Male Cocker Spaniel Approx 10 years old Good with dogs (cats unknown) Older kids ok The dog pound is a scary place for any dog. But when you’re a blind dog, it’s beyond confusing and scary. Daddy was found roaming as a stray in Hartford. He was brought to the pound and found himself on his last day and nobody had come for him. Being a blind, senior dog in a pound full of younger and healthier animals can be a death sentence. But fortunately we were able to spare Daddy from this fate because a wonderful woman who has experience with cocker spaniels with vision impairments offered to foster him for us. After a consult with a veterinary ophthalmologist it was determined that Daddy’s eyes were extremely painful due to advanced glaucoma and on November 21st he had surgery to remove them. As awful as that type of surgery might sound – Daddy is a happier dog for it. He is still recovering in foster but will eventually be available for adoption. There’s a special someone out there who needs Daddy – and vice versa. He is great with other dogs, is completely housebroken and will amaze you with his ability to acclimate to new surroundings. Daddy is currently on a prescription diet to try to get some weight off those short legs! He loves to sit on his foster mom’s feet and take warm naps by the fire! To learn more about Daddy please email firstname.lastname@example.org. One of our Board Members is very experienced with living with blind dogs and can speak to you more about it.
