Name:              Gizmo 
  Age:                  4 years 
  Breed:             Boston Terrier/Chihuahua mix, 14 pounds 
  Sex:                   Male, neutered 
  Location:      Bridgeton, MO    

Gizmo is with All About Paws Rescue:

Dog Info:  My name is Gizmo, but I also come to “Gizzy.” I'm a very handsome 4 yr. old 14 lb. Boston Terrier/Chihuahua mix. I am very low key, and have a personality that just goes with the flow. I’ve been struggling with my eyes since I came here a few months ago. After going to the eye doctors several times, it appears that nothing can be done to make my dry eyes better. Those taking care of me have opted to remove my eyes, and for the first time I am pain free and can enjoy living. My foster mom says I am amazing, and very brave. I’m certainly not sitting in the corner, feeling sorry for myself! I’m adventurous and am checking out everything, not being concerned at all when I bump into a few things. It is slowing me down a little, but certainly NOT stopping me! I’m jumping up in the big rocking chair with foster mom and the K9 kiddos, and working my way to the best spot in the chair and grabbing those love pats and giving lots of grateful, slobbery kisses. I’m feeling better with every passing day and my life is very happy. I sleep in a large crate at night with lots of blankets and stuffed animals and hang out on the deck with all the other pups, just sunning myself. I get along well with the other foster doggies, and would do fine in a home with other dogs and kiddos that are dog-savvy, ages 10 and over. I would appreciate having a home with only a few steps, and a wonderful back yard for me to play safely in. I’m doing well with potty training and will be working on walking on a leash.

Vet Info: Gizmo is up to date on all shots, heartworm negative and on heartworm preventative, microchipped, de-wormed and is neutered.

From his rescue:  Gizmo’s adoption fee is $325.00. Out of state adopters are responsible for arranging transport. WE DO NOT SHIP DOGS. If you're looking for a very sweet and lovable boy to join your family, please fill out an application on AAP’s website.

Dog Info:  "Hi everyone!! My name is Tyler. I am a 2-month-old Boxer/Labrador Retriever mix and I currently weigh about 8lbs. Everyone tells me that I am blind. I am not sure what that means because I have so much fun all day long so it must not affect me. I love to play with my canine, feline, and kid friends. Sometimes I bump into my friends or into some walls but I am really good about trying to learn my new environments to figure out where I am going. Once I know where you are, I am ready to play! I love to listen to all kinds of sounds and will even try to follow you wherever you go. Toys are a lot of fun to play with and I hope I can have so many toys at home. I am told that my forever family will shower me with love, treats, and comfy dog beds. I cannot wait to have a dog bed of my own, but even better, I would love my own spot on the couch right next to you. I am doing good with my leash, crate, and house training and hope to learn even more tricks with you. I hope the fact that I am blind does not scare you because it does not scare me! I am so happy you can barely tell. I pride myself on how goofy, fun, and loving I am. I am excited to find my forever family and I am hoping that it's with you! Apply to adopt me today!! 

Vet Info: Tyler is neutered, up-to-date on age-appropriate vaccinations, and microchipped.

Name:          Hunk 
Age:               Born 4/18/2020 
Breed:         American Bully mix, 60 pounds 
Sex:               Male, neutered 
Location:  DeSoto County, MS   

For an adorable video of Hunk, please visit:  

Hunk is with Charlie's Crusaders Pet Rescue.  They pulled him from a local shelter where he was found as a stray.  They would love to find him a foster or adoptive home where he will receive the proper care he needs for his eyes.  Hunk is a sweet dog, and they are really hoping that he finds someone that will take the time to give him the care and love he needs.  

For more information and additional pictures, please connect with Charlie's Crusaders Pet Rescue at: 

Vet Info:  Per his rescue, Hunk is neutered and up to date on vaccinations.  He is not microchipped.  Hunk has difficulty seeing out of his left eye. He needs his eyes cleaned of discharge every day, with eye drops and salve applied.  He has KCS (chronic dry eye), has continual green drainage that crusts and must be cleaned every day. His left eye has a scar on his cornea from the dry eye. Hunk has been treated for an elongated palate, and it has been resolved.  In May of 2023, Hunk was treated for heartworm disease.  Hunk should be retested in February 2024.  He is showing no side effects, no coughing at all.  According to his rescue, his weight is a bigger issue – he needs to go on a diet. Hunk has a skin condition, which is possibly caused by allergies. His ears were inhumanely cut by someone before he was found by the animal shelter.  For more information on KCS, one resource is:   

Dog Info:  Hunk is an indoor dog with the run of the house.  He's not housebroken but is leash trained.  Hunk is an outgoing boy who is good with people of all ages and other dogs.  He's in a foster home with twenty other foster dogs of all sizes.  Because of this, Hunk is not receiving the care that he needs, so his rescue would like to find him a foster or adoptive home where he can receive proper care. Hunk does well in new situations and surroundings.  His rescue tells us, "We felt he did well when we met him and there was a crowd around and other dogs. There was no barking or growling. He loved on all the women and an eleven year old girl." Hunk has a sweet and docile personality. He does not seem to have any behavior issues. He is not possessive of treats, toys, or food.  Hunk is not aggressive and has no bite history.   

Meet Hunk (from Hunk's rescue profile): Hunk is about a 3 year old (as of June 2023) American Bully mix (best guess) that weighs about 60 pounds. Hunk was a stray in Mississippi and taken in by the local animal control officer where he was then passed on to Charlie's Crusaders. Hunk is currently in a foster home in the south and would love to take the freedom ride north to Pennsylvania to meet more prospective families. Hunk is aware of his dashing good looks, but remains modest and unassuming. He's very affectionate and enjoys a good walk as long as it isn't too fast. Hunk will lie by your feet as you're watching television or surfing the internet. Hunk came to us with a few medical problems, including Heartworms and an elongated soft palate. Both of these have been addressed. Hunk does suffer from dry eyes and will need eye drops for the rest of his life, but treatment is manageable. American Bullies are known for their easy going personalities and Hunk is true to that. Hunk is great with other dogs as well as people. Hunk is house trained to a doggie door. We would love for Hunk to have a home with a fence so he can roam freely. Hunk is up to date on his shots and neutered.

