Sheba (I am blind)
Adult (6y 10mo)-Female-Large
Please contact Center County Paws State College, Pa

Slip on your satin and slippers, ’tis I, the Queen of Sheba! Contrary to the historical deity who preferred lying and being fanned, I like being held and cuddled. Pretty sure she would stoop to rubs of her belly too if she just rolled over and gave it a chance. I can just see her rear left leg all a jiggle with pleasure when that “spot” is hit. Anyway, I love everybody and everything. I have dwelt with cats and we are good to go. Let’s paws here for some truth in advertising. I am a little blind girl. So it could be that I just don’t react to any perception of cats. I enjoy considerate, gentle children a great deal and I love other dogs. I am house trained. I am living at the center getting all up to speed on the latest and greatest-if not always the truth-canine gossip. Some of those pups can really weave a long tall tail. Please come visit any time the center is open. I think I could be just the company you deserve.


Lucas (I am Blind)
Adult- Male – Small
Please contact DFW Tzus & More Rescue, Dallas-Fort Worth, TX

My name is Lucas Hoge, I am a Shih Tzu mix, probably with poodle, who weighs about 10 pounds and I am a special-needs dog. I am blind and need a special home. I am pretty much like a normal dog but I need a lot of normalcy in my life. I need a home that’s going to be a little more slow paced, meaning no swimming pools, no children under the age of 15, and since I’m blind I do get under foot some times and can trip you up. Now that we’ve got that taken care of let me tell you about me. I am very lovable and active. I’m pretty good on a leash and about 90% potty trained. I’ll go in a crate but I will make a ruckus for a while. I need to be in a home where someone is home most of the time. My foster parents are amazed at how I adapt without sight. With just a few considerations I’m just like any other dog. Please come see me in person if you are that special home.
For complete instructions on our adoption process and to complete an adoption application please go to our website: www.savethetzus.com. Note: The children of adopters must be age 6 or older. We require single family homes to have a fully fenced yard. WE ADOPT IN THE IMMEDIATE DFW METROPLEX ONLY.

Blossom (Blind) & Cosmo
1 year; 6 months – Both are Small
Please contact Nobody’s Perfekt Dogs SAN LEANDRO, CA

My name is Blossom and I was found on the streets of Oakland with another dog and taken to the shelter. I had a microchip and it was registered to my owner. The shelter contacted my owner and she said that she would come and get me. After multiple broken promises to get me, the shelter figured out that my owner was a low-life loser (I could have told them that, if they had asked), and I was released for rescue.

I was born with diseased eyes, very painful congenital glaucoma. Because I was so young, and the disease was so advanced, the best solution was to remove both my eyes to relieve my pain. As tragic as losing both eyes is for a puppy, I handled it like I handle everything: tail wagging, just looking for love.

Recently I was paired with a sighted support dog, Cosmo, that can be my lifelong companion and help me navigate through a life of darkness. Cosmo was young puppy that was struggling with shelter life and needed rescue. We are the best of friends and need to be adopted together.

Cosmo and I need a home that is “blind-dog-proof.” I can handle a few stairs once I learn the layout of the house, but I would not do well with ledges that don’t have a guard rail. We do well with other dogs, but some dogs get confused by my blind behaviors (walking into things, for instance) and might react negatively. I wouldn’t even know if you had cats, but no kids. Please note: NPD can only consider adopters in Northern California. Also note because we are a “special needs” rescue, our insurance policy prevents us from adopting to Families with children under 13.

Frankie (I am Blind)
Adult- Male – Small
Please contact Pioneers for Animals Welfare Society, Inc. Hicksville, New York (Frankie is located in Nassau County, NY)

Frankie is a 20 lb, 11yr old fully vetted, neutered, adorable mutt. He was an adopted rescue that is now in need of a home better suited to his needs. Sadly, Frankie can no longer see. Yet, despite his blindness, Frankie is a sweet, friendly dog. He is housebroken, crate-trained and loves to play
with his tennis balls. He is good around older children, cats and small dogs. Young children and large dogs are a little harder for him as he adjusts. Getting used to a world of darkness can sometimes be a little scary. He needs a caring, understanding forever home. He loves to cuddle. He is a great and lovable dog who will make a fantastic companion for someone who is home more often than not..

