer, he used to be an inside dog along with my blue healer. But when we had our first child we moved him outside. Then we got our third dog the pitbull mix and about a year later sledge went blind. Two of them had gotten along fine before he went blind which was approximately two and half years ago.  He is a generally good natured dog and still very young and healthy minus his eyesight...If given enough time I am praying that he finds a good home that can give him more attention than I can." 

They feel Sledge adapts well to new situations "as long as he has a leader to tell him where to go so he wont hurt himself running into things. He is very high energy so if left alone he can hurt his head a great deal."

They add that Sledge is a loving dog, and he just loves to the fullest!

Spirit is a beautiful girl who was found wandering by a road, dragging a chain.  She would love a family to take care of her!!! 


Name:    Spirit

Age:       8-10 years

Sex:       Female (not altered)

Breed:    Chow or Chow Mix

Location:  South Carolina


Vet Info: N/A - this dog was a stray and the current owner can't afford to take her to the vet. 

Owner Info: The current owner wrote: "I picked up this poor baby from the side of the road last Saturday night after almost being hit by car and she was dragging a chain. I noticed she seemed hard of hearing, if not almost deaf. After a few days of being in a makeshift shelter in my yard, I brought her inside as the temperature was going to be in teens.I realized she was mostly blind when she had a lot of trouble going up porch steps the first time (now she is pretty good on them). I can't keep her as she doesn't seem cat friendly, and I have rescued cats inside and feral cats outside that have claimed me as home. She is in a 12 ft hallway now since that's the only place she can safely be in my cluttered home." Spirit weighs about 40 pounds. She is not spayed. She is housetrained but not leash trained. The current owner does not know how she would be with other dogs. Spirit does run into things in the house. The current owner wrote: "Spirit is a sweet dog and deserves to be pampered for the rest of her life after being on a chain and outside probably for all of her past life."

Chip is a beautiful mostly blind and deaf Catahoula Leopard Dog who is about 7 months old.  Chip and his brother were taken in by a rescue in Florida because the owner threatened to shoot them due to their disabilities.

Chip would do best with someone who has experience with a visually impaired dog.

Age:  approximately 7 months

Sex:   Male (confirmed neutered)

Breed:   Catahoula 

Location:  Florida

and teenagers, as well as male and female dogs. He is not possessive of toys, treats, or food and has never shown aggression.

4/11/15 Xena's caregiver shared how she got her name.  She is such a sweetheart!  

"I named her Xena after the warrior princess because she actually looked worse in person than in the photo.  I went to the city shelter to pick her up, Xena wagged her tail, licked me & was happy to be held.  She had to be in pain, but was still happy."

Xena is a beautiful girl who was rescued from a shelter.  She was going to be euthanized due to her severe eye injury.  Her caregiver cannot afford to keep her, and also writes that she needs a larger yard and more exercise than he can give her.  He is very much hoping for a new home or rescue for sweet Xena.  Her "before" and "after" pictures are attached.

Name:     Xena
Age:        about 1 1/2 years
Breed:     Coonhound Mix?
Sex:        female (confirmed spayed)
Location:  Houston, TX

Vet Info:  Xena is confirmed spayed and up to date on vaccines.  She is next due for her rabies vaccine on 3/27/18.  She is heartworm negative.  Xena weighs about 52 pounds.

Owner Info:  Xena is a beautiful girl who was rescued from a shelter.  She was going to be euthanized due to her severe eye injury.  Her caregiver cannot afford to keep her, and also writes that she needs a larger yard and more exercise than he can give her.  He is very much hoping for a new home or rescue for sweet Xena.  

Xena's owner gave us more info about her eye conditions:  "Xena was picked up by the city animal control with her left eye hanging out on a Friday. Due to the severity of her injury she was going to be euthanized. She seemed so sweet, I rescued her. I volunteer with a local rescue & raised money through them to have her eye removed, get her spayed & vaccinated. The vet thinks she have very limited vision in her 1 eye."  Other than that, he says Xena is very healthy.

Xena is an indoor dog with run of the house, she is housebroken but not leash trained.  She knows the commands sit and stay!  Xena is described as outgoing, and she's good with people of all ages and both male and female dogs.  She currently lives with several other dogs.

