Ray

 Name:         Ray
Age:              @14 weeks
Weight:     12 pounds
Breed:         Pit/Cattle Dog mix
Color:          Brindle
Location:   Las Vegas, NV


Ray is perfectly imperfect, he exudes warmth and happiness like rays of sunshine! Ray was born blind and while the vet believes he does see blobs he functions like a baby with no sight but those ears help guide him! He is about 14 weeks old, 12lbs, a pittie, maybe cattle dog mix, we aren't sure but what it is is C-U-T-E! Ray, his two siblings and mom were found as strays a few weeks back and landed in a rural shelter, it didn’t take the shelter staff long to realize Ray was special.
He quickly became a favorite and shelter leadership were desperate to find him a better place as a shelter is no place for any puppy let alone a blind one.
Ray needs an owner who can take the time to show him the ropes. He is doing well where he currently is but they have their hands full with many other special needs dogs and Ray needs more 1:1 time to really thrive and become the very best boy. He is dog and cat friendly.
We provide anything he needs for foster!

Drake

 Name:         Drake
Age:               8 years
Breed:          Springer Spaniel
Color:           Liver/White
Sex:                Male, neutered
Weight:      30 Pounds
Location:    North Alabama

Drake is currently with Paws 52 Rescue. 
If you are interested in learning more about him, please reach out to paws52rescue@gmail.com!

Drake is an 8 year old boy, who had been neglected the majority of his life and left in a backyard. He was ultimately dumped at a local shelter, where he was severely matted with casting on his legs and tail. Since being dumped he has had a full grooming, been fully vetted, and is learning to trust people + all the good things life has to offer! He does best with slow introductions where he approaches people first due to being unable to see fully. We believe he can see shadows, but that his cataracts are advanced and he is mostly blind. He love love loves toys and his absolute favorites are the lamby toys! Drake specifically has a purple lamb that he carries around with him everywhere he goes!! He would do best in a quiet home with no children, he does like other slower paced dogs. We can provide more pictures + information upon request!

Stevie

 Name:          Stevie
Age:               3 months
Breed:          Husky mixed breed
Color:           Tan/Cream
Sex:                Male
Weight:      will be large sized
Location:    Wilkes County, NC

Stevie is back. Stevie is a blind male husky mix. He is now about 3 months old.

This blind pup will change the way you see the world. He will inspire you with his upbeat personality. His intelligence as he learns to navigate his world is a constant reminder of what we can do if we only try. The bravery he faces every day will stir your heart. If you want to adopt this magnificent soul, you need to know that Stevie will change your life as well.
Stevie likes to be outside. He cannot, however, be outside unless your yard is fenced. Stairs if you have them will need to be learned. In fact if you adopt this awesome puppy, his new home will need to be learned. He’s had a great start. He’s good if somewhat oblivious of other dogs. He is crate trained and can be crated all night without an accident. If he is to stay indoors, you will have to teach him his surroundings. He may need to be leashed at first to keep him from hurting himself. Do not apply to adopt Stevie if you’re not willing or able to spend the time with him to train him. He will need help to adjust. He will be large and fluffy. He’ll need brushed.

Marlin

 Name:          Marlin 
Age:               5 months
Breed:          Mixed breed
Color:           White Merle
Sex:                Male, to be neutered
Weight:      medium sized
Location:    Qatar
If you’re interested in Marlin from Paws Rescue Qatar, please reach out to volunteer Kyla at obxkyla@gmail.com.

Marlin is a 5 month old mixed breed puppy that was rescued off the streets of Qatar when he was 2 months old. A volunteer found the litter of puppies in a ditch and began giving them water everyday to help them survive in the 120 degree heat. Marlin appears to have been born blind in both eyes (as none of his siblings have vision loss) but he still gets around amazingly well! He loves to play tug with his siblings and will play with toys if he’s able to smell where they are. Paws Rescue Qatar is looking for a home for Marlin in the US as adoptions in the Middle East rarely happen, even less so with a special needs dog. The rescue will pay for all travel costs to get Marlin to the US and he will have all vaccinations complete, a rabies titer test completed for CDC compliance, and will be neutered. If you’re interested in seeing more pictures or videos of Marlin, please reach out to Kyla.

Jasper

 Name:          Jasper 
Age:               2 - 2 1/2 years
Breed:          Mixed breed
Color:           White Merle
Sex:                Male, neutered
Weight:      35-40 pounds
Location:    Baldwyn, MS with ability to transport anywhere   

I'm Jasper, the four-legged wonder with a tale to tell. My journey began in the small town of Baldwyn, MS. I don't remember much about those early days, but I do know I had to fend for myself. Somehow, I found solace behind a bank, nestled in the grass. It's a miracle I wasn't squished by a car or overlooked by passersby.

