In shelter Dog

SPECIAL NEEDS - BLIND Buster is a sweet dog but he unfortunately lost his eyesight. He was surrendered to a local shelter after his mom died and dad was unable to care for him any long. Buster is in a foster home where he has learned the "lay of the land." He does pretty good transitioning from his crate to the outside but sometimes gets confused by doorways and has a potty accident. When out in the yard, Buster will go his own way and do his business or stop to sniff another dog. He is a happy little guy who does amazingly well considering his blindness. He has been evaluated by a pet ophthalmologist. He has cataracts in both eyes and he is an excellent candidate for cataract removal. However, he also has moderately advanced progressive retinal atrophy which will eventually lead to total blindness. Buster is about 9 years old and 15 lbs. He has been neutered, is current on his vaccinations and microchipped. Buster is generally not a nippy dog but may react if startled. Accordingly, we recommend a home with no children. Smell and hearing are the two senses used by dogs the most and Busters nose and ears work just fine!
