Felix was abandoned when he was a little puppy. A kid spotted him and took him home. Sadly, the family didn’t treat Felix right. The kid crushed Felix’s leg on purpose and the parents didn't even take him to the vet to seek medical attention. Luckily, a kind-hearted neighbor learned about Felix's situation. He quickly informed us and begged us to take him away from the abusive family. Luckily, the family agreed to give up Felix. We found his front leg was broken and for unknown reasons, he lost the vision on the right eye and is only able to see very dim light on his left eye and half of his whiskers were burnt.
After receiving a three-month phase of medical treatment, Felix is now able to walk properly. Unfortunately, he was not able to regain his vision. Although lacking vision, Felix is able to train his hearing and sense of smell so well that he acts just like a normal puppy. Given him an adequate amount of time, he will adapt and become independent on his daily routine activities in the new environment.
Since Felix's perception depends greatly on hearing, it's strongly recommended to make a sound before approaching him. But he does get startled by loud noises, a more quieter household might be a better fit for him. He likes to be comforted before getting picked up. He is very friendly to people and loves to hangout with his foster family.
Felix has suffered so much as a puppy. Yet he hasn’t lost his faith in human. He is cheerful and fun to be with. We really hope that we could find Felix home to call his own because he deserves to love and be loved just like any other puppies.
