Post out fliers and work hand-in-hand with the authorities in finding homeless animal a forever home. These animals deserve better!
Bear is a dog who didn't have it easy in life at first. When he was a year old, he and his sister were running unattended in Trenton, New Jersey.
One fateful day, he got hit by a car. Sadly, the driver drove off, leaving the poor injured Bear bleeding at a gas station.
Thankfully, he was rushed to a local animal hospital where he was attended to and his owners were called to identify him, but when they saw the terrible condition he was in, they abandoned him. Due to the operations performed, Bear became blind.
Bear was left all alone, in a world where nobody, well, almost nobody cared for him. For three days, he was all alone. He had almost given up hope until a Samaritan came to his aid.
An angelic woman who was a worker at the hospital noticed the poor pup and decided to talk to her daughter at home about adopting Bear.
Her daughter, Katie, was very ecstatic about it and decided she was going to love Bear with all she had.
After Bear had undergone the necessary treatment, she discovered Bear was a beautiful dog who wasn't going to let his disabilities hinder him from enjoying life to the fullest.
She has created an Instagram page for him called @bear.the.blind.pit. The account has over 120 thousand followers, and it shows the loving moments bear shares with his new family.
Living with a blind dog
Blinds dogs are just like other normal dogs. You don't have to feel the need to pamper and overspoil them. However, even though you should leave your blind dog navigate its way on its four paws, there are ways to make their life more comfortable:
1. Remove all dangerous objects from the household. Sharp objects, pointy edged tables, etc.;

2. Keep the house in the same order. Don’t just move things around as you please;
3. Always keep your dog’s water and food in the same location;
4. Place different textures of rugs in front of dangerous places, like stairs, to alert your dog.

All in all, always remember your dog doesn't want to feel helpless. They can still live very normal lives, and you should not deny them of that. Choose to love all creatures regardless of their species, breed or disabilities.
