Volunteer rescue coordinators with Northwest Indiana Death Row Dogs are pleading for help with an elderly Jack Russell terrier who has been living in a shelter for a year.
The 12-year-old dog named "Pac Man," was first located at an animal control which planned to euthanize him after determining that he was food aggressive. Before that happened, Pac Man was taken in at Griffith Animal Control - an agency which planned to help work with his issues.
It was at the second shelter where Pac Man's blindness was discovered. The advocates who are hoping to see this senior dog leave the facility has written the following information:
Unfortunately, soon after arriving they realized that he was almost completely blind and the shelter environment scared him. Between the noise and so many different people handling him, he hasn't been able to make very much progress.
He does well with the workers that take a minute to talk to him and let him know what's happening but he really needs a foster home to give him some stability. Can you please find a place for this little boy so he can have a family of his own before it's too late...
Pac Man needs to leave the frightening shelter environment and go to a dog-savvy foster home who can help him learn that he is going to be safe. Pac Man is in need of someone who is willing to give him a chance.
Please take a moment to network this information for Pac Man - help him find a foster home where he will be safe.