If you are interested in meeting this sweet guy, please contact adoptions@paws-li.org or go to our FB page or call (631) 306-4616.

Jojo_Courtesy

Jojo (Josey) (I am Blind)
Adult- Male – Large
Please contact Destiny For Dogs, West Palm Beach, FL

Josey is a very handsome and loving Black and Tan Hound Rottie mix boy that is fully vetted, neutered, up to date on shots, microchipped, parasite free, completely housebroken, crate trained, good in car, and very well behaved. This precious boy who was dumped by his owner over four months ago needs your help more than ever to find his perfect loving forever home, FOREVER.

JoJo was just diagnosed today, July 5th by Dr. Carastro, Ophthalmologist, with SARDS (Sudden Acquired Retinal Degeneration Syndrome). JoJo went from seeing perfectly to becoming completely blind in less than a week with this very rare disease in dogs. Unfortunately, there is no cure, however JoJo can live a normal and happy life with the right person and environment. He would do best in a quiet, adult home as the only animal and with someone who doesn’t rearrange furniture.

JoJo wasn’t born blind and this is extremely frightening for him. His brain function, hearing and sense of smell are great. He would love to be a lap dog for that special someone that would open their home and heart to him.

From JoJo’s foster mom:
“JoJo has already memorized the path to go out of the house & where the water dish is, he can hear when someone comes up the walk & he barks to let us know. He is mellow & walks good on the leash with no pulling as long as you direct him where to go. Dr. Carastro said he could have a full long life, He’s probably 6 to 6 1/2 yrs old. 85lbs (could stand to lose a little weight). He loves food, treats and takes them gently from the hand.”

For additional information or to meet and fall in love with JoJo, please contact JoAnn 561-313-2005 or joann@destinyfordogs.com

Rowan (I am Blind and Deaf)
Young Adult – Male – Medium
Please contact iRescue – Weatherford, TX

Rowan is a sweet 1 year old male Catahoula Leopard mix pup. He is about 45 pounds of joyful, wiggly fun. Rowan is very friendly and loves people and other dogs. He loves to romp and play! Rowan is a handsome boy, but his looks could be a result of poor breeding practices. Rowan is most likely a Double Merle and was born without vision or hearing. Rowan is confident and can adapt to change. After a few days, he will map out a new home. This pup is a confident boy and is balanced with a wonderful temperament.

Rowan likes to play with other dogs and may be too much for some. He would be happy in a home with another energetic, tolerant dog. No cats please! Rowan is currently in a training program to learn basic obedience. A command is communicated to him through touch signals. He is motivated by food and play, but can be a bit stubborn. Lots of practice helps him to learn and retain his new skills. Rowan has an endearing habit of carrying his bone around in his mouth. He is quite adorable and you will soon fall in love with him!

Rowan is crate trained and is potty trained if kept on a schedule. This pup has a lot going for him. Please fill out an application if you would like to learn more about him and meet him.

Hunter (I am Visually Impaired)
Adult – Male – Large
Please contact Everglades Angels Dog Rescue – Pompano Beach, FL

I would like to tell you about our recent new angel, Hunter, who we took into our organization, Everglades Angels Dog Rescue. Hunter is a 4 year old, 60 lb, boxer mix that wandered into a yard in Fort Lauderdale. He had no chip, no identification but clearly was in dire need of medical attention. The woman whose yard he wandered into took care of him that night and reached out to see if we could take him in. We could not turn our backs on this beautiful boy. He had a piece of his ear missing, lacerations, and basically we could not see his left eyeball. Once examined by our vet, we were notified that not only did he have extensive hookworm infestation, ear infection, but he was heart worm positive. Also, he would have to have his left eye sewn closed and had very little sight in his right eye! Through all of this he remains the sweetest and most lovingly boy. He enjoys walking and sitting in the yard with our volunteers. He loves to give kisses and lean on you for attention. He is a volunteer favorite. If you have any questions or are interested in our angel Hunter, please contact us at 1-800-511-dogs.