Name:  Brownie
Age: 4 years old
Gender: Male, neutered
Breed: Dachshund-Terrier mix, 70 pounds
Location:  San Diego, CA 

Brownie is with the rescue The Animal Pad  
 Contact them at: 
 Brownie is on Instagram!  Check here for daily updates:  
 Visit Brownie's online profile and more photos of him at:

Personality: Very sweet and cuddly! He can be picky with who he likes, but once he does, it's set for life.   
Education: Good with bathroom and leash training 
Favorite Activities: Loves walks, playing with toys, cuddling, tug-o-war with foster doggie sibling, carrying and showing off the squeaky toys. 
Looking for: A patient family that understands his blindness and allows him to be himself. No cats and kids please, and a calm dog will be good. He needs an advocate for him. 
Special needs: Has congenital blindness and is more communicative with voices and gentle touch. Needs to see the vet regularly once a year for Grade II-III/VI systolic murmur. If any problems arise, a recheck echocardiogram and blood pressure should be performed. Gets Cytopoint injections to help with his paw allergy management, which range in price from ~$65-135.00 depending on the vet used. 

 The sweetest snacc! Hey guys! I am Brownie and yes, I am as sweet! I am a 4 year old, Dachshund-Terrier mix and weigh 70 lbs. I am a neutered boy. I was rescued from a kill shelter in LA and TAP pawmised me that I have a deserving family out there. I have congenital blindness and am more communicative with voices and gentle touch. I also see my vet regularly once a year for Grade II-III/VI systolic murmur. If any problems arise, a recheck echocardiogram and blood pressure should be performed. I also get Cytopoint injections to help with my paw allergy management, which range in price from ~$65-135.00 depending on the vet used. I have been a totally good boy at my foster home and bathroom and leash trained. I know cues like “right”, “left”, “stairs/step” and “outside”, and I even ring a bell for the bathroom! Being a blind dog could have been challenging but I am receptive to sounds and my loving foster home is helping set me up for success. I can be very particular about who I am friends with, but if you are one of the lucky ones, it will be the absolute best. I am a lil shadow that follows my mama round and get all cuddly when she’s lounging and sitting. Affectionate pets, belly rubs are my love language. I have a calm temperament, but will try to jump up and give hugs when I greet. I do well alone in the house as a free roamer. I am crate trained, but feel much better outside when alone. IF I am not feeling friendly towards someone, I’d rather be left alone as I don't enjoy being coerced with bribes or treats. Because I’m blind, sometimes when I’m trying to sense someone’s proximity, I get very still and stare out into space. I’m not trying to be rude, I pawmise! If you are my chosen one, I will never try to harm you, but if I am not liking someone, we’d rather not sit together. I love my soft and squeaky toys and carry them around like my babies, toss them and fetch them myself. I don't like to share them with other pets and humans. I also prefer being alone while I eat. Being blind doesn't stop me from my fun! I enjoy walks, playing with toys(and digging and burying them), and tug-o-war is becoming my quick fav with my foster dog sibling! Also, with calm and slow intros on walks outside, I love meeting new dogs and I can be dog-friendly. But no cats please, and I haven’t had kiddo experience yet. A loving and patient home with young adults would be perfect, and females are better, but I am learning to trust! Physical touch is my love language and I am a big time cuddler! I am a very affectionate and loyal friend to have. My adaptability will truly blow your mind and you may forget that I’m sightless. I may be very selective, but when I find my person, we are all set! I will do best with a very patient family, without kids or cats. A calm dog will be okay with slow introductions. We could enjoy a moderate amount of activity and short walks. I can be alone at home by myself, but would prefer company rather than loneliness. If you think you can be the yummy crust to my gooey brownie, let’s meet up! 

My adoption fee is $250 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip. If you want to take me home, please fill out the form on the website here:     


Name:    Polly 
Age:        Approx. 1 year 
Breed:    Australian Cattle Dog/Pit Bull Terrier mix, medium, 50# 
Sex:        Female, spayed Location:  Hopkins County, TX
To view a sweet video of Polly, please visit: 
Please visit Polly's rescue, Pet Lives Matter 2, at:
Please email if you are interested in Polly!   

From Pet Lives Matter 2: "I know since she is blind that it will take a special person to adopt her and be able to work with her. She is wonderful with people. She has her own kennel and spends most of the day in her kennel. She does get let out twice daily to be able to roam around, but all she wants to do is to follow me. She is such a sweet dog and just needs more attention than what I can give her. She is such a sweet dog and would make a great companion pet for someone. Once she learns the ropes of a new environment, she will be great. She loves to jump up and wrap her arms around me for hugs, and she knows just how much I care about her.  We hopefully will find her a good home."   

Vet Info:  According to her rescue, Polly is spayed and up to date with vaccines. Polly is most likely completely blind. Her rescue tells us that her vet said that, as a very small puppy, she may have been kicked in the mouth by something as she had a huge hole in her upper gum. She was on meds for a while for it, and the vet (a surgeon) said that the hole may close on its own, and her rescue says that it did. Her rescue reports that her overall health is good.   

RESCUE PROFILE: Characteristics: Friendly, Affectionate, Loyal, Playful, Smart, Protective, Brave, Curious, Independent, Loves kisses PLEASE CONSIDER POLLY IF YOU JUST WANT A GREAT COMPANION THAT WILL LOVE YOU UNTIL THE END! ALL ADOPTION FEES WAIVED TO THE RIGHT HOME. Others tell me to "euthanize" her as she is probably not adoptable, but that is not true. She is very adoptable to the right person who will take the time with her, just as if she had her sight. Please help Polly! Polly is a very loving pit mix baby who just needs someone who is experienced in working with blind dogs. She needs to be in a home with an adult(s), no other animals and no children please. Polly is very smart, and even though she is blind, she learns her way around very quickly and does know how to use a doggie door. It took her less than 2 hours to master the "finding" of the doggie door and being able to go in and out as she pleases. She will learn her way around quickly and will not have to be guided if inside a home (once she learns her bearings). Polly is only about 9 months old and she so desperately needs a good home and someone to love and play attention to her. Here is her story: Polly and her sister (adopted months ago) were found in a cow pasture. Polly was sitting in the middle of the pasture just looking around, there was a big black cow just staring down at her. The person who saw the cow knew it was looking at something but didn't know what, so he walked into the pasture to see. Lo and behold, there was little Polly just sitting there staring. He picked her up, found her sister not far from her and called me to see if I could take them in, so I did. At the time I did not know that Polly was blind. She was only about 3 lbs when I got her, and could not see at all. Her mouth had been damaged somehow, when I took her to the vet the vet stated that she had been "hit" or had some sort of blunt force trauma to her mouth (there was a huge hole in her upper gum). We did not do surgery at that time as the vet said it may heal up on its own, and it did. Polly is a super loving pup, but she is blind and CAN NOT be around other pets, or children. Unfortunately, she has to be kenneled alone and does not get the attention she fully deserves. She needs a home with someone who can love her and guide her to her full life, not to have to live out her life in a "kennel" with little interaction. If you may be this person please contact me by phone or email. 214-334-9308 Lee Martin, Pet Lives Matter 2 SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY PLEASE

RESCUE INFORMATION: Polly has been with her rescue for several months, since she was a young puppy. She was found in a cow pasture with her sister dog, and a Good Samaritan brought her to Pet Lives Matter 2. They took her knowing that she was blind but don't have the time or resources to work with her, so they are looking for a great home for her that will be able to give her what she needs to succeed! Polly is an indoor dog confined to one area of the house. She is not housebroken or leash trained. Polly does know that when you tell her no, she needs to stop whatever she is doing. Her rescue confirms that she is good with men and women, and male and female dogs. Polly is a very inquisitive girl, and she loves people. Polly is not possessive with treats, toys, or food. She's never shown aggression to a person or another animal. Polly does not have a bite history. Her rescue feels that she should be able to adapt well to new situations and surroundings despite her blindness.  

Trooper & Oscar - bonded pair

Name: Trooper
Age:    3.5 years
Breed:  American Staffordshire Terrier  , large
Sex:  Male, Neutered
Location:  Gallatin, TN

Trooper's bio & additional pics: 

Name: Oscar
Age:    Info Pending
Breed:  Info Pending
Sex:  Male, Neutered / Intact - Info Pending
Location:  Gallatin, TN

Oscar's bio & additional pics: pending

It has been decided that Trooper and Oscar will be adopted out as pair. Trooper and Oscar are in the same foster home and have formed a very close relationship while in foster mom's care. Trooper has become Oscar's eyes and confidence. Oscar has become Troopers best buddy. Please watch out over the next few days for the full bio on Oscar. He will continue to evolve as he builds confidence, but you can't put a timeline on when a rescue dog will feel fully confident. 

Foster mom can say with confidence, it would be best that Trooper and Oscar go to a home with no other dogs as Oscar does exhibit anxiety when around multiple dogs. They both love other dogs, but the anxiety is apparent; the more dogs the more chaos and Oscar is trying to learn the world without sight, so he gets very nervous, even when Trooper is with him. This could be a temporary reaction but as of now, that will be the request. Foster mom will continue to work with Oscar in regard to being around more dogs but in the meantime, we can only provide a bio based on what we know today and adjust as he adjusts. Foster mom would like to have an adopter that is also familiar with blind dogs.   

VET INFORMATION: Trooper was hit by a car, couldn't walk and left for dead in someone's yard; he was eventually picked up by animal control. Battle for the Bully pulled him from the euthanasia list the day he was scheduled to be euthanized. That's when his new journey started.
Trooper went through an extensive surgery to repair his back limbs and hips. He is now able to walk, even run and play. However, he will need to be kept lean and exercised to ensure the muscles continues to strengthen.

DOG INFORMATION: Trooper is well balanced; a laid-back guy but will get spunky and want to do zoomies 1-2 times daily. He loves to lay in the sun, go for walks, car rides, play with his toys, watch DOG TV and enjoys his peanut butter kong and lick-mats. He also loves to lay with you on the sofa and cuddle. However, he will get feisty and want to hop and play with you too. His personality is bigger than he is! He is enjoying and loving life now that he has his mobility back. He is just missing one thing, his forever family. He is hyper focused on cats, so NO cats. We would like for him to be in a home without small kids. NOT because he doesn't get along with them, but due to his backend. Although he is completely healed, we would like to protect him from any possible injuries due to rough play or small children falling on him. Trooper does play well with other dogs and takes social queues very well. Trooper does get rough at times and is a very vocal player. He would need a low-medium energy dog that will not react to his vocal play or become reactive if Trooper gets a bit rough. He does take correction well from other dogs, as well has his human when playtime is being monitored. He has not been tested with small dogs (dogs smaller than him). Although Trooper tries to get rough, there is a balance that will need to be maintained. He would need a dog similar to him in size, and one that don't rough play in a way that would jeopardize his backend. Ex. running in to him full force, jumping on his back to weigh him down. Trooper needs a human that will take him in and love him unconditionally, despite his few needs due to his back end.

