It must be tough to be dealt with two tragedies in life – suffer total blindness and having no home at all – most particularly if you are a little dog.
Lolly is a homeless pooch suffering from chronic glaucoma. She was living in the streets in suburban Burton, Adelaide, Australia. Because of her eye disease, she has gone completely blind, and her eyes looked as if it would burst. It was surely very difficult for her to be roaming the streets under that condition.
Two years ago, when the Royal Society of Prevention of Cruelty to Animals or RSPCA came to Lolly, they immediately brought her to the vet eye specialist. The vet decided to remove her eyes as the best solution to ease her pain and suffering; otherwise, her eyeballs would burst.
Luckily, she recovered from the operation. While she was at the RSPCA, one of the officers named Brigitte decided to adopt her and give her a home. She was able to bond with the puppy and took pity on her. Brigitte saw that Lolly, despite her condition, is a happy pup and full of life.
After 18 months, another wandering, blind and homeless doggie was found by the RSPCA. Her eyes also needed to be removed as it was already rotting away. The dog, which was named Sugar, was also an insecure dog.
Eventually, Sugar also became blind after the vet removed her already wasted eyes. Again, Brigitte took pity on the dog and saw that her case was the same as Lolly’s. Since she already had one blind dog, she decided to adopt another altogether.
Since their meeting, Lolly and Sugar became very comfortable with each other. They developed a friendship that only two blind dogs can have. They are now both sweet dogs and very happy and comfortable, having found a safe and loving home.
By the way, Sugar’s former owner was found guilty for animal neglect by the court and fined $3,000 (approx. US$2,180). He was banned from owning another animal.