Matilda (I am blind)
Adult – Female – Medium
Please contact CNY SPCA – Syracuse, NY

Beautiful Matilda was turned in to the shelter by an owner who could no longer care for her. She has had a difficult time adjusting to the noisy life in the shelter and would love to find a quiet stable environment with someone to love. She loves toys, walks, bones and snuggling. She would do best in an adult only home as an only pet. Matilda is currently at the CNYSPCA in syracuse NY. If interested please email sm@cnyspca.org


Junior (I am blind)
Adult – Male – Large
Please contact Bullies and Beyond – Coral Springs, FL

Junior is 2yrs old, 60lbs, housebroken, and crate trained. He is an American bulldog mix.
He is good with other dogs and requires proper introduction. No cats and no young babies as he would do best in a home without to much commotion, he’s a chill dog and sweet as can be! He would make anyone an incredible companion. His senses are very keen and he loves to play ball with himself. He is a treasure hunter and will bring you twigs and palm fawns. Junior is very proud of his finds and more than happy to share. He is a patient boy that given the chance will wake you up in the morning. He loves to give hugs from behind in a sneak attack. He makes a mental imprint of everything he encounters and gets along and about great. Junior does like his safe space and is not a walker…walks are scary to him. He puts the true meaning into gentle giant and is a total lover boy.

Frank (I am blind)
Senior – Male – Large
Please contact Butler County Humane Society – Renfrew, PA

This gentle soul is Frank. Not only is he completely blind, but he’s a senior boy at 9-1/2 yrs. old with no home or family. Frank came to the Butler County Humane Society in Renfrew, PA as a stray six months ago and has been cared for and loved by our staff and volunteers, but Frank needs a place to call “Home”. Day after day people come and go, and there just never seems to be any interest in the senior dog with special needs. Walk by Frank’s kennel and you’ll see him sprawled out on his cushy pet bed with his two front legs in front of him and his head resting on his paws. He’s as quiet as can be, never joining in on the chorus of barking by the other dogs around him. But his whole demeanor changes when a familiar voice approaches and he hears his kennel door open. His face visibly lights up as he prances around with excitement. He knows someone is about to take him for a walk or spend one-on-one time with him.

Frank thoroughly enjoys human companionship and going for a leisurely stroll… oftentimes with his favorite toy in tow. He LOVES squeaky toys so much that he’s even been known to carry one around as he walks, face beaming, without ever letting it drop the entire time. We can’t fathom how this loveable boy ever found himself homeless, but it was obvious when he came to us that he had been well-fed. All efforts were exhausted to locate his owner and indicate that he was likely abandoned. This would be a traumatizing experience for any dog, but that much harder on an older dog with a disability. Frank deserves to spend his golden years in a peaceful and quiet environment without stress, and with the stability of his very own family. Because of his age and disability, Frank would need to be in a home without stairs and young children. Please contact the Butler County Humane Society at 724.789.1150 with any questions or e-mail Info@butlercountyhs.org.


Mystic (I am vision and hearing impaired)
Adult – Female – Medium
Please contact Pet Path – Philadelphia, TN

Mystic came to us with an irreversible condition with her eyes and ears. She can she very little and she can hear very little. She is not to comfy with being in a crate inside she prefers to be outside. We think she would do well in a secured high fence area more than likely a wooden privacy fence so she can see it And not run into it. The area would have to be clean and free of anything sharp she could hurt herself on. Puppy proof is what we would call it. She could run in a yard throughout the day and be content but will need to be placed inside in a basement or garage with climate control at night. See cannot see at all at nighttime in the dark so for her safety she would need to stay inside during dark hours. She’s lived her life in a very small enclosed outdoor kennel and has never been inside except for what we have shared with her. She may do great inside with patience and lots of love. She is sweet and deserves a chance. She wants attention and love but isn’t quite sure how to accept it. She will just need time to bond and get to know her new family. We have already seen a tremendous difference in her in just over a week. Please someone give this beautiful girl a chance. For more information please contact Pet Path at petpathorg@yahoo.com or via phone 225-362-9591 or
225-571-6637.


