found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, and good with kids.
Pappy is completely blind and can not differentiate night from day. He is fearful of new environments and is terrified if crated and confined to a small area. In his foster home, Pappy has his own 10x20 room that is babygated from the rest of the house. He feels very secure here, but wishes he could be with his humans.
Introducing him to other dogs will take a very patient owner. Because he cannot see the other dog's body language, Pappy automatically assumes that he must defend himself and will snarl and lunge towards his perceived 'danger'. He is getting used to the smells and sounds of the house dogs and now greets them at the gate with a wagging tail. We are hoping that in time, he will feel safe and be friendly without the safety of the gate barrier.
If you are looking for a very grateful and snuggly canine, and are willing to patiently teach him to trust other dogs, then Pappy is your man.
