Special Appeal for Rocky
Please can you help us with poor Rocky
Rocky is a 5yr old Red Shar pei boy who is completely blind. He is neutered, fully vaccinated, micorchipped, flea and worm treated and will be rehomed with 5 weeks free pet insurance.
Poor boy Rocky found himself abandoned in the pound over 3 months ago, he appears to have been passed around from home to home before being abandoned. It was immediately apparent that this poor lad had some serious problems with his eyes, he not only had large well established cataracts in both eyes leaving him with very limited vision, but he also had further problems with a glaucoma condition prevalent in Shar pei known as POAG. We have battled with the help of our vets for many months to try and get this under control for Rocky but the pressure in his eyes was increasing all of the time and becoming more and more uncomfortable for him so the very very sad decision was made that both of his eyes needed to be removed :( Its not a decision any of us take lightly but as Rocky had very little vision anyway and his condition was becoming increasingly painful it was the only course of action we could take for him.
After feeling a little confused and worried about what had happened to him Rocky has settled down really well and as you can see is still his happy self. He has a super super temperament and is the most loving, trusting boy bless him, he is happy to greet people and doesn’t have the usual aloofness of the shar pei. He really is a friendly and very loving lad and he soooo deserves an extra special home with people to love and care for him properly.
Rocky has been living with lots of other shar pei but since his operation a few of the other dogs saw his weakness and were picking on him so we are keen to find him a new home with another really kind, neutered laid back dog who can be his friend and help him settle. He could be homed as an only dog as long as he had someone around for most of the time.
Sadly Rocky cannot live with cats but we can consider homes with gentle respectful dog savvy children aged 8yrs and over who can understand his disability.
Rocky travels ok in the car, his recall is ok but obviously not being able to see he is safest going out on a long line. He is a really good boy in the home, housetrained, non destructive and sleeps quietly overnight.
