Information

Our cute little blond has the birth date of July 30, 2005. At the shelter she was listed as a stray so that is an estimate. She came to us in August 2015 in sad shape. She not only had medical issues, but she was terrified of people. And boy, has she come a long, long way!
First, Lucinda was heartworm positive, second, she had mammary tumors, third, she had not been spayed, and finally, she had eye issues.
She did fantastic with her heartworm treatments!! She had her tumors removed and was finally spayed!!
Since she is listed as a blind dog, lastly, she went to see her ophthalmologist. Her right eye, as he put it, had a cataract that exploded. It looks like a golden firework. But
Lucinda suffers no pain whatsoever, although she is totally blind. Her left eye is weak. She can see light and dark. We make sure when she's given anything (treats) it's on the left side.
She's great with other dogs and pays no attention to cats. She's good around children. And in general she's a laid back sweetie! She does well on walks and thoroughly loves to ride in the car. She is also good with people now. I believe she was in pain and had been mistreated as a breeder. She enjoys sitting and getting tummy and ear rubs. And she's happy to sleep on her bed or yours!

I don't think Lucinda would be as happy in a first time doggie home. I think someone with some experience would be best.

We hope you will consider making Lucinda part of your family! It will be, I promise, a win, win for all!!
And one more thing I totally forgot about until now, I just got a kiss! About an eighth of the right side of Lucinda's tongue has been bitten off! It doesn't bother or affect her in the least!

About Blind Dog Rescue Alliance - WI

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small group of volunteers spread throughout the United States (and even a couple in Canada) who are dedicated to advocating for blind and visually impaired dogs by rescuing dogs in shelters, helping blind dog owners, and educating the public. We formed in 2009, though our members have many years of experience in rescue, and in blind dogs.

Our Adoption Process...

Interested in adopting a BDRA Dog? Simply fill out our application. All of our dogs are spayed or neutered,
up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative and on heartworm and flea/tick preventive.

We ask a $300 adoption fee. This does not begin to cover the vetwork we do on our dogs, which is why
we are always fundraising!

Keep in mind that Blind Dog Rescue Alliance will transport dogs to their potential adopters. So do not let distance discourage you.

The Board of Directors has voted to prohibit the use of Invisible/Electronic fences on Blind Dog Rescue Alliance dogs. This policy will be effective immediately.