Bonded Pair
Sadie (I am blind) Adult – Male – Small
Jada (I am blind) Adult – Female – Small
Please contact CSRNE – Greenfield, NH

Seven year old Jada and her best buddy, eight year old Sadie, are a truly bonded pair – and they’re both blind. Although Sadie, a neutered male, is blind he always knows where Jada is – and she relies on him. When they go for leash walks with their mom, Sadie is the leader and he walks ahead of his mom and Jada follows behind her – it’s quite the parade.

Our vet diagnosed Jada with juvenile cataracts and we hope they’re operable and she can regain some sight. Sadie has cataracts and glaucoma, he’s now on two eye medications to help reduce the pressure in his eyes. The immediate need is to find a loving, caring adult only home for these two special cockers. CSRNE will pay for all ophthalmological care and medications. Our vet said both dogs are otherwise in good health.

Sadie and Jada love going for walks and belly rubs! Do you know a special person who might be willing to give these two dogs the care and attention they so deserve? We know we’re looking for a rare individual who has the time to care for Jada and Sadie but we’re hoping their cocker angel is out there somewhere willing and able to help these two devoted cockers. For more information call 605-547-3363 or email info@csrne.org

Sophia (I am blind)
Adult – Female – Small
Please contact Broken Tail Rescue – Worcester, MA

Sophia is a very, very sweet 4-6 year old chihuahua mix weighing about 10 pounds. She gets along well with dogs and cats, but all she really wants is to be with her person. Sophia follows her foster mom everywhere and at night will dance on her back legs to get her mom over to the couch where they can snuggle together. Sophia will come running from anywhere in the house when she hears her name called! Sophia is good with the teenagers in her foster home, but like many small delicate dogs, she would prefer a home without small children.

Sophia is very well house trained and sleeps quietly in a crate. She is very relaxed and just loves cuddling and giving kisses. She does have early onset cataracts and is mostly blind. She gets around just fine, but it can make her a bit nervous in new situations.

Sophia is spayed, up to date on vaccines, negative for Heartworm and Lyme disease and come with a microchip. To apply to adopt Sophia please click here.

Zoe (I am blind)
Young Adult – Female – Large
Please contact Canine Pet Rescue – Dacula, GA

Housebroken: Yes Crate trained: Yes Good with dogs/cats/kids: Yes/Don’t know/Yes
Likes: Playing catch, running in a fenced yard, Chewing on Nyla-bones, snuggles with her humans
Dislikes: New places, they are scary!

My name is Zoe and I am a 2 year old German Shepherd. I am blind and likely was born without sight, as I am very adept at getting around by using my nose and ears. I would love to have an active, patient couple with another dog and maybe even older children to play with. I am still very much a puppy and have a lot to learn, so patience is a must! I maneuver around my foster home and yard very well but I would prefer to have you at my side to talk to me and guide me until I learn my way around. Once I’m familiar with a space, I love to run around and play ball, roll in the sunny grass, and play with my doggie friends. Occasionally I don’t recognize other dogs giving me signals that they have had enough puppy play time, and then I go to my bed (crate) to calm down.
I have mastered going up and down the stairs in my house and backyard. I can also get under your feet trying to be by your side so please be patient and watch your step. I rely on my humans to guide me and protect me, so I stay by your side at all times.
I am a beautiful girl looking for my perfect forever home and hoping its just right around the corner. Please feel free to ask any questions and these nice people will be happy to answer them!
Zoe is available through Canine Pet Rescue in Dacula, GA. To see her Facebook post, click here and to see a video of Zoe click here!

Jake (I am blind and deaf)
Catahoula – Adult – Male – Large
Please contact Carla with POLA Foundation – Shreveport, LA

Jake is a blind and deaf Catahoula. He’s 55 lbs and is approximately 6 years old. He is a very happy go lucky dog and gets along great for being blind and deaf. He is completely house trained and is even leash trained. He prefers to sleep on the human bed versus the doggie bed. Jake loves everyone he comes in contact with and is good with dogs and cats. He is happy to be petted, cuddle up next to you, or take a stroll around the yard.

