Polo (I am blind)
Please contact Happy Go Lucky Mastiff Rescue or call 727-403-7296 Loudon County, VA
2) He gets excited for his humans, and due to his 95 lbs size and blindness, we’d recommend a home with kids 10+. He likes his 4 year old human foster sister but just doesn’t know he can’t be as excited around her lol
3) He does great on walks. Loves to say hi to the neighbors. He does not like nightly walks when it’s dark.
4) He looks intimidating but he’s an absolute sweetheart.
5) He loves to play with toys by himself and to play tug of war. He’s quite strong
6) He sits and waits for his food when you tell him “sit, stay”….even though he is SUPER wiggly for it lol
7) He is house trained but he has marked his territory since he is not fixed.
8) 😎 He allows me to bathe him, clip his nails, clean his ears, take stuff out of his mouth, pretty much anything required to care for him
9) He likes to be around his humans. Currently, the foster family lives in a townhouse where the main living quarters are on the second floor. He does miss them when they’re not by him. He doesn’t have separation anxiety but he does want to be part of the pack. But because of his arthritis, stairs are out of the question for him so a home with the kitchen and common areas on the first floor is a must. He sleeps through the night perfectly and passes out around 8 PM. He’s exhausted past 8 PM so don’t expect him to do anything except maybe take a potty break lol. Foster dad works next to him, from home, Monday-Friday 8-6 most days so he’s not alone for more than 1 hour on weekdays.
10) He seems to love car rides! He may just need a little help up into the car if it’s a higher up car.
11) We haven’t tested him with other animals but he doesn’t seem to react to other dogs on walks when he hears them. He’s more curious about kid sounds like the bike and toy cars.
12) Overall, this pup deserves the best. From the vet exam, the foster family’s vet explained he has signs of living in a crate full time. He deserves a family who will love him, care for him and be there with him to live out his life in the best way possible.

Molly (I am blind)
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org Healdsburg, California
Molly is an incredibly sweet and loving dog. She is submissive and has exhibited no alpha/dominating behavior. She is not food defensive or aggressive… other dogs can approach her bowl and she pays them no mind, and a hand can be reached in front of her mouth or into her bowl and she ignores the interference, or stops eating until the hand is removed.
Molly ignores cats, up until the point that she wants to play with them. Once she has decided she needs to interact, she will stand in front of them and bark incessantly until she is acknowledged. Unfortunately, being blind, she has no way of knowing whether they are responding, or if, in fact, they have left the room entirely. Should she sense that maybe playtime is in the works, she will bow down in an invitation, and bounce and jump, bob, weave and lurch about in an attempt to engage. It is because of this that Molly cannot be homed with cats. She is so large, and so ungainly in her movements that she can easily trample or fall upon an animal and do them harm, or be harmed by them. For this same reason she cannot be homed with children, because she simply cannot see who she may be running into at full bore ramming speed. It is not her intent to do harm, but the gentlest bull in a china shop will still rack up quite a bit of damage.
Molly so loves to play that her enthusiasm can be a bit much. While she plays very well with dogs her own size, even this cannot prevent occasional scuffles and mishaps. Because of her blindness, Molly cannot tell when a dog is interacting with her, and so will continually bark to engage, which can be very disturbing to some dogs as it can come off as aggressive. Additionally, if a dog does decide to interact with her, the romping and playing can at times lead to hard core collisions that take Molly by surprise and cause her to act defensively because she cannot see what is happening. Again, Molly is not aggressive, but wounds caused by defensive behavior are just as damaging as wounds caused by aggressive behavior. To be very clear, Molly’s blindness, and the unfortunate situations that arise due to her disability, are what may cause injury. They are not due to an aggressive disposition. However, the end result is that Molly absolutely must not be homed with small children. She may do well with other very mellow animals, but an introduction will be needed before adoption.
If you walk into a room where Molly is standing and she is spooked, she will immediately drop to the floor and roll over onto her back. She has never snapped at, growled at or been at all defensive or aggressive towards her foster caregivers. She is a total cuddle bug and will snuggle on the couch contentedly while you watch tv and pet her pretty head.
Molly is relatively low energy and easy going, spending her days at her foster mother’s side, sleeping next to her desk. Although previously having only been housed outdoors, Molly took to house-training very quickly, and has had very few accidents in the house. If she needs to go out she will get up and sit next to you, and at some point, should the hint not be picked up, she will put her paw into your lap, and after that begin to pace. If by then the hint is not picked up, Molly asks that she not be blamed as she tried her hardest.
Molly sleeps next to her fosters’ bed, and unless she needs to go potty she will sleep through the night. If she needs to go she will start to pace, and will put her ginormous head on the bed next to you, trying to wake you. Molly does not bark unless she is trying to play. She does not bark at strangers, or out of nervousness, or at the wind or door creaks, or other stimuli that often sets other dogs off. She is very calm, and will lay down for belly rubs at the slightest invitation… if you come up to her she will lay right down and roll over for pets.
Despite being St. Bernard, Molly does not drool. Her fur is silky soft, and the most beautiful auburn color. She is very underweight, but has a healthy appetite and is steadily gaining back her weight and health. She is an absolutely gorgeous dog, and has so much love to offer the right home.
We ask that Molly’s new home:
Be quiet, with few visitors or new people coming and going.
Have no children.
Any other pets will need to meet Molly first before adoption.
Keep her as an indoor dog with outside privileges. She has spent enough of her life outdoors and now deserves ongoing comfort and companionship.
Have stay at home parents. Either work from home (even after quarantine), or be retired. Molly loves her people, and is lost without her seeing eye person by her side.
Understand the needs of a blind dog, and be informed of the challenges this disability presents. She is blind because of the tragic neglect of humans, and should not suffer more because of the resulting challenges she will be facing… she needs an advocate and protector who will love and support her for the rest of her life.
Please forward this to anyone who might be able to give this wonderful, sweet and gentle dog a loving home. For further questions or information, please contact email@example.com.
Molly is in Healdsburg, California, about an hour and a half north of San Francisco. I will bring her wherever her perfect home might be.

