Meet Nya! (pronounced knee-ah).
Nya is just the most sweet, gentle girl. She is an affectionate, loving dog that will make a great addition to her new family.

Nya is easy going and adapts well. She loves walks, both short and longer. She rides well in the car, settling quietly in the back seat. She has a great nose and loves to sniff when on walks, and will scent the air for any treats at home. She would love one of those hide the treat games for dogs!

Nya met the little dog in her foster home without any issues. Nya did try to play but her foster dog sister is older and much smaller, so hasnt been much of a playmate for Nya. So Nya started playing with her little stuffed squeaky toys on her own. She will toss them in the air and try to catch them. She is always wagging her tail, and wags while playing with her squeak toy...its so cute!

Nya has been blind for some time, and her eyes were painful. They were recently removed, but the loss of them will only benefit how she feels. She is very well adapted and as most blind dogs do, has completely learned her foster home...can navigate the house, yard and stairs without issue.

Prior to coming to rescue, Nya was happy and safe in a loving home with an extended family. However, in her blindness, Nya sometimes bumps into your leg when walking with you to make sure that you are there. This became hazardous for the grandmother in her family, so they made the very difficult decision to rehome Nya. The good news is that Nya has a stable loving background and this shows in her sweet personality.
Please consider adding Nya to your family. She is a special girl.

About Blind Dog Rescue Alliance - TN

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a group of volunteers spread throughout the United States (and even a couple in Canada) who are dedicated to advocating for blind and visually impaired dogs by rescuing dogs in shelters, helping blind dog owners, and educating the public. We formed in 2009, though our members have many years of experience in rescue, and in blind dogs.

We are always looking for volunteers; let us know if you want to help out! Volunteer@BlindDogRescue.com


We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit group, and all donations are tax deductible.

Our Adoption Process...

Interested in adopting a BDRA Dog? Simply fill out our application.

All of our dogs are spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative and on heartworm and flea/tick preventive.

We ask a $300 adoption fee. This does not begin to cover the vetwork we do on our dogs, which is why
we are always fundraising!

The Board of Directors has voted to prohibit the use of Invisible/Electronic fences on Blind Dog Rescue Alliance dogs. This policy will be effective immediately.