1. No small kids due to them falling on him.
2. No major rough play; be conscious of his backend.




Name: Vegas
Age:    4-5 years
Breed: Shepherd/Husky mix, large, 55# 
Sex:  Female, Spayed
Location:  Jackson County, Kentucky

Please email Laura at: if you are interested in Vegas!  
Please see the link below for Vegas' online profile with her rescue:  

VET INFORMATION: Vegas is spayed and microchipped. She is up to date on vaccinations. Vegas was heartworm positive, but her rescue treated her for it. She is partially blind but sees shadows. Vegas bumps into things in dim lighting. She has a salve that is to be put in her eyes for glaucoma, but Vegas is resistant to having salve or drops put in to the point that her rescue is debating whether it is worth the daily struggle to administer it. Vegas may develop cataracts and eventually be totally blind.
DOG INFORMATION: Vegas is currently with Dragon Dream Team Rescue after having been rescued from the streets.  They're seeking help with placing her because she is a nice dog who gets along with most other dogs, but they feel she'd do better in a calmer home situation.  Vegas is housebroken and leash trained.  She is working on learning to sit and come! 
Vegas is an outgoing girl who is good with men, women, and teenagers.  She's around many different dogs in her foster home, male and female, young and old, and gets along well providing that the other dogs don't jump in her face. 
Vegas has never shown aggression to any person or other animal, and she has no bite history.   Her rescue tells us that Vegas is protective of her home.  She recognizes a stranger and won't let them approach the home. But she is friendly once introduced to them with her owner present. Vegas uses the doggy door to go outside to potty, can remain loose in the house without destroying anything, and gets along with all dogs as long as they do not jump in her face. However, Vegas can be nervous around food and possessive with her food dish. Her rescue says that her food can be left out, but if she is eating, she will bark and jump at any dog who approaches. They tell us that she does guard her food, so if she is eating and another dog comes up, she will pounce at them and growl.  But food is left out, free will, in her foster home and usually all is fine. Vegas has typical husky behavior and listens when she wants to!  She has energy like a husky. Her rescue is recommending a home without children because she can be pushy and jump on you at times.  A fenced-in yard is a must.  She's been on an outing to Tractor Supply with her rescue, and she wagged her tail and greeted all the people she met there.  They tell us that, in her foster home, Vegas seemed to attach herself to one person in the family. The other person has to put a leash on her to make her go outside.  Vegas is very much a house dog!

Thelma & Louise

Name:    Thelma (top photo) and Louise (bottom photo) they can be separated
Age:       Born approx. September 2022
Breed:    Catahoula Leopard Dog, currently 50 pounds, medium/large dog when fully grown
Sex:        Female, spayed
Location:  Sarasota County, FL

 Thelma and Louise are with Englewood Animal Rescue Sanctuary (EARS)    For more information, please contact EARS at

For a sweet video of Thelma and Louise, please visit:

"Hello.  We would like to introduce ourselves.  We are sibling Catahoula Leopard pups: Thelma and Louise.  What makes us special?  We were born blind.  But, we don’t really know what blind is because we have never had vision.  We are like most pups, playful and full of energy.  We manage just fine with our hearing and scent and the help of our foster mom.  She keeps everything consistent and introduces us to new areas slowly until it becomes familiar territory. We have a fenced yard, so we can play outside safely and play we do!  Although we have a lot of fun together, we think a new doggie friend that has vision would be a great help—to keep an “eye” on us, so to speak.  Being blind does not diminish our desire to have a deep and loving relationship with our human being.  Do you want to give it a try?"EARS took in Thelma and Louise at the age of five months when their breeder could not sell them because they are blind.  They are searching for forever homes for these lovely girls!

Vet Info:  Thelma and Louise are up to date on vaccines, spayed, and microchipped.  They have tested heartworm negative.  Both Thelma and Louise are on monthly Revolution to prevent heartworm disease. The girls were born completely blind. 

Dog Info:   Thelma and Louise are indoor dogs with the run of the house.  They're housebroken and leash trained.  They know the cue for Sit!  While the girls can be shy, they are good with people of all ages and male and female dogs.  They are in a foster home with two other dogs and two cats.  Thelma and Louise's rescue tells us that they are a bit defensive when first meeting a new dog but warm up quickly with a slow introduction.  They can be a bit snippy when first meeting a new dog if introduced too quickly.  Thelma and Louise adapt well to new situations and surroundings despite being blind.  Once they get used to new people, animals, and places, they settle in nicely.  EARS believes that they would do best in separate homes as they are young and rambunctious. 


Name: Sammy
Age:    Adult
Breed: Maltese/Poodle Mix 
Sex:  Male
Location:  Miami, FL

