Look at Tracy's smile! Doesn't she look like a happy, lively girl? She is! She loves to run about inside the fenced yard of her foster home and romp with the other dogs. If you were to give her a call, those pretty ears would perk up and she would find her way across the yard to join you. And what, you might ask, is so special about that? Well, lively Miss Tracy has significant vision loss. But, as she runs inside her fenced yard or plays with her canine foster siblings, you'd never suspect that her vision is impaired. Tracy, an approximately 9-year-old 28-lb. Rat Terrier mix has a genetic condition that will likely cause her to become blind someday. Fortunately it has progressed gradually enough to enable Tracy to fine-tune her other senses so that she can rely on them when she can no longer see. She can follow your voice to find you on the sofa, where she will happily sit with you to be petted and have her ears rubbed. And she can use her nose skillfully to detect the difference between dogs and cats. She knows that she gets along with the former and would love to have a dog buddy or two in her home, but she is most definitely not a fan of the latter. Tracy is house-trained and walks nicely on a leash. She would so love to be adopted right now to have time to acclimate to her new home while she can still see a bit. Besides, if she can truly see your face for just a little while, she'll always have that vision to hold in her heart as her sight dims. Tracy is a wonderful companion, who isn't asking for your pity. She's only asking for a chance.
