Good Samaritan Rescued Blind Puppy From Stream

A California rescue group has taken in a young German shepherd puppy who was recently rescued from a stream in Tijuana, Mexico. According to Maria Dales, director of German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County (GSROC), the six-to-seven-week-old puppy, dubbed Banjo, is blind and small for his age, and it is believed that he was purposefully discarded.

Dales tells Animal Victory:

He is extremely small for his age, so we suspect that he was the runt that someone mercilessly discarded because he is not “perfect.”


Adding:

I just keep imagining him sitting there, drenched, in a stream and not knowing where to put his paw because his world is sheer darkness.

The puppy has Microphthalmia, a congenital defect, and the rescue group hopes to get him into a specialist to see if anything can be done for him. They are also hoping to find a forever home for the pup with someone who is familiar with the needs of visually impaired dogs.

If you live in or near Orange County, California, and are interested in becoming a foster parent to a homeless dog, please visit the website for German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County.

Note: GSROC pays for all approved vet and food expenses; foster provides love and security.

  3. I just finished reading this story about this sweet little baby, I can’t believe all because this little guy, has special needs that they had to just oh going to throw him away because no one is going to want a small tiny puppy 🐶??? I can’t believe that what is wrong with people???? The abuse against animals needs to stop 🛑 for example my kitty 🐈 cat lily is her name she was the runt of litter she was abandoned by her kitty 🐈 cat mama and then a family found her, and then they had to move and decided because they could not keep her that they would let the SPCA come and get her they were going to leave her in a cat carrier overnight and until she was picked up and I said to my friend no you can’t do that, she can’t be left in a carrier like that no food no water 💦 no nothing, so my mom and I took her in on 2/10/2018 just had lost my fur baby 😻 Lulu bell 🔔 17 years old a few days before taking her) in my mom and I named her lily, here’s a picture 🖼️ I can’t get the picture to load on here well anyways lily got outside and she went missing for 5 days well I found her after those 5 days and then realized that whenever I try to have my door 🚪 shut she goes absolutely crazy 😧 she doesn’t like it at all I am guessing she was locked 🔐 up in a room when she went missing for those 5 days I couldn’t find her the complex that my friend used to live in the people there wanted to hurt lily because they didn’t want a cat around anymore well they thought 🤔 hurting her would be the solution well thankfully they couldn’t hurt her because she got away from the bad people that wanted to hurt her now I honestly hope and pray 🙏 that it wasn’t what I am thinking that she was locked in a bedroom or closet or something and that she doesn’t like the door 🚪 shut and that also is the same for the bathroom door 🚪 she doesn’t like being locked 🔐 in a small room not even for a few minutes it freaks her out. I am glad that this puppy 🐶 is safe and I pray 🙏 to God 🙏 that someone is so sweet to take her in as their fur baby foster mom or family or even a forever ♾️ loving ❤️ 🏡 home where she will be safe forever ♾️❤️♾️💘 this sweet little baby needs protection and the puppy 🐕 is going to get it now for the rest of it’s life.

  4. It takes an especially pathetic human being to be so cruel to a disabled dog. May life treat you the way you treat animals.

    • Can’t agree more with that sentiment- hopefully what goes around comes around for the assholes of this world who treat animals with such disdain and utter cruelty.
