Adopting a Special Needs Dog May Turn Out To Be More Special Than You Thought
Why you shouldn't automatically shy away from a differently abled dog at the shelter.
Jane Derosiers of Weymouth, Massachuetts, usually avoids the busy front entrance of her local dog park. It's not that she minds the rollicking meet-up of dogs glad to see each other for their nightly romp, accompanied by their biscuit-toting parents. It's because her double merle, Lawson, is blind and cannot easily navigate the many barks and bumps of their greetings. Thatís why Ms. Derosiers enters by the quieter side entrance, where fewer dogs make the raucous hellos more manageable.
