A “sweet gentleman” of a dog is in need of a new home. The dog, a senior beagle who is blind, is being held at the Isle of Wight County Animal Services shelter in Virginia.
Earlier this month, the shelter staff provided information about the dog, whose name is Ralphie:
That is no flash glare in Ralphie’s eyes, this senior boy is sadly blind in his Right eye (cloudy blue) and has severe cataracts in the other. Ralphie came to us a little banged up with some scratches and a body score of 3/9. He is improving with us and his physical wounds are healing nicely. Ralphie is very forgiving and has been just a sweet gentleman to everyone he meets.
According to the shelter, this sweet boy would do best in a home with a patient owner who understands that Ralphie gets around a bit slower than most dogs because of his sight impairment. Ralphie is believed to be approximately seven years of age and he weighs between 25-30 pounds.
If you have any more questions about Ralphie, or would like to schedule a meet and greet please call the animal services shelter at 757-365-6318
