NB: We do not rehome interstate or to applicants under 25. It is our policy not to rehome dogs in the Sunraysia area. As rescue groups have transported thousands of homeless dogs from Mildura and Sunraysia pounds over the last decade, we do not intend to send any back there.
Carly is a very playful and happy puppy. She was born blind as her optic nerves did not form properly in utero, but that hasn’t stopped her from living life. She will require lifetime anti inflammatory drops in her right eye to try and reduce the chances of glaucoma occurring. If glaucoma does occur, then her eye will need to be removed but that will not affect Carly’s long term quality of life.
She does not know anything other than being blind, so she confidently takes on the world. She will run into objects, but she bounces right off them and happily runs off in the other direction. She is beginning to learn how to map her sleeping area, by remembering what object is where and therefore where she is in her space. This skill will grow with time, but she needs a family dedicated to putting in the time needed for training a blind dog.
She would love to have someone who is home with her a lot, and a small doggy friend who will play with her and sleep next to her. She wants the constant companionship of another dog and needs a human who can check on her regularly.
She loves spending time exploring the grass in the garden and being exposed to all the different smells and textures. She also loves playing tug of war with toys, and will happily chase her doggy friend by listening to the sounds of their steps. She comes to her name when called and loves cuddles.
Carly is permanently blind, but she loves life and will be a joy to have for the right family.
