Forever Home Wanted: Meet Popeye and Olive!! This odd couple was surrendered to the dreaded San Bernardino Shelter by their owner. Olive, the black female, is deaf and Popeye, the yellow male, is blind. They are bonded siblings.
Popeye and Olive are very even-tempered and gentle. They love adults, kids, other friendly dogs (their size and smaller), car rides, are gentle taking treats, do well in the house, sleep through the night and do not need to be crated. Both are very laid back and do not require significant exercise.
Olive is a little “Deaf,” hearing only in close proximity. She’s good on a leash and very alert when walking in her neighborhood. Olive walks between 30 min up to hour depending on the weather. She prefers walking in cooler weather. She likes to play fetch the ball but would rather be with you in sight-seeing range. She knows basic commands, sit, lie, come, off, and wait.
Popeye is “Blind” but doesn’t require any significant special care. He adapts to his surroundings quickly. He’s a routine dog and knows what time is breakfast and dinner and when he goes for a walk. Popeye walks well on leash in familiar areas and prefers short walks (30 minutes or less) in the cool evenings. As a blind dog he needs to be introduced slowly to new areas to allow him to acclimate.
These two are adorable, petite, gentle and very loving. We would love to get them into a forever home. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out our online application at www.labradorsandfriends.org. They are located in Southern California.
