    Desperate need

    This is a long shot crosspost, but here it goes...

    Subject: [ILdogrescue] Blind Bernese/GSD Male needs Help - Long Shot




    Well, I have to say I tried everything to help this poor boy, so I am poating him here. Please feel free to crosspost. There is about one week left to secure a rescue for this boy or he will be put down.

    There is a no-kill shelter north of Philadelphia that is closing its doors. Most dogs have been relocated to rescues, but one dog remains and there are no takers. "Stevie Ray" is a blind male Bernese MOutnain Dog/GSD mix. He was found over one year ago hit-by-car. His head was "smushed" somewhat (term of the erson I talked to, not my technical term ) and once they found he was blind, they presumed from the accident. A vet has recently told them he tought it was a correctable genetic problem (agan, contact didn't have details).

    He is good with other small dogs, but nervous aroudn large breed dogs, presuem due to dight loss. He is about 50-55 pounds and under two years of age. He has been at this no-kill shelter for over a year. They dont' know how he is around kids. They think he needs a home with fewer or no dogs and maybe no kids, depending on how he is.

    They are willing ot work out transport to anywhere. I know it is a longshot, but I have been reading the posts about him and hate the idea of this one lone dog that cna't be placed: he is literally the only dog at the shelter, with someone coming twice a day to feed him and let him out of his cage. One week remaining until he is put down. Contact me if you can help and I'll put you in touch with the rescue.

    Thanks.
