This is a last post regarding the 3 year old Blind Pit Bull at
Lewisville Animal Control.
Our office manager went by yesterday to
meet him, and it was devastating. It is much worse than thought - we
need to act now, or end this sweet little boy's suffering. Can
We have nobody that will take him in to foster, so we
are powerless. We have been trying to move heaven and earth to
find one, or even another group that could take him and save his
life. Yesterday, Sarah Sharp, our office manager, saw him at Animal
Control. The report was not good, as quoted from Sarah -
"What I saw yesterday was heartbreaking. The 3 yr old adult male
brown Pit Bull, that has been blind since birth, was in a run
separated from the other dogs by a few cages. The entire time I was
observing him he was making a constant circle in his cage. Not like
a large animal at the zoo paces due to stress, but a confused,
When he heard a sound from me, he quickly came
to the front, but bumped in to the cage. He cocked his head to try
and locate the new sound among the barking chorus and then began his
He is reported to be friendly and had lived with one
owner since birth, up until the owner moved to an apartment that
won't allow the dog.
He was given to another man, returned to the
adopted by another friend and then returned to the shelter
where he has been since last week.
This poor creature only knew one
environment and had adjusted well, and now has been moved several
times with different people. In spite of all of this, he remains
extremely friendly to the staff at the shelter. He welcomes any
human attention. My heart wants to see him safely in to a loving
home where he can be cared for, but my concern is for what he is
having to endure now. To me, this is extremely cruel for such a
special needs creature. What is the best decision for this dog?"
We are really struggling with this one. We so desperately want to
rescue him, and save him, but after seeing the condition he is in,
and how he is emotionally suffering just by being in the shelter, we
are wondering if the more humane thing for him at this point would
be for us to pull him out of animal control and see him safely to
the Rainbow Bridge where he will suffer no more.
We are really having a hard time with this, and wish there was someone who could help. We don't know what to do- we are making a plea to anyone out there that can help- this little boy needs OUT immediately, or we need to ease his suffering.
It truly is a desperate situation, due to his condition.
ANyone can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org me or call me (214-707-5210) if
they can help, or if there is another group out there that is
planning to take him in. We just need to know he is getting out, or
we might have to make a decision on what is best for him, since we
have now seen him, and the condition he is in.