PLS READ ENTIRE POST B4 CALLING AND FOR A RESPONSE PLEASE DONT EMAIL.PLEASE CALL..BUT ONLY AFTER READING ALL INFO...NO EMAILS WILL BE RESPONDED TO...ONLY PHONE CALLS...I DONT CHECK EMAILS.. Mostly all questions are answered in this narrative...This is a LONG STORY and not quite sure where to begin..I won't be able to give you all the details here,  because I'm limited to the amt of words I can put here, but if you read everything and you think that you might fit the bill after reading whats written here, when we speak, I would love to tell you the story as to how this transpired. I've been doing independent rescue in Miami for over 30 yrs and although I love every single dog, once in a while one comes along that is a little bit more difficult to have to let go of and pulls more at my heart strings. Little Sammy is that one. It's going to be very hard for me to let him go, but I know it's in his best interest, if I happen to find the right match. 2017 I took the first step and said, 'My name is Heather, and I have a problem and  it's not drugs or alcohol.. it is saving dogs! Made a decision that I couldn't save every dog, although I could try to one at a time, and I wouldn't take any more dogs home, and I kept my promise...up until now. 2021 I was diagnosed with Cancer.  I'm currently on treatment. For now, let me tell you a couple of things that you should know about this little boy and also let me tell you about a couple of things that I'm going to require if you want to consider him . HE MAY HAVE TO HAVE ONE EYE REMOVED AT SOME POINT, AND I'M TRYING TO SAVE HIS VISION ON HIS RIGHT EYE..SOMEONE SERIOUSLY NEGLECTED THIS BABY.. I'VE HAD HIM SINCE EASTER SUNDAY AND WILL SAY SINCE THEN SINCE I'M FOLLOWING PROTOCOL, WE HAVEN'T HAD TO REMOVE THE EYE AND PROGRESS HAS BEEN MADE.  So please have experience with a blind dog, because there is a good chance he might not have any vision at all, he can gain some a little or lose it more and please have a very strong vet reference stating this.  I'm only going to adopt him to somebody that I know is emotionally financially and physically capable of giving him the love and care he needs.  I say physically because he needs eye drops twice a day at least three of them separated about 5 minutes apart so you have to be able to lift him and bend up and down several times a day . He is not heavy but you still have to bend. Now I'm here to make sure he spends the rest of his years loved and cared for with quality and compassion. I'm not sure of his age since his eyes were so neglected, its hard for the vet to pinpoint.  He also needs a dental too, which I plan to do asap but have first been focusing on his eyes which need more attention.  Not sure of his breed either.  Always say 'rescue' is my FAVORITE breed.  He would be a great companion to a retired human or couple who just want to love and be loved and have the knowledge patience and understanding of his needs and more time available, as my issue is I'm dealing with multiple dogs and still have to leave the house some days to work long hours.  Please don't call to adopt him if you are on a fixed income as little Sammy will need good care and no sacrifices. He's currently living with me, and I'm not going to demote him, only promote him. Great news ..he's house trained!! He's good about doing his business outside and another positive even though a male, he DOESN'T lift his leg..he squats!...Short, multiple outings would be best. He doesn't use pee pee pads..can't really see where they are, and he's great in a crate, as a matter of fact, although I don't want him to LIVE in a crate, it's best he sleeps in it and is in it when you're not home for his protection and security. He's still energetic, very loving and seems to be happy.  He needs and craves tons of love.   Probably not best for children, due to being blind. He's very loving and loves to be loved. He's also fine with dogs and cats but probably not best to have him in a home with them, since he tends to bump into them, it can be quite agitating to another animal.  He must be crated when in a vehicle.  He must be taken to the water bowl several times a day, since he cant find it on his own, but he is starting to know where it is.  All this takes patience.  You must have that.  I really want to keep him but with my diagnosis and other pets in the home, I want to give him the opportunity to find love and not hold him back. My promise to Sammy is to make sure I find him the best forever home as long as that might take me with one who will love him for the remainder of his life and continue to let me know how wonderful he is doing and allow me to be a part of his journey. He is a well behaved, sweet, dog. He just cant see and needs a lot of guidance, patience and plenty of love and TLC.  Sammy will be your best friend. Will you be his??  I'm looking to find the perfect person/couple that will give him as much as I am, if not more, for the rest of his life. HE IS THE FRIEND YOU ARE LOOKING FOR AND WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER...WILL YOU LOVE HIM? .All shots are up to date and he will be adopted with any/all medical records from ophthalmologist and all that has been done for this little guy. He will come to you neutered, microchipped (AND MICROCHIP WILL REMAIN IN MY NAME INDEFINITELY), heartworm negative and on heartworm and flea/tick prevention and if you adopt him you MUST keep him on both and up to date with yearly check ups and vaccines, to include visits to ophthalmologist. A phone interview, home check, vet reference and rehoming fee of $400 will be required to adopt little Sammy... PLS DONT EMAIL..PLS CALL Heather 954-534-5606 w/any questions/interest. I HAVE OTHER PHOTOS TO SEND YOU AS WELL ONCE WE CONNECT AND WOULD ENCOURAGE YOU TO MEET HIM W/ME IN PERSON..THANK U SO MUCH FOR YOUR INTEREST IN SAMMY


Name: Bear
Age:    4-6 years
Breed: Labrador Retriever mix, severely underweight but should be a medium dog of about 50# 
Sex:  Male, not neutered
Location:  Davidson County, Tennessee

Bear is with Huckaby's Hope for Paws

If you are interested in Bear, please contact them as noted above!

VET INFORMATION: Bear is severely emaciated.  He is not neutered or microchipped.  He will require a dental exam and cleaning with possible extraction of teeth.  His front teeth are either worn or missing, but his back teeth look good.  Bear is blind but is being treated for dry eye.  His rescue is working with his veterinarian to see if they can resolve this condition and restore his sight.  Bear recently had blood work done, and it came back good, we are told by his rescue.  We have learned that Bear is heartworm positive and has worms and parasites.  He has begun treatment to rid him of the worms and parasites and to clear the heartworms.  Bear is also continuing his steroid and antibiotic eye ointment.  If Bear has gained enough weight by mid-April, he will be neutered then.

RESCUE INFORMATION: Bear is with Huckaby's Hope For Paws Rescue. They brought him into rescue on 3/19/23 in Alabama and shortly thereafter moved him to a foster home in Tennessee where he will receive the TLC he needs to start the journey back to being a healthy dog. Despite his physical condition, Bear is a friendly boy who wants to be loved. He's been a docile and gentle dog. His foster parent says that he is precious and perfect with a coat that is soft as rabbit fur that hasn't been shedding! Bear's confidence is growing daily, and he's living with eight other dogs in his foster home, getting along with everyone. His foster says he's been amazing. Bear's also been around young puppies with no issue, and his foster guesses that he would be the same with cats, especially with dog-savvy cats. Bear has learned to use the doggie door in the house and is adapting well after a decompression period.


Name:  Charlie
Age:  Adult
Breed: Terrier mix
Size: Medium, 30 lbs.
Sex:  Male 
Location:  Roseville, CA

CHARACTERISTICS: Friendly, Loyal, Gentle, Smart, Couch potato, Affectionate, Playful
HEALTH: Vaccinations up to date, spayed / neutered, special needs.
GOOD IN A HOME WITH: Other dogs, cats, children, other animals. Birds.

My name is Charlie and this is my story…I am blind most likely from injuries. I was found starved and tied to a pole unresponsive. They first thought I was dead when they found me.  I can’t remember how long I was tied there with no food or water. I gave up.. laid down.. and started to let the life leave my body..
I was found by a nice animal control officer with the Front Street Animal Shelter - City of Sacramento and taken in to the shelter to save my life. I was so scared in the shelter with all the noises and me bumping into things. But one day a nice lady volunteer came to my kennel and just cried looking at me. She knew she had to get me out of there. She took several videos showing people what my life would be like if I was left in the shelter (bumping into things, shaking, scared, all alone and sad).  
She found me two wonderful fosters who took good care of me. My foster moms say I am quite the character and I don’t let my blindness from stopping me explore. I live in a house with other dogs (I like dogs that give me my space and I give them theirs because I can’t see and don’t know if they will try and hurt me). One of my foster moms had a cat and 5 kids too. I loved playing with the kids and snuggling with them. I loved being held like a baby and being told how much they love me.
I have no problem finding my way to the couch and getting cozy!  I am house trained but needs outside time often. I will find my way into a crate if provided a smaller room or pen area in which to move about, but I don't like the crate to be closed (it scares me that I will be confined and left for dead again, but if you leave the door open I will hang in there happily). I am a big love!!

