Hi, my name is Bingo and I am about a year old. I am a PomChi. I look like a winking at you but I have a story on why my eye or eyes are doing what they are doing or not doing. One day I was running around loose in the town where I lived and I got hit by a car. My eyes got hurt. The Elgin police picked me up and took me the vet for help instead of the shelter because I needed surgery right away. They tried to save my eye(s). I had surgery and we had to wait to see if my they got better. Meanwhile, my owners came looking for me but they couldn’t take care of my injuries so they relinquished me over to Rescue. There was a chance that I was going to need more care after my 1st surgery; possibly another surgery. Which is what happened and it was too much for them. So thankfully IAR stepped in to help me. That’s how I became a Rescue/Foster dog. I had my 2nd surgery but unfortunately my eyes didn’t get better. One eye was taken away and the other eye was left because it gives me the balance or rhythm a dog needs to get by – that’s what my vet says. My foster Mom can explain that better than me. I’ve learned how to get along without my eyesight and I am doing really well. I listen for my foster Mom’s voice and I feel for her legs and more importantly I use my nose for everything. The one thing I need help with is going up and down stairs. I’ve adjusted very well learning the routine of my foster home. So well, that I have learned when the kitty has entered the room and I chase him. So maybe I should have no cats in my next home. I may get a swat from him and I won’t see it coming. I am dog friendly though. There is another dog that lives in my foster home and we share. Although I like to play with my toys and she doesn’t play with toys so I just play by myself. But we both like to like to snuggle on our foster Mom’s lap. I like our quiet times on the couch but I also like my play times with my toys. I hope one day I have a family that can love me and give me a home again. I hope that home keeps me really secure and that I never become a stray again. I never want to be picked up by the police again. I like being taken care of by people and more importantly loved by so many people. Now that all my surgeries are done there is no more extra care that is needed. The only care I need is love, love and more love! Anyone can supply that with a big heart. So please call my foster Mom and come meet me! Xoxo, Bingo
