Catalina (I’m Blind)

Mixed breed (?) • Adult • Female • Medium
Pound Dog Found Dog, New Jersey

ABOUT CATALINA (I’M BLIND)

Blind and abandoned, Catalina roamed the streets until an animal control officer was able to bring her to the local animal shelter. There she was given much love and care until she found her way to Pound Dog*Found Dog Rescue. Catalina’s specialists tell us she was either born without sight or lost her sight shortly after birth. Don’t feel sorry for her – after a day or two in a new environment she’s got it down! Don’t call her a poor girl – she’ll happily jump on your lap or show you her favorite toys. Catalina loves belly rubs and tussling with toys but is just as happy snoozing at your feet or lounging with the resident dog on the sofa. Catalina’s ideal home would be with adults or very mature respectful children or a low-key household with a consistent routine. She loves car rides and little adventures but is uncomfortable with loud noises. She loves to be spoken to for direction, and she’s a fast learner. Catalina is house trained, crate trained, spayed, microchipped and up to date with vaccinations. Despite her classification as special needs, Catalina is truly a low maintenance companion.

Zion (I’m Blind)

Golden Retriever Mix • Adult • Male • Medium
Raleigh, NC

20161127_zion_2   20161127_zion_1

ABOUT ZION (I’M BLIND)
Zion is 10 years old, 65 pounds, neutered male. He was surrendered to the local shelter by his owner back in April. We took Zion into rescue, treated his heart worm and ear infections. We also discovered that while Zion is a sweet boy with people, he can be dog reactive. We’ve done training and worked with him and this behavior can be moderated – especially with a good handler and a non-reactive dog – but it’s still there and Zion needs an only dog home. It’s not aggression, more about humping, Zion is just a but of a dominant, humpy guy. Zion is blind – we don’t know why – but is an excellent “navigator” and loves going on walks in the neighborhood daily.

If you’re interested in adopting Zion please contact Julie Rigby (919) 673 – 6794

Mack is a big old boy that loves his foster parents. He loves to be near all people but, since he can’t see, smaller children tend to make him nervous. He seems to get along with most smaller dogs, but medium to large dogs makes him nervous and sometimes he can show aggression. Due to his limited vision, we recommend slow introductions to any dogs and constant supervision to prevent any possible issues.

Mack spends most of the afternoon napping on a comfy chair and just wants to be with everyone. He likes to lay in the sun listening to the neighborhood dogs, and sometimes talks back to them. Even though he can’t see anything he shows a lot of trust and is fearless. He loves to go on walks and likes to jog in parks on a leash. Just be aware of objects for him to avoid bumping into if on a busy sidewalk. He is a fairly calm, easy dog to have. He is completely housetrained and crate trained, and can also be trusted alone in the house with out being kenneled.

Check out these adorable videos of Mack to see first hand how adorable he is and how he doesn’t let his blindness stop him!


James (I’m Blind)

Dog • Beagle Mix • Baby • Male • Medium
For The Love of Paws, Inc. Huntsville, TN

20161024_james_2   20161024_james_1

ABOUT JAMES (I’M BLIND)
James has the purest of souls. He’s never been nasty to another animal or human being. He is very docile. James was born blind. Despite his challenges James learns to familiarize with his surroundings. He becomes very comfortable in a safe controlled environment and will play like a normal dog. James is very submissive. Because of this he has a tendency to be bullied. He needs to be placed in a home with other submissive animals. He is friendly with cats and dogs of all sizes. James is a bit shy at first but once he figures out you have the treats he will be your best friend for life. James becomes afraid and uncomfortable when being picked up because he is blind so he tends to stiffen his entire body. With some time and trust this issue can be resolved. Because James is blind he will be placed in a home with a fenced yard. No exceptions. Even though James cannot see you, he can smell you from a mile away. He loves to be baby talked. Some of his favorite things include chew toys, raw hides and treats. James can be a bit of a couch potato. So if you are looking for a chill dog who is satisfied with you watching movies on the sofa while he gets to lay with you he is your man!! He also loves to eat. James could easily become over weight because of his love for food but with a proper diet this should be no issue. His challenges call for a special home and he deserves to hear the love in your voice and the touch of your hand. James will live a long healthy life given the chance that a loving person or family opens their home to him.

James is neutered and up to date on vaccines. If you’re interested in adopting James please email scloveofpawstn@hotmail.com. Adoption fee $100
