Beautiful blind bull terrier, about 10 years old, intact, up to date on all shots, and they believe he has not been blind for long. He is very sweet with people but has shown some aggression with other dogs, most likely because he is startled and so scared. He is heartworm positive and is looking for that special Angel rescue that can give him the understanding and attention he needs, and will keep him from being PTS. Please help! If you find you are not in a position to help at this time please share his information and pass it along to others. Cherie writes the following:
One week ago, a very sick individual dumped a poor, blind bull terrier in my neighbor's yard. It broke my heart. I brought the dog to my home on a whim in hopes of finding someone who would be able to give him a home. The next day, a coworker told me that he and his wife take in blind dogs. I was so excited when they agreed to give him a home. They had a very thorough veterinary exam and he received all vaccinations. He was horribly infested with fleas and ticks, and was given the pill that eradicates them within a few hours. He is now flea and tick free. He is approximately 10 years old, and has been diagnosed with heartworms.
My coworker and his wife took him home and have tried very hard to assimilate him with their other 3 dogs. It is not working. He has not been neutered, and has shown some aggression to the other dogs, although he is very sweet with people. They have already spent $100s on this dog, and want so badly to make this work, but it is not working. Because of their experience with blind dogs, they believe that he has not been blind for long. Of course neutering might help with agression, but he can't be neutered because of his heartworms.
The bottom line is this: he will be euthanized, and soon if another suitable shelter is not found for him. I am reaching out to every rescue organization I can find, in the hopes that someone would be willing to offer him
shelter, and the opportunity at some kind of life. Other than his heartworm, he has no disease. His liver and kidneys are fine. He would be ideally suited for a home with no other pets, perhaps with a retired person who
could spend lots of time showing him affection. He is very loving and a lap dog.
I am open to any ideas or suggestions you have, but time is of the essence. I have been begging one day at a time from my coworker and his wife. The dog is currently residing at a local vet, as they can't take the dog back home with them. It is not good for him or their other dogs.
Please if any of you can help, or can point me in the direction of someone who can help, let me know asap. If he goes to a traditional shelter, he will be euthanized immediately. Thank you very much for anything you can do.
