Pet of the Week: A Special Needs sweet boy

**Special Needs** This sweet boy is Fuggin.
fug– comes from the Latin, where it has the meaning “flee; move; run.”
He is an eight-month-old Shepherd-Husky cross and has been blind since birth, but he doesn’t know he is any different!
He will need a special home where he can learn and play and reach his full potential. Exercise and discipline will be extremely important for this very active guy — as well as affection.
He is very smart, learns fast and wants to please – so you’ll need to keep him challenged.
He still needs work on his house-training but is vaccinated and will be neutered before adoption.
Fuggin does well with another calm neutral dog that is still able to hold its own with him, but will need someone who is home frequently and has the experience and patience to live with a blind dog.
If you meet all of Fuggin’s requirements please give us a call for a time to meet him. 519-372-1911.
No  children under 14yrs
No apartments
Experience with blind dogs preferred
Fenced yard preferred
Someone who is home frequently/works from home

The 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.  Whatever the reason, these faithful friends have no choice but to wait … wait for someone new to take them in and love them,” says Shelter Manager, Deb Takeda.
