Samson was found wandering as a stray in Watseka, IL.  He was taken by the local animal control where they kept him for the required 3 day stray hold.  He was then transferred to our rescue in hopes of finding him the special home he will need.  Samson is in perfect health except for one thing - he is blind.  He does not have cataracts.  The vet's opinion is that he was most likely just born blind.  He is described by all who have spent time with him as the sweetest dog you'll ever meet.  He gets along well with other dogs and great with children too!  Can you give Samson a special home?