Jake was most likely born blind (and deaf), as he has microphthalmia which is common in the double merle Catahoulas. He is currently being treated for heartworms, is up to date on vaccinations, and will soon be neutered and microchipped. He has an old injury to his right hip, but it doesn’t seem to hurt him and he gets around just fine and even climbs on my bed all by himself.

Jake was found wandering the streets alone and was taken to the local shelter. His owners never came to claim him. Jake is in a foster home and is doing just great and enjoying life while waiting for his furever home.

If you are interested in adopting Jake, please email polafoundation@gmail.com or Carla at challengercw@gmail.com.

Jax (I am blind)
Dog • Adult • Male • Large
Please contact: San Nicola Dog Rescue & Sanctuary Denver, CO

Jax is a great dog, loving and mellow, gets along with people and dogs. Before he got to us, he was in the shelter in KS where he came as a stray. It’s very sad to imagine this dog alone out in the street. He is tall, light, in great shape, has beautiful chocolate color coat and brown eyes. Doesn’t look blind and you would never guess until you see him bumping into furniture. But it doesn’t take him long to learn his way around. He is smart and attentive and tilts his head in adorable way when you talk to him. Amazingly, Jax is easier to walk on a leash than any other dog we have – he doesn’t pull forward, he rather trusts you to show the way and stays by your side, often touching you with his shoulder and listening to your steps. He is so nice to walk that you can forget that there is a dog next to you. It’s fun to show him the world around, he is curious, appreciative and very capable of deep connection.

Ash (I am blind)
Dog • Young • Male • Medium as an Adult
Please contact: Heavenly Angels Rescue Ozone Park, NY

Ash is definitely the “old soul” of the pack. He is a 9 weeks old Husky mix who weighs 17 lbs. He is wise, playful, calm and so, so sweet. Ash is also the quintessential big brother always up for a good wrestling match or providing respite to his siblings from all the puppy shenanigans when necessary. He is also the perfect cuddle bug.🐾

“But just when you think you have learned the way to live, life changes”-Hugh Prather

Resilience, gratitude, and patience have also come to define Ash. Last Friday Ash was diagnosed with Primary Congenital Glaucoma and within a weeks time he has become blind. No one could have predicted that this would become part of what defines Ash but he has already broken all the stereotypes and quelled all of our worries. He is already begun mapping his living space and learned where his bed is in relation to his wee wee pad, water bowl and how to get up and down from the couch without any help. He is also using his sense of smell and his hearing to ensure he gets his needs met and he has learned to use his beautiful voice (howl) to get our attention when he wants to cuddle or needs extra help. He is surely grateful for these sharp senses. It has certainly been a rough week for Ash but he has taught everyone in his orbit to do better and to be better through his courage and perseverance. What an honor it has been to be his foster family. Sometimes life’s most valuable lessons come from the most unusual of places. Open your heart and your home to this extraordinary puppy who will definitely leave his paw print on your heart for a lifetime. Contact Heavenly Angels Animal Rescue to adopt Ash.


Blue (I am blind) & Cinnamon
Dog • Adult • Male (Blue) Female (Cinnamon) • Medium
Please contact: Asheya ashmcisaac@gmail.com

Please meet Cinnamon and Blue. These two are a team as Blue (the Pitty) is blind. They are looking for a home together. They are both healthy and have been fixed. All they need is room to roam together. They are both so friendly, cuddly and precious.

I met Blue at our last clinic and he seemed to use his sense of smell to get himself around. I was so surprised to see how well he moved and with not much hesitation. He didn’t have any fear and his tail wagged the whole time as he moved from one place to another. As soon as he would come close to a person it was like he couldn’t contain his joy. It was awesome watching him. I haven’t seen how he moves with Cinnamon but have been told that he lets her lead him and that they are very close. The picture says a lot.

They are at Animalandia rescue in Loreto, Baja. We will take care of all forms for travel and transportation fees. Click here to see the original post.


