* Blind Dog Who Cried Alone In His Kennel Gets The New Start He Always Dreamed Of

by Polly Mackintosh


When Jinx the 5-year-old Pit Bull mix dog arrived at the Animal Care Center of New York City (ACC), he was very scared and fearful.

Aside from the usual shock brought on by a new environment, Jinx was facing another difficulty: ever since he was born, he has been blind. This makes everything so much harder for the gorgeous dog.

So it was never going to be easy for him when his family dropped him off at the center, saying simply “He”s an amazing dog”. According to them, it was just that Jinx didn’t get along well with their other dogs. [Read the full article….]

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.

Cheerio and Fubu, bonded pair dumped at PACC shelter, need out now. [Team Up For Tucson]


Dumped at the Pima County Animal Care Center (“PACC”) in Tucson, innocent victims of their humans’ divorce, two bonded older dogs, are struggling at the shelter. Cheerio, is blind, and he and Fubu, his sighted best friend, rely completely on each other for support. But sadly, because of the stress of being in the county shelter, the dogs have been separated for safety concerns, as indicated by a note on one of their kennels. These two pups have been in the shelter since April 10, 2016 and it is wearing on them.


Team Up For Tucson


Volunteers at the shelter and local animal welfare community are very concerned that while Cheerio is literally blind to what’s going on around him, Fubu is very anxious for both of them, and has been but on anti-stress meds to try and alleviate the poor dog’s distress. Both dogs are technically seniors – Cheerio is 8, and Fubu is 7 – and the odds of them being adopted at all, much less together, are somewhat daunting, but championing their cause is animal welfare group, Team Up for Tucson (“TUFT”), who are working hard to get the dogs adopted together – putting together videos and pleas for these pups.

They have also been taking both Fubu and Cheerio, out of the shelter and working on their training at canine recreation center and gym, A Loyal Companion (“ALC”), to help prepare them together for, hopefully, a future new and loving home.

In addition, they are both sponsored for one month of training at ALC, and have $250 veterinary credit each, for their future family’s use. The dogs are playful, friendly, sweet, and share everything – toys, food, treats, and kisses – and being blind does not hold Cheerio back from being an amazing, loving dog.


“Fubu is such a loving guide dog to Cheerio, it’s pretty incredible what they have worked out together…These two guys are so special, please consider giving them a forever home and enjoy what you have done for them.” ~Steve Oliver, volunteer


These boys need a loving home sooner rather than later – let’s make sure they are never, ever separated from each other again and will live out the rest of their days happily together. If you are able to adopt, foster, or are a rescue willing to take them in, please immediately contact: Team Up for Tucson at 520-303-2167 or info@teamupfortucson.com.


“I feel so bad that NONE of these photos capture how amazing these two dogs are around people. To say they are truly sweet, special, unique and amazing would be the understatement of the year!” ~TUFT volunteer, Michele Ochoaski

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.

Please share to save his life   |    Rescue Me Tampa Shelter Dogs

His eyes look as if they could speak volumes, but ironically Ollie is blind and can see nothing. The shelter sent out a plea to rescues to pull Ollie. Blind dogs don’t do well in shelters. This shelter is noisy and very chaotic.


Those who visited him wrote on his page, “Spent time with Ollie today. What a LOVER!!! Took treats from us and had wiggle butt the minute he knew we were there!”


His video shows that he knows basic commands and is gentle. Even though he is blind, he pays attention and is alert to the person’s voice. He loves to be petted and enjoys treats (which he can sniff out!).

In spite of the strange surroundings, he has been sweet and friendly. He is listed as a one-and-a-half-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier mix. He is handsome and energetic according to staff.

The medical reports show that Ollie has a corneal injury, bilateral corneal edema and is blind. The volunteers wrote: “Our hearts go out to him as the shelter can be a scary environment especially for those who have no vision. This boy needs to find a home where he can feel safe and loved. Please help be his voice!”

Please share Ollie’s story with family and friends and social media contacts. He needs to be out of the shelter as soon as possible. There may be more information on his Facebook thread. He is ID#A30607405. Ollie is located at Hillsborough County Animal Services, 440 N. Falkenburg Road, Tampa, FL 33619. Their phone number is 813-744-5660. They are open every day from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm.

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.

Loss of vision doesn’t make a dog any less loving or loyal or kind. It does, however, make a dog considerably worse at looking in the right direction, as a black lab named Uncle Ebenezer recently proved.

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.
