found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and good with dogs.
Foster Mom read that blind dogs, when left alone, are soothed by the radio and she has been leaving it on during the time she is away, and Scruff does appear to be calmer when she returns home. He is learning that it’s appropriate to go outside to potty and not to do it inside. He has actually lifted his leg to pee-pee several times which is a big accomplishment for him. He has also become much calmer and enjoys sitting on FM’s lap. Scruff is not a barker, as are most dogs who are hearing/vision impaired – he will only bark if someone knocks on the door – he wants to protect his person! Scruff’s ideal home would be one in which there is one stay-at-home parent, and a fenced-in yard would be a bonus! He will make a sweet, loving companion to the right family. PLEASE NOTE: Because Scruff is both vision/hearing impaired, he can only be adopted into an adult home.
INITIAL BIO 05-24-09: MEET SCRUFF! He's an adorable 4-1/2 y/o 8# yorkie who was surrendered by his owners because they were unable to spend enough time with him, and wanted him to have a better life in a home where he would receive lots of attention. Scruff was a 'throw-away' puppy who was brought to a vet's office when he was only weeks old, where the pet store owner asked to have him euthanized since he appeared to be 'blind'. His previous owner worked at the vet's office at that time, and she decided that Scruff deserved to live, so she brought him home. He does appear to have some vision problems, but can see well enough to get around; UYR will have his eyes checked to determine the extent of his vision problems. He is a very sweet and loving little boy who has had some challenges in his life to overcome. Scruff would do best in a home where there was at least one stay-at-home parent and perhaps one other doggie companion for a buddy. A fenced-in yard would be a bonus. PLEASE NOTE: Until we know the extent of Scruff's vision problems, he can only be adopted into an adult home.
