Default Blind Chihuahua rescued, nursed to health

Blind Chihuahua Rescued, Nursed to Health

A young Chihuahua, who got a very rough start in life, has been given a second shot with Albuquerque's Animal Welfare Department.

Jessie was brought into the eastside shelter in late September after he was discovered along Rio Bravo in the South Valley. The Chihuahua's right eye socket was empty, his left eye injured. Animal Welfare staff believe he might have been attacked by another dog.

"He spent a few days in the shelter before I came around and found him," Felicia Leija, an Animal Welfare veterinary assistant and Jessie's foster mom, said. "I fell in love with him."

Jessie had to have his remaining eye removed earlier this month. Leija and her other pets have been helping Jessie adapt to life without vision.

"Just because they don't have eyes, doesn't mean they're disabled," Leija said.

Leija said other than occasionally bumping into a wall, Jessie gets around fine by himself. Now he needs a new family to take him home.

"It's going to be hard, but I know when he gets a home it's going to be the right one," Leija said.

The poor thing. That Leija said a very true thing: even if they're blind it doesn't mean they are disabled. In the video it doesn't seem his blindness is affecting his stride or everything else too much.

You know, putting the same idea on human beings probably is a bit different, but apart from very few and rare moments I can't consider blind people as disabled.
I guide blind runners on the track and even if they don't see and got some balancing problem while running, they are so special. They are teaching me so many things I would never get or catch about the world without them. Just saying.

I hope he will soon find the forever home he deserves.

Agreed as the mom of a special needs kitty I would take him in a heart beat. Reminds me of the chi version of Homer (Book-Homer's Odyssey The Blind WonderCat)
