Do you know anyone who can give a forever home to this adorable dog who has endured a difficult life?
Stevie, an 8-year-old dog, was found locked up with another dog and was likely chained up for most, if not all, of his life. The Lancaster SPCA took in the puppy and cared for him before sending him to Diamonds in the Ruff in New York.
Diamonds in the Ruff Animal Rescue is a volunteer-run and foster-based organization that primarily serves the counties of Niagara and Erie. Founded in 2011, the organization’s primary goal is to help reduce the number of animals being euthanized.
Organizations like Diamonds in the Ruff have helped to facilitate the adoption of 3.2 million animals from shelters across the United States every year.
Despite being completely blind, Stevie also had heartworms, bald patches, and fleas. The small dog had digestive problems, according to further investigation. Not only is medical attention required, but it is also urgent.
An obstruction caused by a corn cob in Stevie’s intestines required immediate surgery. Due to these issues, Stevie’s foster family had to be understanding and encouraging as he adapted to his new life. The dog’s true personality started to show as he recovered and adjusted to his new surroundings.
As the dog started to come out of his shell, Stevie’s foster family enjoyed seeing some of his “firsts” that he missed out on. Stevie finally received his very own bed, which was luxuriously comfortable and foamy.
The dog like his new bed a lot. He often appears to be rubbing his paws on it while jumping up and down. He exclaims with joy as he jumps around in bed every night! The fact that Stevie has such a cozy place to sleep makes her ecstatic.
Erin Boyd is Stevie’s foster mother. She recently shared her admiration for Stevie’s quick change in an interview with the dodo. We are aware of how challenging it may be for a dog to suddenly find solace following years of mistreatment, but Stevie appears to be moving in the right direction.
Although blind, Stevie made up for his lack of vision with his excellent sense of smell and hearing. Stevie is looking for a home where his human family will shower him with affection. Although he would prefer to live alone, if necessary, he would accept a low-energy companion.
Stevie, who had a significant lack of love as a child, needs a family who can give him daily cuddles and attention.
Due to his heartworms, Stevie needs a driver to take him to appointments. You can fill out an application on the Ruff Diamond website if you reside in or around Lockport, New York and want to adopt this lovely dog.
