Posted Breed: Miniature Pinscher (short coat). Name: Levi Sex: Male Breed: Miniature Pinscher Age: 10yrs (approx. DOB: 12/09/03) Level of blindness: Vision is cloudy Cause of eye issues: Corneal Edema Health issues: None Weight: 22 pounds Good with dogs: Yes, possessive of humans but tolerates other dogs, responds to no Good with cats: Yes Good with kids: Older children only Currently being fostered in: VA *BDRA will transport the dog a reasonable distance, to an approved adopter, at no extra cost, even if out of state. Information: 12/22/13: Levi came to us from the shelter a very scared, timid little man. Over the past 10 days we have taken everything incredibly slowly to give him the best possible chance for success. Levi continues to amaze us every day with his progress. Although he doesn't know any commands (we are trying to teach this old dog some new tricks) he is a rock star on a leash. Levi LOVES to ride in the car and go anywhere his humans go. Levi is a complete cuddlebug in the house and will lay with you all the time. He is doing well crated during the day but would probably prefer a home with more people during the day. He is currently living with 5 other dogs and 3 cats. He doesn't pay much attention to the cats and is not a play machine with the dogs either. He is more concerned about the humans. Levi, per owner surrender form, was never housebroken. We are doing our best to address it. If you are interested in adopting Levi, please fill out our adoption application. The Board of Directors has voted to prohibit the use of Invisible/Electronic fences on Blind Dog Rescue Alliance dogs. This policy will be effective immediately.

More About Miniature Pinscher Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Age: Adult
      Location: Philadelphia, PA
      Posted Breed: Akita / Mixed (medium coat). Please contact os@blinddogrescue.com for more information about this pet. Name: Bubba Age: about 9 years Sex: Male (neutered) Breed: Akita Mix Location: Jacksonville, FL area Vet Info: Bubba is confirmed neutered and is up to date on vaccines. He is heartworm negative. Bibba has advanced cataracts in both eyes. He can see shadows but is almost fully blind. Bubba weighs 60 pounds. Owner Info: Bubba is an Akita mix who has been with his current owners for about 5 years but they now have an active one year old child and Bubba can get startled and protective easily in an unpredictable environment. They have tried many avenues to find Bubba a new home with no luck yet. They write, “Bubba is a good dog but his blindness prevents him from being fully aware and trusting his environment and other people/animals.” Bubba is an indoor dog confined to one area of the house. He is house-broken and leash-trained. Bubba is described as nervous and shy. Bubba's owner says Bubba occasionally shows aggression toward her husband if he startles him while sleeping or plays too rough. She says he is very protective around the baby. There was an incident a few months ago when Bubba snapped at his owner when he was trying to get Bubba out of the bedroom. It was dark and Bubba was sleeping next to the baby's crib. Bubba's owner grabbed his collar and Bubba snapped at him. His owners also have a female husky and she and Bubba get along fine. Bubba is not possessive of toys, treats or food. Bubba's owners also say Bubba is in great health other than his eyes. He is very energetic and loves to run and jump and take walks. *Owner Surrender Disclaimer: These are blind and visually impaired dogs that are living in homes, but their owners can no longer keep them.

