***Needs forever home still, contact Pound Puppies below if interested in adopting***
Conner is a 2 year old neutered male border collie and pit bull or American bulldog mix who was adopted out by Charlyne's Pound Puppies in Thorndale, TX to a young man in the Thorndale area about a year and a half ago. Unfortunately, during that time Conner was bitten in the face by a snake and is now almost completely blind. The family was unable to take care of him properly, and Conner was returned to the group.
Now he needs an understanding home that can help him adjust to being blind. Conner is still struggling with basic things like not running into walls even when his handler tries to provide oral and physical cues. He is a happy, loving dog with people, but he has developed difficulties with some other dogs since losing his sight. Conner will run into other dogs, which some think is aggressive, and he is uncomfortable with very active dogs trying to solicit play. Unfortunately, Conner has always been an outside dog, so he needs training on being indoors. However, he should be indoors for his safety.
When Conner is comfortable he actually behaves like a sighted dog outdoors though. See: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tMVms6s6FFw
