**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.** Name: Remington Age: 12 years (born in 2006) Breed: Chihuahua/Jack Russell mix Sex: Male (neutered- confirmed) Location: Charleston, SC Vet Info: Remington is confirmed neutered. He is UTD on vaccines and has had a heartworm test and it was negative. The vet said he lost his sight back in October of 2015. He is around 14 pounds. The owner says he is in good health otherwise. Owner Info: Remington was taken in by an acquaintance of his original owner. His current caretaker says, 'I took Remington in back in March/2018 from an acquaintance whose health deteriorated fast. I run a small pet sitting business in my home and usually have a foster. Because of Remington's special needs, I am unable to care for him the way he deserves.' His caretaker has tried networking him to find him a new home but so far hasn't had any luck. Remington is an indoor dog confined to one area of the house. He is not housebroken or leash trained. His caretaker shared, 'He doesn't seem to know much of anything in terms of commands. She (previous owner) trained him to use pee pads most of his life.' Remington is a bit nervous and shy at first. He does best with men and women. He is good with cats. Remington is ok with the other dogs he currently lives with but has some issues during feeding time. His caretaker reports, 'During feeding time Remington can get a little snarky, but that is usually it. I think with him being blind and his life turned upside down in the last year, he is unsure of himself.' His caretaker thinks there was a little scuffle while she was away one day so she takes precautions now and keeps him separate for the most part. Remington's caretaker feels he will adapt well to a new environment saying, 'He is a sweet pup who just wants his own lap to sleep on. I think in the right environment with not a lot of activity he would be wonderful. I don't believe he was properly socialized. He did have a housemate who had died last year, also.' Remington's caretaker wants to find a home where he will get lots of attention. His caretaker wants us to know, 'I believe in the right environment with one on one care, Remington could be a great dog. My life is too busy to give him the extra attention he deserves. He is sweet and loving. And when I come home he is letting me know he is available for attention.' She also shared, 'I know the lady who was helping his owner had some grandchildren, so I think he is okay with kids, if they are gentle. As for other dogs, as long as he is separated during feeding time and properly introduced, I don't see him being aggressive towards anyone. He loves car rides! ‰'ÛÜPlease contact os@blinddogrescue.com. Please note we will ask for a vet reference. 'Please know that as much as we wish we could, we are unable to help with transport.'
