SAFE!!! VA, Amherst "Lexi" Flat Coat Retriever/Border Collie X with Limited Vision






Lexi came into our shelter as a "loose/stray pick up" the first week of September. She was never reclaimed by her family. After her hold time was up we pulled her to the "Adoption Side" of our facility. There was a certain liveliness to Lexi and everyone and the staff found her delightful with a zest for life that was contagious.

She was given vaccines, h/w test, spayed and treated for hookworms on 9/14/11. During the exam the vet noticed the beginnings of Juvenile cataracts and wanted to know if we wanted to proceed with her spay and vetting. We asked the vet to get her spayed ready for adoption.

The vet confirmed a LOVELY, LOVELY personality and that she was very young at only 9 months old, highly adoptable and very intelligent so able to adopt to her vision restrictions.The vet recommended a follow up visit with an Ophthalmologist and we took her for a second opinion in October to VA Tech. Below is the Ophthalmologist evaluation.
Since September we have been unable to find Lexi a home. We are NOT a no-kill shelter so it is urgent that after all this time, money and resources we keep Lexi safe until a forever home can be found but since we are not a no kill, we only have so much time available to hold her.
She is dog friendly, walks beautifully on a leash and is at the front of her kennel every time a visitor enters the building. With her disability she can partial see 80% & 50%, but she mainly sees out of the sides of her eyes. Lexi does not act like a special needs dog, nor does she want any special treatment. She only wants a home without bars and gates.
The cost of her surgery is between $2,000. and $ 2,400. and must be done by her adoptive family, our shelter can not do the surgery for the rescue or adopters.

We have sponsorships totaling $1,000. that would go to her receiving rescue's doctor or her adopter's doctor, as payment toward her eye surgery. Lexi has touched many hearts so the donations have come in - just not a permanent home or rescue to help her.
Please consider helping Lexi as she has so much life in her, so much life left to live and so much love to share. She is very adoptable but we need help finding her a home. We can help with some of her transportation.

Below is the information on Lexi's visit to Virginia Tech Vet Ophthalmologist:
Lexi did really great on her trip to Virginia Tech today. Unfortunately she does have cataracts in both eyes.

The cataracts cover about 80% of her left eye and about 50% of her right eye.

Dr. Binder said if Lexi were a human, she would be classified as legally blind. Being so young she has managed to adapt very well to limited sight. Lexi’s are immature.
If nothing is done, the cataracts will grow and mature, which means they start to liquefy and she will become blind. Once they mature, they can, but don’t always, cause glaucoma, eye infections and extreme pain in her eyes as they start to liquefy. There are drops she can be given that will help to prevent infections, and she would probably always have to have the drops. How quickly they grow, they really can’t say as the timeline varies from dog to dog.

Dr. Binder thinks even if she doesn’t have the surgery, she is still a very adoptable dog with her personality, and many dogs get along fine being blind. Right now Lexi sees better in a low light area than the brighter light areas.

Dr. Binder determined she as a good candidate for the surgery. The cost for cataract surgery for both eyes would run between $2000-2400. If she does get the surgery, there are special eye drops she will need every day for 2 weeks. After 2 weeks, she will need to be taken back to VT where they will do a complete physical and check her eyes to see if there have been any changes. The next day, they will do the surgery and she stays one more night.

Lexi really won over everyone today and two of the vet techs really wanted her, which I told them she was available. Lexi was a little hyper when we first got there (of course having a great dane and a huge german shepherd in the waiting room didn’t help matters at all) but once we got into an exam room she calmed down and was a fantastic patient.

$50 offer to rescue who saves her!

Does anyone have room to squeeze in this senior? She is at Roscommon Animal Shelter, I did not see her listed on Petfinder but Dee Dee emailed me and asked if I can help find her rescue so she IS there!

I will donate $50.00 to the rescue that can save her! I am sure transport can be arranged.

Kenya is probably at least 10-12 years old. She is blind and has some arthritis issues going on. She is sweet and seems to be housebroken and gets around well when we let her out to play. We think she may be a chihuahua/mini pin mix. Thanks for all your help and let me know.

