Most people claim to take care of their pets, including feeding them, giving them a place to sleep, and taking care of their medical needs. However, sometimes we hear about individuals who fall short of this mark, like in the case of Louis. Louis is a three-year-old Labrador and shepherd mix who was taken to the Helen Woodward Animal Center in Rancho Santa Fe, California. His former owners had given him up because they had his eyes removed instead of treating an infection, and they could not handle having a blind pet. Soon after the operation, Louis was taken to a pound in Calexico, where he was rescued by one of Helen Woodward’s partners. When Louis arrived at the animal center, he was not only blind but also nervous and injured from being hit by a car. The director of Helen Woodward Animal Center Adoptions, Hella Tyler, emphasizes the responsibility that comes with owning a pet and the importance of realizing that pets require monthly expenses and medical care. Fortunately, Louis has been taken in by a loving foster family and is adjusting to his new life without eyes and with a limp. Helen Woodward is currently searching for a forever home for Louis, but interested parties must live in a one-story home and preferably work from home as well.
Tyler thinks that Louis is an exceptional dog despite his previous family neglecting him. Louis enjoys being around humans, despite his past experiences. To give Louis a permanent home, Helen Woodward is offering a free training session, tasty treats, and dog food to the family who takes him in.
