Sweetie [ADOPTED NOVEMBER 1] is a senior girl who has very few options. She came into rescue over a year ago. She came from a southern Illinois shelter where they felt she would be difficult to adopt and should go to a breed rescue. At that time she was heartworm positive. We treated the heartworm and she is now negative. That was just the beginning of Sweeties problems. She is completely blind in one eye and is somewhat fearful of anything she can't see. For that reason she cannot go to a home with children or novice owners. She is difficult to groom for the same reason. Once Sweetie gets to know you, she is a wonderful, loving dog but it will need an owner with a tremendous amount of patience.
