Blind dog saved from busy roadway has now lived for months at shelter

Six months ago, a blind, deaf dog was saved by a good Samaritan who saw him running on a busy highway in Long Island, N.Y.

Today, the dog who miraculously managed to skirt death remains unclaimed and homeless behind the bars of a kennel run at the Brookhaven Shelter. The young dog, named "Ace," was featured here in the National Dog News column a month ago - though there have been dozens of inquiries, nobody has rescued, or adopted him from the facility.

On Wednesday morning, Ace was scheduled for a meet and greet with a prospective adopter, but that person did not show up - in fact, they did not even call to cancel the meeting.

Ace is only a year-and-a-half old and he has been impounded for six third of his life has been spent behind bars. Though volunteers describe this handsome, well-rounded dog as "perfect," and "flawless," he still does not have a family of his own.

Ace's time without a home, and a family, has continued for too long already - he needs and deserves to be in a home with someone who will appreciate him for the fabulous dog that he is.
