Thunder is a mellow, snuggly sweet, five-year-old, 60-pound Lab mix looking for a loving forever home. Thunder’s vision is very minimal…the eye specialist believes that he had distemper as a puppy that caused scarring to his corneas. He has about 15% vision in one eye and about 6% vision in the other. Though he is visually impaired, he does amazingly well at learning the routine and layout of a new location and gets around as well as any other dog. He does bump into things on occasion, so he would need a home where the other pets are a little forgiving of his occasional missteps.
He is very loving and affectionate without being pushy and would make a great companion for any person or canine . He knows the command sit and does so automatically when he smells a treat or hears the crinkle of a treat bag. He is very food-motivated and takes treats gently. He also enjoys the company of other dogs although he might bump into them because of his vision issues. He is good on a leash and rides well in the car. He is crate-trained and housebroken. Lucky Dog Rescue has spent thousands of dollars on his veterinary care and any donations are greatly welcomed to help with his ongoing medical expenses.
