Adorable dog with both eyes removed is looking for a loving home.


Adorable dog with both eyes removed is looking for a loving home.

After becoming ill, this lovely dog had both of her eyes removed and is looking for a new home.

Rosie is a 2 year old brown and white Jack Russell terrier who needs a little more attention than most other dogs her age.

She had already lost sight in both eyes when she arrived at Hope Rescue Centre in Wales.

Her glaucoma, though, was still causing her discomfort.

She underwent surgery to have her eyes removed on the advise of a veterinarian.

Rosie is now ready to venture out into the world with a new family after a long and challenging journey.

Her future owners, on the other hand, will have to take extra precautions with her, especially when out on walks.

“Rosie does require some extra attention on walkies due to her lack of vision to avoid her bumping into things/falling off curbs,” Hope Rescue Centre says.

Despite this, Rosie has been learning to adapt quickly thanks to the help and support of her current carers.

“Her foster home has been working hard to teach her cues to let her know what’s coming up and it does not take her long to map out her surroundings,” the shelter explains

Rosie, a dog with complicated needs, is best suited to “experienced owners who have a safe property so she may freely roam the garden without the need for a lead,” according to Hope Rescue Centre.

“Rosie is wary of new people and does need to be gently introduced to them but with the help of a few treats it doesn’t take her long to get used to a new person, once she knows you she is very affectionate but does prefer not to be picked up,” Hope Rescue Centre adds.

Rosie is not appropriate to any household with small children under the age of 14 or smaller pets like as cats, according to the shelter.

Any potential adoption would also need to be cautious when taking walks with the high-energy Jack Russell, who still enjoys chasing other animals and is rather fast.

While in an ideal scenario she would like to be the only dog in the house, they suggest she should benefit from having “a calm canine that she could buddy up for on walks regularly.”

Described as a “very clean” dog who, once familiar with her surroundings, “can be left for a few hours”, while caring for the young canine offers challenges, the animal shelter insists it comes with its own rewards.

“Rosie will make a wonderful addition to the right home, who can look past her disability and see the active and playful side of her but also the sensitive girl that does need reassurance in a noisy world!”

According to the Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp. (MSD) Veterinary Manual glaucoma affects around 1.7% of dogs in North America alone.

The condition occurs due to an imbalance in the production and drainage of fluid in the eye.

This leads to a build-up of fluid that increases eye pressure and, in turn, can lead to damage of both the retina and optic disk.

There are two types of glaucoma. Open-angle glaucoma is largely painless and more gradual, beginning with blind spots and leading to loss of vision over an extended period of time.
