Name: Uriah Age: 10 years (45#) Breed: Pit Bull Sex: Male (Not Neutered) Location: Pacific, MO Vet Info: UTD on vaccines (Heartworm positive, being treated for HW by caregiver and doing well on treatment). Owner Info: Uriah is blind and was found as a stray. HIs owner was located but declined to get him. He is currently being cared for by a Good Samaritan and her family. His current caregiver reports 'I had this dog roam into my yard 2 weeks ago. He is about 10 years old according to my vet, not good with other animals, not neutered, he is completely blind. He is super sweet with us and was completely fine with the kids he has been around. I found the owner. The owner never came and got him. He said his name was Uriah, he had been an outdoor dog. He has not been since we had him. We have had him in our garage and rotating him in different rooms of our house that our dogs are not in. As long as we are consistent taking him out he is pretty good about potting outside, only a couple accidents. He has caught on to audible training and repetition for his blindness and learning where things are and his way around. We have four dogs and cannot do this permanently, he is super sweet with us; can do this for a bit but not long term.' Uriah is described as an indoor dog confined to one area of the house. He is housebroken, leash trained, outgoing, nervous and good with men, women and teenagers. His current care giver reports 'He (Uriah) knows the word no, and come here, he does more audible noises. Kissing sounds to come, stepping noises to go down a step, bowl shaking to get to his bowl•À%BD'•À%BD|He is very smart and has picked up audibles sounds and repetition well. As long as his food and water bowl and bed are left in the same spot. He learns where they are.' Uriah needs to be an only dog. Per the caregiver 'He (Uriah) was fine with my dogs when we introduced him. We were not leaving them alone together or letting them out to go to the bathroom together. My dogs were in our fenced in patio he was in the fenced in back yard. Our neighbors let their dogs out who are aggressive (they are usually ok with my dogs but my dogs are usually pretty passive and besides running up and down the fence to play the older dogs ignore them, they do try to bite 23 year old son if he tries to open the gate to go in the back yard instead of through the house) they were barking at him. I was bringing him in, it was going fine but as we got close the gate, I don't know if he felt threatened or what he went over to the fence and barked back. Their dog is a Rot mix stuck his head through my fence (we have farm fencing) and put Uriah's head in his mouth. I pulled Uriah out and then I got bit in the process by Uriah, I let go surprised. He went back over and got the rot in his mouth. The neighbor came over and pulled them apart. I put Uriah's leash on him with no problem. Took him to the vet to have him checked over. They treated him with no issues. I tried to introduce him to once of my dogs again about 5 days later and he growled and pulled at the lead. He was fine before, but I think maybe he is traumatized. He is blind and I think needs to be an only pet•À%BD'•À%BD|He has been wonderful with humans. He loves to be petted and cuddled. We just have to move him from room to room when our other dogs are around. He has been around kids 10 and older•À%BD'•À%BD|he is blind and probably doesn't need little kids surprising him.' Uriah's caregiver reports he is 'super sweet and loveable with people. He is an old guy and just needs to find someone to love him through his winter years. As long as the a person is consistent he is pretty good about pottying outside. We have been working with him. He has only had a couple accidents, not bad for two weeks.' Does anyone have room for Uriah? **Owner Surrender Disclaimer: These are blind and visually impaired dogs who are living in homes, but their owners can no longer keep them.
