Blind bewildered senior German shepherd tossed away like trash

At the Clayton County Animal Shelter, volunteers try to comfort a nine-year-old blind German shepherd. Sadly, he has been at the shelter since October 8, and his time might be running out. Rocky was rescued from a cruelty situation and is now ready to enjoy a peaceful and loving life. Can you help?

Rocky – ID #A010597
“Please don’t let me die here. My name is Rocky. I am a male black and tan German Shepherd Dog. The shelter staff think I am about 9 years old. I weigh about 47 lbs. I am located at the adoption center for Clayton County Animal Control in Georgia. I’ve been at the shelter since October 8th 2020.

    When we adopt an animal (dog, cat or horse), they are with us forever……. Pets are NOT disposable (like trash)……. way too many people view pets as temporary and the minute they run into any bad behaviors, high vet bills, “new baby”, “dog doesn’t color match with new furniture”…… they dump or surrender their pet……. I can’t understand this line of thought, but, sadly, it’s very common……. Do these people honestly think there is a long line of people wanting to adopt a badly behaved or sick pet???

    We have a blind dog who doesn’t know he’s blind. He acts like any other dog: loves treats, snuggles, Grammy & Grampy, car rides to anywhere but the vet, stealing people food whenever possible……. He absolutely hates the vet, bath time and shots…… He is no different than any other dog: he uses his nose to identify people and treats…… The only thing we need to be careful about is rearranging the furniture. Other than that, a blind dog is the same as any other dog!!!

    I hope Rocky is adopted into a loving furever family where he will be treated as a beloved family member!!!