I am fostered in the Sacramento area.  Charlie is with Martina Animal Rescue in Roseville CA.  Please email

Lou is a special needs dog:
He  was hit by a car and now has limited vision.  He walks confidently outside on leash, and can navigate a room comfortably.  His nose is his primary sense.  He is also guided by our voices.  As Lou's vision is new to him, he can be unsure of other dogs.  He may work best as an only dog, but when introduced properly, we might find that he enjoys company.  Older children only since he can startle at anything unexpected. Lou is friendly with all strangers, and likes to get massages..


Name: Finn 
Sex: Male, neutered 
Breed: English Bulldog/Boxer mix
Age: estimated 1+ years
Size: Medium under 50 pounds

CHARACTERISTICSFriendly, Affectionate, Smart, Loves kisses
HEALTH: Vaccinations up to date, spayed / neutered.

Say hello to sweet Finn. He’s a little over 1 year old, he is a bulldog mix. Finn is a special needs boy as he has no sight in one eye and limited vision in the other. Finn was surrendered to a PA rescue because his owner found herself without a home & was unable to treat his medical issues. Finn’s vision issue was caused by either trauma or an infection, we don’t know.
Finn needs to be an only dog, no exceptions but he LOVES cats! He is very food motivated and an extremely quick learner. He would do best in a quiet home where there are few or no stairs and a fenced in yard is a huge plus! No small children as due to his vision, he may frighten easily. Finn is housetrained and loves car rides. He also loves to sleep on a nice, comfortable couch next to you. He has no other health issues. Finn is not a barker and he’s a small guy, weighing under 50 lbs.
Finn has had a rough start in life, he deserves a home where he is spoiled and loved. Can you be the home for him – let’s make this coming summer the best for sweet Finn!
Finn is being fostered in Camp Hill, PA. Please be sure you have an application on file before you contact us and include a phone number in any correspondence.

Stevie Wonder

Stevie Wonder

Please email or or if you're interested in Stevie Wonder!  
Please note that we will ask for a vet reference.
For a video of Stevie Wonder, please visit:

Name: Stevie Wonder
DOB: 7/22/2022
Breed: Feist (a small hunting dog, descended from terriers)
Size when grown: Medium, 20-25 lbs. 
Sex:  Male, not neutered
Location:  Pike County, AR

Vet Information: Stevie has had 2 distemper/parvo vaccinations since the rescue is able to administer those vaccines.  He has not had a rabies vaccination. Stevie has not seen a vet, been heartworm tested, or microchipped.  His rescue thinks that he may have some vision but it is limited. 

From Stevie Wonder's Rescue:   Stevie was born to a mother who came into his rescue as a stray.  She is a medium sized dog, and his rescue believes that is what he will be. They feel like he would do better in a home with someone that can help with training a dog that is vision impaired.

Stevie is an inside dog that is crated. He is not housebroken or leash trained. He doesn't know any commands and has not had any training.  Stevie is described as being outgoing, good with men, women, and teenagers. He might be fine with smaller children, but he is a puppy who likes to jump when he gets excited. Stevie is good with other dogs, but he has not been around other animals. He is not possessive of toys, treats or food and has never snapped or bitten anyone.  His rescue feels that Stevie would adapt well to new situations and surroundings despite his blindness because he's a happy dog that wants to play and be around people.  His rescue tells us that Stevie is a very sweet boy that is a very active puppy.  They believe he'd benefit from a home that can dedicate time to training and socializing him.

His Rescue Would Like You To Know:  "He would love to play with other dogs.  He's very sweet but needs some training. I have to keep him crated because I have other dogs in my rescue, and I don't want him to get hurt. I believe he has some vision if you are very close to him."

Rescue Information:  Stevie Wonder is with Dime's Legacy Animal Sanctuary  and


For a video of Apollo from chain to freedom, please visit:

Please email or message if you are interested in Apollo!
Name: Apollo
Age: between 2 and 3 years old
Breed: Mastiff mix/unknown
Size: Large, approx. 90# 
Sex:  Male, neutered
Location:  Hawkins County, Tennessee

Vet Information:  Apollo is neutered and microchipped. He has tested negative for heartworm. Apollo has been to a veterinary ophthalmologist and was diagnosed with 'suspected corneal dystrophy, both eyes'. This is likely genetic. He is partially blind but worsening. He has some vision but his eyes seem to be getting more cloudy. He can jump on/off the deck and run up/down the steps now. However if a new obstacle is added he often runs into it but then learns to go around. Otherwise, Apollo is healthy. He does well when he visits the vet.

Rescue Information:   Last summer, Apollo was found abandoned and on a chain with another dog and puppies who have since been adopted through A Voice For Pets, which is Apollo's rescue. Due to his size and special needs, A Voice For Pets is still seeking the right family for Apollo.

From Apollo's Rescue: Apollo is an outdoor dog with a fenced yard.  He's not housebroken, but, if let out regularly, he keeps a clean kennel. Apollo will have 'accidents' if outside time gets delayed. His rescue is working on teaching him the cue for Sit, but he definitely needs basic training.  Apollo isn't leash trained, but with use of an EasyWalk harness, he does well on a leash.