Xena is not possessive of toys, treats, or food and has never bitten or snapped.  Her owner writes that when she's in a cage at Petsmart for an adoption event, she will sometimes bark at other dogs walking by, but "I do not think it is aggression, just fear of not knowing the dog. When relatives have come to visit & brought their dog(s), she welcomes them at home."  Her caregiver feels that she adapts well to new situations.

Xena is a very sweet little girl!  Her caregiver wants us to know, "Xena is a sweetheart of a dog. She is very gentle & loving. She also loves to run and play with other dogs. I think she would do best in a home with a large fenced yard & other dogs to play with."

4/21/15:  Emma is a beautiful Cocker Spaniel whose owner can no longer afford the medical care she needs.  Emma also has a hard time around her owner's young son, and hides whenever he is loud.  She is hoping for a new home for sweet Emma where she will be taken care of and loved.

Name:     Emma
Breed:     Cocker Spaniel
Age:       9 - 11 years
Sex:       Female (spayed per owner, not verified)
Location:   Fayetteville, NC area

Vet Info:   Emma is spayed per her owner, but this is not able to be verified as she was spayed prior to being with her owner.  Emma is not up to date on vaccines and has not had a recent heartworm test.  She weighs about 20 pounds.

Owner Info:    Emma is a beautiful Cocker Spaniel whose owner can no longer afford the medical care she needs.  Emma also has a hard time around her owner's young son, and hides whenever he is loud.  She is hoping for a new home for sweet Emma where she will be taken care of and loved.  Emma has been with her owner almost four years.

Emma is an indoor dog with run of the house, she is housebroken and leash trained.  Her owner writes Emma can sit if you take two fingers lightly across her head and say sit, and if you tap the top of her crate at night, she will hop right in!  Emma is good with men and women and older children/teenagers, and male and female dogs and cats!  She is a very sweet little girl and is not possessive of toys, treats, or food, and has never shown any aggression. 

Emma is completely blind.  Her owner tells us she used to see shadows but cannot any more, and to her knowledge, Emma is in very good health considering her age. 

Emma's owner gave us more details about how Emma does in new situations:  "When she first went blind she just seemed to get around just like before. We take her to my mother in laws when we go visit and she got around there just as easy as at home. She does however tend to pee on her self if you try and pick her up or suddenly touch her without saying anything first to let her know your there."

Emma's owner wants us to know that Emma is a super sweet and amazing girl!  "Emma is a great dog she is happy just laying in your lap all day. This is extremely hard for our family but this is what is best for her. She needs someone who can afford to take her to the vet regularly. She does need to have someone that can stay with her most of the day. She is crate trained but we only put her in the crate when we go to bed, and then out first thing in the morning. She loves people and children, but since she went blind loud noises scare her so she would do better with older children and in a quiet house hold. Emma is a very special dog and as hard as this is for us she deserves the best possible home."

10/28 Update: Boy is still very much in need!  Elizabeth has spoken with his contact, and Boy is still living in the field and is now running with a pack of dogs.  His contact has not been able to catch him, but is feeding him and hopes to catch him before winter sets in.  

5/17/15: Boy is a very handsome and gentle fellow who was likely dumped because he is blind.  He's living in a field and is being fed by a good samaritan who is trying desperately to find him rescue.   She has tried reaching out to several rescues but has not yet had any luck.

Name:      Boy
Age:        Unknown - possibly a few years?
Breed:     Possible Cur Mix?
Sex:       Male (not neutered)
Location: Corpus Christi, TX

Vet Info:  Boy hasn't been vetted.  He weighs approximately 45 pounds.  He is not neutered.

Owner Info:  Boy is a very handsome and gentle fellow who was likely dumped because he is blind.  He's living in a field and is being fed by a good samaritan who is trying desperately to find him rescue.   She has tried reaching out to several rescues but has not yet had any luck.

Boy's good samaritan writes, "This poor dog was dumped off - he is blind and in need of a rescue that will teach him how to adapt to surroundings. He is not aggressive at all, in fact when the other dogs jump on him for trying to eat, he just rolls over on his back and cries."

Boy is an outdoor dog without restrictions, and she has never witnessed him being aggressive at all. When answering whether the dog has bitten and/or snapped, she writes, "not that I have ever witnessed, all I have ever seen him do in a confronted is run the other way or roll over and lay on his back, until the other dogs leave him alone. I have never seen him even stand up for himself or fight back in anyway."

