Rolling Dog Ranch in Ovando, MT has many blind dogs who have an excellent quality of life. I'm sorry the potential owners backed out on this little dog, but I'm sure she'll get her forever home soon.

It is amazing how animals can cope with disabilities. I have heard of horses that are blind that can still do everything because they trust their riders. I sent an email to the shelter to see whatever happened to her. I will post it if I find out.

Too bad so many people want the "perfect" pet. Sounds like this one is a charmer and hopefully is in a wonderful home by now.

When I was growing up, my mother adopted a Karin terrier that was to be pts. They had a great relationship, the dog would follow my mother's voice, and they got along well together. I still remember both of them in the garden having a fun time with each other. The right home will come by for this dog.

Our family dog that I adored growing up, as she was in her late teens, went blind. She still got around ok and listened to our voices. I do agree it is amazing how they adapt. Just because she aged and could not see was not a reason to love her any less.

These little dogs don't know they're little. Probably doesn't have a problem with the blindness either. They are a never give up kind of spirit dog.

In my experience with working with a shelter she will definiitely get a good home. And after this article she will have no problem. I know that by now she must be in a good home. I had a older dog that went blind and it was not a problem for the most part.

Animals actually adapt quite well to changes in their sight, hearing, having 3 legs or 4, and don't react the way humans do when something happens drastically to change their life. Emily will definitely find a loving home. Just because there might seem to be a handicapped ANIMAL that one is looking at, the only one handicapped is the person seeing the handicap! Love will prevail! Let's all send positive thoughts to
Emily and the special family just waiting to find her!!!!

I watched an episode of Animal Cops with a blind dog. Their other senses are really heightened (just like people) when they lose the ability to see. This dog ran around in the yard with the other dogs as if she could see and was able to find her away around by smell. I think it would take a special person to adopt a special needs dog and would be so rewarding.

This dog definately deserves a loving, caring home. I am so glad she was not put down due to her disability. Thank you to Animal Alliance & Best Friends Animal shelter. I pray that Emily will get the perfect forever home that will keep her save & provide the love she needs. Keep up the good work!

I've had three blind dogs over the years and they're simply amazing! They quickly learn their way around in new surroundings, they're loving beyond compare, I'd adopt another blind dog in a heartbeat. So glad that Emily has found a loving home.
