2/10/15 Update: We've heard from Popeye's caregivers and he's still looking for his forever home!  Popeye has had some setbacks with Obsessive Compulsive activities like circling for a long time and can be destructive if left alone, but his caregivers wrote that he's still a sweet boy!

---


11/19/14 Update: Popeye does well with the other dogs and cats in his home but his owner said he would really benefit from more one on one attention than she can give him.  Please continue to share his information!!


---


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


---


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


---


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

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


-----


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


Name:    Popeye

Age:       3 to 4 years

Sex:       Male (not yet neutered)

Breed:    American Staffordshire Terrier

Location: Central North Carolina area

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


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

Update 11/19/14: Track is doing well but he's still very much hoping for a family of his own!

Information:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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!!


4/17/15 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."

Mike is a very handsome mixed breed who was pulled from Animal Control by a smaller rescue.  He is blind in one eye.  He was in foster care for a while and his foster mom was working with him on commands to let him know that he was going to be touched on his blind side, and making great progress with him. But then she got orders (military) and he is back in the rescue's kennel, where he is very stressed and paces continually.  If unknowingly approached on his blind side, Mike will snap and try to bite, and once bit hard, so he needs a  foster or adoptive home without children.  His rescue writes that he is a really sweet boy and wants so badly to please, and just has a disability that needs understanding. They are very much hoping for a foster-based rescue with an experienced foster home who can help meet Mike's needs and who can help him blossom into the wonderful dog he tries so hard to be. 

Name:     Mike
Age:        5 years (estimated)
Breed:     Mixed (they write he looks like a mini St. Bernard)
Sex:         Male (confirmed neutered)
Location: Columbia, SC area

Vet Info:  Mike is confirmed neutered and up to date on vaccines.  He is next due for his rabies vaccine on 5/20/2015.  Mike is heartworm negative.  He weighs about 40 pounds.

Owner Info:  
Mike is an outdoor dog with a fenced yard and is not housebroken.  He is leashed trained.  His rescue writes that he is good with other dogs, but not cats. He does have a prey drive and is a more dominant temperament. They gave us more detail about how he is with other dogs:  "Mike has been great with all dogs, and he has been introduced to over a hundred since being here at rescue.  He is always the top dog though.  One larger dog (much larger than him) gave him the eye once and Mike put him in his place instantly.  The larger dog never messed with him again.  So if confronted, Mike will react.  But that is the only time he has had to and they never had a problem again.  He plays really well with the other dogs, but also does his own thing a lot in the play yard.  I think he is alone a lot because he is so consumed with pacing.  If we can get him to stop pacing the exercise yard, he will actually play.  He LOVES WATER.  He has a kiddie pool that he flops around in and it is so cute.  His foster mom actually moved away last night and came to say goodbye to him.  He jumped right up to be hugged immediately and you can tell he adores her.  I would say that he would do best with dogs that are bigger than him (at least not toy breed) just because he is more of the boss dog. He has been around a lot of small dogs too, but never in a home environment so I think if they ever got into a squabble, Mike could do some damage.  But I could be completely wrong too...I'm just overly cautious maybe.  I do hope someone is able to step up for him. He has so much potential if given the right chance." They also tell us that he's very loyal and will bond quickly!

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."

3/19 Khalua's rescuer sent these new pictures.  Isn't she beautiful!?! 

Khalua is a beautiful blind Cocker Spaniel who was abandoned at a church.  She was saved by a good samaritan who rescues many dogs in Puerto Rico and does her best to try to find them placement. 
 
Name:    Khalua
Age:       4 years (estimated)
Breed:    Cocker Spaniel
Sex:        Female (not spayed)
Location:  Puerto Rico

Vet Info:  Khalua is not spayed.  She is up to date on vaccines including rabies and is heartworm negative.  Khalua's rescuer writes that the vet suspects she has glaucoma and that she is completely blind.  She is trying to raise money to take Khalua to an eye specialist and have her spayed.  Khalua weighs approximately 25 pounds.

Owner Info:  Khalua is a beautiful blind Cocker Spaniel who was abandoned at a church.  She was saved by a good samaritan who rescues many dogs in Puerto Rico and does her best to try to find them placement.  
As of 3/17, Khalua is in foster care.  She is an indoor dog confined to one area of the house.  She is not housebroken but is leash trained.  Khalua also has a skin allergy, but other than that, her rescuer writes that her overall health is very good.

They've only had Khalua a short time, but they gave us details about how she is with other dogs:  "I didn't know her very well yet but when I rescued her she was in my car with 2 other dogs and she was ok. In the clinic she's been normal with other dogs. She was a little anxious when I rescued her (which they believe is due to all the changes she has gone through)...  but when I'm with her she's loving and receptive. Since today she's with a foster family with 3 dogs and the lady told me that she was stumble into the house which is normal but  tomorrow we will talk again and will let you know how she's doing."  Here is her update from 3/18:  "About Khalua, she's doing very well with the other dogs in her foster home."

Khalua has shown no aggression and is not possessive of toys, treats, or food.  Her rescuer is hoping Khalua can have a better life here!  She tells us, "I'm a dog rescuer in Puerto Rico and have many other rescued dogs in different foster cares / boarding.  I assumed that Khalua was dumped for her disability. I would like to bring her the opportunity to have a new happy life that I cannot bring her because I don't have the space/economic resources to take care of her. She deserves a better life."

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."

 pounds.

Owner Info:  Mandy Moore is a beautiful girl who was saved from a high kill shelter with no rescue or adoption traffic.  Her rescuer knew she would not make it if she left her behind.  She is not able to keep Mandy Moore as she is an independent rescuer and pulls and fosters many dogs, and always has many dogs at home.  She is very much hoping for placement for Mandy Moore.      

Mandy Moore is an outdoor dog with a fenced yard, she is not housebroken or leash trained.  She is a friendly little girl and is good with people of all ages, male and female dogs, and cats, and currently lives with several other dogs.  Mandy Moore is not possessive of toys, treats, or food, and has never shown any aggression.  

Her rescuer writes that Mandy Moore is partially blind, and that she follows her voice or whistle.  She also tells us Mandy looked disoriented when she first brought her home, and the vet told her Mandy is partially blind.  Mandy is now gaining weight.  Her rescuer is very much hoping for a better situation for Mandy than she can provide.  "Hope your group can help provide her a better housing situation since I have many dogs that I take care and foster that I get nervous thinking that something can happen or she can get hurt".

7/31   Lola is a beautiful girl whose owner recently became a mother of two, and caring for Lola and her special needs has become overwhelming.  She knows Lola deserves a home where she can get more attention.
If you can foster Lola, please email foster@blinddogrescue.com

Name:     Lola
Age:        1 1/2 years
Breed:     Pit bull / Lab Mix
Sex:         Female (not spayed)
Location:  Fort Myers, FL area

Vet Info:  Lola is not spayed.  She is up to date on her vaccines including rabies, and heartworm negative.  Lola weighs about 45 pounds.

Owner Info:  Lola is a beautiful girl whose owner recently became a mother of two, and caring for Lola and her special needs has become overwhelming.  She knows Lola deserves a home where she can get more attention.

Lola is an indoor dog confined to one area of the house, she is housebroken but not leash trained.  Lola is good with men and women, but her owner recommends a home without small children.  Lola has never bitten or snapped.  Her owner tells us that Lola does mouth hands when she is trying to figure a new person out, but has never caused harm.  Her owner also tells us that Lola loves attention and will bark at strangers, but only because she wants them to notice her!    Lola is not possessive of toys, treats, or food.

Lola is partially blind.  Her owner writes, "her eyes slightly dialate, she runs into things and can see things further than 2feet away, if u toss a toy or treat etc."  She is also gluten intolerant and is fed an organic grain-free food.  

