An elderly, blind dog is being held at the Los Angeles County Animal Control – Baldwin Park facility in California – where is her owner? The 13-year-old dog, named Azul, was adopted in February 2018 – the shelter has reached out to her owner, but Azul is still at the facility, waiting.
What is known?
On February 11, a social media post was made on Azul’s behalf:
It is terribly heartbreaking just how many BLIND seniors find themselves at the shelter, and Azul is the latest😭 I am trying to stay optimistic for a positive outcome, because Azul had been adopted not too long ago, in Feb. 2018, from the Baldwin Park shelter, and whoever adopted her knew she was a special needs dog. The shelter is currently performing a trace on her microchip to locate her adopter, which is why she is not available to the public until Feb. 21st.
We know a dog like Azul won’t have adopters lining up to put their name on the waitlist, so we’re hoping the #RescueVillage can start networking Azul to their favorite rescues. Azul is geriatric with worn teeth, and has obvious vision impairment… she has abnormal eyes (microphthalmic) with discharge😢. Despite her circumstances, this sweetie is friendly and gentle.
Azul was taken in on February 10 – it is now February 18 and Azul has not been reclaimed.
You can lend this blind senior dog a hand by sharing her adoption information.
