As one owned by eight rescued animals, I subscribe to many sites on Facebook that cover the plight of "unwanted" pets. Just before Christmas I saw a bedraggled, blind, 10 year old Pomeranian that had been turned in at a shelter about 1.5 hours away.
Who would take in such a dog? It worried me the entire weekend so first thing on Monday I called and asked them to make sure that they held him until we could get there to meet him.
He growled and snapped when the staff picked him up. He was dirty, underweight, had bad teeth, arthritic hips, damaged ears and a skin condition. He has cataracts. My husband is ill, so sat in a chair while I sat on the floor to get acquainted. Then I picked him up so that my husband could hold him - no snapping, no growling. He knew he had found a home.
After a few vet visits and some heavy duty grooming Milton (named after the blind English poet) has put on some needed weight and adjusted to his surroundings. We have a large yard with no obstructions and he loves to wander without fear of bumping into anything. He ignores the cats and is not intimidated by our three large dogs.
We love this little senior and hope that the love will keep him around a long time.