Lola's owner gave us more information about how she is with other dogs and more details about her personality:  
"As for her temperament with other dogs, i left that unchecked because i have never seen her interact with another dog. The neighbors dog got loose one time and was rather aggressive, lola was on the lanai and she just barked and raised all her fur. I know whenever the neighbor dog barks, she barks back. So thats about it.

She never used to bark until i had my daughter. Now she barks at ppl she doesnt know at our door, or if she hears people in their yards. i assume she thinks they are intruders.


If u r on lolas level she will sort of walk all over you, she seems unaware or feet etc and will step on them. She does ok with my 4yr old but he is almost 4ft tall. Any children smaller than that i wouldnt recommend. Also we did have a cat, and they played but lola would eventually get rough. It was almost like she thought the cat was her toy. The cat wld find places to get away when it had enough.


We do have a very long tie for lola so she can have run of the yard and play with my son, but its tough in florida with the heat to ever have her out for very long. Also she doesnt like wet grass so she prefers being in here in rainy season. If i were to undo the gate, she will go to the master room but wld not want to be in the living room. Shes timid of terrain she doesnt have memorized and with baby jumpers, high chairs and rocking chairs constantly being shifted, she has grown to dislike the common areas.
"

Lola's owner wants us to know that
"
She is a great dog with a sweet personality. She is extemely loving. Unfortunately I have a son with developmental delays and a new born, i can not give the dog the attention and affection ane deserves. I would see her best in a home with grown children or a childless home. She would be best if accepted by her new owners as a member of their family where she can be cuddled and loved.

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!

Phone: (973) 454-7851

Email: OS@blinddogrescue.com
Phone BDRA: 1-877-254-6301  x4

Age:      12 years

Sex:       Female (not spayed)

Breed:    Chihuahua

Location:  Corpus Christi, Texas

 

Vet Info: Rellie is not spayed and is not current with vaccinations. Her rabies, distemper, and bordatella vaccines were due in February, 2015. She had a negative heartworm test in 2014 but was also due for heartworm and fecal tests in February, 2015. Her vet’s office had no information about her vision issues. Rellie weighs 3 pounds.  Her owner writes, “Other than being blind Rellie is completely healthy, never had any puppies but is missing some teeth.”

 

Owner Info: Rellie is an adorable Chihuahua whose owner can no longer take care of her the way she deserves. She recently started college and her mother adopted a baby and now they are moving and their new home will not allow pets. They have had to re-home their other two dogs but have not had any luck finding a new home for Rellie.

 

Rellie is an indoor dog confined to one area of the house. She is not housebroken but she is leash-trained. Rellie can be nervous. When asked for further information how she is with people, Rellie’s owner said she is good with people. She does not snap at anyone unless she is being poked at constantly or not left alone after she has given warnings. She used to get nervous around small children, however over the years she has not been in much contact with them especially since she became blind so I cannot tell for sure if they still make her nervous but the possibility is a bit high, she does not snap at children but she will growl to give a warning. After some time she might warm up to the kids if they are not too rough, it is not that she dislikes kids just that she is somewhat scared of them. I am not sure why, she had a home for about two years before she came into my possession so it might be from that time that she became that way.Rellie is not possessive of toys, treats, or food. Her owner says it takes time for her to warm up to another dog. She’ll keep her distance and hide but once she is comfortable she is not aggressive at all.

 

Rellie’s owner said Rellie started bumping into things around a year ago. The vet did not find anything wrong and a few months later she could not see. Now when you call her she doesn't have much sense of direction. But she learns her surroundings and manages to figure out her way around. She wants us to know Rellie is a great dog who deserves a wonderful home for her older years!