She gave us more details about Boy. "He is out in an open field where he was dumped and is just so scared, he follows another dog for guidance".  She writes that Boy looks healthy, but, "I am sure that he will need to be fully vetted".  
Boy's good samaritan wants us to know, "I am just hoping for this poor dog to be able to get into a rescue and stand a chance of being adopted by a loving, caring family. 

I do think he would be good with other dogs, because he stays with the other stray out there and uses him as guidance. I think it will take some time for him to adjust to new surroundings,since he is blind and some people don't realize it and throw things at him and scare him off when they see him. He is going to need a dedicated person to help him learn how to adapt. I would even be able to help or try to cover all of his vetting."

Snowy is an adorable little fellow whose owner wanted a dog her children could play with.  She recently started working and her children will be going to school, and she's unable to give Snowy the time and attention he needs.  She writes that he stays all day in the bathroom where he feels safe, even though he knows his way around the house.  She knows this is no life for a dog.  She would like to find him a home where they can give him time and attention!

His owner wants us to know that she "really loves animals that is why I have kept him for 2 years but its become very hard in my life to have time to be at home and spend with him. I really want him to find a home with someone who is going to love him and play with him. He is very playful and just wants attention. I feel very sad that I don't give him enough of that."
 

Snowy is an adorable and young little fellow and will have so much love to give!

​6/21/15 ​
I've just spoken with 
​Boy's
 contact.  She and her grandfather were
​ actually 
on their way home from feeding Boy and his companion.  She tells me his eye is getting worse...  


Boy is a very handsome fellow with a sad story.  He's living in a fenced yard at a property where the owners no longer live, but come 
​by ​
once a week or so.  A very kind young lady and her grandfather have been feeding Boy and the other dog with him, a female husky mix.  Boy has an eye injury that continues to get worse, and they are desperately hoping for rescue.  

Name:       Boy
Age:          About 10 years
Breed:       Bulldog
Sex:          Male (not neutered)
Location:  Thomasville, GA area

Vet Info:  Boy is not neutered and has had no vetting.  Boy weighs about 50 pounds.

Owner Info:  Boy is a very handsome fellow with a sad story.  He's living in a fenced yard at a property where the owners no longer live, but come 
​by ​
once a week or so.  A very kind young lady and her grandfather have been feeding Boy and the other dog with him, a female husky mix.  Boy has an eye injury that continues to get worse, and they are desperately hoping for rescue.  They are not able to afford medical care for Boy.  

Boy's good samaritan writes that he has always been "pretty much blind but he can see shadows and he has great hearing!"   A few weeks ago, "he hurt one of his eyes and it had got worse for him to live where he is at now. He is the sweetest dog ever he loves to be love and for someone to talk to him."

Boy is an outdoor dog with a fenced yard, and is good with men and women.  Boy and his companion dog sometimes argue over food because they have been without food for long periods of time.  She tells us Boy "will let you pet him while he is eating but has never had anyone take away its food."  She has never seen him with other dogs. 

Boy's good samaritan is desperately hoping for help for him. and wants us to know he loves attention!  "Boy dog is a very sweet bull dog white and he loves being love by people so please help me and boy dog....He is sweet and just needs a loving home to love him".

Precious Sister is a beautiful puppy whose owners feel she'd be better off in a different home.  They have her parents, and her father is territorial and is not doing well with her.  They are hoping for rescue for Precious Sister.

Name:     Precious Sister
Age:        DOB 3/10/2015
Breed:     Great Dane / Akita / Shepherd
Sex:         Female (not spayed)
Location:  Little Rock, AR area

Vet Info:  Precious Sister received her first set of puppy boosters on June 12th.  She is not spayed and has not been heartworm tested.  She weighs about 17 pounds.

Owner Info:  Precious Sister is a beautiful puppy whose owners feel she'd be better off in a different home.  They have her parents, and her father is territorial and is not doing well with her.  They are hoping for rescue for Precious Sister.

Her owner told us their vet said Precious Sister was blind when she was about five weeks old, but "she eventually opened her eyes around 8 weeks, film covers one eye completely and the other eye mostly, she does turn her head to look out that eye but she still runs into things."  Her owner adds that she will be a big dog!  

Precious Sister is an outdoor dog with a fenced yard, she is not housebroken or leash trained.  She is described as outgoing, and her owner says she loves to be talked to in a baby voice!  "She loves women, especially the sweet "baby talk" her tail just wags. She has done okay without problems with my husband."

