I vowed never to get another dog after I lost mine 14 years ago, but a trip to an adoption center with my daughter introduced me to “Jim”!
He’s a 3 yr old pointer mix who has been returned to the shelter twice. First home had small kids and second home had 2 other blind dogs. He was born blind and basically not a priority to anyone.
We’ve only had him 3 days and he’s doing as well as can be expected.my big issue for him is the barking. He barks at and for everything. My heart breaks that everything startles him and I worry about the quality of his life. He knocks into everything and bangs his head. Ouch! We removed furniture and made concessions prior to his arrival. He digs at the rugs, which also puzzles us.
We are not giving up on him. Any suggestions to help us out?
