Joe went from one eye to no eyes to needing dental surgery, but none of this deterred Lauren Truscott. In fact, it motivated her to adopt another rescue.
When Joe came to B.C. from a high-kill shelter he already had three strikes against him: One of his eyes was removed because of Glaucoma, the other one was blind and he was a scruffy senior. In short, this is the kind of dog that gets left at the shelter.
But despite all of this, Lauren Truscott fell in love at first sight, no pun intended.
Nine-year-old Joe now has no eyes at all – his other eye was recently removed because of painful Glaucoma – but now he’s facing another hurdle: he needs dental surgery, and Lauren is fundraising to come up with the cash.
