When a dog has a disability, it becomes hard to find an accepting home for the dog. Just as hard, finding a home that wants both a dog and her two children seems hard. As one can imagine, it would be so hard to find a home for a family of three blind dogs.
However, Lindsay Devers claims the decision for her was an easy one.
When she saw this family of blind dogs, she fell in love with all three of them: mother, Bella; son, Bear; and daughter, Tres.
“On April 20, 2015, my husband and I made one of the best decisions of our lives when we welcomed a family of three blind heelers into our hearts and home,”Denvers’ gofundme page says. “After purchasing our home we wanted to expand our family with rescue dogs. After looking on the SPCA website we just knew there was something special about Bella, Bear, and Tres.”
Prior to Denver’s, The Nevada Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals found it difficult to place the “Three Blind Angels.” The dogs lived in the shelter for nearly a year.
“As of yesterday, Bella, the Matriarch of our lovable fur family, was taken to the vet with a very infected right eye that seemed to appear almost overnight. After a series of tests, it was concluded that Bella was suffering from increased ocular pressure and the only option to alleviate Bella’s pain is to have the eye surgically removed. Since her other eye is also at risk, it was decided to have both of her eyes surgically removed.”
The surgery costing $715, Denver’s reached out for donations to help fund the cost. People seemed more than happy to help.