Precious Sister is good with other dogs, but can be possessive of food.  Her owner tells us she has growled while eating with her brothers and sisters, and bit her brother over food, so she is fed separately.   

Her owner would love to be able to find her a home that would make her happy!

Update 2/18/16: Bama's owner also answered a few questions about Bama and told us he's made great progress and is no longer possessive over food!  She also told us that Bama has missing teeth and showed signs of gum disease, and that may be why he first had issues with eating.  
 
"He is better and I think its because he knows he will not miss a meal.  We feed him dry food in the morning and a mixture of wet and dry at night.  He seems a lot happier now then when he got here, when he goes outside he plays with the other dogs and loves to roll around in the grass on a warm day." ~ Owner

Original Information: Bama is an adorable and sweet fellow who was taken off the road by a good samaritan before he was hit by cars.  She tells us he appeared to not have been taken care of within the last eight to twelve months, and an owner was not found.  His good samaritan has taken him to the vet and cleaned him up, and is now contacting rescues to try to find him a wonderful home!

NOTE:  Bama is now confirmed neutered!  ​

​confirmed

Location:  Montgomery, AL area

Vet Info:  Bama is not neutered, but is scheduled for a neuter at the end of October
​ (Note:  Bama has now been neutered)​
.  He received a one-year rabies vaccine on October 3, 2015.  He had bloodwork done shortly after that, and all looks good!  Bama is heartworm negative. Bama weighs about 11 pounds.

Bama is an indoor dog with run of the house, he is housebroken and they gave us more details:  "He is kept indoors and crated at night or when we are gone from the house for more than 5 hrs."  Bama is not leash trained.   He appears completely blind.   

Bama is good with men, women, and children, and other dogs and cats.  He currently lives with three other dogs and three cats.  His good samaritan told us that he can be possessive of food, but only when he thinks someone around him is trying to get his food.  "Tends to be possessive with food but only when he thinks someone is around him trying to get his food, yes has growled/jumped up at my two big dogs like he was startled. Skin was not broken I believe he was startled has happened twice almost like he was sleeping relaxed and my other two like to play a lot and I think they startled him."

Bama has made progress with his good samaritan and is now eating well.  "Was unable to eat dry food when we brought him home but we have mixed it in with the can food and he is eating better with having it mixed and now he gets more dry mixed in with can is doing much better."

His good samaritan writes that he has adapted well, but they have an active house, and it may be too much for him.  "I think he has adapted well but with such an active household of 6 other pets and two children we may be too much for him and that is why we are reaching out....We only want the best for him and if our home wasn't so active we would probably keep him but it is evident that he is struggling with all the activity that we have."

Farkle's owners tell us his eyes are very foggy.  "He is not quite completely blind but I think he is very close",and they gave us more details about his health:  "Farkle has a slow growing tumor in his groin region, almost deaf, and severe anxiety.....As far as we know Farkle has always had anxiety problems. Anxiety medication does help him but he is not currently on it (it's a very cheap drug if a potential adopter asks). Farkle paces a lot and aimlessly walks around, panting, and finds himself in trouble when he thinks he is alone. Trouble including sitting in window sills and trying to get through them as well as eating garbage. He WILL chew through and escape wire kennels."

Farkle is an indoor dog with run of the house, he is housebroken and leash trained.  He is good with both men and women and male and female dogs.  His owners tell us he sometimes lives with another dog.  Farkle is not possessive of toys, treats, or food and has never bitten or snapped.  

Farkle's owners also want us to know that he's a real sweetheart, and loves to snuggle!  He'll make a great lap warmer!  "Farkle is an extremely happy go-lucky guy. In his last few years of life he will need a home in which someone can be with him most-all of the time due to his anxiety. He is a great snuggler! He prefers women but gets along with men as well. He doesn't mind other animals, but sometimes they don't like him."

Owner Info: Easy is a beautiful young hound mix who was found in a ditch and surrendered to a rescuer who is now looking for a loving home for her. She was adopted out once already but returned because the resident dog attacked her. Her rescuer no longer wants to adopt her out to inexperienced handlers. Easy’s current caregiver is a rescuer and boarder and has dogs and cats coming and going daily and Easy needs consistency.

 

Easy is an indoor dog who is crated. She is housebroken and leash-trained. She knows commands, sit, stay, and leave it. Easy is outgoing but has also become nervous and anxious.


