Sally is roughly about 8 years old and she’s a white and tan small breed pup. She was found outside of finder’s home with no collar or leash on. The finder couldn’t keep her though because his landlord doesn’t allow pets in his apartment.
Behavior during Intake:
Sally wasn’t very responsive when I approached, I approached by whistling and I didn’t get a reaction so I clapped a few twice then everything at once and thought she may have no hearing. I crouched down to pet her and she didn’t know I was there and bumped into my legs, when I pet her she flinched. I then raised her hair above her eyes and noticed they were matted shut so she has no sight either. She allowed all handing including collar and getting her picture taken.
