About Ghost

HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS! Let's get Ghost the best Christmas present a dog can have, a forever home!!!! Ghost came from a high-kill southern TX shelter with very bad chronic eye infections and he was brought to PA to begin the start of his new life. We had hoped to be able to get his infections under control and save his eyes, but upon evaluation we learned his right eye was non-existent and his left eye had no vision at all and no reaction to light. Rather than make him spend the rest of his life needing eye ointment twice a day to stave off infections, we opted to do the kinder thing and remove them. Being blind hasn't stopped him at all. He had also tested positive for anaplasmosis, and has successfully completed treatment. This sweet, goofy boy is finally ready to begin searching for his family. Ghost is an approximately 8 year old (but acts years younger) He loves a loud squeak toy, or something he can shred, and a good game of tug. Ghost is kid-friendly but will do best in a home with older children who can understand how to approach him without spooking him. Dog-savvy cats are no problem for this guy. As long as the cat stays out of his way, there are no issues. He does well with laid back dogs and slow introductions. We're going to say large dogs only, to be safe. Understandably, he's a bit growly and unsure with new people and dogs, but as long as you go slow, he adjusts well. If you have food, you'll be his best friend. He's a bit of a puller on a leash, but isn't going to drag you around the neighborhood. He will be adopted out with a 'blind dog' harness as well, so others know to give him the necessary space. He is crate trained, and also does well in a gated, husky-proof area. Because he can't see, his nose does get him into a tad more trouble than other pups, as he has to investigate smells up close and personal (I've caught him on my table a few times, investigating lingering smells of food, and he's wriggled his way behind my couch somehow).
