Default New Foster Puppy

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.

Another sweet pumpkin pie! Lucky little man to have you foster him!
I definitely see Dachshund in him, maybe with a Border Terrier mixed in?


Kudos for fostering Annie! You lovely, big hearted love muffin you!

He has such an angel-face. So sorry for what happened to him and at such a young age. I sure hope he goes to a fabulous forever home! You go Annie!!

He looks like a sweetie. I'm sure someone will quickly fall in love.

His previous owner disgusts me. How could someone let that happen to a poor innocent dog? Horrible.
