Looking to adopt a senior pup?
We would love to suggest sweet Lulu! Lulu is a small breed miniature poodle appricot color who seems to be a pure breed. She ended up at a local san diego shelter with horrible matts 50% under weight and flea infested. Her skin is healing up from the damage the fleas did but she will have amazing coat soon enough. She does have BILATER CATARACTS. When ARWOB exited this red listed/euthanasia listed senior girl, we decided to take her to the specialist. An opthalmologist did find she has bilater cataracts and 'legally' blind. Aside from that, she has no other eye issues which is GREAT! Now, as a rescue group, we are unable to spend 4K for her cataracts to be removed (she would need testing to make sure her retinas are still intact and that cost is about $600. If they are good, then the bilateral surgery would be $3500).We know eye sight is just part of aging and she is doing it gracefully even with all that has happened to her in her past, as well as ending up abandoned and unspayed! at the shelter. We just know she had a rough life, but she is full of spunk and life and,to the surprise of her foster parent, THE FIRST day she arrived at her home in the yard during daylight, this little girl (tallish legs though) was up and down the stairs WITHOUT problems at all!
It was a HUGE SURPRISE to see her owning that yard without ever being there and just being classified as "legally" blind! She absolutely sees shadows, has great hearing and stamina, and she loves to join in the family and be part of whatever is going on. She loves to sleep, of course, and she would love to be someone's lap dog to enjoy the rest of her days in the safety and warmth of a loving home who will see all the years she still has left over to be a fantastic companion.