 

Jasper (I am blind)
Dog • Adult • Male • Medium
Please contact: For The Love of Dogs Hanover, PA


19/03/05 Jasper is still looking for his for forever home!
Jasper(#125-18) is blind and was a stray who found his way to a kill shelter with his companion. Jasper and his companion, who helped Jasper ‘see’, were sent to a rescue. His companion was adopted, leaving Jasper without a guide and without a whole lot of hope. He was sent back to the shelter alone. This is when Jasper came to the our rescue… and now he’s waiting for his Forever Family ❤ Are you the ones?

This special boy needs a special person! Jasper is a sweet 5 year old Border Collie mix. He is a sweet boy who is housebroken and crate trained. Jasper is permanently blind, so he would do better in a home with children 16 and older that can fully understand his needs (he startles if don’t let him know you are there), and a fenced in yard. He gets along well with other dogs, but is understandably a little shy with them at first because of his lack of sight. Jasper is being fostered in Hanover, PA.

Duddy (I am blind)
Dog • Adult • Male • Medium
Please contact: Brother Wolf Animal Rescue Asheville NC

Our friend Duddy is a 14-year old house trained Miniature Pinscher Mix. Despite his age and some other challenges, he has insulin-dependent diabetes and is blind, he is sociable, sweet and has maintained a pup like curiosity about the world. He quickly tunes into what is going on and will vocalize as if to say, I want a treat or I want a walk or I want some loving too. He gets along with most dogs except those who are extremely active since he is not able to see them and avoid being bumped into or stepped on. He has lived with cats in the past and there have been no reported issues. He likes to go out for walks but may need you to watch that he not bump his head as he is eager to get on his way and explore. Duddy has lived in a home environment before but his previous owners were not able to provide the consistent care he needed. Could you be the person he is looking for to live out his elder years? He may need a little extra care but he will pay you back with a personality which you will never forget. If you are interested in adopting or fostering Duddy or just would like more information, please contact Brother Wolf Animal Rescue at (828) 505-3440.


Jack (I am vision impaired)
Dog • Adult • Male • Medium
Please contact: Florida Keys SPCA Key West, FL

2/26/19 Jack is still looking for his forever home! Jack is a member of AARD, (American Association of Retired Dogs) , a senior dog actively enjoying his retirement years. He’s 9 years young with plenty of energy left to enjoy an active life with a human friend. He has an eye condition which limits his sight. He has been seen by an eye specialist who determined that he can see shadows during the day when the light is bright. This explained how well he walks when out in open spaces with no obstacles during daytime. (Check out the video). In low light and darkness, he behaves more like a blind dog with very limited or no vision. He is currently on nutritional supplements to help his eyes. He may do ok with a well-mannered female dog who does not overwhelm him. He loves his walks, does very nicely on leash, and thinks there is nothing better than a soft bed. He has become a staff and volunteer favorite but is very willing to say good bye to all of us if the right person came along.

Living with a blind dog can take extra sensitivity, empathy, and observation to help them succeed and feel safe in a world they cannot see. But for those who choose to take on a special needs dog like Jack, there are few things more rewarding!

If you would like more info about Jack, please contact info@fkspca.org. Thank you for caring about dogs like Jack and all other animals in need of love and a family. Jack has been at the shelter for two months, and is now really looking forward to something different! He is neutered, 9 years old, and weighs approx. 50lbs. He is HTW negative, vaccinated, and microchipped. Click here to view a video of jack.


Valour (I am blind)
Dog • Adult • Male • Medium
Please contact: Cuz I Matter Animal Rescue Pflugerville, TX

Valour is a 2 year old male with an incredible story. This poor dog was euthanized and was discarded but the shelter botched the dose and he woke up. He somehow escaped and was found wandering along a highway. He was rescued and is now looking for his forever home. He does well with other dogs but is a bit hesitant with people (do you blame him?!). Please contact Cuz I Matter Animal Rescue if you are interested in adopting this sweet guy.

Check out a video of him here!


Phil (I have a disability)
Dog • Adult • Male • Medium
Please contact: Sochi Dogs

Phil is a very special dog! Found injured on the street a kind soul brought him to a vet where everyone fell in love with his loving personality and goofy mannerisms. So when it was time for Phil to go, Sochi Dogs stepped in to help him find a home.

