A sweet dog, born with no eyes, continues to wait for someone to love him at an East Hampton, New York, animal shelter. Papito, a Chihuahua mix, was born in Puerto Rico, and though he is described as a love, nobody has stepped up to offer him a forever home.
In July 2018 (yes a full year ago!) the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons wrote:
Born blind, Papito was found scared and frightened. We took him in with the hope of finding him a home with people to love him. Sadly, he is still with us. And though he has become a staff favorite, a shelter is no place for any dog, but especially so for a blind dog. Blind dogs may not be able to see with their eyes, but they can see with their hearts.
A portion of Papito’s Petfinder biography reads:
Three year old Papito is a Chihuahua mix who sadly is blind due a congenital abnormality. He is nothing but love. He loves his toys and his people and other dogs. We are seeking a quiet, loving, adult-only home for this very special and very sweet young man. You must go slow with Papito as he startles easily. He is very loving and would love a family to love him right back.
Will you please take a moment to help this loving boy find a family who can see past his disability? Papito needs a forever home – soon!
Update Sept. 23, 2019: There is news about this special dog – click here to learn more!
Almost a year ago, ARF was fortunate enough to be able to rescue many dogs from shelters in Puerto Rico overwhelmed because of Hurricane Maria. We are happy to report that almost all of the dogs found forever homes. Papito has not been so lucky. Born blind, Papito was found scared and frightened. We took him in with the hope of finding him a home with people to love him. Sadly, he is still with us. And though he has become a staff favorite, a shelter is no place for any dog, but especially so for a blind dog. Blind dogs may not be able to see with their eyes, but they can see with their hearts.If you feel you have room in your heart for this very sweet, and very special dog, please contact our Adoption team, and share to help find this loving boy his forever home.