But luck was on my side. A kind soul spotted me and reached out to Jericho Rescued Fur Babies for help. That's when my life changed forever. They took me in, blind and partially deaf, but full of spirit. I do have a cherry eye that the vets here cannot fix. I was born blind and have eye abnormalities. My 3rd eyelid (the one with the cherry) is inverted. I am very smart and in just a couple of weeks he learned the layout of my foster home and backyard.

Despite my disabilities, I'm quite the smarty-paws. Navigating through a house is a breeze for me, just like any other dog. I'm even housebroken, if I do say so myself! And playing? Oh, I love it. Even if I can't always tell when my playmates wander off, the joy of their company is enough.

My sense of smell? Well, let's just say it's my superpower. I may not see or hear like other pups, but my nose knows its way around. Give me a huge fenced yard, and I'll sniff my way back home with ease. I just lift my nose to the air and follow the familiar scents like a furry detective.

Now, I'm on the lookout for a forever home. Despite my challenges, I'm ready to shower someone with love, loyalty, and a whole lot of sniffs. So, if you're in need of a canine companion with a heart as big as his sense of smell, look no further. I'm Jasper, and I'm ready for my next adventure.

Tophy

 Name:          Tophy 
Age:               approx 2 months as of 4/2024
Breed:          Unknown, but cute
Color:           White/Tan
Sex:                Female, too young to spay
Weight:      Small
Location:    Mexico    

This is from Stray Paws Loreto, a 501 (c)(3) organization in Loreto, Mexico, that rescues abandoned, stray, abused dogs off the streets of Mexico. We are not a shelter, we rely on volunteers to foster our rescued pups, which sadly we have very few of. They have had fifty puppies dropped off in the past few weeks in boxes and bags.

We have a 2 month old puppy named Tophy, who was found a few weeks ago with a head injury. She has been under treatment, and while her brain swelling has subsided, sadly she remains blind. The head injury was most likely from abuse. Tophy’s vet believes she might be able to see shadows in her left eye. Breed is unknown, (we call them Mexican Street Dogs mix), but oh she is a sweetheart! Right now she is living on an empty lot with about 18 other dogs. She has had her first round of vaccines. Her second round of vaccines are scheduled for the 25th.
If you able to take her in as a rescue, we can get her to you in the United States.

If anyone has room for this sweet Mexican street dog named Tophy please email Jenh646@hotmail.commake sure to include Tophy’s name in the subject line.

Shiloh

 Name:          Shiloh 
Age:               adult
Breed:          Beagle Mix
Color:           White/Tan
Sex:                Male, 
Weight:      @ 40 pounds
Location:    Marion County, TN     


If you are interested in helping Shiloh please contact Shela with Marion County Animal Resource at sbrazeale@yahoo.com

Shiloh is a sweet, probably two year old beagle mix with a terrific sunny outlook.

I took Shiloh in as a foster about a month ago. We have posted far and wide, but no one has claimed him. Shiloh was found wandering on a busy street and seemed exhausted and confused. He was scared, but welcomed a meal and a safe place to rest.

He was shy at first, but after about five days he came out of his shell and started enjoying life with our pack.

He has learned to walk on a leash with our dogs, but I have to steer him or he bumps into fences etc.

He has never had an accident in the house, and asks to go out. He gets along with all our dogs and is fascinated by our indoor cats (but they want nothing to do with him).

Shiloh is very affectionate and sleeps in a crate with the door open at night (and several times during the day lol). He eats with the other dogs and shows no food aggression.

Shiloh probably sees shapes in full light, but not much else. He needs a home that can help him maneuver on walks and keep him safe. He returns the gift with wags and hugs

Please contact Shela at sbrazeale@yahoo.com if you can help this sweet puppy.

Marley

 ***😍Awesome Marley is still looking for his forever home. Please share him far and wide so his forever family can find him.😍*** 
Name: Marley 
Fixed: neutered 
Chipped: yes 
Vaccinations: up to date Heartworm prevention: yes monthly and hw negative 
Age: 8-9 yrs old Breed: yellow (white) lab 
Weight : 70 lbs, large 
currently located in Arlington Tx he is available in the PNW, NE, and Tx (would consider other US areas for the right adopters) 

Marley is a typical, sweet, goofy lab with a great disposition and medium energy level. He loves to play fetch and tug o war, going for walks and rides, toys of any kind but especially balls. He is food motivated, and quick/eager to learn. He is house, leash, potty trained and uses a doggie door too. He knows many commands: careful, drop it, come, stay, go lay down, outside, go potty, go get it, bring it here, sit, up, down, stop, etc. Marley is good with other gentle, large, older dogs. Indifferent to cats. Marley is permanently blind with cataracts in both eyes, but it does not deter or stop him in any way. Our vet believes his blindness is genetic and he may have been born that way. He quickly learns the layout of his home and yard. He also has the beginning of arthritis in his hind left hock/ankle. Otherwise he is a healthy, happy boy. Because Marley is blind and may accidently knock/trip over small dogs and children, older kids and large breed dogs are his ideal housemates. He would do great as an only dog too. Marley has not been around livestock to our knowledge. Marley was rescued from the Hillsboro Tx Animal Shelter after being found in an abandoned rental car, dehydrated, underweight, very weak, with numerous deep cuts on his back and tail.


