My story

Electron is being fostered in Chicago.

Meet Electron, AKA Miss Ellie! Ellie is a sassy princess who would love to be the center of your world!

Ellie had congenital cataracts and because of her former visual impairments was a very nervous and skittish girl. She recently underwent cataract surgery and can now see again. She has begun to come out of her shell and is so excited to explore the world! Because of her surgery she will require topical eye drops and routine monitoring with an ophthalmologist for the rest of her life.

She is such a sweetheart and loves to be with her people. She is a typical Chihuahua, and can sometimes react when startled, and would do best in a home without young children. She loves to snuggle, loves to play fetch, and LOVES meals and snacks! She is starting to learn how to navigate and is enjoying taking walks.

We are working on potty training and she is getting better every day. She is starting to go outside on command, and mostly uses pee pads when indoors.

Ellie is such an amazing girl looking to be spoiled and pampered all day!

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Interested in adopting a BDRA dog? Simply fill out our application. All of our adult dogs are spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, and on heartworm and flea/tick preventive. All puppies are up to date on vaccinations, microchipped and on heartworm and flea/tick preventive. We ask a $350 adoption fee. This does not begin to cover the vet work we do on our dogs, which is why we are always fundraising! For unaltered dogs (such as puppies too young to be spayed/neutered prior to adoption), we now require an additional $100 spay/neuter deposit that is refundable upon BDRA receiving proof of spay/neuter and rabies vaccination.

Go meet their pets

Can I meet the dog before I submit an application? All of our dogs are cared for in private foster homes. We cannot make arrangements for private meet and greets until an application is received and references have been checked. That being said, many of our dogs are at local public events where you can certainly go to meet them. Will you transport the dog to me? What if I live in Canada? Generally yes, as long as you do not live more than 18 hours from a dog’s foster home. If you are unsure, please email adoption@blinddogrescue.org.

More about this rescue

We are a small 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.
