Jaxx…he is an older boy, a black dog likely to suffer from the dreaded “black dog syndrome,” and he has cataracts. Is there anyone who will see this senior dog’s worth and find it in their heart to offer him a loving home?

The Facebook page, Focus on Furever, uploaded several beautiful photos of Jaxx on Friday, along with a few words about this homeless dog. Jaxx’s description reads, “I have cataracts and some eye boogies that make it difficult to see but I can still get around pretty good for an old guy. I’m very sweet and well behaved, I like to chill and get loved on! I will make any family happy and can’t wait to go home with someone.”

The review date for Jaxx has already come and gone. Though the review date does not mean “euthanasia date,” it does mean that Jaxx is in jeopardy if he is not rescued soon. The Corpus Christi Animal Services facility does put dogs down for space constraints.

Please help Jaxx find a loving family by taking a moment to share his adoption information.

* Mayhew animal home appeal to find new homes for two blind dogs – Get West London

Source: Get West London – Mayhew animal home appeal to find new homes for two blind dogs


The Mayhew animal home in Harrow is appealing to the public to find homes for two blind dogs in its care.

Nine-year-old Shih Tzu Tallula and eight year old Cockerpoo Bella are blind in both eyes but still live their lives to the full like every other dog.



Nine year old Shih Tzu Tallula

Tallula is looking for her third home after she had to have her eyes removed after developing infections which then turned into ulcers.

The Mayhew’s Dog Adoption Officer, Lisa Guiney, said: “With her playful and confident nature, being blind clearly doesn’t bother Tallula at all.

“She has so much character; she loves playing with her toys, snores like a trooper and will even chat back to you if you talk to her.”


Eight year old Cockerpoo Bella

Bella was born in Long Beach, California but became blind earlier on this year and was given two different [diagnoses], one said she was suffering from glaucoma and the other thought she had cataracts.

In February earlier this year, Bella’s owner made the decision to move away from America to London and despite her efforts, Bella’s owner was unable to find accommodation which would allow for dogs and had to put her up for adoption with The Mayhew.

When she arrived at The Mayhew their vets gave Bella a full check-up and were able to give a more definite diagnosis on her condition and discovered that she had a progressive degeneration of the retinas, which doesn’t need any medical treatment or cause her any discomfort.

Ms Guiney said: “Bella is a very sweet, calm and gentle dog who is well behaved and sociable with people, other dogs and cats. She is such an affectionate girl and especially loves it when you rub her belly.


If you are interested in adopting either Tallula or Bella then please visit The Mayhew website or call 020 8962 8000.

Archibald enjoying some attention at Many Tears Rescue

A CARMARTHENSHIRE rescue centre says a blind dog in its care needs a guide dog to help him through life.

Archibald is a beautiful but totally blind labradoodle pup in the care of Many Tears Animal Rescue in Maesybont.

He was given that name because it means daring and precious, said a spokeswoman for Many Tears.

“Archibald is looking for a canine companion to be his eyes,” she said.

“Many Tears Rescue takes in many blind dogs from breeding kennels and manages with the help of specialist vets give hundreds of dogs the gift of site at the cost of £2000 per dog.

“This past year over 30 dogs that lived in a dark world can now see.”

Sadly it appears this special boy Archibald is not a candidate for this surgery, but never the less Many Tears Rescue are taking him to the specialist hoping for a miracle.

“we are hoping to find the perfect home with a seeing dog and huge amounts of comfort and love to offer this brave kind pup.”

If you can offer Archibald a fitting home, fill in the form at www.manytearsrescue.org.

Blind, Abandoned Pit Bull Finds Home to Live Out Last Days  (Foreverhome Rescue)

Blind, Abandoned Pit Bull Finds Home to Live Out Last Days (Foreverhome Rescue)

The heartbreaking story of a blind pit bull abandoned on a park bench shortly after giving birth outraged animal lovers everywhere. But Poly’s story will have a happy ending — sort of.

ABC News reported in October that Poly was found in a park in Santa Maria, California, by a Santa Barbara rescue organization. In addition to being blind, Poly had a few other medical issues: a congenital heart condition, possible ringworm and a skin condition that causes scabbing.

Though Poly has found a loving home, it may be short-lived. She has been given somewhere between two months and two years to live, according to Jennifer Wales, the president and founder of Foreverhome Pet Rescue, the organization that placed her in foster care soon after her rescue. That foster home is now considered a hospice situation for Poly but, according to Wales, Poly’s days are filled with everything a dog could want in a home.

“Her activities are limited, but there’s lots of loving and hugging and petting,” said Wales, and because of Poly’s heart condition, “mostly napping.”

A typical day in the life of Poly might include lounging on the twin daybed that’s reserved for her and two other foster dogs in the San Fernando home where they live; rolling in the grass in the yard or at the park down the street, coconut oil massages that she “loves,” and car rides to Starbucks.