Apollo is an outgoing pup who is good with men, women, and teenagers.  His rescue uses a kennel set up to allow each dog their own space. Apollo plays with the female Lab next to him through the kennel fence. He and the Lab share toys back and forth under the kennel rail. Apollo socializes with the others through the kennels when out. If they bark at him, he moves on. When new dogs have been put next to him he is often defensive initially through the kennel fence.  He may be food protective, but his rescue isn't certain about that. The rescue believes with slow introductions he would be dog friendly, especially with calm females. Since so many of the dogs in the rescue have issues of their own, they have not had the opportunity to directly test Apollo. His rescue would not recommend he be with small animals at this time.  Apollo barks at delivery persons but not aggressively.
Apollo's rescue says that he adapted great when he got there, so they believe that he adapts well to new situations and surroundings despite being visually impaired.

His Rescue Would Like You To Know:  "We can continue fostering but feel he could benefit in a home environment and more 1:1 teaching/training. He is very sweet. He is gentle when calm but a bit of a 'bull in a china shop' when excited. He has had limited experiences in his life and gets so excited when given attention and playtime. He's like a puppy in a giant body. We love him but he deserves so much more than a 10x10 kennel for a home. He is happy to be chain free though."

Meet Lilly, a sweet Anatolian/Great Pyrenees 1-yr old pup. Lilly had a rough start in life. She was dumped on our property, together with her sister Mira, which was pretty traumatizing. Unfortunately, we found out that she’s visually impaired. Even though she can’t see much, it doesn’t stop her from playing with the other dogs in our care. She loves to wrestle, play in the sandbox, or demand some cuddles from us. You can find many pictures and videos of Lilly on our FB page IM DINGO Dog Rescue. Lilly will need a fenced in yard, no children in her home, calm environment, someone who understands her special needs and will be home with her the majority of the time.

Meet Mira. This is the sweetest girl you will ever meet. Mira was dumped on our property, together with her sister Lilly. Unfortunately, Mira was so scared, she ran off before we could secure her. She lived on her own, at 4 months of age, for 17 days and SURVIVED! We named her Mira, short for Miracle. Mira wants to be everyone’s (dog) friend, but always stays close to her sister Lilly. These two girls always smile and enjoy running and wrestling all over our property.

Due to them not being properly socialized, they are both very shy.  They will need a calm environment, with not a lot of foot traffic. They will give you lots of love and even more laughter. They are both dolls!

Are you looking for a low-maintenance pair, please look no further. They truly are a joy to be around.


Adorable Buddy is in a foster home with Main Line Shelter in Chester Springs, PA.

From Buddy's Shelter:  
Buddy: 4 years, 4 months old 
Breed: Mixed Breed 
Sex: Male 
Size: Large, 56 pounds

SEE NO EVIL! HEAR NO EVIL! Our beautiful Buddy may have limited vision & no hearing, but surprisingly he acts like any normal dog. To start with, Buddy has the softest, most velvety, most plushy white coat that is hard to keep your hands off. Fortunately for Buddy, he adores petting & prolonged cuddles. He is so super affectionate that he will fall asleep in your arms if you keep petting him. But Buddy is an action dog too. You can leash walk him anywhere (he walks very nicely on a leash), & he never bumps into anything. He is very well housebroken & has no trouble finding trees or posts to lift his leg against. And Buddy enjoys a really good run too! In the big fenced yard, Buddy will suddenly get the zoomies & will take off at a furious pace around & around the yard, never bumping into anything. In the Home School Room, Buddy is a whiz at doing dog puzzles in which treats are hidden. He finds every treat & then finds your pocket to see if you might have any extra treats. When he tires of exploring the room, he jumps up onto the couch next to you & will fall asleep if you cuddle him. 

In some respects, Buddy puts his limitations to his advantage. Because he is deaf, Buddy is immune to the constant barking in the kennel & he finds it easy to maintain his calm disposition. Buddy would love a home with another nice calm dog & a fenced yard for safety. He is really a very well adjusted, joyful, affectionate, playful, & easy going dog who is so grateful for human attention & who will steal your heart as soon as you meet him!

Buddy came to the PSPCA in August of 2022 from ACCT in Philly. He came in with 2 other deaf/blind dogs who all came from the same house prior to being surrendered to ACCT when their owner could no longer care for them. They were presumed bonded, but after getting to know them, our team determined they could be separated, as it would be easier to find them homes this way, and they seemed comfortable and happy when apart. Buddy's brothers have since been adopted and he's left waiting for his forever home!

Buddy originally had a lot of trouble adjusting to the kennel environment and would spin and bark in his kennel, but has since really settled in and found his rhythm. He sits patiently in his kennel, waiting for friends to take him out. He is friendly with all people and absolutely loves other dogs. He was briefly in a foster home, but unfortunately the foster's resident dog became aggressive towards Buddy, and the foster parent was unable to separate them to prevent her dog from going after Buddy. He was returned to the shelter in December and has been there ever since!  Buddy has recently been moved to another foster home. He's a really nice man, we're hoping someone will step up and provide him the TLC he deserves.

Name: Keenan 
Age: Senior, 10 years
Breed: Husky mix
Size: Large, 50 lbs.
Sex: Male, neutered
Location: Hardin County, Texas

My name is Keenan and I was adopted from the Houston Humane Society in 2013 as a puppy and in March of 2022, my family decided they could "no longer walk me" (health reasons, perhaps, theirs not mine). So I found myself at 10 years old back in the care of the Houston Humane Society. A representative from BFF Pet Adoptions was over there for an event and she saw me and knew my fate, being 10 years young. So she asked if she could pull me into BFF and she was allowed to do now I am ready for my "true forever home". I am a sweet boy, no accidents in my kennel. I walk well on a leash and I just want to live out the rest of my days in the lap of luxury. I have many good years left, so please consider adding me to your family. Seniors are the best.. NONE of those crazy puppy antics. I do seem to have some sight issues and that is no big deal. I do need a home with a tall, secure fence, as huskies are known for being escape artists. Here at BFF I walk around looking up at the top of a 10 foot fence. I am up to date on vaccines, am neutered and heartworm negative. My adoption fee is $200.00. For additional pictures and information click here:

Vet Information:  Keenan is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and has had a negative heartworm test. He is vision impaired due to age, and his vision is continuing to deteriorate. Keenan's rescue believes that his vision is very blurred and that he doesn't see much clearly but that he sees movement.

