My husband and I decided to adopt a dog through a rescue. There were several things we were looking for in a dog. I preferred a female. NOT a puppy. Very calm ( our dalmation mix is very old and afraid of hyper dogs). A small dog that gets along with other dogs and cats (we have two very large, older cats). Well, that pretty well ruled out every dog in Nebraska!
We were going to Illinois for a family reunion soon so I decided to look at rescues there. Wasn’t online long before I found and fell in love with Sameen. She is a 7 year old Lhasa apso mix. She is so sweet and loving!! Our older dog and 2 cats love her.
There are several things I need to learn about living with a blind dog. She suffers horrible separation anxiety. If she doesn’t know where I am, she cries and howls- it’s heartbreaking! Sometimes it seems that she must be able to see shapes or shadows, but he previous vet was sure she is totally blind.
