Ottawa Dog of the Week for February 11th
Meet an amazing and inspiring animal. She is a four year old yorkie who was born with degenerative retinal atrophy. As a result she has now lost her vision. But don’t feel sorry for her. She lives her life like any other dog. She loves Bruce Pit, where she runs off leash with her brothers. We use a bell that allows her to keep in touch with us. She plays with her fur brothers and it is cute to see a 100lbs lab running away from her.
We rescued her from being euthanized as her previous owner passed away and no one was willing to take her. We were her last resort. I can say it was the best decision we ever made. There is such a special love we have for her and everyone who meets her falls in love with her too.
She is a little love bug and is incredibly smart. We learned rather quickly that she can map a room or path in her mind very quickly. She only needs to be there once and does not bump into anything.
She truly inspires me as she does not allow her “disability” stop her from living a full and happy life. If only humans could do that.
I know that that each fur baby holds a special place in their owners heart and I am not saying she is more important than other animals, but perhaps her story will show others that a dog with a disability is just as wonderful and they bring such joy to your life.
This dog is NOT up for adoption. The Ottawa Dog of the Week posts feature a family dog in Ottawa. Each week an Ottawa dog gets to be a star.
The Ottawa Dog of the Week dogs are from loving homes and are not available for adoption.
