blind dogs are easy to manage in a normal home or foster...lots of room, stable inhabitants and furniture placement,,,one or two or three other animals...not so easy in a large and busy communal sanctuary with multiple animals coming and going...donated items, buckets of bleach, full trash bags and piles of laundry strewn around conveniently while we are trying to clean.
these dogs can't see...makes them feel vulnerable...they walk unnaturally, trying not to bump into someone or something...this makes the seeing dogs nervous because a hestitant, blind dog's body language is off and makes them difficult for the other dogs to read.
there is a blind, very sad golden cross out in hope...the golden retriever club sent me an email about her...she is not purebred so is outside their mandate. another rescue is going out on monday to pull some of the dogs..maybe when they see her, they will take her too...maybe not.
i said we would take her IF no one else in the world could...so here i go asking....can anyone out there in the rescue world help her...she does have some leash/collar issues and needs medical care?
we are so very full and we have another probable and blind one coming late this week...this girl will be really hard to try to squeeze in but it sounds like she is in a real bind if she can't find someone to help her....does anyone know anyone who might be able to help her?
