IF YOU CALLED ABOUT CARSON AND LEFT A PHONE NUMBER .... IT WAS GARBLED AND I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO GET BACK TO YOU. PLEASE CALL AGAIN, OR EMAIL US. WE WOULD LOVE TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT HAVE.
Is this a face to love, or what !! Carson is a handsome little Pekingese boy, about 5 years old.
Carson was brought into rescue from an area shelter. In the noise and fear at the shelter he nipped at a shelter worker, so he could not be adopted from there. We have found that Carson is blind in his left eye from an untreated ulcer (most likely). If approached from his blind side in unfamiliar surroundings he may have attempted to protect himself. