This is Zoe. Zoe’s conditions include uveodermatologic syndrome and sebaceous adenitis, which causes blindness and sensitivity to sunlight. She is an incredible dog with an amazing story.
Zoe get’s to wear fancy eyewear whenever she goes out for a walk and can only go for walkies in the early morning hours or after the sun has set. Her eyes are so sensitive.
Sadly, due to her conditions, Zoe needs special medication for the rest of her life… this is the kind of care that would only be suitable for one kind of person to deal with.
Zoe, heartbreakingly was left at an animal sanctuary after her previous owner fell terminally ill.
Her previous owner knew exactly how to look after Zoey, and when they fell ill, the family couldn’t handle Zoe’s needs and she was left neglected, without medication and in a terrible state when she was handed over, along with her brother.
All this dog needs is someone to love her.
The not-for-profit Saving Huey Foundation in the USA, is offering a lifetime supply of medication to anyone willing to adopt Zoey for life, to say thank you for willing to look after the pooch.
The Foundation’s owner Tracy Lystra said:
“Zoey is a very loving dog, although she has a lot of health conditions, we hope that there’s a family out there who will be able to commit to giving her the life she deserves.”
“We will cover her medical costs for life, and the doggles are of course thrown in with any adoptee willing to help! She wears doggles to help protect the pigment around her eyes.”
“Zoey has rehabbed around other dogs, including puppies and has done remarkably well.
“She is crate trained and lets her foster parents know when she has to use the restroom.
“Zoey loves toys and loves to play tug of war with other dogs or her human.
“She doesn’t get to go outside much because of her conditions, but she loves it, so the ‘doggles’ really do afford her the freedom she deserves, she’s a very loving dog.”
“We understand that adopting a dog with Zoey’s condition is going to take a special person as well as a special commitment.”
