Shelters are full of animals waiting for their happy ending and forever homes, some animals find it harder to realize that dream, especially those with special needs or disabilities.
Many pets with disabilities are left in shelters by their families because they do not want to take on the responsibilities that pets with special needs bring.
The sweet dumpling is a golden retriever from the Gold Coast in Australia, she is a nice and sympathetic dog, but unfortunately she is overweight and completely blind, her eyes hurt, so they were removed.
It was too much for the owners to take care of the dog so they handed her over to Labrador Rescue when she was 10 years old…
“I didn’t have the best start to life,” her adoption bio, written in Dumpling’s voice, reads. “I had some puppies over the years and I guess my old owners didn’t need me anymore.”
Seeing families abandoning pets in shelters is always sad, especially older dogs, but Dumpling is doing great despite that failure, since joining the Labrador Rescue, she has lost 28 pounds.
Now she is looking for a home forever that will accept her as she is, because in addition to her blindness, she is an amazing sweet pet.
Dumpling is great with other pets and if needed can be left alone at home, if possible, she would love a house without stairs, but most importantly she wants a real family.
“I’m extremely sweet, charming and good natured,” her bio reads. ‘’I don’t need much in life just a nice warm home in which to enjoy my last few years.”
The dumpling has already been microchipped, tested for worms, desexed and updated on all its flea and tick treatments.
We hope that the cute baby will find a home forever as soon as possible, because she really deserves it.
