Shadow is a 4 year old, 80 lb black Labrador retriever mix. She has beautiful fur and is fully vetted. Shadow was an owner surrender because she was blind with cataracts. She is being tested at the University of Tennessee vet school to see if cataract removal and insertion of new lenses is an option. Shadow is house trained and uses a doggy door. She has no problem with other dogs and stays close to her foster's side. She will need a fenced yard for her own safety. Shadow loves to sleep in your arms. She is a sweet, wonderful dog who loves people and children.
Shadow had her eye operation on her right eye and has limited vision in that eye. The other eye had a detached retina so cataract surgery would not have helped her have sight in that eye. She may have retina degeneration in the right eye but so far (after 2 months) the eyesight has been stable. She loves to swim and go long walks in the woods.