This sweet boy is only able to use three of his legs, but that doesn’t stop him from enjoying time outside, walking up and down stairs, and playing with other dogs. Phil is an easy dog, he is house trained and walks well on a leash.

Phil is in NJ looking for a family in CT that will give him the love and kindness that he deserves. Ideally, Phil needs a fenced-in yard to play and walk around in.

Diva (I am blind)
Dog • Adult • Female • Medium
Please contact: One Love Animal Rescue Mount Laurel, NJ

Diva is my very special blind foster girl. She entered my life in August of last year and has left a lasting “paw print” on my heart. I was so nervous and scared at the idea bringing a blind dog into my home. I purchased the best-rated raising a blind dog books and did my best to prepare…. but you know what?…my instructor, teacher and friend was able to teach me everything I needed to know and that was Diva herself. She has been blind her entire 7 years of life, her attitude is “I got this and I will show you” and show me she did. Diva showed me she was very adaptable to a predictable environment, Diva showed me just a few carefully chosen words would keep her out of trouble, Diva showed me that all dogs can be off-leash and MOST IMPORTANTLY Diva has taught me to slow down and listen, there is so much to be experienced through the pleasure of sound.
Diva has her own FB page
https://www.facebook.com/Blind-Dog-Off-Leash-1841101579479…/
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.


Potter (I am vision impaired)
Dog •  Senior • Male • Small
Please contact: A Reason To Believe Rescue, WV

02/25/19 Potter is still looking for his forever home!

10/5/16 update: Potter is now healthy and ready for his forever home! This little guy loves people and loves to eat! He’s a senior and his sight is not good and seems to be getting worse, so it would be best for Potter to be the only pet and live in an adults-only home. He is paper trained but not completely housebroken. Potter hoards things and loves to sleep on his foster mom’s clothes…he takes comfort from her scent. He likes to rough house with his foster mom. At this point in his life, he basically wants nothing to do with other animals. Potter is a people pooch seeking a retirement home! 10 years 12 lb.

History:

Intake Condition: severely matted and crying because it hurts to move. Found maggots eating at him. Blood work was a mess. He was unwilling to eat at first. Clearly Potter was at death’s door when I found him.

7/15 update: Before and after photos uploaded. Before=July 6th and after = today July 15th We still have a long way to go physically but mentally and emotionally I can already see the change

7/19 update: Yesterday evening I got home and checked on Potter- he was fine, happy to see me, had eaten most of his special food, had drank lots of water and had peed three times on his puppy pad. A hour later I go back in and run his bath & he won’t stand up, is whining, and is growling at me. So I call doc and we decide that it’s his skin. It obviously hurts. We stop the steroid just in case and gave him some pain medication I had on hand- continue the antibiotics. A little bit later and he was fine so I was sure it was his skin. All checks through the night and this morning he is his regular self. Took him in to see doc for labs and his liver is way off, his WBC count is up and his platelets have stopped going up, so we’re stopping some meds, starting others, changing food, and shooting for an ultrasound tomorrow. He needs a liver biopsy but is far too unhealthy to survive a surgery. So we’re still in the woods. Currently he’s riding shot gun and is pain free. On the bright side, Doc was really happy with how his wounds are healing.

7/21 update: Potter’s liver ultrasound was good.


Dale (Deaf)

2019/03/04 Still looking for his forever home!
Catahoula • Young • Male • Large
Please contact: Canine Castaways • Arcadia, Florida

NAME: Dale
BREED: Catahoula
SEX: male
COLOR: White with red
AGE: 2 years in May 2016
WEIGHT: 65 lbs

LOCATED IN: Arcadia

Dale is very athletic and needs a family to match. He loves to run, run, run! He also loves to play outdoors and to play with other dogs around his size. Once he has had his work out, Dale wants to be a lap dog when you’re sitting on the couch. Dale is still a little nervous when meeting new people, but warms up quickly. He loves the water, has learned how to swim and knows several hand signal commands

He has no peripheral vision at all, but can see approximately 15 to 20 feet. If you approach him from the side, he does not see you. Of course he supposedly can’t hear anything but I have my doubts on that. They are certain tones, especially loud, low tones, that he will respond to.