Azia is a beautiful little girl whose owner is not able to care for her in the way that she needs and deserves.  Her owner writes that Azia "is a wonderful companion, but I lost my job and can not afford to give her the care she so desperately deserves.  I want her to have the best quality of life possible as I can no longer provide this for her...Please help."  


Name:    Azia
Age:       6 1/2 years
Breed:    American Foxhound
Sex:      Female (not spayed)
Location:  Baltimore, MD

Vet Info:  Azia is not spayed and is not up to date on vaccines.  She was tested for HW in April 2014.  It was negative and her owner was given one dose of preventative at that time.  She has not received further preventative there.  Azia weighs between 45 - 55 pounds.

Owner Info:  Azia is a beautiful little girl whose owner is not able to care for her in the way that she needs and deserves.  Her owner writes that Azia "is a wonderful companion, but I lost my job and can not afford to give her the care she so desperately deserves.  I want her to have the best quality of life possible as I can no longer provide this for her...Please help."

Azia is an indoor dog with run of the house, she is housebroken and leash trained.  Azia knows the commands "heel" and "no", and loves to be told, "that's my girl!" when she is "really being good."  Azia is described as shy, good with men, women, and cats, and currently lives with two cats her owner is also trying to rehome.  

Her owner gave us more details about how she is with other dogs:  "Azia has not been around many dogs so her personality around other dogs is questionable.  She once ran our neighbor's dog back into their yard so I would be on the safe side and say no she is not particularly friendly with other dogs.  I have never taken her to a dog park or really exposed her to other dogs unfortunately.  But now that she is vision impaired, I think her personality has gotten even more calmer around everything".  She is not possessive of toys, treats, or food.

Azia has shown aggression in the past, but her owner tells us it's not normal for her and was not shown consistently.  "She may be aggressive out of fear but that is not typical of her character. She loves belly rubs and is playful at times. She loves to be cuddled or lay next to you on a couch, bed or rug.  When we first moved to our apartment, getting use to the change, she did not like anyone to get close to me. But now that her vision is impaired, I think she may be scared and a little unpredictable until she is comfortable."

Azia's owner believes she is partially blind and that it might be getting worse.  She tells us Azia has cloudy pupils, but she cannot afford to have her properly evaluated. "I believe she is scared because she does not know what is happening to her". She also tells us Azia's teeth are sensitive, but overall, her health is OK.

Azia's owner wants us to know that "she is truly a good dog and companion, it saddens me to have to give her up and this will haunt me for awhile. I just hope that she can be well taken care of as I will try not to worry. Pictures of Azia below are when earlier prior to a move but in the past 2 years. Thank you for your consideration...I really hope your organization can find the right fit for her, she deserves to be happy."

Age:       Will be 8 in March, 2015
Sex:        Male (confirmed neutered)
Breed:    Tibetan Spaniel
Location:  Hillsboro, OR

Vet Info:  Charlie is confirmed neutered.  He is not up to date on vaccines and has not had a heartworm test.  Charlie weighs 10 pounds.  

Owner Info:  Charlie is an adorable fellow whose owner's living situation and finances are changing drastically and beyond her control.  She feels Charlie doesn't have quality of life with her anymore as he is spending too much time alone, and it isn't good for him.

Charlie was rescued from death row, and had a difficult life before his current owner adopted him.  He has been with his current owner since March, 2014.

Charlie is completely blind, and his owner took him to a specialist regarding his eyesight.  "We took Charlie to a specialist who said the connection between his brain and eyes was severed, so although it 'looks' like he can see, Charlie is completely blind".  Charlie is also deaf.

Charlie is an indoor dog with run of the house, he is not housebroken or leash trained. "Due to Charlies handicaps, he wears a diaper indoors. Also due to his handicaps, he doesn't do well on a leash, so he has his own stroller."

Charlie is good with men and women, but his owner tells us he'd prefer a home without children.  Charlie currently lives with three other dogs and two cats.  He is not possessive of toys, treats, or food, but will try to bite other dogs if he feels threatened.  "He's tried to bite when he feels threatened, but not being able to see, he's never made contact. All of his teeth are wore down from being locked in a crate his whole life and trying to chew his way out.... Also, he gets 'grumpy' if he has to poop."

