Pit Bull Terrier

Available for adoption!

Meet Atom! He is a 4 year-old Pit Mix with the biggest heart you will ever see. He is the sweetest soul, and is looking for that special someone who will love to snuggle all day!

He has gone through quite a few changes in the last couple of months. He was diagnosed with Blastomycosis at the end of January, which spread to his eyes. Unfortunately the inflammation caused him to develop retinal detachments and glaucoma, making him irreversibly blind. He underwent surgery to remove his eyes at the same time as his neuter, and has been healing well ever since.

He has adapted well to being blind. Atom is a big couch potato at heart, and loves to snuggle up on a lazy day. He also loves to go on walks, play with chew toys, and just spend time with the family.

He still has a few more months of treatment to clear all the blasto from his system, but is making great progress everyday!
