Meet Tryston

Tryston is a beautiful black tri Australian Shepherd, approximately two years old, house trained, knows basic commands and gets along with other dogs. Unlike most of our dogs who are born blind as a result of merle to merle (color pattern) breeding, Tryston was not born blind! It is harder for dogs who have had their eyesight, then lose it whereas pups born without, never know there is anything wrong. We knew it wasn't age related either as Tryston is still very young. We took him to our Ophthalmologist hoping there was a corrective procedure. Instead, we learned that Tryston's blindness is irreversible and a result of a systemic infection, such as distemper. Just like all the deaf and blind double merle's we see, his blindness was totally preventable with inexpensive vaccinations that protect our loved ones from these harmful illnesses! Tryston's former owner failed him in almost every way possible!

When we pulled Tryston from a rural shelter in Missouri, he was scared, a skeleton full of intestinal worms, his fur smelly and matted and, of course, he was not neutered. He spent months enduring the dreadful heartworm treatment, which is also preventable! Tryston has had a horrible first couple years of life but his blindness is not going to prevent him from finding a home who will love and care for him forever and always, as he so deserves! Tryston now has has a clean bill of health and looking for the perfect family.

He is also neutered, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, and current on flea and heartworm preventatives. Tryston navigates his surroundings extraordinarily well and memorizes them quickly. It does takes a little while for him to warm up but once he does he gives lots of love and kisses. Tryston will need a dog-savvy owner, one that give him love and patience that he deserves. Tryston will do best in a home without children under 12 and will also need a visible fence.