Charlie's owner writes that he has difficulty adapting to new situations, but "given 'time' to be reassured new people can be trusted, and providing his surroundings don't change (so he doesn't smash into everything)' he does fine."

Charlie's owner loves him very much and only wants what is best for Charlie!  "Apart from his handicaps, and need of a diaper when in doors, he's an absolute sweetheart, so full of love and gratitude for being alive!"

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!  ​

Name:      Bama
Age:        Unknown
Breed:     Poodle
Sex:         Male (
​confirmed 
neutered)
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.   

Owner Info:  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!

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."

Anxiety medication does help him but he is not currently on it (it's a very cheap drug if a potential adopter asks).

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."

He doesn't mind other animals, but sometimes they don't like him."

Sosa is a beautiful and fun little girl who was saved from an owner who could not care for her properly, and where she had to stay in a crate the vast majority of the time.  Sosa's rescuer had always intended on finding Sosa a new home or rescue, and is very much hoping 
​we can help her find placement
.  She has had Sosa for about two weeks.  

Name:    Sosa
Age:       1 - 2 years old
Breed:    Mixed
Sex:       Female (spayed per rescuer, not confirmed)
Location: Nashville, TN area

Vet Info:  Sosa is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and heartworm negative per her rescuer, but this has not yet been confirmed.  Sosa weighs about 40 pounds.

Owner Info:  Sosa is a beautiful and fun little girl who was saved from an owner who could not care for her properly, and where she had to stay in a crate the vast majority of the time.  Sosa's rescuer had always intended on finding Sosa a new home or rescue, and is very much hoping 
​we can help her find placement
.  She has had Sosa for about two weeks.  

Sosa is an indoor dog who is crated.  She is housebroken, but not leash trained.  Sosa is a sweet and friendly girl, and is good with people of all ages, male and female dogs, and cats.  She currently lives with three dogs and one cat.

Sosa is not possessive of toys, treats, or food, but does play bite when playing.  Her rescuer writes, "I have never seen nor heard about Sosa biting or snapping at anyone as an act of aggression, but she play bites when she gets hyper. She is usually very gentle when she does it. The only time it has ever been an issue is when she gets too worked up and won't stop play biting without being pulled away and told "No!" very firmly. I think a little training and a little growing up time will easily fix this issue."

Sosa adjust well to new situations and her rescuer gave us more details:  "Yes, she seems to adapt very quickly. She has moved from home to home a few times, so she is accustomed to being in new environments. It only took her a few hours to start acting comfortable in my home once I brought her here, and within a day or so she had pretty much learned the layout of the house and how to interact with my other dogs."

Sosa is not completely blind, but does see better in well lit areas. Her rescuer also told us more about Sosa's health.  "I do not think Sosa is not completely blind as she definitely does better in well lit areas, however, I do believe that her vision is minimal at best because, even with plenty of light, she still runs into things sometimes. I do not know for certain what caused her visual impairment, but the person with whom she was living previously told me that she thought it may be due to Sosa being hit by a car at some point in her life. Again though, I do not know this for certain....Sosa is very thin, but eats very well and has never (at least not any time recently) been in a situation where she was not being fed. She makes odd sounds when she eats or pants which makes me think she may have some kind of windpipe damage or issue from the past. Luckily, it does not seem to affect her ability to eat, drink, or breathe, or have any impact on her quality of life."

Sosa's rescuer wants us to know she's a very sweet little girl who deserves a loving family and home of her own!  "Sosa is a very sweet girl with lots of love to give. She would make a great family pet, and is not at all difficult to take care of even though she has a visual impairment. This pup has been through a lot in her short life so far, so I am very eager to find the perfect forever home where she can get all the affection and play time she needs and deserves."

