Is he blind? Yes…Is he sitting around lamenting it? No…Does he wish folks would forget about it and see him for his virtues? Heck yes! This dog is amazing!!! Everyone that meets him is in awe…of his physical beauty, his gentle affection, his playfulness, his adeptness at figuring out his situation and surroundings, his stinkerness, his mobility and ability (both largely unhindered by lack of sight)! He’s a lovely package, short of the one thing…a home of his own…


Of course blindness has its limits. We’re keeping him away from swimming pools and cliffs. We’d like to place him in a home without cats or small dogs (he’s big and may give chase, not being able to read their body language)…SMOKEY likes other dogs…We think medium to large dogs are best as playmates…He has two such dog roomates and enjoys their company. A fenced back yard is a must…He learns his place and space very well and needs to run and cut loose and will do this…NEEDS to do this to feel free…He also needs a place where he isn’t alone all day by himself…


His details: 2 years old, 84 lbs, German shepherd dog. Two separate injuries resulting in two separate eye losses, the last being a car strike…Smokey is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped. He is heartworm positive and has started slow kill treatment. Adoption donation is $250.