      Breed: Poodle (Miniature)
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Philadelphia, PA
      Posted Breed: Poodle (Miniature) (medium coat). Please contact os@blinddogrescue.com or call 1-877-254-6301, extension 4, for more information about this pet. Name: Bama Age: Unknown Sex: Male (neutered confirmed) Breed: Poodle Location: Montgomery, AL area Vet/Medical Info: He received a one-year rabies vaccine on October 3, 2015. He had bloodwork done shortly after that, and all looks good! Bama is heartworm negative. Bama weighs about 11 pounds. Owner Info: Bama is an adorable and sweet fellow who was taken off the road by a good samaritan before he was hit by cars. She tells us he appeared to not have been taken care of within the last eight to twelve months, and an owner was not found. His good samaritan has taken him to the vet and cleaned him up, and is now contacting rescues to try to find him a wonderful home! Bama is an indoor dog with run of the house, he is housebroken and they gave us more details: "He is kept indoors and crated at night or when we are gone from the house for more than 5 hrs." Bama is not leash trained. He appears to be completely blind. Bama is good with men, women, and children, and other dogs and cats. He currently lives with three other dogs and three cats. His good samaritan told us that he can be possessive of food, but only when he thinks someone around him is trying to get his food. "Tends to be possessive with food but only when he thinks someone is around him trying to get his food, yes has growled/jumped up at my two big dogs like he was startled. Skin was not broken I believe he was startled has happened twice almost like he was sleeping relaxed and my other two like to play a lot and I think they startled him." Bama has made progress with his good samaritan and is now eating well. "Was unable to eat dry food when we brought him home but we have mixed it in with the can food and he is eating better with having it mixed and now he gets more dry mixed in with can is doing much better." His good samaritan writes that he has adapted well, but they have an active house, and it may be too much for him. "I think he has adapted well but with such an active household of 6 other pets and two children we may be too much for him and that is why we are reaching out....We only want the best for him and if our home wasn't so active we would probably keep him but it is evident that he is struggling with all the activity that we have." Update 2/18/16: Bama's owner also answered a few questions about Bama and told us he's made great progress and is no longer possessive over food! She also told us that Bama has missing teeth and showed signs of gum disease, and that may be why he first had issues with eating. "He is better and I think its because he knows he will not miss a meal. We feed him dry food in the morning and a mixture of wet and dry at night. He seems a lot happier now then when he got here, when he goes outside he plays with the other dogs and loves to roll around in the grass on a warm day." ~ Owner *Owner Surrender Disclaimer: OS dogs are blind and visually impaired dogs that are NOT with Blind Dog Rescue Alliance but whose owners have contacted BDRA because they can no longer keep them.

      Breed: Catahoula Leopard Dog-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Philadelphia, PA
      Posted Breed: Catahoula Leopard Dog / Mixed (short coat). Name: Gibson Sex: Male Breed: Catahoula Leopard Dog / mixed breed Age: Baby (approx. DOB: 12/01/13) Size when grown: Large Level of blindness: Complete Cause of eye issues: Corneal Edema with a secondary component of possible glaucoma. Health otherwise: Good Weight: 20lbs. Good with dogs: Yes Good with cats: Yes Good with kids: Good, but jumpy. Spayed/Neutered: Yes Currently being fostered in: South Carolina *BDRA will transport the dog a reasonable distance, to an approved adopter, at no extra cost, even if out of state. Information: 6/27/13: Honey is a year old catahoula leopard dog. She was abused as a puppy and because of this she is fearful of strangers and men. Once she knows you she warms up quickly to you with kisses and tail wags. Honey loves to play with other dogs no matter what size they are, big or mall doesn't matter to Honey. Honey is just a little girl who is approximately 27-30 lbs. She is small and will not grow any larger. She is very athletic and loves to play in our fenced in yard with our other dogs an foster dogs. Honey currently lives with two teenage boys who she loves to play with. Because of her size she makes the perfect lap dog. Honey will come over and snuggle into my lap and give me kisses as I pet her. She is still learning basic commands. Honey knows some commands. But a family that could take her to basic obedience classes would be best for Honey. Since she still needs to freshen up on her learning techniques. Honey had surgery to remove her one eye that was blind and injured. Honey does have one good eye. Even with one eye Honey can navigate around things very quickly with minimal problems. Occasionally she will accidentally bump into something she didn't see. She is a very loving little girl. Who is shy at first, but once she gets t know you the tail never stops wagging. She is very smart and love to learn. Now that it is warmer out Honey like to jump in the dog pool and splash around a bit to cool off. Before she runs off again to play with her dogie friends. If you are looking for a smaller size, female, catahoula leopard dog, with energy to play with other dogs. Who just loves to hang out with her humans, Honey is your girl. She loves to go for car rides, walks or just laying on the couch cuddling with you. She also enjoys dog toys, dogie pools, bubbles, other dogs, people and food. Honey is very food motivated and would also make a very good agility dog. 8/22/14: Gibson has been