Timmy is a very handsome 8 year old Wire Fox Terrier. He was originally from a breeder as a puppy. He went blind about 3 years ago and his owner is finding it challenging to give him the time and attention he needs and deserves due to a change in their situation. He is a very sweet and well-adjusted dog who loves other animals and to play. He just needs someone who can spend the time with him that he really needs.

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)

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."

Name:     Camila
Age:      3 years
Breed:    Dogo Argentino
Sex:       Female (spayed per rescuer, not confirmed)
Location: Mexico City area, Mexico

Vet Info:  Camila is spayed and up to date on vaccines per her rescuer, but this has not been confirmed.  She weighs approximately 100 pounds.  Her rescuer tells us she was born with glaucoma in one eye, and the other eye is healthy.  Other than glaucoma, her rescuer tells us she is a healthy dog.

Owner Info:  Camila is a beautiful Dogo Argentino located in Mexico.  Her owners divorced, and asked an independent rescuer to help them find her a new home.  No home was found for three months, and the independent rescuer then took guardianship of Camila as her owners would have had her euthanized.  She writes, "Camila is a noble, caring and young dog that doesn't deserve to die.  She's a living soul that should be valued and given the opportunity of finding the right family that will give her love and care."  Camila may not have much of a chance of adoption in Mexico, and her rescuer is now desperately hoping to find rescue/adoption for Camila in the US or Canada!  Transport has not been discussed.

Camila is an outdoor dog with a fenced yard, she is housebroken but not leash trained.  She is good with men, women, and children, and is not possessive of toys, treats, or food.  Camila is a smart girl with lots of energy and lots of love!  Her rescuer gave us more details about Camila and her needs:  "Camila hasn’t received any training and needs discipline. She’s super intelligent, understanding and has nervous energy because she needs physical exercise.  I don’t take her out of the garden area....Camila needs the proper introduction to gradually know a dog or she will bite out of fear.  She isn’t aggressive she does it out of fear.  She’ll bite and let go. When Camila feels insecure, fear, strange odors or loud noises that are unknown she’ll bite.  She reacts out of fear but with love and discipline she would be a normal dog....Camila is a dog that adapts well to people, new places and spaces.  She’s smart and require much love and room and demands lots of hugs, kisses and play. "

Camila's rescuer is very much hoping we can help find Camila a happy home!  "What I desire the most is a happy home for Camila.  She deserves a good home and I haven’t been able to find her a family in Mexico that wants her.  I can’t keep her as I don’t have the space as an independent rescuer."

Name:     Molly
Age:        13 years
Breed:     Pit Bull Mix
Sex:        Female (confirmed spayed)
Location:  Tacoma, WA area

Vet Info:  Molly is confirmed spayed.  She is up to date on vaccines per her owner, but this has not yet been confirmed.  Molly has had three Grand Mal seizures since being with her owners, and is now on Phenobarbital for seizure control.  She appears completely blind (she may see shadows), and her vet discharge papers stated, "Lenticular Sclerosis" and "Primary Ocular Blindness".  Molly is also almost completely deaf.  Molly weighs about 50 pounds.

Owner Info:  Molly is an adorable and sweet girl who was saved from a home where she was kept chained to a refrigerator.  She was in horrible condition when she was picked up, and has now been vetted and is feeling better.  Her good samaritans had always intended to get her healthy and into rescue where she could be adopted as they are not able to keep her.  They have tried several local rescue organizations with no luck due to her disabilities, and they are very much hoping we can help her find a new home!  They have had Molly for about two weeks.

Molly is an indoor dog confined to one area of the house, she is housebroken and leash trained.   

Molly is good with men and women, and seems to respond well to higher pitched voices.  "Since Molly is almost completely deaf, we have not found her to respond to any commands. She does seem to respond to higher pitched voices, particularly female. When she hears my girlfriend's voice, she will wag her tail and turn to where she was called from."  She is good with both male and female dogs, and currently lives with two other dogs.  Molly is not possessive of toys, treats, or food, and has not bitten or snapped.

Her owners gave us more details about how she's adjusting:  "It has taken Molly a great deal of time to get used to her room in the house. We have tried to remove all potentially harmful objects, and soften/pad any sharp corners, but she continuously bumps into he surroundings, and doesn't seem to have completely mapped out the area yet after two weeks with us. After her time in the emergency room, she seemed to have to relearn her environment completely."

Molly does have some health issues that her owners have described:  "Molly came to us smelling very strongly of urine, and her back had multiple scabbed areas in her fur that sloughed off during her first bath. Those areas are now growing back with fur.  Her gait is a bit wobbly, particularly in her rear end. She is almost completely deaf. She has had 3 Grand Mal seizures, and is now on Phenobarbital for seizure control.  She can be very anxious, with constant barking and whining without attention, particularly at night. She has a Rx of Trazadone to be taken as needed for anxiety. In addition, because Molly is an older dog, she needs to be let out to urinate every 3-4 hrs, and will bark when she needs to go out."

Even with her history, Molly is a very sweet girl who just wanted to be loved!  "Molly is a very sweet girl, and we feel we absolutely did the right thing by taking her out of the environment she was in before. Unfortunately, her care requires more than we are able to provide. Thank you for your help and consideration."

Name:     Joplin
Age:       9-10 years (approximately)
Sex:        Female (confirmed spayed)
Breed:   Beagle
Location:  Boone, NC

Vet Info:  Joplin is confirmed spayed and up to date on vaccines and HW negative per her Vet. Joplin is also on preventative HW medication.Joplin weighs about 23 pounds. Joplin's owner writes, "We've had her examined by 3 different vets, and have also shown our dog trainer a video of her behavior. All four have concluded that Joplin's blindness occurred suddenly instead of gradually over a period of time. In all likelihood, her prior owners overdosed her on Ivermectin (a heartworm chemical)... If not administered in exact dosages, Ivermectin can cause immediate blindness."
 Her owner gave us more details about Joplin's eyes: "
No evidence of cataracts.. Both retinas undamaged and intact.. Optic nerves healthy and intact.. Both eyes reactive to light.. Eye pressure normal in both eyes.. No clouding or injury to either eye. 
"  She also tells us Joplin  has a "loose ACL in her right knee" and is treated with Tramadol and Deramax to keep her knee comfortable.  
 
Owner Info:  Joplin is a sweet girl who needs a home where she can be the only dog. Due to her loss of sight, the Vet feels that Joplin panics and reacts aggressively toward other dogs as a neurological reaction to losing her sight suddenly and is NOT due to being aggressive for the sake of being aggressive. Her owner writes, "She perceives noises and footsteps around her as threats ... when she can't identify where the threat is, she resorts to "panic / defense" mode, and will literally attack air or an empty space. Knowing that she lost her sight due to irresponsibility breaks my heart, and I've come to understand that her "aggression" or sudden outbursts are due to something that was beyond her control. The vet is confident that if she could still see, she wouldn't react in this manner. Our dog trainer and veterinarians all agree that "Joplin" would thrive in a home with no other dogs ... She has lived with a cat, and does NOT exhibit this behavior with him. In fact, she had no reaction at all to the cat when he first arrived to our home (he was adopted). "

Joplin is an indoor dog with the run of the house. She is housebroken, leash-trained and knows commands like, "sit, no, stay, outside, come."  Joplin is nervous but mainly due to not being comfortable around other dogs. She is good with men, women, teenagers and cats. Her owner writes, "Joplin has never intentionally aggressed or lunged at a human. We've been accidentally nipped / bitten due to being in the middle of the dogs when they begin fighting. It's broken skin a few times. But again, when "Joplin" lunges toward another animal that she perceives as a threat, we can literally place our hands around her snout or pick her up and move her away from the fight. She has NEVER bitten us intentionally."  

Her owner also tells us, "If Joplin were placed in a home with no other dogs, she'd adapt extremely quickly. We were amazed at how she learned the geography of the house, and location of things like crates, water bowls, beds, and furniture. Joplin is an otherwise healthy dog, and does enjoy playing .. I will frequently take her to another room and play with her, and she totally enjoys it. I want to make sure Joplin has every chance in the world to be in a stress-free home in which she can relax and enjoy her senior years. I don't want to fail her."

Joplin's owner also wants us to know that, "I will gladly assist in transporting Joplin, and will do anything possible to find her a suitable environment. Please be assured that we have loved her, and have always understood that her behavior is something she can't help."

Skittles's owner says his blindness happened very suddenly.  "I believe he is completely blind. It was a very fast onset of whatever caused it. He also seems to have lost his sense of smell."  She also wants us to know he's a very sweet fellow who loves his fruits and vegetables!  "He is a very sweet boy, a little mischievous, at times. Loves to steal paper or napkins from you if he can. Although because he can no longer see I don't think that will continue to be a problem. He always want someones attention and he loves veggies and some fruits. He used to be great at catch, but can no longer do that."

Hooper is a very handsome fellow who was rescued from a rural county shelter in July.  His rescuer has Labs and experience with blind dogs, and couldn't leave him at the shelter.  She would keep him, but her Chocolate Lab is afraid of Hooper, and Hooper is now reactive towards him.  Her Lab hides in the bedroom all the time.  She is very much hoping 
​to find a loving new home
 for Hooper.

Name:    Hooper
Age:       9 years (estimated)
Breed:    Labrador Retriever
Sex:       Male (confirmed neutered)
Location: Atlanta, GA

Vet Info:  Hooper is confirmed neutered and up to date on vaccines.  He is heartworm negative and on heartworm preventative.  Hooper weighs about 90 pounds.

Owner Info:  Hooper is a very handsome fellow who was rescued from a rural county shelter in July.  His rescuer has Labs and experience with blind dogs, and couldn't leave him at the shelter.  She would keep him, but her Chocolate Lab is afraid of Hooper, and Hooper is now reactive towards him.  Her Lab hides in the bedroom all the time.  She is very much hoping 
​to find a loving new home
 for Hooper.

Hooper is an indoor dog with run of the house, he is housebroken and leash trained.  Hooper is a smart fellow, and his owner tells us, "He has been completely housebroken since the moment he arrived. I have a dog door that has stairs down to the patio and he figured it out and uses it."  Hooper also knows the commands, Sit and Lie Down.  

Hooper is described as outgoing, and is good with people of all ages, male and female dogs, and cats.  "He is interested in the cats, and gets a little mouthy but they just move and he can't find them. He doesn't actively hunt them."  

Hooper is not possessive with toys, treats or food, and the only aggression he's ever shown is to her Chocolate Lab.  She writes that her Lab "didn't really take to him and would growl and Hooper got reactive. But that's the only situation. I just took in my father and his Chihuahua and Hooper was very interested but wasn't aggressive or anything.   I took Hooper to our local farmer's market and kids came over to pet him and he met some friendly dogs and he was just great."  Hooper has never bitten or snapped.

Hooper's owner tells us he adapts well to new situations.  "He's careful but not super timid. Once he's got the environment he moves confidently."

Hooper is completely blind, and her vet said it was most likely detached retinas.  He is in no pain.  Other than a few little lipomas, as expected for a Lab his age, Hooper is in good health.  His owner writes,  "His hips seem fine. He teeth were in very good shape and he was neutered. This dog was obviously loved, well socialized, and raised indoors."

She wants us to know what a very special fellow Hooper is!  "He is just awesome. Sweet, loves attention, rides well in the car, loves to swim - all the usual Labby stuff."