Easy’s caregiver told us that since she has been back after being returned, she now is more easily frightened and has bitten other dogs out of fear.  They were not serious bites but her caregiver says, “with boarding animals I cannot risk even minor bites”. She also shows signs of anxiety and depression such as excessive salivating, whimpering, and pacing in the crate. Easy’s caregiver says this is due to the stress of having strange people and dogs in the home all the time. Easy has been started on anti-anxiety meds. Otherwise, her caregiver says Easy adapts well to new situations an places. She also says she is an awesome dog and “the most affectionate dog I’ve ever seen.”

Loki is a gorgeous fellow who is very sweet and loves people!  But Loki has severe separation anxiety, and his owner and his wife both have full time jobs and are not home most of the time.  They've tried crate training without success, and "strongly believe that he needs a home where the owners are home the majority of the time, whether they be retired or people that work from home."  Shelters have told them Loki would probably be euthanized because he would be too difficult to place.

Name:      Loki
Age:         5 years (approximately)
Breed:      German Shepherd Mix
Sex:          Male (confirmed neutered)
Location:  Pittsburgh, PA area

Vet Info:  Loki is confirmed neutered and microchipped.  He received a one year DHLPP vaccine and a one year rabies vaccine on March 28, 2015.  He is heartworm negative.  Loki weighs between 50 and 55 pounds. His owners write that he is completely blind.  "We believe that he was born blind. He can not see anything and his eyes have absolutely no reaction when the vet shines a light in them."

Loki is an indoor dog with run of the house, he is housebroken and leash trained.  He is good with both men and women, teenagers, and younger children.  He currently lives with two cats, but his owners write, "Loki will need to be introduced to new animals and supervised until he gets used to them, otherwise he may bite unfamiliar cats."  Loki knows Sit and Shake and sometimes, he will Stay!  

Loki is not possessive of toys, treats, or food, and has never shown aggression towards people.  His owners gave us more details about how he is with other dogs:  "He has never bitten or snapped at any person, therefore he has never broken skin. He however has bitten and snapped at rambunctious dogs because he can not tell if they are trying to play with him or trying to attack him. He has not broken their skin. Loki also bit our newest cat when we first brought her home. He did not break skin and after being monitored for a while, the two now live in harmony in our home."

Loki adapts well to new surroundings, and his owners write, "Loki adapts very quickly to new surroundings. We take him with us when we go to friends houses or to visit family sometimes. He will spend a few minutes learning the layout of the new place and then will get around just fine. He will also be fine around the animals that reside at the other homes unless the strange dog is super playful and bothers Loki."

Loki's owners want us to know he's a very sweet fellow and adores people!  "Loki is a very sweet dog that loves people. He would be a great dog for a home where he would not be left alone for long periods of time."

Owner Info:  Jack is a very handsome lab and cocker spaniel mix who has gone blind within the past 6 - 12 months.  His owner travels weekly for work and can no longer provide Jack with the time, attention, and stable environment that he now needs.  His owner writes that Jack lays in his room all day "and really needs someone who can keep him active and socialized".  He has reached out to several rescues, but received no response.

Jack is an indoor dog with run of the house, he is leash trained and housebroken, although his owner writes that he gets confused now that he is blind and may have an occasional accident.  Jack is described as outgoing, and is good with people of all ages and smaller male and female dogs.  He is not possessive of toys, treats, or food.  

When his owner first got Jack, Jack would snap with people touching his head, and he gave us more details:  "When I initially got him he had trust issues with people touching his head I approached and would give warning nips. He does not like to be kenneled, muzzled, or taken to the vet. In those cases he will snap out. He does not generally get along with large dogs....He does not do well in situations when another dog tried to dominate him."  

Jack's owner feels he adapts well to new situations, and writes, "Because of my increasing travel schedule over the past few years I have had to rely on several different people to watch Jack. He is accustomed to being introduced to new environments though now needs something stable."

Jack's owner wants us to know what a sweet and special boy he is!  "Jack is a very sweet animal who just wants to be loved."

NOTE:  ​
Jack's owner has written that he travels nationally for work and would be able to drive Jack to 
​the right home or rescue, even to the east coast!

