Mickey is a sweet 9 year old little boy.. he it’s pretty easy going… Very sweet and loving… Unfortunately He is mostly blind but he can see shadows and gets around really well…He does need a bit of work on his house training but he’s coming along very nicely.
He does bark to go outside, so as long as we are quick about it he doesn’t go inside. We think if he goes to a home, where he learned where to go outside and where to bark, it would be easy for him. He maneuvers seemlessly. It’s hard to believe he is blind. The only indication is he doesn’t respond to a hand near his face, except to sniff the air in acknowledgement that something is near
He walks on leash very well for a good distance. We do slow down & say “up” “down” when coming to curbs… He also knows where the furniture is and how to get up and down on his own.. So not seeing doesn’t seem to hinder him at all. He’s a super smart little boy..
He is used to having someone with him all the time so he does need a home where he isn’t left much as he does get pretty stressed when left… He loves his walks every day and is great onleash…
