It is always heartwarming to hear a new rescue story, especially when the rescued dog has a physical disability that makes it harder for the dog to live on its own or to find someone willing to adopt it from a shelter. Here, however, you will see how this blind puppy’s life was completely turned around by a kind hearted person who decided to take a kind action.
The story started when a deputy officer named Hanna arrived at a house which was suspected
of being a methamphetamine cooking lab. When they went inside, they confirmed that it was a meth lab, and they also found a shocking number of nearly 15 dogs or more living inside the house.
Within this huge amount of dogs there was a blind merle Australian shepherd mix puppy. And as the house was evacuated and the dogs were being made ready to be taken to the local shelter, Hanna saw the blind puppy and she couldn’t resist how poor and adorable he looked, she knew he might not be able to survive in a crowded shelter especially with his disability and young age. “He broke my heart. I couldn’t watch him get put on the truck with the other dogs,” she said.
So she simply decided to take the dog with her! And then she took him to the vet’s where he was checked, groomed, cleaned, and given needed medical attention.
Hanna named him James, after James Holman, who was known as “the Blind Traveler” and was famous for exploring the world in the 1800s.
James’s blindness might be genetic, caused by in-breeding, which happened in the horrible conditions he was born in. James now, however, lives in a forever home with one of Hanna’s friends. We are so glad to see that this poor little dog finally found a loving home and caring owners.
