We took a break from fostering because of Nova. Well I met this guy at an event and he needed a foster for two weeks while his was out of town (he is pretty cute so I don't know if he will last long). I figured he would be a good way to get back into things cause he is really calm and has a really fun personality. His name is Luke. We think he is a doxie x terrier of some sort maybe? You can see the doxie in his body and his personality.
He is about 70% blind- his previous owners allowed hairs growing into his eyes to go untreated until they actually fused with his cornea. Then they dumped him at a kill shelter- great people those folks. The rescue pulled him and he had a laser surgery to clear the scar tissue and hair off his cornea and also had a procedure to kill the hair folicles that were growing into his eye. So his vision will not get any worse- but it also won't get any better. With the hair gone he is not even really "special needs" because it will not happen again and in the long term I don't think you really would notice he can't see. 30% vision seems to be just fine for a dog around the house. Anyway he is super cute- and a lot of fun. Only 10 months old so he still plays like a puppy. I'm happy to be fostering again- it is fun to have new dogs through from time to time.
