Oh my goodness, what a sweet and beautiful dog. Sue is a petite 45# with a very beautiful red merle and white coloring which gives her a really striking look. When Sue arrived we were told she was blind. But a trip to the vet determined that while she lacked all sight in one eye, she had some sight in the other. However, the problem was that she suffered from entropion in the other eye. This is a condition in which a portion of the eyelid is inverted or folded inward and this can cause an eyelash or hair to irritate and scratch the surface of the eye. It was causing her such discomfort that she could barely open the good eye. So of course we immediately had surgery to correct the problem and she is now not only pain free but also has some limited sight!
Sue arrived with her canine buddy Malcolm but he wasn’t always as nice to her as he should have been so it was better to separate them. But she would love a canine buddy so a home with a friendly male dog would be fine. And she is great with cats (she is fostered with one). Sue honestly has no idea that she has any disability. She is joyful and lovely and would fit in almost anywhere. The only real desire we have is that her new home have a fenced yard. Her foster mom said she absolutely loves being outside running around!
Her foster mom says: Sue is extremely smart, loves running and playing in the snow (outside she is happiest-completely different dog outside), cat friendly (she pays no attention at all), walks well on leash, shy, loving, gentle. She is house broken and crate trained. In the house she just hangs out where ever you are. She will go in crate if you leave the door open otherwise will lay on her bed in living room. Has never even tried to get on the furniture. Loves treats, her fleece blanket and family breakfast time. She doesn’t know how to play with toys but she enjoys sleeping with them.