Marley is with Big Dog Rescue Project in Washington State.

Toby

Name:          Toby
Age:               Born July 2023
Breed:          Elkhound Mix
Color:           Black/Tan
Sex:                Male, neutered
Weight:      30 pounds
Location:   Sandston, VA

Toby is a lovely puppy that is a joy to be with! Not only is he adorable, but he is super sweet and very playful. Toby and his litter mates came to us recently from a NC shelter where they had been surrendered by their owner, likely due to their vision impairment. All three are lovely, older pups, and will be wonderful companions to their adoptive families. Toby will likely be 30-35 pounds when fully grown and he is a perfect size for most homes! He is in good health, neutered, microchipped, and fully vaccinated. We are seeking a home with an adopter who has the ability to work from home or otherwise able to spend a good part of each day with this sweet boy. A home with a fenced, secure yard will give Toby room to run and play safely with his new family. Toby may not be well suited to small children or very small dogs who could be upset by his enthusiasm, but will fit nicely into many other homes.

Our adoption process starts with your email to carerescue@aol.com or Petfinder inquiry. After we receive it, we will email you our prescreening questionnaire. Your answers will help us determine that your home and lifestyle matches the needs of Toby as well as our adoption criteria. Once determined, we will set up a private meeting with your family and Toby at a park near our private kennel just east of Richmond. After meeting him and determining that it matches your preferences for a pet, we will accept your application. A home visit by one of our trained volunteers is required for all adoptions, and we will speak with your vet to ensure that you are a responsible pet owner.

Mary "Mama" Puppins

Name:          Mary "Mama" Puppins
Age:               About 1.5 years
Breed:          Possible Lab/Pit Mix
Color:           Brown
Sex:                Female, Spayed
Weight:      Medium sized
Location:   Olathe, KS

Meet Mary Puppins, or “Mama” as the shelter staff call her. We believe she is a lab/pit mix. She was dumped at the shelter locked in a kennel outside in October 2023, blind and pregnant. She had 7 chunky puppies born on Halloween that she successfully raised and was a GREAT mom! She kept her babies clean and quite plump! All of her puppies have been adopted, leaving “Mama” here all alone… 5 months in a kennel here has been a challenge for mama, as other dogs scare her. She would definitely do best in a home where she can be the queen of the house (the only dog). She loves people and would likely do well with kids when introduced properly. She does jump up to greet you, so older kids would probably be best. We think she would thrive in a home with experience caring for visually impaired animals, as she is still young (approximately 1 year 4 months) and would benefit from some training and manners. Mama is a beautiful girl with the softest coat, and she really needs a chance at a forever home. Mama is fully vaccinated, spayed, microchipped and ready for a home. We hope someone will love her just as much as we do!

Brutus

Name:          Brutus
Age:               @ 3 years
Breed:          Boxer
Color:           Brown/Black
Sex:                Male
Weight:      Large
Location:   Adoption area is MA, CT, RI, NY, NJ, ME, VT, NH, MD, PA

Facebook post:
Please meet Brutus! He is a sweet boy who is visually impaired, but he doesn't let that hold him back! He’s a super happy guy who can quickly become familiar in a new environment. Once he adjusts and learns to navigate his new space, there is no stopping him! Brutus likes other dogs, but can become confused and nervous if the other dog is very vocal or too enthusiastic for his liking. He would do well as an only pet or with a low key female who is gentle and can read his social cues. We do have one very big requirement for his forever home; since he will never be able to see how stunningly handsome he is, you must tell him multiple times a day!

Ray

Name:          Ray
Age:               Adult
Breed:          Beagle
Color:           Tri-color (brown/black/white)
Sex:                Male, neutered
Weight:      Small
Location:   Prairieville, LA

Ray is a sweet, handsome boy. A kind lady took him in from a rural shelter when she realized he would be left outside in a kennel during freezing temperatures. That would have been very difficult for Ray because he’s blind. He’s been vaccinated, neutered, and tested heartworm positive. He's accustomed to being in a crate. He gets along with kids too!!

It’s really pretty easy owning a blind dog. They get around very well

He is currently with Hokie's Hounds Beagle Rescue.

