Sadie is a senior whose cataracts have made her mostly blind and who is very shy. Initially we anticipated that she would come out of her shell as she gained comfort.
Unfortunately, her condition has declined over the past weeks since she came to our organization. She is not suffering or in pain, but her normal age-related things have started catching up with her. She naps a lot, doesn't get around much other than to eat when her meals are brought to her and to take a restroom break when done. Mostly she likes to stay to herself in her familiar surroundings and spend time in the comfort of her bed.
Because of those changes we don't wish to move her or introduce anything into her life that might upset her or make her uncomfortable. Sadie will be a sanctuary dog, meaning she will spend the remaining time with her foster family where she is happy and comfortable until such time as she is ready to cross the rainbow bridge.
