Matthew is about eight years old, and appears to be a Shih Tzu/Poodle mix. Unfortunately, Matthew is blind and needs someone with a big heart to adopt this wonderful, special needs sweetheart.
He was rescued from a high kill pound. Please see the second photo of what he looked like upon intake.
It is going to take a very compassionate and special person to give him the love and home that he yearns for.
He loves attention and wants to be right next to you all the time. He loves giving endless kisses. Matthew just loves being alive.
Matthew is paper or pee pad trained.
He should be available for adoption around December 21st.
The potential adopter must provide references, including from your Veterinarian, of previous special needs dogs experience.
