Iris is Super Urgent! Please share this baby on Fb if you see and read her ad. Thank you so much! **Owner Surrender Disclaimer: These are blind and visually impaired dogs that are living in homes, but their owners can no longer keep them. These dogs are with their owners, and are not in BDRA foster homes. We do our best to screen these dogs, but make no guarantees regarding the information posted.** 'Please know that as much as we wish we could, we are unable to help with transport.' Update 2/26/18 - I spoke to her owner and Iris is still in urgent need of a rescue and is still being confined to the laundry room. Her owners write that she was originally adopted from a shelter for their daughter, but Iris became too much for them to manage. They know she needs more than they can give, and they are desperately hoping we can help. Name: Iris Breed: Heeler/Dalmatian Mix Sex: Female (spayed per owner) Age: 1 year, 4 months Location: Bryan, TX Vet Info: Iris is spayed and up to date on vaccines per her owner. She has had a recent heartworm test, but her owners do not recall the results have offered to pay for another heartworm test. Iris weighs about 60 pounds. She is completely blind from glaucoma. Her owners tell us that her labs and eye pressures were normal at her last vet visit. Owner Info: Iris's owners write, 'She's a dog that needs a lot of time spent with. She chews and chews and chews and I have lost so many items from her chewing. Now, Iris is blind from glaucoma and we keep her in the laundry room. I can not let her roam the house due to her tearing things up....She is a very smart dog and very loving but I have no time to give her.' They have tried a trainer, but their daughter did not have the time to invest in training. Iris is an indoor dog confined to one area of the house. She is housebroken and leash trained. Iris is a smart girl and knows the commands, sit and lay down. She is described as outgoing, and is a friendly girl. Iris is good with men and women, male and female dogs, and cats, and currently lives with two cats and two other dogs. Iris's owners also feel she'd be good with children, and gave us more details: 'As far as children, my youngest is 11 so I've not seen her with children. I would spend some time throwing her ball in the back yard until she went inside, but sadly those days are gone. She's a sweet dog and my guess would be she's fine with young children. She jumps up on the others at times but not me... so I know she is very trainable. There is just not enough time spent with her.' Iris is not possessive of toys, treats, or food and has never bitten or snapped. Iris's owners want us to know what a sweet girl she is and are very much hoping we can help! 'She is a very loving dog. Very sweet and always wants to please.' Please email OS@blinddogrescue.com if you are interested in Iris.
