    Sweetie, Blind Jack Russell Terrier, DOB 03.12 – Hailsham, East Sussex

    Homing requirements: Sweetie needs a family who identify with her special needs as a blind puppy. She needs guidance with touch, voice tone and direction. Above all her owners will need to anticipate any dangers for her within and outside of her home environment. She can fall into spinning as a self stimulation mannerism either when excited, bored etc. Her spinning lessens the more she is occupied and settled. Ideally to live with another receptive dog who will relate to her puppy advances and provide a focus on her walks.

    Video: Sweetie our little blind puppy feels and hears her way on her walk

    Her Story: Sweetie was 'handed in' as 'found'. The dog warden was convinced it was her owner. Sweetie obviously couldn't go into kennels as this would be especially disturbing for her so he took her home overnight awaiting our research for an emergency foster place. Sweetie is now in a foster place with another dog who is proving tolerant of her and they are playing together. Fostered in East Sussex.

    Advert: Sweetie is a puppy who is trying to make her way in life without or with very little sight. She accepts guidance and tutoring really well. She is intelligent and keenly attuned to sound and touch to support her engagement in acceptable and meaningful activity. Sweetie is housetrained providing she has easy and regular access to a garden. She needs a quiet household where she can learn to orientate herself and needs another dog ideally who is receptive and supportive of her company.

    Sweetie is a young smooth haired Jack Russell with all the 'fun of a Jack puppy’ but with a bit of confusion in engaging in new situations, learning what is acceptable in her situation and expected of her. She walks well on an extender with her leader being her eyes and ensuring she doesn’t hurt herself on bracken, or stumble into the road, objects and ensuring she is received well if she enters another dog’s space. Sweetie loves her cuddles. She seeks and needs a lot of reassurance as life is especially challenging for her but she is learning to trust and move forwards with confidence.

    Please visit Sweetie’s thread on our forum: Rescue Remedies.myfastforum.org :: Sweetie Blind JRT DOB 03.12 Hailsham Foster to find out if she is still available and for fuller details.

    Lovely to see Sweetie again at our Fun Day on Saturday and all dressed up in a pretty pink harness and a diamante bling collar no less! An absolute treasure and a little princess of a dog!

    Sweetie is still in her foster home and is very well settled. She is still available for adoption.
