Sad little blind senior spaniel at shelter broke everyone’s heart

On Friday, Barney was rescued by Camp Cocker Rescue from the South Los Angeles City Shelter. The sad blind cocker spaniel broke everyone’s heart.

Check out his video:

OHMYDAWG!Here's one of our new shelter doggies that we had our name on.We have no wordsNO WORDS!Truly, no words for what this poor boy looks like after the dreadlocked hair was shaved down by the shelter.He is blind in both eyes and you can see his left eye is bulging out, our guess is the vet is going to diagnose it as glaucoma and that eye will need to be enucleated.His skin, this is heartbreaking, HEARTBREAKING!He will of course need a skin scraping and a skin culture sent out to the lab to determine what the bacteria is.His new name is now Barney and he has no idea but his life just took a turn for a fresh start. We know he is an older gentleman and we know it will be super duper hard to get a blind dog adopted out.But how could we say no?Needless to say, we are having a really expensive week right now (and we still have vet debt on the credit cards, from the last six weeks).sooooooo . . . it is time to beg for donations.We've set up a donate link for Barney right here:https://donorbox.org/donatetobarneysmedicalbillsBelieve it or not, those $5 donations can add up and even if you can't afford $5, maybe you can help spread Barney's store and ask your friends to pass it forward?These major medical dogs certainly do need a village and Barney needs the Camp Cocker village all the way.We can do this, right?#SaveADogChangeTheWorld#TeamBarney

Barney came in covered in dreadlocks of matted fur. The shelter staff were able to shave him down to make him more comfortable; sadly what they found underneath was heartbreaking.

“He is blind in both eyes and you can see his left eye is bulging out,” posted Camp Cocker Rescue on social media. “Our guess is the vet is going to diagnose it as glaucoma and that eye will need to be enucleated. His skin, this is heartbreaking. He will of course need a skin scraping and a skin culture sent out to the lab to determine what the bacteria is.”

Barney’s future is full of better news, but his recovery will be expensive.

We will be checking back and reporting his progress as the information becomes available.

We’ve set up a donate link for Barney right here:

Believe it or not, those $5 donations can add up and even if you can’t afford $5, maybe you can help spread Barney’s store and ask your friends to pass it forward?
These major medical dogs certainly do need a village and Barney needs the Camp Cocker village all the way.
We can do this, right?

    Thank goodness for Camp Cocker Rescue!!! Totally wonderful that your group rescued this precious little treasure!!!

    This is sad and disgusting beyond words can express….. The POSs who neglected this precious little treasure and abandoned him are pure evil!!!!!!!! Lock these POSs up and lose the keys!!!!! Should only leave prison in a pine box (& that is way too good for them)……. They will burn in the hottest part of Hell forever for their cruelty……. They can’t get to Hell fast enough………

    I hope this precious little treasure recovers ASAP and is rehomed into a loving furever family where he will be treated as a beloved family member……