Dog Information:   Keenan had been adopted from a shelter in Houston as a pup in 2013 and was surrendered back to them in March 2022. He was pulled from the shelter and taken in by a local rescue, BFF Pet Adoption. He has been with them for about two months.  Keenan is an indoor dog with the run of the house. He is housebroken and leash trained. He knows the cue for sit. Keenan is an outgoing boy who is good with people of all ages and other dogs. He is not possessive with treats, toys, or food, and he has never shown aggression to people or other animals. He has no bite history.

Trouble is no trouble!!  He is an independent boy who is happy just doing his own thing.  He is very sweet and loves going for walks. He is visually impaired so he really enjoys exploring the world through scent and touch.  He does hyper-focus on toys to the point where it is difficult to get them back, he may even ignore everything else to try and find the toy.  Trouble should only be adopted by a family with children over age 16, and he needs to be an only pet.

Lenie Lemon, Paws New England

Lenie Lemon

Name: Lenie Lemon
Age: Young, approximately 2 years old
Breed: Pit Bull mix
Size:  45 lbs.
Sex: Female, spayed
Location: Massachussetts

No Cats 
Special Needs 

Lenie Lemon is a very special girl to our rescue who needs someone that either has experience with blind dogs or has the desire to learn more about them. We learned a lot about Lemon recently as she was with a family for two months – while she was not a great match for them (she absolutely despised their cat and made it known), they were able to help us understand her a bit more so we can find her next spot. Prior to her adoption, she had been living in a boarding situation and as such it was nearly impossible to know what she’d be like in a home situation. Lemon is a fast learner who loves snuggling, easily shows her belly when it’s time for rubs. She’s quiet in her crate and will go in to settle. She is great in the car and loves trail walks and does great on them. She loves to play with toys and loves her bones. She’s super affectionate with her person. Some of her challenges are puppy mouthiness and learning to not use her mouth to get what she wants. She can become overstimulated easily so teaching her to settle is a work in progress and will need to continue. She seems to think that most things are hers and may react when you try to take them away from her – we’ve asked her current fosters (she’s in boarding at a trainer) to work on this with her. Her former foster did say however she was showing progress with this and seemed to be gaining ground – for this reason, no children for this girl for now. Obviously, her blindness can lead her to be easily started when approached quickly without warning.
We want this to be Lemon’s last home so will be sure to be careful choosing where she lands. She’s so affectionate that anyone will be lucky to have her! 

12/20 update: Lenie Lemon is still looking for her forever home. Lemon has become comfortable with one of our dogs that we have done slow introductions with. We are working on the other one. She has the full family room as her living area. Each day she is in the full house while we put the cats in a safe room. Lemon crates extremely well. She loves bananas and any treat. Taking a large treat or cookie gently is much improved. Lemon knows many commands and used them all flawlessly at the vet the other day. She walks well on a leash as long as she has a harness rather than a collar. She doesn't try to play tug of war with it when she is in a harness. When we both have to work longer days, we hire a friend's teen to come sit with her, let the dogs in and out and play with her. Lemon loves hide and go seek! She is doing well with clicker training now that we can give her treats more easily. She really just wants to be with you and loves everyone she meets once she can figure out who they are and have a slow meeting to smell them enough. Then she is best friends. 

Vaccinations: Up to date
Heartworm: Negative
Microchipped: Yes

Good with Children: Over 12
Good with Dogs: Has done well with dogs in the past - would need slow intros
Good with Cats: Absolutely no 
Gidget & Pepper, Heartland Rescue Ranch

Gidget & Pepper

Meet Gidget.  When poor Gidget was rescued, she had a double eye infection, which she was treated for.  However the vet believes she will not regain her sight.  The vet said she has corneal scaring.   Gidget is now in foster care and is reported to be doing very well.  Gidget is said to be house broken, good with adults, kids and cats.  Gidget is with Heartland Rescue Ranch, in Southport, Florida. 
For more information on this sweetheart or to adopt her, visit: Gidget is still  looking for her forever home as of 7/6/23 and has bonded with Pepper. Some additional updated information on Gidget: "The brown dog is her best friend, Pepper. They are in a foster home together and have become the best of friends, so ideally we would love it if they would be adopted together. Pepper is visually impaired due to untreated eye infection, blind in one eye and limited vision in the other. We would love for her to be adopted with her ‘service dog’. They are both great dogs! Pepper is about a year old. Very playful. They have both been fostered with dogs and cats. Great with children. Both spayed and vaccinated. Transport can be available.
Brad, My Next Pet


I am blind.
Please contact My Next Pet in the Charlotte, NC metro area.
Brad is still looking for his forever home. Brad was found hungry, weak and injured by rescuers with the Beagle Freedom Project. They mercifully took him in to save his life and cared for him until a foster home with Animal Adoption League was able to commit. After rescue, it was sadly discovered that Brad had not only been neglected, but was also heartworm positive and completely blind. It has been a long journey of recovery for Brad, but he is now thriving in his foster home. He is completely heartworm free and healthy now! Brad is doing remarkably well living the indoor life and loves living with other friendly pets. He not only adores playing with other dogs, but also relies on them for many cues due to his blindness. He definitely needs a kind dog friend in his forever home! Brad is also great with cats and does not react to them at all. He also has been around children as young as 7 and is wonderful with them too. Brad has been working with a professional trainer to learn how to navigate life as a blind gentleman. This has helped his confidence soar as he has learned basic obedience, navigation commands and now loves going on long walks with ease. *His adoption includes a session with his trainer to help him and his new family adjust. Brad is a very special pup who will make a wonderful addition to a home that is dedicated to his well-being and comfort. He is not high maintenance and likes to spend a lot of time cuddling on the couch in a pile of blankets. To meet this handsome guy, please fill out an application:

Diva is still in need of a home as of August 2022

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? 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…/

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.