Lucky is a beautiful girl who is trying to live up to her name!  Her owner's dog had puppies, and she had given Lucky to a neighbor who let her run loose in the neighborhood, so she took Lucky back a couple of weeks ago to find her a better home.  She posted Lucky on Craigslist for three months, and her owner tells us that during that time, Lucky suddenly went blind.  Her owner is disabled and cannot work.  She cannot afford the vet care Lucky needs, and tells us she doesn't have the means to keep her and teach her.  She writes that Lucky "just cries and I don't know how to help her".  She is desperately hoping 
​to find a new home or rescue

Lucky suddenly went blind during the time her owner had her posted on Craigslist, and she gave us more details about Lucky's blindness and health: "Her eyes look fine but she runs into the walls and doors. She hugs my legs when she walks or she follows the other dogs. Not sure if she is following by sent or not. Lucly legs are all sprawled out unable to keep control on my wood floors. She also paces the house and does circles...Her overall health is great. Great weight. Good coat. But diarrhea."  She also writes that Lucky "used to be so happy before blindness".  

Lucky's owner wants us to know Lucky is a very lovable and smart girl who just needs patience and love!  "She is very loveable. She loves to get her head stuck in the cat box, thought you might need to know that. Thank you for your help."

Scooby is a very handsome and sweet Great Dane. At only 9 months old, he has so much love to give and life to live. His owners found him as a stray and saved him from being a possible bait dog but are struggling to keep him where they are currently living. He needs a family who has the space for him and ability to give him the training that he needs. He is a very loving dog who needs someone to take a chance on him and give him the life he deserves.

If you can foster, please quickly email foster@blinddogrescue.com.  Thank you!

Name:    Scooby
Age:       9 months
Breed:    Great Dane
Sex:       Male (not neutered)
Location:  Lillington, NC

Vet Info:  Scooby is not neutered. He received the 5-way vaccine per his owner, but has not been vetted. He is 30 lbs.

Owner Info:  
Scooby's owners really want to find him a wonderful new family that can meet his needs of being a puppy! Scooby's owners reported that he seems to be able to see things close up. He is in good overall health and really deserves a chance at a great life! 

His owner says, "He is a very sweet and loving dog, he just needs a home that can afford proper training." His owners have been doing everything they can to help him but know that he needs more. They told us that, "We got him from a feed store where he was dropped off as a stray and 2 guys were trying to get him from store owner to use as a bait dog and we took him to save him from that fate." His owners are having a hard time keeping him where they are at and their landlord soon may not allow him there at all. Scooby has been placed on some rescue sites but so far no one has stepped up. Could you give this sweet guy a place to go?

Scooby is an indoor dog with the run of the house. He is not housebroken or leash-trained. He is very outgoing and playful, good with men, women, kids, dogs and cats. He currently lives with a cat and other dogs (both big and small) and does great with them! He isn't possessive over food, treats or toys. He hasn't shown aggression toward anyone or anything. His owners also say that he adapts really well to new situations. 

Take a look at his photos! He is strikingly handsome and would do great with someone with an active lifestyle. He really is a great dog who needs a second chance!  Could it be you?

Does anyone have room for this sweet fellow?

Zoey (also known as Winter) is a beautiful girl with a very sad history.  Her rescuer has a small rescue with 19 other dogs.  She writes that Zoey was found almost dead on her doorstep, and that they believe Zoey was, "Abandoned, beaten, starved, left for dead, we believe she was used as a bait dog, sexually assaulted, her teeth are all broken..."  

She is very concerned about Zoey and tells us, "This dogs life needs to be saved, we believe she needs more care than we have to offer. We nursed her back to eating & having her gain wait, but if someone does not truly have her vetted I don't know how much of a chance she will have We just don't get any funding to do this. We take care if the dogs on our own & don't have the money to get the care she needs."

Zoey is an indoor dog confined to one area of the house.  She is housebroken, but not leash trained.  She is good with women and children, and both male and female dogs, however Zoey is skittish due to her history, and her rescuer writes that she is kept separate from the other dogs.  "...she is kept separate because she had been through torture & is afraid. Sometimes she stays with a few of the dogs she gets along with but she is very skittish....She barks at some dogs because she was used as a bait dog. She especially does not like pit bulls, she is skittish of men. We believe she was also sexually abused."  

Zoey is not possessive of toys, treats, or food and has never bitten or snapped.  She is somewhat anxious, and her rescuer gave us more details:  "She has anxiety because of what abuse she went through, she needs to learn how to trust, very scared."  Zoey is partially blind, and her vision is getting worse.  Her rescuer writes, "She is definitely partially blind and getting worse.

