I just heard from the shelter that poor Tiny's puppies are leaving for rescue, and she will be left behind.  :( 

I've gotten new photos of her.  They are attached. 

She is just a little girl weighing 37 lbs., with a beautiful smile.

Per the message below from Carlean at the shelter, little Bradley went to rescue, but poor momma Tiny has no interest.  Her puppies will be old enough after this week to be separated from her. 

Linda;
I just took Bradley to rescue this morning to a rescue in AtlantaNo interest in Tiny.

Folks,
Carlean at the Chattooga County Animal Control Shelter got in touch with us about two visually impaired dogs at their shelter.  This is a kill shelter, and these two need out ASAP. 

One is a momma dog that came in with two puppies about 6 to 7 weeks old.  The puppies have been tested and neither one is blind.  Her name is Tiny and she is said to be very sweet.  Within a week her puppies will be old enough to be without mom and will be available for rescue/adoption, then what will happen to blind momma? 

The other is a little male Shih Tzu who came in as a stray, and is blind in one eye, who the shelter is calling Bradley.  He was chased down the road and did bite at the chaser. Poor little guy was probably so frightened.

Two visually impaired dogs at kill shelter - Summerville, GA
 

Chattooga County Animal Control - Summerville, GA has two dogs that are visually impaired.  
One is a Shih Tzu about 8 years old, 12 lbs, blind in one eye.  Came in as a stray, very sweet and friendly, has been groomed since he came in and had a depo shot for his flea allergies.  The shelter is calling him Bradley.  Not neutered, no microchip, came in as stray.  Bit someone, but they were chasing him down the road and a fear bite, but he is truly a lap dog, and not aggressive at all. 

Tiny is the other one.  She is a black/tan dog, about 37 lbs and so, so very sweet I would guess.  She is about 1-2 years of age, came in with two puppies; puppies about 6-7 weeks old.  We noticed she was bumping into things, so our vet examined her and said her retinas are attached, but is definitely visually impaired.   Our vet recommended whatever rescue got her, to take her to an ophthalmologist, and they can more extensive testing.  When I had in the exam room, she jumped up on a table about 6 inches off the ground without any guidance, but her eyes will not follow you.  We think she is operating off of smell and sound.   She is very very sweet, and doesn't know she can't see very well. 

If you can help, please let me know.

Shelter phone number is: 706-857-0679.
