Thread: Senior, Blind, Deaf And Sick Dog Finds A Forever Home

A lot of us in this community have pets - cats, dogs, parrots, and all the animal in between. We love animals. And we have animals because we love them and want to give them the best lives they can possibly have. But how far would we really go to take care of an animal? It's not easy, even if they're young and healthy. But adopting a senior pet, a blind pet, a deaf pet, or a sick pet is whole other kind of challenge. 

And what if one pet is all of those things together? Meet Nannoo. 

Nannoo's owner has recently passed away, and her family surrendered her to Nashville Humane. The shelter attempted to give her the best life they could, but nothing can really replace a forever home. Honestly, we are not sure that we would have been able to take on the task of adopting this dog, so we are truly thankful to MrPuckett for doing it and sharing the story with the world. 

We hope this wonderful senior doggo lives a long life, as healthy as can be, getting all the pets and snacks it could want.

I had never really considered adding another dog to the family, but for some reason I couldn't stop thinking about this one MrPuckett'

When people say that opposites attract, they are talking specifically about this deaf puppy and this 2-year-old girl, we are certain of it. Never have you seen love  stronger than the love between this little human and her doggo. The connection was instantaneous and so heartwarming. For some reason, as the video says, this "girl who can't stop talking , and the guy who can't hear anything" became unlikely best friends right away.

Happily, this love was strong enough for the mom to see it and know that it was meant to be. So, what started as dog sitting for two weeks turned into this awwdorable puppy finding its forever home with an amazing, loving family. And that's all we could ever want for it.

Susie is a blind and deaf dog who loves being outside. Luckily her best buddy likes to give her rides on top of his doggie-wheelchair so she can feel the wind on her face. How sweet is that?!