“She is getting much more comfortable in the car,” Wales said, “and since she is nervous around new voices, we are trying to at least briefly expose her to more and more people so she can learn to trust again. She is playful and bouncy, not so much with toys as with people. But she can’t get too riled up for more than a couple of minutes or she will start coughing and faint due to her condition.” [Read the full article….]

* Good home needed for Henry – adorable puppy who doesn’t know he can’t see or hear – Yorkshire Post

But the boisterous pup is now looking for a new home for Christmas after he was taken into care because his owner was no longer able to care for him.

Kathy Trout from West Yorkshire Dog Rescue, said: “He’s an extremely social puppy. He’s a charming little dog who is very funny and playful and he is amazingly cute.

“He’s quite able to understand and learn about an environment as long as things don’t move. He needs a stable, non-cluttered environment, so not somewhere where someone might put a bag down for him to walk into.

“Because of his breed he needs a lot of exercise and he will also need to live with another dog to follow around and to help guide him, because he is essentially living in a black world.

* Blind Joe is a little angel in his halo

Blair Shiff, KUSA 7:13 a.m. MST December 2, 2015

Blind Joe is a 10-year-old totally blind Parson Russell Terrier.

DENVER – Blind Joe is a 10-year-old totally blind Parson Russell Terrier.

He came into the Adams County Animal Shelter as a stray after he was found wandering in traffic.

The shelter was able to buy him a blind dog “halo” which he is adapting to very well. The halo keeps him from bumping his head.

He is currently in foster care and is house trained. He’s great with other dogs and would benefit from a buddy with vision – just like his very own seeing-eye dog.

The shelter says if he is adopted into a home with stairs, they would need to have baby gates up for his safety.

Blind Joe likes squeaky toys, enjoys scratches and round beds. Shelter workers say he’s pretty quiet.

16 November 2015


Ray was only supposed to be with Brittany Robinson for a few weeks — but his short stay turned into a much longer one after tragedy struck.

Robinson is a professional dog trainer who runs K9 Guidance to Inclusion, a training and boarding facility, out of her home in Tuscon, Arizona. The laid-back, blind cattle dog, Ray, originally showed up as a client in July.

“Within only a few weeks we got a phone call from his owner,” Robinson told The Dodo. She had been diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumor.

Robinson assured Ray’s owner she would care for him for as long as was needed while she underwent treatment. “‘Don’t worry about it,’ we said, ‘he stays here with us.'”

Sadly, Ray’s owner passed away in November — Ray could never go home to her. Now he’s living comfortably with Robinson as she keeps her promise to care for him until he can find a new home.

Ray’s been blind since he was 2 years old — his eyes had to be removed due to glaucoma — but that doesn’t keep him from being a loyal, loving dog.

“You would never know he was blind, he’s very sensitive and has an extraordinary sense of smell,” Robinson said. “He’s actually probably the easiest dog we have at our house … super sweet, very people-oriented.”

Now Robinson and her fiance, Christopher Brauer, are trying to find Ray a new family.

Ray would make a great pet for a family with no other dogs, since being around the commotion of other pets can be hard for him, but other than that he’s “just a laid back boy who wants to hang at your feet,” Robinson said.

Ray was already a rescue when he was adopted by his former owner, and now that he’s lost her, he needs a new home that will give him the same kind of love and care that she did.

To help his transition, Robinson is offering free training and boarding for life to whomever takes him home. Hopefully soon, Ray will have a new lap to cuddle in.

Anyone interested in giving Ray a home should contact Brittany Robinson through the K9 Guidance to Inclusion website.

Poly’s owner never came forward to claim her and Santa Barbara County Animal Services made a plea for help.

“It’s now coming to the point where we need to ask for help outside our area, to find her a rescue that’s willing to take her and give her the love and attention she deserves and most importantly, a place where she gets to live out her life. She deserves to experience love, predictability, and for someone just to love her, because she really is that special,” was written on their Facebook page.


….Shortly after posting about Poly, Animal Services received responses from hundreds of people asking about her wellbeing. People wrote in from nearly all 50 states, Canada, UK and even Egypt. [Read the full article….]

Raj, a 5-year-old pit bull, is famous


A blind New Mexico dog who was chained, even poisoned at one point is getting attention from people all over the world, but there’s still something missing.

“I don’t think he knows he’s famous yet,” said Animal Humane New Mexico Marketing Director Laura Kuechenmeister.

However, Raj, a 5-year-old pit bull, is famous.

Raj came to Animal Humane in July underweight and with only eye.

Workers said he was tied to a chain for at least three years living in a debris filled backyard near Las Vegas, New Mexico.

At one point, they said he and two of the dogs he was living there with were poisoned. Raj is the only one who survived.

Recently, Raj got an infection in his other eye. Animal Humane performed surgery to remove it.

Now, his story of a blind dog with a big heart has taken off. [Read the full article….]


If you’re interested in adopting Raj, please contact Animal Humane.
