Loving home needed for blind collie Oscar

Staff at Blue Cross Suffolk are looking for a special home for blind border collie Oscar.
Oscar, who is nearly four years old, was brought into the pet charity’s rehoming centre in Wherstead by his previous owner, as they could no longer look after him and wanted him to find a loving new home.
Staff at the centre on Bourne Hill are now looking for a new owner for Oscar, preferably someone with experience of caring for a blind pet. It’s thought the dog was born blind due to congenital cataracts.
Karina Grimwade, centre manager at Blue Cross Suffolk, said: “Oscar is such a sweetheart, and a real snuggle monster. The blindness does not stop him from living life to the full and running around without a care in the world as it’s all he has known since birth.
“He’s such a friendly dog who loves a good fuss and a cuddle. Blind pets just need a bit of time to settle into their new surroundings and to get used to the layout of their new home. W
You may also want to watch:
“We advise owners to keep household furniture and the pet’s possessions, such as their water bowl, in the same place so that the pet dog or cat can build up a mental map of their new home. A secure garden is also a must.”
If you think you could offer Oscar a loving new home, visit the Blue Cross website or contact Blue Cross Suffolk on 0300 7771480.
