Adoptable Dobie of the week is special girl, Perdita.
Location: Dobies and Little Paws Rescue in Fillmore, California.
Age: 5 - 6 years old
Story: Perdita came into a rescue as a stray. It is hard to believe she simply got out of her yard considering how docile she is and that she is mostly blind. Her eyes were the first thing the rescue noticed and she was taken straight to the vet to have them checked out. It turns out that the white is all old scarring from some kind of horrible trauma. It is unknown for sure if it was a burn or something else but it is permanent. She cannot see through the white areas so the vision directly in front of her is non-existent. However, she can see peripherally where there isn't scarring so she isn't 100% blind. Despite her horrible fortune, Perdita is one of the sweetest dogs out there.
Temperament: She is full of love, very social, and gentle. However, she needs someone patient who can help her when she's nervous about her lack of sight and can give her a very reliable home that isn't constantly changing. She is quiet and lives with other dogs but she has also clearly been beat up in her life, possibly because she ran into the wrong dog at the wrong time, so she needs really friendly doggie friends that won't overwhelm or hurt her.
Perdita is a special girl and she needs a special home where she can truly be appreciated.
