    Blind dogs are NOT a problem. We have a blind dog and he does just fine with my Mom’s dogs, snuggles on any available lap, tries to steal treats, begs…….

    We have had other blind animals and they have all been “normal” (other than lack of vision)….. no major issues…….

    If this precious little treasure were in CA, I would offer to foster him. If anyone is coming from FL to Northern California, I would be happy to help…….

    That poor furbaby…… Absolutely disgusting……. How can someone do this and still like what they see in the mirror looking back at them???

    It’s absolutely heartbreaking how awful and callous some individuals can be to defenseless animals…… who were supposed to be treated as treasured family members……

    I can’t understand how anyone would abandon a treasured senior family member……. How can anyone be so cruel to a loving family member when they are most in need of love and support??? Precious Treasure Tom, your life matters, I am very sorry that you were failed so horribly by your humans……..

    I would give anything to have had more time with our treasured MacKitty…… Our precious furbabies are family members and are with us forever (from adoption day to their last breaths of life)…….. Whilst I hate seeing senior treasures in a shelter (@ least they are in a place that is protected from predators, fed, watered, and hopefully rehomed), they have a chance for a new furever home, where they will be treasured family members…….
It is tragic to think of them dying in the shelter alone, afraid and worst of all unloved……

    As for his cruel former so called family, they have reserved spots in Hell waiting for them where they will burn forever for their cruelty……..