our foster for 6 months, since about the time he was 3 months old. He now weighs in at around 40#. Initially, we felt that he was having difficulty adjusting to his blindness and was uncoordinated as a result. Unfortunately, this was not the case. Gibson circles…a lot, and always to his left (counter-clockwise) He still has some weakness in his back end when running and landing, however he can jump quite well. He often times falls to the side when jumping and playing. He can often be found sitting with his head held high - nose in the air as if he is "looking" up at the sky and listening to all that surrounds him, appearing lost in peaceful contemplation. He has had a neurological evaluation at the referral of our regular veterinarian and was diagnosed with a congenital brain malformation. He believes that the symptoms we have seen are a result of this brain issue. It is his hope that if his condition remains unchanged through his second birthday, he will likely live the normal life span of his breed. If he should develop seizures prior to his second birthday, he believes he will likely have a shortened life span. So far, so good…no seizures and his issues have not progressed. He has also been diagnosed with Diabetes Insipidus and is on medication to help with that. He will require the medication during his lifetime. This is not the sugar diabetes, but the water diabetes. He becomes overly thirsty and will drink enormous amounts of water and what goes in must come out…but with the medication, it all remains under control - he drinks normal amounts and has no issues with his "pottying." Despite his medical challenges, Gibson is a VERY sweet boy. He LOVES being near his people and after a chance to run and play, will cuddle up with you and relax on your lap. He gets along with the other dogs in his foster home, although I feel he would do best in a home where he can be the only dog so that he can get the love and attention that he needs. He likes to play chase with toys, but he doesn't necessarily run as quickly as the others and sometimes has a hard time keeping up with them. This doesn't seem to bother him, though, as he just changes gears and decides to lay in the sun with a toy or two and enjoy the warmth on his back. He loves fuzzy, squeaky, rope, bones or stuffed toys, but not necessarily regular balls. He does tend to jump up a little more than we would like, but we have continued to work with him on this issue and he does respond well to telling him "no" as a correction. For that reason, I believe he would do better in a house without young children. He LOVES to eat and looks forward to mealtimes and treats as some of the favorite parts of his day. He enjoys being bathed, lathered and having warm water poured over him…but wasn't all that sure about wading into the lake at the beach. If you are there with him and he feels secure, he will definitely follow. He enjoys going for short walks on leash, but long walks are difficult as he will walk forward for a while before starting to circle again..then walk forward a little more… He is crate trained and will gladly enter his crate for a treat. He is not much of a barker, so when he does bark, we always check on him to see why. He loves being outdoors and has a thing for brooms and rakes. It is actually quite funny and cute as he will chase falling leaves, rake and brooms. He is quite a happy guy and really enjoys life. Although he can have high energy at times, he balances this with calm and relaxation time, as well. He is good in the car, usually just laying down and taking a nap. Gibson is a very special boy with his share of challenges and will require a very special family to welcome him into theirs. That being said, I believe the rewards of having him make the efforts worthwhile. His family will need to be there for him to support him throughout his lifetime. I believe in him and know the perfect family is out there waiting for him to come into their lives. Could that be yours? 3/2/14: Gibson is a very sweet little guy. It is likely that his vision loss was not something he was born with. He is adjusting to his blindness, but can sometimes be uncoordinated when playing or jumping and doesn't always realize where he is in relation to the ground - which results in him landing awkwardly. This does not stop him from playing and enjoying life. He does have a harder time running and keeping up with his foster siblings, but he does VERY well and is super friendly to all animals and people. He is every bit a puppy, has a higher energy level at times, and loves to chew - luckily, he loves to chew his toys, bones, etc. and has left the woodwork and furniture alone. He may try to gnaw on your fingers or sleeve, but corrects easily when told no. He is quite easy-going and is just excited to be out where you are, playing in the leaves and cuddled in your lap. We found out that he seems to love music. If music is played on the television, radio or in person, he stops what he is doing and will come to listen. He LOVES food and treats and has never turned anything to eat down! He is learning how to walk on a leash and does well if you wiggle it in front of him so that he can hear it. We are going to add a bell or beeping device to the leash so he can follow the sound better. Gibson's forever home should, ideally, have experience with a blind dog and have a fully fenced yard for his safety. As he is a little higher energy, does jump and still likes to chew, I would recommend a home without young children. He really is a wonderful boy and has charmed everyone he has met. He will be an excellent addition to your active forever family. If you are interested in adopting Gibson, please fill out our adoption application. The Board of Directors has voted to prohibit the use of Invisible/Electronic fences on Blind Dog Rescue Alliance dogs. This policy will be effective immediately.

