Help Blind And Terrified 5-Month-Old Goldendoodle Get Treatment For Scary Head Tremors
Daphne is a fluffy five-month-old Goldendoodle who yearns to enjoy life and play with her canine friends, but poor Daphne is blind and full of fear.
Daphne was surrendered to Blind Dog Rescue Alliance from a horrific breeding environment after her visual disability prevented her from being sold by the breeder. Sadly, Daphne has never received any support for her blindness and struggles with mobility. She is anxious and confused and constantly in motion, mostly from walking in circles over and over again. In addition to being blind, Daphne is experiencing head tremors and has an ocular condition that causes her eyes to involuntary jolt back and forth, which only fills her with more stress.
Now, poor Daphne's health has worsened and doctors need to do an MRI to properly identify the cause of her neurological issues and develop a treatment plan. We are doing everything in our power to save Daphne but we cannot afford to cover the cost of her lifesaving medical care and treatment without the help of our generous supporters.
URGENT: Walker is a hound mix who started life as a loved little puppy but with an owner who did not care for another “mouth to feed." Well, turns out, Walker had been kicked downstairs and mistreated for no reason other than being a puppy. A neighbor saw this and begged the owner to give him to her, which he did (thankfully). But because she was too elderly to handle him, she kept him outside in 100+degree heat.
Poor Walker, still tried to be everyone’s friend. He wanted to be loved and played with. Another neighbor realized the danger Walker was in and with her daughter, immediately took him (the daughter gave him the name Walker because he was “tough like Walker Texas Ranger” which the daughter loved).
The Good Samaritan contacted the rescue and Walker made his way to BDRA.
It turns out, that Walker may have been blinded as a puppy by the original owner due to the abuse he suffered. So BDRA took him in and started working to get him ready for a new home and happy life. Another roadblock came Walker’s way when he had a seizure, then another, then another. As it turns out, Walker has idiopathic epilepsy (*no know trigger/source). His foster home and rescue got him treated and all seemed well until it wasn’t. Because of the years of abuse, Walker dealt with, his seizures began breaking through phenobarbital treatment, and now require additional medicine with the phenobarbital. Rescue and the foster home decided, no, he will become a “furever” foster and live out his days being spoiled, having A/C, a pool to plop in, and the comforts of a loved and wanted dog. Walker doesn’t walk well, and is on 2 medications to control his seizures, he still chews on shoes (with your foot in them), grumbles his opinions at you, and loves his kong toy, but he will never, ever go through the hell he started life with. He is Home.
Please help us give Walker the Forever he so deserves. Thank you so much everyone.
Disabled Girl Tries To Live Normal Puppy Life
Poor Elly is a sweet young pup who WANTS to desperately be like any other normal puppy her age...but tragically her disorders hinder her from doing such things.
Elly is a 4-month-old owner surrender who had health problems and could not give her the care she needed, so they gave her up to the rescue. She was en route to her new foster home when a driver observed her health change. A local foster home was asked to pick her up and make sure she was okay. Turns out poor Elly has a neurological issue resulting in seizures, and to make matters worse, without previous proper vetting, the little marshmallow may have been exposed to distemper at some point. She doesn't function like other puppies at 4 months old; her seizures result in aggressive biting and growling and she does not know how to chew food- only licks to eat. Elly also cannot walk up or downstairs; she tumbles. She still tries to do puppy things, but her mind/body coordination won't let her...
She is thus going to be a fur-ever foster. She is thankfully in good hands and will spend her days being spoiled and loved. Rescuers plan on spaying her eventually and making sure she is monitored and medicated so that she can function as best as possible. Although she has disabilities, she deserves a happy life, and her foster family plans on giving her just that. Please consider a donation towards her basic care and spay; she would be forever grateful.
