Eric is a blind dog. He prefers to explore on his own than to be led on a leash. He walks slowly and carefully, tapping his feet as a blind person might tap a cane. He was picked up stray on a night when the temperature was -4 degrees and with the windchill was -35. He has a sweet nature and is non-reactive to other dogs. His skin feels like velvet. He loves ear rubs. At the shelter he was a quiet dog who slept when it wasn't mealtime. He has a significant gait issue due to right shoulder pain and deformity; he has muscle loss in the right shoulder and must use his head to life his right leg (swings his head to the left so that his right paw comes off the ground). This may be due to an old injury. He is afraid of thunderstorms but responds well with calming agents such as L-Tryptophan. Eric likes to snuggle and actually does not like to sleep alone; he will want to be in bed with you, or sleep with another dog. Adoption fees are $200 unless otherwise stated. Senior residents of Dot's Old Dogs Home are generally not available for adoption. 100% of adoption fees are put back into the rescue so that another lonely and neglected chained/penned dog or yard-sale dog can be rescued. We are grateful for your interest.

Upon approval, the adoption fee is non-refundable. The fee includes the following: de-worming; grooming (if applicable); heartworm, lymes, ehrlichia and anaplasmosis testing; all vaccinations including rabies; flea and tick treatment, microchipping and spay/neuter.

Please contact us if you have questions about our adoptable dogs, we would love to talk to you!
