The staff and volunteers at the shelter are just shocked that anyone would simply abandon an animal like this and leave him to fend for himself, so badly handicapped and completely defenseless. And yet, with all of this going against him ... he is a very sweet and loving dog. He has a wonderful attitude and a big smile. He walks very well on a leash and relies on his sense of smell and the guiding touch of people to help him get around. He also seems to get along well with other dogs and he has been seen leaning on other dogs and following them around, sort of using them as his "guide dogs" and the other dogs seem very willing to help him out. He has no trouble finding food and water in his bowls and he will take treats right out of your hand.
Obviously, he has very special needs. And the number one thing he needs is a permanent home and a family who will love him and help him lead the best life that he can. This poor dog has so much going against him in life and he has already been abandoned once. We do not want to see him mistreated ever again.
If you or anyone you know might be interested in giving him a permanent home, please contact Jamie Martinez, our Adoption Coordinator at Dekalb Animal Control. Jamie can be reached at 404-294-2165 or 678-654-6988. Her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org,ga.us. You are also welcome to go by the Dekalb Animal Control shelter anytime during their regular business hours (M-F 10am-5pm, Sat 10am-4pm, closed on Sundays and holidays) and see him or even take him out for a walk on a leash. It would certainly make his day.
I hope that someone can help him out. He deserves it. Thanks.
