Name: Molly

Sex: Female (altered)

Breed: Doxie/spaniel/terrier mix?

Age: 10 years approximately

Location: Tunnel Hill, GA

 

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

 

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


Updates:


4/11/15  We've heard from Molly's owner and Molly is still waiting for a new home!  
"I have had her for 3 years and she was estimated between 8 and 12 then, so she is to the point it would be more like a hospice rescue. I would love for a sanctuary to take her but I think that is a dream. She lives with other cats and dogs but she can be ugly at times with them.  Thank you so much!"

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

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."

10/20 I have another update from Buffalo's owner that I wanted to share.  If you'd like any more information about Buffalo, please ask!  

In the email below, Buffalo's owner is answering questions about whether Buffalo has had any recent seizures, if he still has fluid in his brain, and what his issues currently are:

"Buffalo has not had seizures in a long time. And you are right, it would take another MRI to see if he still had too much spinal fluid in the ventricles of his brain. So, I guess the meds are working the way they are supposed to (but I cannot say that his sight is any better). He LOVES to be outside, playing and playing. Sometimes when we take him in he fusses and cries, but then we put him down by his water dish or food dish and he focuses on water/food. When I say that he "fusses," he makes a lot of noise, and then he cries, and then he stops. He's never wanted to bite any of us; my husband says he "throws a tantrum." I'd say wanting to stay out and play forever and ever and guarding his food dish are his ONLY "issues" other than his sight problem. I did give him a complete bath once--and I think he should be sedated for a bath. He loves to play in water outside--sprinkler system or his water dish--but a soap bath all over is frightening to him. He has in-the-sink with sprayer underbelly, feet, legs, and butt baths--doesn't like them, but endures them.

Buffalo is such a loving puppy--cuddly and he loves to be petted, have his tummy scratched, and his ears scratched especially. He's as cute as can be and loves to show off leaping and bouncing--he almost turns cartwheels. I am pretty sure that everything unfamiliar is still a problem for him, so he has to get used to "things" being where they are, but he loves all people. He has learned, "No," and "Buffalo come," and "careful!" or "easy, Buffalo!"--meaning that there is something he cannot see and he might consider changing direction--bushes or an incline or step or something. While he turns flips outside, he has to relearn walking on slick surfaces every time he encounters them--floors, tiles, newspapers even.

When I look at what I've written, I realize what a special person it would take to keep Buffalo moving in an optimum direction and to commit to his care and who wouldn't be afraid to receive his love in return. I've talked with my vet about this; we have a goal of Buffalo being a loving pet for someone--someone who will be firm with him when he cannot have his way--and who will be loving and affectionate, too. You can actually fall into those big, pretty brown eyes. His soul is so easy to touch; it's like falling in love…."


10/10 Here is an update on sweet Buffalo!   Such a precious face! 

Buffalo's owner is answering how much he currently weighs and if he is housebroken:

"Buffalo is a mini-Goldendoodle; he weighs about 16 pounds at this time, and he's a slim dog. We take him out on a schedule (schedules are best for Buffalo), and if we stick to schedule, we don't have accidents. If we don't stick to his schedule, we do.

Buffalo is doing better--makes me happy--My husband says that he doesn't "know if it's the meds or that he's getting more mature. He does still guard his food bowl. The vet said that he needed more doggie exposure, and we've companioned him with a very small, busy Cocker puppy. Mostly, they enjoy bark-fests for five min per day in the mornings. Later in the day, they are just there as a presence for the other, until Miss Cocker goes home in the evening. But he didn't guard his food before this pup came to keep him company. He does eat alone; she can't snatch his food."

9/14 You may remember the adorable little puppy, Buffalo, who was originally posted at the end of July.  His owner has been working with a neurologist and feels Buffalo is now ready for rescue!   

Briefly, a recent MRI showed a lot of fluid in the brain ventricles, but they feel no surgery is necessary, and Buffalo is on medication that will hopefully remove the excess fluid, and may also help his vision.  He has had seizures in the past and is somewhat uncoordinated, but this is improving.

His owner writes, "Today, we were all outside with little smart phone cameras trying to take some video of Buffalo running around full tilt. Zip, Zip…Big figure 8s and sailing jumps through the air--and not smacking into anything--just showing off. It's not just that he's blind and cute and all, but what he can DO while being blind. All we got were a lot of blurs and trees and grass; funny video, but no Buffalo in it."

---------- Information ----------


Buffalo is an adorable and very sweet puppy whose owner wants him to have a loving home with someone who has the resources to care for him.  

Name:    Buffalo
Age:       DOB 5/26/14
Breed:    Goldendoodle
Sex:       Male (not neutered)
Location: Southwest Colorado

Vet Info:  Buffalo has had his first set of puppy boosters and will be due for distemper and parvo vaccines on August 12th.  The person I spoke with at the vet's office commented that he is the sweetest thing!!  Buffalo weighs 6.6 pounds.

