Pet of the Week: A special little girl

Grey Bruce Animal Shelter offers a safe place for pets that have no choices left.
“Sometimes, their owners have had no choice either. They, too, may have aged and had to move into a facility where their loved companions are not allowed or, in the final step of life, may have died leaving their pets behind,” says Shelter Manager, Deb Takeda.  “Whatever the reason, these faithful friends have no choice but to wait … wait for someone new to take them in and love them.”
Sometimes too, they come from very unusual circumstances that are unfair for anyone, human or otherwise.


“This is the second blind dog I’ve fostered and I’m amazed at how well they do,” says Shelter Manager Deb Takeda.

This special little girl is Sydney. She has a few challenges and so will need special attention. She is blind. Her eyes were removed due to complications resulting from glaucoma.
She gets around well, proceeds slowly until she has a feel for her surroundings and then she does really well.  On top of this she is diabetic and requires insulin shots twice a day and her diet has to be watched. Fortunately, she is very good about having the needles and loves to get a treat afterwards.
She is nervous of new people but warms up quickly and is playful and affectionate. She’s good with dogs and cats and fine with kids but, since too much activity is overwhelming for her, we are looking for a quiet home for her.
Sydney is a chihuahua-pomeranian X, approximately eight years old, spayed female. She is Up To Date on vaccinations.  If you think you could give a home to this special needs girl, call the shelter at 519-372-1911 for an appointment to meet her.
