Blind Dog Gets Around with Help from Friend

A dog named Blue Dozer, a pit bull, was surrendered to the Richmond Animal Care and Control (RACC). By his side was a little blind dog named OJ, a dachshund. Blue, who is six years old, is a constant companion to OJ, who is twelve. The pair found themselves in the shelter recently because their owner became homeless and could no longer care for them. When she surrendered the dogs, she insisted they stay together because the dogs were so bonded. Blue acts as a seeing eye dog for OJ, who is blind and cannot see much more than a few shadows. There was no doubt that Blue and OJ were bonded and the story was posted on social media and they were quickly adopted after a few days at the shelter.

After being adopted by a family who drove nearly two hours to adopt the dogs, something terrible happened. OJ was found wandering the streets alone and it is believed the dog’s new owner dumped him. Luckily for the blind little dog, a good Samaritan rescued him from the road and took him to the Shenandoah Valley Animal Services Center. They scanned his microchip and it led OJ back to RACC. The staff then contacted the adopter and got Blue the dog back so the pair could be reunited. Though the family was screened, sometimes the unthinkable happens to dogs like OJ who has special needs.

J and Blue are now safe back at the RACC and staff is working to find them a new home together. The staff says the pair are so happy together and spend every moment by one another’s side. They will continue to work to find an ideal home for both dogs, as it is so important for them to stay together in a new home!
