Friends, meet Roo. Roo is an 18 month old standard parti poodle who is blind and deaf. What many would see as an impairment has not slowed Roo down! He still loves to play, go on walks and show affection to humans. Roo gets along great with other dogs, and walks well on a leash. Roo does like to mouth at your hands but only because he gets excited.
Roo is one of many reasons that Carolina Poodle Rescue believes all lives matter. He's very gentle when he takes treats. And although he is blind and deaf he is very upbeat. As soon as you put the lead on him he knows when we get outside. He loves to run with a human, most especially in the big open fields that are part of Dreamweaver Farms. Roo has a lot of trust knowing that his handler won't let him run into things. He loves to play with toys and tug.
Dogs are born every day with medical issues. Dogs like Roo have a lot of life to give. They can have a good quality of life in the right environments and right homes. Roo is a sweetheart who deserves a family of his own. He will need someone that understands dogs like Roo that have physical limitations when it comes to poor eye sight and hearing.
On May 19th, Beans and I will be running to raise funds for Luna's Legacy Beans is one of the lucky ones... a standard poodle in good health. He can run this race and complete the obstacles without an impairment. Beans and I are running to ensure that Carolina Poodle Rescue never has to say no to a medical need for one of our dogs.
