(when grown) -
Hi my name is Chico and I am an apx 2 year old Flat Coated Retriever/Border Collie mix. Sadly, I found myself at the Baldwin Park Shelter win my homeless owner gave me and my friend Oreo (who had been adopted, up. I am good with other dogs and an all around happy guy.  Little did my rescue know when they saved me and Oreo, is that I have congential corneal dermoids that require expensive surgery by an eye specialist. My rescue mom took me in to find out what is needed and she is/has been working on raising funds for my much needed $4500 eye surgery before these corneal dermoids do even more damage to my inner eyes. The eye specialist not only needs to remove the dermoids, he also needs to reconstruct the inner eye. I'm just so grateful that Delaney's Dog mission is to help dogs who need help most and that they didn't turn their back on me and let my young life end at that scary high kill shelter where I saw so many dogs Lea e their overcrowded and dirty kennels only to never return.  I was next to lose my life until my rescue hero mom came for me.   I am currently seeking a forever home or a foster to adopt home while rescue raises money to help my poor eyes.   If you can foster me, or donate to my surgery, we would be so grateful. I really want to be in a home again. Could you help me?  ##1484630##
