found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, a special needs pet, and up to date with shots.
PuttPutt is a sweet, little fellow looking for a forever home. He is very special and he is blind. First of all, let me tell you about the joys of adopting a ’special needs’ dog. YES – they are so very SPECIAL. They warm your heart, and seem even more appreciative for being rescued. After a short adjustment period, you forget they have special needs, as they become a functioning part of your family. Later you will wonder why you have not chosen the special ones all along!
One HUGE good point about PuttPutt is that he is not going to jump all over you or run off. He just enjoys a quiet spot and knowing you are nearby to scritch his ears and be there. He is also not going to claw your doors or chew up your furniture. He won’t even be getting on the furniture unless you put him there! OK- now on to the details…..
Putt Putt is an senior, blind, neutered Pomeranian – Corgie(?) mix. He was found walking beside a busy road in Charlotte until some one found him and carried him to the animal control shelter. With him being blind, it is a miracle that he was not hit by a car! He is low energy, and loves to be petted. He has had skin yeast issues and needs a medicated bath at least once a week. He is very good while he gets his bath and seems to enjoy it. He also needs to stay on a high quality yeast and grain free diet. He may have to have eye ointment but at this time his eyes are doing OK. Putt Putt needs a quiet retirement home where he can live out the rest of his life being loved and spoiled. He is carried in and out to go potty outside, and then just enjoys laying around in a soft warm bed. It would be best for him to live in an adult home with out young children. Putt Putt was given his name by the animal shelter. While he was waiting for rescue he just putt putted around the animal shelter office area and just followed the wall around the room. He is over weight(around 17 lbs) and could stand to lose a few pounds, but we have just been concentrating on getting his skin issues under control and getting him to a place where he is having some quality life. He does not look as heavy as he feels when you pick him up. He is larger for a Pom but has the short squatty legs and long body of a small Corgi. If you are interested in adopting PuttPutt please email us at PomRescueCom@aol.com for an adoption questionnaire. Putt Putt is vaccinated, dewormed, neutered, heart worm negative and started on heart worm prevention and flea prevention. Adoption donation, a home visit, two personal and one Vet references will be required.

I cannot see you Mommy, when you cuddle me so near.
And yet I know you love me, it's in the words I hear.
I cannot see you Daddy, when you hold me by your side
But still I know you love me when you tell me so with pride.
I cannot see to run and play out in the sun so bright
For here inside my tiny head it's always dark as night.
I cannot see the treats you give when I am extra good
But I can wag my tail in Thanks just like a good dog should.
"He cannot see. The dogs no good" is what some folks might say
"He can't be trained, he'll never learn he must be put away."
But not you, Mom and Daddy You know that it's alright
Because I love you just as much as any dog with sight.
You took me in, you gave me love and we will never part
Because I'm blind with just my eyes, I see you in my heart