Pumpkin

Pumpkin is a very sweet and gentle 8-10 year old girl that is in need of a forever home. She has had a very sad beginning of her life and is looking forward to finding out what a loving home is like. Pumpkin was found wandering a field alone in KY, blind and almost starved to death. She was obviously neglected without vet care for quite some time. She is now in a foster home in NY and has gained weight and is getting the care she needed. She is a diabetic so will need injections twice a day (insulin cost is $34 for medicine and syringes which will last over a month).
The injections are easy and she doesn't mind them at all. She is a happy girl who loves all people and school aged kids, she is housebroken, quiet and has learned the layout of her foster home well, she doesn't need a crate, she likes to go for short walks and does perfect on leash, she is perfect in the car.
She would prefer a home as the only dog as she gets alarmed when dogs get in her space as she can't see their body language. She is in foster with a calm submissive dog that gives her space and that works ok. She is so loving and sweet and will be an easy going companion. We love her and she really deserves to find her family!

Artie

Name:         Artie 
Age:              11 months 
Breed:         Australian Shepherd mix 
Sex:               Male, neutered 
Location:  Dunlap, TN   

Vet Info:  This is Artie, short for Artemis. Artie is an 11 month old high energy Aussie mix. He didn’t have the best start in life. He was left to just roam around on his own for several months with no discipline or training before being rescued. The rescue fully vetted him, shots and neutering, and he was then accepted in Australian Shepherd Furever.

Dog Info:  Artie is ready for his forever home! Artie is special needs, as he is completely blind. He has done so well in his foster home. Please read what his foster mom has to say about him.
Artie has been in a foster home for the past almost three weeks. He is a lively boy filled with curiosity about the world. He loves the sound of planes overhead and the rustle of the leaves in the wind and the feel of the sun and wind on his face. He is potty trained (but taken out quite often). He loves being in the house with his people and running outside with his two Aussie friends at the foster home. He is also crate trained and rarely puts up a bark about going into the crate. He loves the contents of a full toy basket and will empty it to make sure he shares his attention with each toy. He especially loves a squawking chicken! (Don’t let him take it to bed with him.)He is learning some commands but still needs a lot more training as he is easily distracted.
Oh, and did I mention, Artie is totally blind, since birth, evidently, and that accounts for his easy distraction and eager exploration of the world. He is so engrossed in finding his way and finding new things that trainers must be patient with him. You would not know he blind as he maneuvers around the house and outside. He bumps into things occasionally, but he keeps right on going. He may detect light and movement of shapes. He is definitely food driven and will follow you anywhere if you have treats. I have hopes that Artie will become a very enjoyable and loved family pet as he is not aggressive or reactive in the least and has a soft mouth when playing with toys and loves a good pet and scratch. Artie would do well with a companion dog, preferably a larger dog as he can be a little rough when playing, but Artie is also very capable of entertaining himself with his toys and would do well as an only “child” because he loves his people and wants to be wherever they are. He DEFINITELY needs a fenced yard so he can run and play without veering off in a wrong direction.
He needs that fence, continued leash training as that is a work in progress, a loving human who is patient and can help guide him through the world and keep him safe, and someone who will be dedicated to training him to just be a dog, not a blind dog, just a beloved family dog.
He will love you, and you will love him. He is ready for adventures. Check out Artie.

Gizmo

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:  http://www.aaprescue.org/



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.

Brownie

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  https://theanimalpad.org/  
 Contact them at:  ejg.theanimalpad@gmail.com 
 Brownie is on Instagram!  Check here for daily updates:   https://www.instagram.com/mr_brownie_the_blind_wonder/  
 Visit Brownie's online profile and more photos of him at:   https://theanimalpad.org/adoptable/brownie/

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: https://theanimalpad.org/adoption-application/

"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. 
Flash

Flash

Age:              DOB 7/22/22
Breed:         Feist (a small hunting dog, descended from terriers), will most likely be a medium                                     sized dog when adult
Sex:               Male, not neutered
Location:   Pike County, AR

For videos of Flash, please visit: https://youtu.be/T4YVVSS73M4 andhttps://youtu.be/auWgNfJPc2c

Rescue Information: Flash is with Dime's Legacy Animal Sanctuary https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100063763854284and
Please email nitaf3941@gmail.com or nlfant1999@gmail.com if you're interested in Flash!


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

From Flash's Rescue: Flash 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.

Flash 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. Flash 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. Flash 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 Flash 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 Flash 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."

Apollo

For a video of Apollo from chain to freedom, please visit: https://youtu.be/8_kdVHO85G8

As of 5/2/24 Apollo is still very much in need of a home.
 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."

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.

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 10yrs old back in the care of the Houston Humane Society.A representative from BFF Pet Adoptions was over in there for an event and she saw me and knew my fate, being 10 yrs young. So she asked if she could pull me into BFF and she was allowed to do that...so 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 will do best in a home with NO CATS!!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 ft fence.
I am up to date on vaccines, am neutered and heartworm negative. My adoption fee is $200.00. There is an application process. This doesn't lock you in, it just gets the process started. A home visit will be done."
