Blind golden oldie hoping for a second chance at love this Valentine's Day

Staff at Dogs Trust Shrewsbury are on the lookout for a special family that will open their hearts this Valentine’s Day to a fun-loving Older Age Pooch (OAP) who is in need of a loving home.

As we approach the most romantic day of the year the team are hoping that love will finally be in the air for ten-year-old Jack Russell, Tess who is blind. The lively terrier arrived at the rehoming centre last November after her owner could sadly no longer take care of her due to a change in circumstances.

Louise Campbell, Manager at Dogs Trust Shrewsbury, says:

“Tess was a much loved dog and is absolutely gorgeous but sadly she has found herself without a forever home.

“She is a sweetheart and the fact that she is blind doesn’t stand in her way of enjoying life to the full. She thoroughly enjoys a nice walk and loves to play so we are hoping that as Valentine’s Day approaches, a family who have a Tess-shaped hole in their lives will find they are her perfect match.”

Tess loves to play with her toys and particularly enjoys a game of tug, showing she still likes a challenge despite her advancing years. She is now looking for a home where she will be the only pet. She can live with older children if they have experience of living with dogs.

Louise adds:

“Tess is a real sweetheart and we are surprised that she is still waiting for her special someone. We really hope that the fact that she is blind doesn’t put people off coming to meet her. She welcomes every day, and everybody, with a very waggy tail and is simply lovely to be around.

“We are confident that if someone is looking for a sweet, older four-legged friend to join their lives it will be love at first sight when they meet Tess.”
