Special NeedsBeautiful, blind puppy looking for forever home!
Surry, neutered male, 6 months old, 32Lbs.
Surry was either abandoned very young or accidentally left motherless in the wild; with him there were three other siblings. He was the only male. All puppies, about 2.5 months old, were in extremely poor health condition, especially blind Surry, who had badly suffered from malnutrition that he got very thin hair. Months passed, Surry grew up strong and healthy, his body is covered with lovely wavy velvet brown hair, but he was defensive and friendless. Having difficulty to differentiate malice or goodwill while other puppies charging on him, Surry started to bluff and bluster by barking aloud to show his suspicions. The blind puppy shows great affection to his human but not to other puppies. He was always standing aside, 'hearing” others play.
Everything has changed, however, since the day the 'Beauty' and the 'Beast' met each other. At first, they avoided each other: Surry by growling and chasing, and Scarlett by sheltering herself in a crate. For many days, I had been trying to crate training Scarlett but in vain, nonetheless, Surry helped to accomplish it within ten minutes. When Scarlett came out of her crate and offered her favorite toy, a teddy bear, to Surry and invited him to play with her, I was totally overwhelmed by their new friendship. Since that day, they have become best friends. The beautiful girl leads her blind friend to explore everywhere in the house; while Surry , the grumpy boy follows his new friend searching high and low by smelling and tracing her position for guidance. So fortunate they have each other for companies! Inspired, I then pair them as 'Beauty and the Beast', hoping their friendship can last as long as possible!
