Meet Dorito! This little nacho cheese colored fella was a stray pulled from a shelter. Little Dorito was severely thin & matted, as well as vision impaired. Here is an update from his foster mom:
Dorito, whom we call Dory is a terrific little guy. He has put on some weight since coming to stay with us and is no longer skin and bones. He is a handsome reddish/brown/gold color and very soft. His favorite thing is to be with you. He will lay in your lap as long as you will let him. He likes ear rubs and belly rubs, a soft doggie bed and good things to eat. He is not a big kisser, but every now and then you will get a little kiss or a little swipe of the tongue.
He doesn't seem to know what toys are for, so doesn't play with them. He doesn't bother anything else in the house either. While he has vision issues, he is happy and loving as can be. He goes in and out to potty, navigates stairs and gets around with no real problems. He does bump into things occasionally, but it doesn't seem to bother him. He goes out and goes around the yard sniffing things, and the way he holds his head up, you wouldn't realize he has vision issues. If he gets a little stuck trying to figure his way around, we have found that lightly clapping your hands gives him a distinct focus to get himself out of a jam. He is also crate trained.
This is a guy that would be great in a home with older kids or adults only. I would not recommend him if you have stability problems as he stays right with you, so you need to be aware of where you are walking. He is NOT aggressive, and the only concern with smaller children is that they could startle him or fall over him as he doesn't realize how close he is or that he should move over. He is a sweet little guy that is looking for that special family to shower his love on and receive it in return. He doesn't play fetch, but he will walk with you (not at a real fast pace as he loves to sniff) and be absolutely loyal and grateful for the love and kindness of a forever home.
His adoption fee is just $200.
