Meet Artie

Artie is ready for his forever home! Artie is special needs, as he is completely blind. He has done so well in his foster home.

Artie is a 1 year old Australian mix who is completely blind. He is neutered, current on all vaccinations, on heartworm prevention and microchipped. Artie is a lively boy filled with curiosity about the world. He loves the sound of planes overhead and the rustle of the leaves in the wind and the feel of the sun and wind on his face. He is potty trained (but taken out quite often). He loves being in the house with his people and also running outside with his two Aussie friends. He is crate trained and rarely puts up a bark about going into the crate. He loves the contents of a full toy basket and will empty it to make sure he shares his attention with each toy. He is very smart and is learning commands.

Artie has been blind since birth but he is so eager to find his way. You would not know he's blind as he maneuvers around the house and outside. He bumps into things occasionally, but he keeps right on going. He will follow you anywhere if you have treats. He may be able to detect light and movement of shapes. We have hopes that Artie will become a very enjoyable and loved family pet, as he is not aggressive or reactive in the least and has a soft mouth when playing with toys and loves a good pet and scratch. Artie would do well with a companion dog, preferably a dog his size or larger. He is also very capable of entertaining himself with his toys and would do well as an only “child” because he loves his people and wants to be wherever they are. He needs a fenced yard so he can run and play without veering off in a wrong direction. He will need continued leash training, but should do well with time and consistency.

What Artie needs most is a loving human who is patient and can help guide him through the world and keep him safe and someone who will be dedicated to him and make him part of the family. He will love you and you will love him! He is ready for adventures. Check out Artie.

If you would like to consider making Artie a part of your family, please fill out our adoption application at the link below.

There is an additional $20 microchip fee which includes registration and transfer to his new furever family.
