Gunner blind1-THIS DOG IS NOT BEING HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POST; PLEASE USE THE CONTACT INFORMATION BELOW TO GET MORE DETAILS-

This trouper had glaucoma and spent several months patiently getting eye drops from us before having both eyes removed.  Since Gunner was already partially blind from the glaucoma, he knows how to identify a new person by sniffing them and then he’s eager to make new friends.  He adapts to his environment remarkably quickly, racing around the play area as if his vision was perfect.  We even have a ball with bell in it that Gunner likes to play with.

Shelter volunteers say this pit bull is playful, charming, sweet, gentle … you get the idea. He’s a strong boy and, because he is blind, he’ll need a fully fenced yard.  At about four years old, Gunner has plenty of loving years to spend with a special person (and he’s okay with cats).
