Churros

Ola! I’m Churros and I’m a very special boy looking for a very special home. My eyesight isn’t the best you see – the dogtor says I have something called ‘bilateral retinal degeneration’… I don’t know what all those words mean, I just know that I’m nearly blind and I was born like this so it’s all I’ve known, really.

Now, on to the positives – my eyesight certainly doesn’t bother me, so it shouldn’t bother you (but I still need an extra special home*)! It just means that I’m an extra good listener and detective with my sleuthy snoot! Speaking of my sleuthy snoot, I love enrichment activities where I get to sniff out treats hidden in toys and boxes… I’d love it if my new home would take the time to engage my keen nose to figure out these puzzles.

Just because I’m blind doesn’t mean I’m slow going – because I’m very young I’m still pretty active… I love to play and use my smarts. I’d really love a family that can keep up with me!

So I can live my best life, I’m thinking maybe a smaller house with a yard is best for me. Oh, and I think I’ve left out the best part – I forgot to tell you that I’m also the sweetest, happiest boy you’ll ever meet!!

*It’s very important that I find a smaller home without stairs so I can learn to find my way around quickly without too many obstacles but it would be ideal if it also had a yard for me. My new family should be experienced dog owners, even better if you’ve had a greyhound before! And I’d do best without any distractions like living in a busy area, other pets or kids.

*I’d do best as a solo hound. It’s not that I don’t like other dogs, but my eye condition means I often have my eyes wide open to let as much light in as I can, and other dogs can sometimes misinterpret this. I don’t mean it that way, of course!
