One day I was simply "driven" to look at the JRTs on Petfinder.....and after a few pages I saw a cute young JR boy looking up; but, not at the camera. It seems his "owners" had turned him into a High Kill Shelter to be euthanized with a note saying he was "too near sighted to be good for anything". Well, Hootie came to live with me and I took him to the Vet to have his eyes checked, got an Opthamalogist friend to refract his eyes for a prescription. Now Hootie enjoys seeing clearly through his "prescription Doggles", chasing his basketball and living with my other Rescue Russels, a dog that "came with the farm" and a rescue Cat. Hootie sleeps next to me and is a WONDERFUL dog in every way.....and I think he is good for EVERYTHING! Thanks to a marvelous Volunteer in that shelter who took him to a Foster Hootie has a chance to be happy AND "see"......