Name: Sledge Age: 6 years Sex: Male (neutered) Breed: Lab/Chow Mix Location: Houston, TX area Vet/Medical Info: Sledge is confirmed neutered and up to date on vaccines. He was given a one year rabies vaccine on June 13, 2014, and also a puppy shot, minus the lepto. He was tested for heartworm on the same day and is heartworm negative. Fecal was also negative for parasites. Sledge weighs about 60 pounds. Owner Info: Sledge is a very handsome fellow whose owner is no longer able to care for him as she has two small children. She's tried Craigslist and posting him at a few other places, but has been unable to find a new home for Sledge. She is very much hoping for rescue. She's had Sledge since he was a puppy, where he was being given away at a local feed store. Sledge is an outdoor dog with a fenced yard, he is housebroken and leash trained. He is a friendly and loving boy, and good with people of all ages. Sledge has never shown any aggression towards people, but since he lost his eyesight, he has become possessive over food and has shown aggression toward one of their dogs. His owner writes that he did defend himself when their pit bull mix attacked him, but did not provoke the fight, and that he is not an aggressive dog. They believe this was due to his sudden onset of blindness. They believe Sledge has "glaucoma induced blindness. His eyesight is completely gone, his eyes bulge slightly and are 100% white." Other than his blindness, they write that Sledge has no other health issues. We asked for more detail about how Sledge is with other dogs: "He is fine with my blue heeler, he used to be an inside dog along with my blue heeler. But when we had our first child we moved him outside. Then we got our third dog the pit bull mix and about a year later sledge went blind. Two of them had gotten along fine before he went blind which was approximately two and half years ago. He is a generally good natured dog and still very young and healthy minus his eyesight...If given enough time I am praying that he finds a good home that can give him more attention than I can." They feel Sledge adapts well to new situations "as long as he has a leader to tell him where to go so he won't hurt himself running into things. He is very high energy so if left alone he can hurt his head a great deal." They add that Sledge is a loving dog, and he just loves to the fullest! *Owner Surrender Disclaimer: OS dogs are blind and visually impaired dogs that are NOT with Blind Dog Rescue Alliance but whose owners have contacted BDRA because they can no longer keep them.

Reyna is described as outgoing, and is good with men and women, male and female dogs, and cats. She currently lives with three other dogs, including her mother. Reyna is not possessive of toys, treats, or food, and has never bitten or snapped.

      Posted Breed: Hound / Mixed (short coat). Please contact os@blinddogrescue.com for more information about this pet. Name: Easy Age: 1 year Sex: Female (spayed) Breed: Hound Mix Location: Marrero, LA Vet/Medical Info: Easy is confirmed spayed and up to date on vaccines. She is next due in April. She is microchipped. She was too young for a heartworm test but is on preventative. Easy is completely blind and her caregiver writes that the vet is not sure of the reason for her blindness but it could possibly be from a chemical accident or done with intent. Vascular tissue covers both eyes and one eye is shrunken. Easy weighs about 50 pounds. Owner Info: Easy is a beautiful young hound mix who was found in a ditch and surrendered to a rescuer who is now looking for a loving home for her. She was adopted out once already but returned because the resident dog attacked her. Her rescuer no longer wants to adopt her out to inexperienced handlers. Easy’s current caregiver is a rescuer and boarder and has dogs and cats coming and going daily and Easy needs consistency. *Owner Surrender Disclaimer: These are blind and visually impaired dogs that are living in homes, but their owners can no longer keep them. These dogs are with their owners, and are not in BDRA foster homes. We do our best to screen these dogs, but make no guarantees regarding their temperament.