Ashton is about 8-10 years old and is dog friendly and people friendly. He is playful when hes not sleeping. He is in good health despite the rough shape he came to us in!

Chase (I am blind)
Please contact Greta’s Animal Ark Animal Rescue New Orleans, LA or email@example.com
Chase was found as a stray and was brought to the shelter. He was never claimed by his owners. He needed a dental BAD – he had his dental last week and is recovering well. He still has a few teeth left but hes on a soft food diet now. He is dog friendly. Needs a home without kids. Pretty much sleeps all day. He really just needs a nice retirement home! He’s very sweet and gives kisses. We are hoping for a Pomeranian experienced home.
Chase is neutered, heartworm negative and his senior bloodwork came back clear so he is healthy. If you’re interested in adopting Chase please complete an adoption form here.
Beastie (I am vision impaired)
Please contact Seer Farms Carney’s Point, NJ or firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for coming by and saying HI! My name is Beastie, but I’m really a big softy. I am visually impaired, I can see different levels of light, but no detail so I’ll walk into things which are new to me. After I get my surroundings memorized, you wouldn’t know I was impaired at all! I love going out for walks, or running around in the backyard, or really just being outside. I snuggle down into blankets and am really good at keeping my room clean (housebroken). My short fur is silky soft, and I love being pet, and I eat up attention! I’d like to be a part of your home (especially if it’s a single level with few steps if any).
Ray (I am Blind)
Please contact Rescue Rep Dave at 415-686-4248 or email@example.com.Hoffman Estates, IL Lab Rescue
Ray has settled into our home and is doing very well. He is such a sweet dog. He has recently been house-broken and has been accident free for weeks now. Ray gets along great with people and other dogs (when properly introduced). Would probably do great with another calm/adult dog in the home – he does great with our own Lab. Ray loves his walks around the neighborhood; we walk him very nicely on a Gentle Leader. Our frequent walks have slimmed him down nicely as was initially pretty chunky. He is doing amazing with the few steps in our home and is now even managing the full flight of stairs between our main floor and our downstairs living area.
Besides being blind, Ray appears to be in superb health. Current on vaccinations, heartworm negative, microchipped. Recently neutered. We recently took Ray to a doggie eye specialist who determined Ray is suffering from progressive retinal atrophy and is completely blind in both eyes; this condition is inoperable; he was probably sighted when he was young but progressively lost his vision due to some hereditary issue. His lack of vision does not diminish his spirit and zest for life. Ray can be seen here.

Diva is still in need of a home as of February 09, 2021
Diva has her own FB page
Many wonderful folks follow and comment on Diva’s page and her life as my foster dog. They say “you should just keep her” “she looks so happy”. I love Diva. Her perfect forever home is out there. She NEEDS TO BE THE ONLY DOG. I run an animal rescue, there are so many dogs (besides my 4 personal dogs) in and out of my home. She is not comfortable with all the dogs around and just WANTS to be with her “person”. I KNOW her PERSON is out there. Her person will snuggle and love her all day long. Her person will embrace the %100 devotion Diva is ready to give. Her person will be open to learning and loving life even more through the gifts Diva has to offer.
When Diva’s PERSON arrives, I will cry tears of joy and sadness. I will cry because I will be so overcome with joy that she will get the life she so rightly deserves and sad because selfishly I will miss my dog friend, my early morning cranberry bogs buddy and my end of the day snuggle partner.