Name:    Alaska
Age:       About 1.5 years 
Breed:    Husky or Samoyed Mix ?
Sex:       Female (confirmed spayed)
Location:  Dallas, TX area

Vet Info:  Alaska is confirmed spayed. She is current with vaccinations and has had a negative heartworm test, per her owner, but this has not been confirmed. Alaska had one eye removed when she was a puppy and only sees shadows with the other eye. She is also deaf. Alaska weighs about 45 pounds.  

Owner Info:  Alaska is a beautiful young girl with a sad story.  She was found on a busy highway. Her caregiver and her mother took her in and fell in love with her but they have a new landlord who does not want dogs and they have a short time (about 60 days) to find a new home for Alaska. 

Alaska is an indoor dog with run of the house.  She is housebroken and leash trained.  She is good with men, women, and children, and both male and female dogs, as well as cats. Alaska will sometimes growl at other dogs if they bump into her, because she can't see or hear them. However, she has never bitten or snapped at anyone. Her owner writes, "when she smells someone new, she will bark until she meets you." Alaska has not had training but she is a smart girl. Her owner told us, "we tap her under the chin and she knows that means ok or go."

Alaska was boarded at the vet's office for a little while but this became difficult because Alaska became stressed with all the other dogs in close quarters with her. The vet said in her opinion, Alaska should probably go to a home where she would be the only dog. Her owner is very upset about giving her up and says she is very healthy otherwise and well behaved. She just wants to love and be loved.

Location:  Baton Rouge, LA area

Vet Info:  We are told Red is up to date on his vaccines, but is not yet neutered.  Red is heartworm positive.  His contact gave us more information about his blindness: "This was a sudden onset of blindness. The inflammation to the optic nerve and surrounding areas was treated with steroids and he was given antibiotics. He has a follow up visit next week, but the eye specialists said that if he did not regain his sight after the treatment period he would most likely be permanently blind."  Red weighs about 40 pounds.

Owner Info:  We were contacted by another organization about Red, a young and very sweet male dog who has recently gone blind.  Red is currently in boarding.  They are desperately trying to find him a home or rescue as soon as possible because he cannot stay in boarding much longer!  They have had Red vetted and will also have him neutered prior to rescue, if rescue is found.  Red was originally found as a stray.

Red is a smart pup, and they tell us he's doing very well in adjusting to his disability.  They are desperately hoping we can help this sweet and happy fellow whose tail is always wagging!

Name:    Bobby

Age:      12.5 years

Sex:       Male (neutered)

Breed:    Australian Shepherd

Location:  Santa Fe,​ NM

 

Vet Info: Bobby is confirmed neutered. He had the three-year rabies and distemper vaccinations in August 2014. He had a Bordatella vaccination in November 2015. He last had a heartworm test in 2012, which was negative. Bobby had one eye removed about ten years ago due to glaucoma and is now almost completely blind in the other eye. He takes daily eye drops. Bobby is also almost deaf. He is on a renal diet and is stable. He is also on a thyroid medication trial. 


Owner Info: Bobby is a beautiful Australian Shepherd with a heartbreaking story. His owner loves him very much but can no longer afford to keep him. She is hoping he can find a comfortable, safe and loving home where his needs can be met. She does not want to surrender him to a shelter because she says that would be traumatizing for him. 


Bobby is an indoor dog with run of the house. He is micro-chipped. He is house-broken and leash-trained. He is well-trained and knows many commands, including sit, stay, lie down, up, back up, come, and eat. He is outgoing and good with men, women, and children, as well as cats. Bobby's owner has had rescued dogs and cats and Bobby has got along with them all. Bobby has never bitten anyone; however, his owner notes that herding dogs nip but he has never broken skin and never bitten a person. He may growl at another dog to tell him to respect his space but he has never been aggressive. Bobby's owner says he is much more guarded around other dogs since losing his eye but will give them plenty of warnings that he wants his space.

 

Bobby's owner says he adapts well to new situations and surroundings and she wants us to know that Bobby is very sweet-natured and loving. She says, "I would certainly keep him if I could afford. I love him so much that I'm willing to give him up to see that his needs are met and that he is loved." And also, "If I can't cover his medical bills or find a safe place for him, to euthanize him seems the most humane thing I can do."
