THIS IS TYLER… who came to the Rancho Cucamonga Shelter with one of his eyes totally “gone” — so they removed the eye and did a wonderful job. Even though he couldn’t see out of his other eye, we thought we could save it. However, due to the glaucoma, he ruptured his other eye, and it had to be removed also.
While he has no eyes and cannot see, Tyler can see straight into your soul. He occasionally bumps into things, but he is very careful. It’s amazing how quickly he can mentally map out his current setting and know where a wall ends and another begins. He can even go up and down stairs!
Nevertheless…this boy is an angel. He melts into your arms when you pick him up and gives you kisses to say “thank you for loving me even though I’m not in perfect shape!” He is so trusting now that he has received so much love…. that he loves to be picked up and will fall asleep in your arms. His temperament would make him an excellent candidate for a therapy dog.
Tyler is 7 yrs old and about 14 lbs. He is a Lhasa mix… maybe with some poodle. All we can tell you beyond that is that he is a wonderful dog and will be a great companion to someone with our without dogs…. someone who will love his imperfection like we all do.
