Russell, who is blind and deaf, was hit by a car in Baltimore City and a good Samaritan took him to the local shelter. No owner came forward to claim him so the shelter contacted us to help him. We are happy to report that Russell has no broken bones but does have arthritis. Our vet feels that he has no vision at all. He can hear a little if you raise your voice! He will need a quiet home where he can have a comfy cozy bed. Another small senior dog who likes to lay with other dogs (as shown I the picture) is a must for him. Also, a fenced yard is a must so he can't wander off again. He is an easy to handle sweet boy. He will need a lot of patience as he settles in to his new home. It's not easy being an old blind almost deaf dog and having to make changes. Won't you consider adding Russell to your family? ***Applicants must be willing to drive to Ellicott City, Maryland (10 miles south of Baltimore) to meet and adopt Russell.****