Some things you should know when working with us:

1. To become a Placement Partner with HEART you must complete the Placement Partner Application and agree to the Placement Partner Guidelines. Please contact info@heartofthemidlands.org to complete the process. Animals on this list are only available to 501(c)(3) Placement Partners with the HEART Program.

Not all animals listed on this email are available TODAY! Please note the “FINAL DAY AVAIALABLE” indicating when their time is up. Following your confirmation of each animal you will be notified when they are available to be picked up. You will have 24 hours from time of confirmation to pick up the animals at the shelters.

2. Please reply to this email address to confirm animals you wish to pull. When you reply to confirm animals, please include your email address, what rescue you work with and a contact phone number along with the animal ID#.

3. Dogs are not heartworm tested until a rescue confirms them (unless otherwise noted). If you CANNOT take a HW+ animal, please mention it when you confirm. If heartworm status is not acceptable once it is determined you may decline to take the dog.

4. We CANNOT guarantee the health or behavior of an animal. The animals have not been examined by a veterinarian unless otherwise noted.

5. Please note following a commitment to a specific animal that animal must be picked up at the designated shelter within 24 hours.

6. Pull fees MUST be paid to HEART at the time of confirming the animal, and at the absolute latest, when the animal is picked up from their shelter. We do not have the capability to invoice- sorry! You must arrange your own transport! Please be patient with us. Currently we have a very small staff dedicated to the rescue placement process and they visit each shelter daily. So a good deal of their time is spent in the field. They sift through many emails and calls every day. They will respond to your inquiry, but it may be a brief exchange and may not be immediate.

Mindy

Pit Bull Terrier: An adoptable dog in Kennesaw, GA
Medium • Adult • Female
Mindy (left pic) came to us from Fulton County Shelter. The family who orginally adopted her, took her to Towne and County East Vet to be spayed. The vet told the family that she was deaf, the family decided they didnt want her and took her back to the shelter. The vet technician heard about it and was upset. She decided to contact Deaf Paws Haven. Mindy is now about 3 years old. She is fine with male dogs, not female dogs due she is a female alpha. She is great with her best friend, Mervis, deaf pitbull/bassett mix. We would love to have Mindy and Mervis adopted together. If interesting to adopt Mindy or both, please email to her foster mom at deafpaws@yahoo.com. Thanks.

ATTENTION ALL RESCUES: EXTREMELY URGENT 8-9 MONTH FEMALE PIT SOLD ON CRAIGSLIST/SAVED FROM AN ABUSIVE OWNER..

she is spayed because the lady had the kennel picture from maricopa county animal control and they always spay and nueter their strays. She is also microchiped. I am located in mesa around val vista and southern.

I just want the best possible place for this girl... So you did hear that she is deaf or possibly hard at hearing? My grandma said that she has to be gone by tomorrow.... so i just hope someone helps out soon.

PLEASE CROSS POST, I just spoke with Amanda and was informed that this little girl has had a rough start in life, she winded up at the pound, adopted to a family who decided they didn't want her and sold her. The woman that bought her didn't want her and was extremely abusive to her she tried giving the pup away at a Safeway and that is when Amanda came to her rescue. Amanda over heard the women yelling at this poor little girl and when she asked if everything was okay the woman said she doesn't want the dog and gave it to Amanda. Amanda's family has a dog who is aggressive towards this pup so Amanda has the pup in her room while she desperately tries to find a rescue to take her in. If you are able to help both these sweet girls (Amanda) and pup please contact Amanda at kollmeyera@yahoo.com. Amanda lives off of Southern and Val Vista but her Dad is willing to transport the pup if needed.

XXX URGENT!! MD, Baltimore "Benton" one-eyed PBT



This is Benton, he is a one eyed pit bull at BARCS in Baltimore, MD. Benton has recently been diagnosed with Lymes disease....being a one eyed pit with lymes disease is probably going to be a death sentence for this sweet young boy....please cross post to help save Benton's life.