Owner Info:  Buffalo is an adorable and very sweet puppy whose owner wants him to have a loving home with someone who has the resources to care for him.  Buffalo was born at his owner's home. She wrote, "His mom injured him when he was two weeks old--a head injury, and now we notice that Buffalo has limited vision. His nose is so compensatory that we didn't notice any disability for a long time."  She also gave more details -  "Often, he'll just sit and watch my husband at work at his desk, following his movements, but there are depth-perception issues, and both eyes (that look quite normal) are affected to some extent."  Other than his blindness, Buffalo is a healthy puppy, and he lives with three other dogs.  His owner feels he will adapt well to new situations because "Buffalo loves everybody!"   He's just a happy and playful little fellow who doesn't know that he has any vision problem!

Dale is a blind dachshund who is fear-aggressive and having trouble adjusting to the new baby in the house. His family has tried training with a behaviorist but they are worried about a possible safety risk as their son gets older. 

Name:    Dale

Age:       6 and a half years

Sex:       Male (neutered)

Breed:    Dachshund

Location:  Washington DC


Vet Info: Dale is confirmed neutered and is up-to-date on vaccines. Next rabies is due 11/2015 and distemper is due 07/2017. He is heartworm negative. The vet’s office confirmed he is on medication for anxiety. Dale is blind due to SARDS – Sudden Acquired Retinal Disease – since June, 2011. He is otherwise in good health.Dale weighs 18 lbs. 


Owner InfoDale is a blind dachshund who is fear-aggressive and having trouble adjusting to the new baby in the house. His owners have tried training with a behaviorist but they are worried about a possible safety risk as their son gets older. Dale's family has had him since he was a puppy.


Dale is an indoor dog who is crated; he is house-broken and leash-trained. He has had basic obedience training and knows commands, sit, stay, come, and careful (which is used for “slow down because you may run into something.”) He has also taken two reactive dog classes. Dale is good with men and women and male and female dogs. The family also has a female terrier mix and she and Dale generally get along well. Dale is not protective of toys, treats or food. However he is fear-aggressive and there was an incident last year when he got scared by a little girl and nipped at her foot. It did not break the skin and Dale's owner writes it happened “because the adults weren't paying close enough attention.” Dale also gets into fights with the family's female dog, Penny, and this Spring, Penny attacked Dale and in the ensuing fight Dale bit Penny on the elbow and it broke the skin. Because of these incidents, Dale's owner feels he would do best in a quieter environment without small children or other animals.


Dale's owner writes, “Dale has his issues but he does adjust well. He has a wonderful personality that really endears him to people. People often have a hard time believing he is blind because he moves around so well and he's very trusting walking with others on a leash and even running.” She wants us to know that this is a heart-breaking decision for them but they want Dale to be happy and safe. She says they would be willing to take him back if a new home doesn't work out. They just don't want to see him put in a shelter or put down.

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."

Vet Info:  Peyton's owner writes that Peyton is current with vaccinations and has given more details about her eye issues:  "she was born with a recessive genetic disease there is no dna test for called optic nerve hypoplasia. Her sire and dam were unknowingly carriers. Her parents have had all their other testing and have eye exams every year.

Peyton is not yet spayed. Currently, she weighs about 8 pounds.

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."

Her owner writes that Baby may bark a lot when someone comes into the house because she wants them to know that she is there!  
Her owner says that other than her eye problem, Baby has been a healthy dog.  She gave us more details about Baby's eye condition:

 "She is well now. She had an onset of glaucoma and it was so quick, that even with all kinds of medications for over a month and a half, her eyes were not getting better. She was treated to remove the eye pressure, but would not keep her eyesight. I feel that she can see light and dark, but she is blind and I keep her on a leash when outside and just keep her close when needed and let her run with me and she acts just as normal and LOVES going out for walks!! :)"  

Her owner wants us to know that Baby is a great dog!!!  "I have been PRAYING to find only the BEST PLACE for a lovely lady. She deserves that and more. She is calmed down a lot. She needs more TLC than she is receiving now because of TIME. She will only make a family very, very happy and proud to have her as an addition to their family."

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."

"She is great around other dogs and cats.  her best friend is a cat  lol   .... she is skidish at 1st around other dogs until the 1st sniff or 2.  I think its because she is blind and just nervous.  she was attacked by a pit bull when she was a year and a half.  hurt her pretty bad. but never aggressive.  worst thing she will do is squat and pee when she is scared or nervous.  and that has just started since she went blind this last year.  before that she is very playful around kids and dogs.  never shown any signs of aggression.    she has a new habit of giving a bark out when customers come in but she is jut saying hi. and it is just a single bark.  not sure where she came up with that because she isn't a barker unless the doorbell rings...."

​ 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

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".

7/9 We've heard from Talley's owners, and she needs a new home or rescue before August 2nd!  
Talley is a beautiful mix whose owners are moving due to divorce.  She is unable to move with either the husband or the wife.  They are very much hoping for rescue or a new home for sweet Talley.

Name:    Talley
Age:      10 years
Breed:     Mixed
Sex:        Female (confirmed spayed)
Location:  Baltimore, MD area

Vet Info:  Talley is confirmed spayed and up to date on vaccines.  She received her rabies and other vaccines on 6/20/15.  Talley is heartworm negative.  She weighs about 70 pounds.

Owner Info:  Talley is a beautiful mix whose owners are moving due to divorce.  She is unable to move with either the husband or the wife.  They are very much hoping for rescue or a new home for sweet Talley.

Talley is completely blind and had both eyes removed in the last couple of years "after crises with glaucoma and attempts at drops and laser surgery."  She has fatty lumps and could use a dental cleaning, but other than that, her owners write she is healthy.  Talley is an indoor dog with run of the house, she is housebroken and leash trained.  Talley is described as outgoing, and is good with people of all ages, male and female dogs, and cats.  She is not possessive of toys, treats, or food.

Talley's owners tell us she's a friendly girl who likes to meet other dogs!  "She is vocal from the window (now only based on sound). She used to pull on leads and bark at other dogs on walks but only half the time. Now that she is blind, she still barks some of the time but enjoys meeting other animals, especially dogs, such as at the vet."  

Talley adapts well to new situations and is doing very well managing her blindness.  "She sniffs and maps her terrain. While we have been moving stuff around daily to paint and re carpet the house for sale, she navigated each new obstacle course very well."  Her owners write that she doesn't like taking pills (she needs peanut butter!) or having her nails clipped.

Talley's owners want us to know she's a very sweet girl!     "She loves daily short walks. She gets her enjoyment from sniffing new smells outside. Very sweet dog, will greet you at the door and lay near you in the house. Fine with hose baths. Will bark if people drive into driveway or approach the door but will be quiet and happily welcoming when they enter."

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.

​8/4/15  
Sylvester (named by his good samaritan's children) was abandoned in a neighborhood and fell into a yard. They tried to help him out through the gate, but he was terrified and ended up running into the brick wall.  His good samaritans realized he's blind and don't want to bring him to the shelter.  They cannot keep him, and they are desperately hoping for rescue for him.  They tell us he is very sweet!  

​8/15/15 Update:  Yes, he does definitely still need a home! Sylvester's foot seems to be healed up now. He isn't limping at all anymore. Also, I wanted to let you know that I think he seems to like have other dogs around. He stays in our backyard & our dog stays in the house, but when we let her out to go potty, Sylvester gets really excited. He tries to run around & play with her, but she's more of a loner & just runs away from him. I think he would love to find a home with another dog to run around and play with. Wanted to let you know that in case someone asks.  
 Thank you so much for all your help! ​

Name:    Sylvester
Age:       2 -3 years (good samaritan's guess)
Sex:        Male (not neutered)
Breed:    Looks like Border Collie
Location:  Louisville, KY area (southern IN)

Vet Info:  Sylvester has not been vetted.  He weighs about 40 - 50 pounds.  

Owner Info:  Sylvester (named by his good samaritan's children) was abandoned in a neighborhood and fell into a yard. They tried to help him out through the gate, but he was terrified and ended up running into the brick wall.  His good samaritans realized he's blind and don't want to bring him to the shelter.  They cannot keep him, and they are desperately hoping for rescue for him.  They tell us he is very sweet!  

Sylvester seems to be completely blind.  They really want to help Sylvester and gave us more details:  "The pad on one of his front paws looks torn & he is limping around because of it. I also think he may have been beaten before, just because of how he acts. He gets scared & starts running into things if there are more than 2 people near him. He also got scared the first time he heard a man's voice & when he heard the jingle from the clip on the leash. His fur is matted. He has now been in my backyard for 4 days & is in desperate need of a home. We don't have the time or money to take care of him the way he needs & deserves to be taken care of."

Sylvester is an outdoor dog with a fenced yard, he is not housebroken or leash trained.  He is described as nervous and shy.  Since they've had him, he has shown no aggression and is not possessive of toys, treats, or food.  They write, "He seems like a very sweet & loving dog! In the few days that we've had him, we haven't seen any bad behavior."

In the few days they've had him, Sylvester has made good progress. He sounds like a real sweetheart!  Please read more of his story below when we asked if they knew how Sylvester was with others, "I checked no on a lot of the questions on that form that I didn't know the answers to since he's only been with us for a few days. Yes, that is also why I didn't check him being good with children, men or male dogs. My kids have only been outside with him for a few minutes at a time, but he does seem to be good with them. They are 7 & 11 yrs old. He doesn't interact with them much though, because he seems to get freaked out with more than one person around. He still does okay with two people, but kind of backs away like he doesn't feel totally comfortable. As far as with men, when my husband first interacted with him, he seemed scared when he heard his voice, but in the past day or so has started following him around when he's cutting grass or doing yard work. I do think he's good around men, just maybe scared at first until he knows they won't hurt him. I don't know at all how he is around male dogs, because I haven't seen him interact with them yet. In the few days that he's been with us, we haven't seen him snap or even growl at anyone, including our dog, even the first day when he was really scared & injured. Also, his paw seems to be healing up pretty well. We didn't do anything with it, but he is walking on it a lot better now than what he was a few days ago. Then, he would barely let it touch the ground when he walked. Now, he is walking on it with a slight limp. He seems to be a very well-behaved dog despite the rough life he seems to have had so far. Thank you so much for all your help!"

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."
