“Her condition doesn’t phase her – she’s a happy, outgoing girl.”
That’s what staff at Cork Dog Action Welfare (DAWG) have to say about Dora, a three-year-old cocker spaniel they are desperately trying to home.
Saved from a life of breeding, a vet discovered that Dora is going blind. She has degenerative retina atrophy, a condition that sadly cannot be reversed or corrected.
While her vision isn’t great, it doesn’t stop her from enjoying life to the max – Dora loves nothing better than playing with her toys.
Now all she needs is a family to share them with.
She’s been adjusting to being looked after in kennels for the past few weeks but the shelter staff are hopeful Dora will find a forever home soon so she will have time to settle in before she loses her sight completely.
Dora would be best as the only pet in the home, with children over 10 years.