Yesterday afternoon we sent Benton out to a local vet hospital to be evaluated for his lameness and he came back with a strong positive Lyme's test. He is now on Doxycycline for 28 days and Rimadyl for his discomfort.

Benton is the biggest sweetheart and I really hope there is a rescue out there who is willing to take him in. The chances of a Lyme's positive, one eyed pit bull being adopted from a shelter are not great but I think this guy would shine in a foster home where people could really get to know him. He is listed as 2 years but I'm guessing based on his teeth that he is even younger (as young as 10 months even), weighs 66# and has been vaccinated and is heartworm negative.

If you can help Benton please let us know right away.

VA, Moneta "Anahola" Deaf boxer/lab X puppy



I just drove 64 miles to meet this sweet little girl. She is in Moneta VA and she is a 7 month old white boxer and lab mix. She is deaf and she is being boarded at a Vet Clinic because her owner is being treated in a medical facility. The owner’s mom called me and I went to visit this little sweet girl at the Vet’s office. She has been in a crate at the Vet’s office for a week so you can imagine how excited she was to see me. She is 100% puppy.

Her personality is that of a boxer- lab mix. She is just happy and high energy. She has not been trained and she is completely deaf. I spent a total of 10 minutes with this little girl and taught her to sit and lie down. By the third “lay down” command I decided to ask her for a “roll over” and she did it right away (this blows my mind because I can’t get Nitro to roll over to save my life)!!! She is very smart. She would make an amazing agility dog because she was watching me and she has a lot of energy. She is not crate trained but they are taking her out every two hours. I have asked the owner to do a UTI test to make sure she doesn’t have a Urinary Tract Infection. Nitro had one when I got him and I could not figure out why he was having accidents in his crate. So she will have the Vet check for a UTI. It could be that the owner did not spend time crate training so who ever fosters or adopts this dog will have to start with crate training first.

Because this puppy is deaf she will need a family with a secure fenced yard. Also because she is still young and needs to have someone who is really serious about teaching her the sign commands it would be better if she went to a family with older children.

If you have always wanted a super smart puppy with the best of both breeds and the challenge of training a deaf dog, she might be the perfect dog for you.
They told me her name and I think it is Anahola but I could be wrong. Because she is deaf she doesn’t know her name yet anyway so you could name her whatever you want.

They also told me that she was a Boxer Pit mix but she doesn’t have any Pit characteristics what so ever. She has coloring of a white boxer and the coat and tail of a yellow lab (short, thick and soft). She acts exactly like all the Lab puppies in all my levels classes and her head is shaped like a Lab mix.

If you are interested in meeting and foster this little girl or if you want to give her a loving and patient forever home,

AL, Valley "Hazard" deaf white boxer



I’m not sure why anyone would give this beautiful white boxer a name of “Hazard” but rest assured you can easily change a deaf dogs name because they usually only know the sign for “come” and “treat” to get a great recall. This boy is a sweet white boxer who is already neutered and he is deaf.

He is great with kids, dogs and cats.

XXX URGENT!! NC, Nashville "Kasey" Visually-impaired Cocker Spaniel



Kasey is a black and white Cocker Spaniel. He is approx. 6 or 7 years old. He was found on the side of the road by a family, who brought him to us for treatment. Through an unfortunate turn of events his family was no longer able to care for Kasey so he come to Nash County Animal Hospital. When he was first found he had no fur and a severe skin infection. Kasey also has allergies which causes his skin problems. He has not been allergy tested so we dont know what he is allergic to. Kasey has a vision impairment, where the gland of the third eye lid becomes visible. This can be fixed by surgery but due to his other eye problems it may not be permanently fixed. However, Kasey is good with kids. He will form attachments with the family so therefore he has separation anxiety. Kasey is a very loving dog and with the right family who is willing to work with him he will make a great family dog. Kasey deserves a home where he can spend the rest of his days resting easy and enjoying life.


Thank you for your time. Please pass this on and help these special dogs find special homes.

To find out more about these dogs or to meet them please contact Nash County Animal Hospital at (252) 459- 4001.

Thank you,
