Chloe [Adopted 9/27/2011] is a 6 to 8 year old female who came to us from an inner-city shelter with a very high kill rate. She was in deplorable condition and was scheduled for euthanasia. Her one eye was injured and resulted in blindness in that eye. We soon learned she was also deaf. Although she has these handicaps, it does not stop her from being a loving pet. She is housetrained and crate trained and loves to have her belly rubbed. She loves her people and will give you a hug if you ask her. She thinks other dogs and cats are just fine.
Update Aug 30, 2011 from the Foster home
I have had Chloe now for about 6 weeks. She is a very sweet dog and for the most part very quiet. She is deaf but every once in a while she will just start barking. It doesn't last long. She gets along fine with the other dogs and cats. She wants to be very close to her person at all times. Every move I make, she makes with me. When she arrived her health was poor, but now she is very healthy now. She is starting to come out of her shell and will run and play when I come home after being out for awhile. She is wonderful with the groomer, in fact my groomer said this one is "a keeper". At night she finds a place on the floor in my bedroom and sleeps the whole night thru. She is getting much better on her walks and loves to be out with the other dogs. I will have a hard time giving this one up.
