Blind and partially-sighted dogs abused by old owners desperately need new homes

Getting a new dog is an exciting time, whether that’s a puppy or a rescue, you're adding a super-cute new member to your family.

And while puppies might be adorable, they are hard work and require a lot of training.

But while adopting a rescue dog is still a huge commitment, you quite often miss out on that puppy stage and can adopt a dog who's already been trained.

Plus, you’ll be giving a dog a second chance at life and a second chance at happiness.

Blind Dog Rescue UKis a small charity working to rehome blind and partially-sighted dogs. The dogs in its care are victims of abuse, neglect, disease or trauma, many of which have come from overseas.

The charity also rescues dogs from the UK. Many of them are unwanted by their owners or threatened with euthanasia without being given the chance to show the joy they can bring and the relatively normal lives they can lead.

Adoption fees vary but include travel to the UK, their vaccinations, pet passport, microchip and all preparation for travel. They also come with five weeks of free insurance.

Blind Dog Rescue UKdo not currently rehome dogs to families with children under the age of 10.

Do you think you could give one of these dogs a new and loving home?

Bruno

Handsome Bruno is just a youngster, believed to be less than a year old. This beautiful pup is totally blind and was found on the streets before being taken to safety.

He’s a happy boy who has learned to walk nicely on a lead and he gets on well with other dogs. He’d love a home with a garden and can live with another dog for company.

Bono

Partially-sighted Bono is a senior dog desperately looking for his forever home. He was rescued from a shelter in Romania and is a friendly boy with a lot of love to give.

He gets on well with people and other dogs and has formed quite the bond with Maja, so it would be nice for them to be rehomed together.

He doesn’t get on so well with black dogs, but apart from that, he is a friendly chap.
