At Miami-Dade Animal Services a blind Welsh Corgi named Jimmy is so afraid of the kennel environment, he refuses to move. A staff member posted the following heartbreaking message on his kennel window:
“Please carry me and keep my food/water close.”
Jimmy hasn’t had a perfect life, but he loved his owners even though they failed him in so many ways. He was brought in as a stray, and his family has not come to the shelter to reclaim him and take him home. He is eight-years-old heartworm positive. Volunteers say he is very sweet and easy to love.
“I’m blind you see and this scary place is not my home. I’m afraid to move because I don’t know how to stay safe here. At home I knew where things were. My food and water were in the kitchen where all the good smells were and my nose led me there. I didn’t need my eyes. I don’t have a map of this place and I am afraid to move. I don’t know what has happened to me or how I got there,” a volunteer posted on social media hoping to help Jimmy find a new home.
Sadly, the shelter does not keep old blind dogs for long and he has been given the date of January 22 in order to find a new home or rescue organization. Share Jimmy’s plight with friends, family and social media contacts. Surely this boy deserves better.
