Last November, 108 dogs were rescued from the biggest suspected dogfighting operation in Michigan and among them was a blind dog chained outside with just a broken-down dog house for sanctuary.
Bark Nation, an animal welfare company based in Detroit with a goal to finish dogfighting and rescue lives, saved all the dogs with the help of government and state law enforcement.
The dogs were analyzed by a veterinarian who identified the wonderful boy, who was clearly blind, most likely lost his eyesight due to trauma endured in dogfighting.
Jessica Brown, Supervisor of Operations at Bark Nation, informed us, “We can not think of just how terrible it must have been for him, to live outside, not secured by the elements, and be fully blind.”
He was called “Turkey Jerky Snack” (also known as the KING) and rapidly won the hearts of staff and volunteers.
Turkey is adjusting to shelter life but would love to locate a forever home. He is placing his terrible past behind him and is ready to enjoy somebody unconditionally. Getting around a new location is difficult and frightening when you can not see, so Turkey has his very own unique wagon that he rides in to go outdoors every day.
He is looking for someone to cuddle with, so all film and TV junkies please apply. This sweet fella requires a loving home and a soft sofa to lounge on. He’s totally blind– but so is love. He still enjoys journeys like going to the park, however, his favorite place to be is by your side. Cuddling up and seeing films with some tasty, dog-friendly snacks is his perfect day.
” He’ll gladly have a Disney movie marathon, eat cheese pizza, and snuggle his people all day on the sofa,”stated the sanctuary
There’s never ever a boring moment with Turkey …
While he waits for his person, he is being spoiled with treats and just lately won an award at the sanctuary’s “Bark-ademy Honors”. Turkey was named Best Actor. The shelter composed, “The Bark-ademy Award winner for Best Actor melts the hearts of everybody he meets. He is wonderful and silly and keeps everyone on their toes! Our winner is hoping that his newfound fame and glory would certainly bring him closer to adoption. He has actually enjoyed having fun with another canine in our sanctuary and may enjoy a canine friend. He is completely blind and 100% perfection.”
Turkey needs a fenced-in backyard and a client household who will certainly help him adjust to his new environments. He can possibly live with one more canine, but he will certainly need slow-moving intros which the shelter team is happy to help organize and assist with.
