Last December her owner was murdered and she was given to a neighbor to care for in hopes that a relative of her owner would come for her. When no one came for her, the neighbors called animal control to pick her up. She had been waiting at the shelter for several weeks before we were contacted, During that time several of the staff members became attached and worried about her future,as she is blind. We did not hesitate to take her, as we know that we will find that perfect home for her.
We don’t know much about her, other than her owner was a man, and she was hit by a car when she was a puppy which, we are told, caused her blindness. One eye was ruptured and the other has a detached retina. She is approximately a year old, and we are guessing that she may be a Sheltie mix of sorts. We immediately took her to a veterinarian, where it was decided to take out the ruptured eye and spay her at the same time. She is pictured here 3 days after her surgeries.
We do know that she must have been very loved by her owner. She will jump up when you go to pick her up, She loves to be held like a baby and hugs you tightly with her head. She is also not a dog to pity, as she is very self confident and once she knows the area, you would never know that she was blind. She does, however, need a special.home that understands how to be her guide dog in strange places, and her limitations, as she doesn’t want to admit she has any. We are still learning about this little girl, who is about 15 lbs.
