Portland, OR – Bill is a senior German shepherd who wandered into a yard…he was taken to the Multnomah County Animal shelter and listed as a “stray”…
Now he waits.
The theory is that Bill was dumped by his family – why, no one may ever know.
What is known is that Bill is a senior dog – and he is blind.
Winding up in an animal control facility is frightening on the best of days. Sitting in an unfamiliar cement kennel run – no familiar sounds, no familiar voices…nothing to provide any semblance of comfort.
Though Bill’s world has been turned upside down, the beautiful senior is described as “sweet” and “easy to handle”.
So much so that shelter staff are pleading for him to be rescued.
To be perfectly honest and realistic, the odds of Bill being adopted from this shelter are slim to none. He is ten years of age and he is blind.
Adopters do not walk into shelters looking for senior, blind dogs.
But Bill does deserve his own family – one who is better than the family that abandoned him in his Golden Years.
One who will treasure his quiet company.
One who will enjoy sitting by his side as he lounges on a soft bed.
Someone out there would love to have this beautiful senior dog by their side – that someone needs to be found and they need to be found quickly.
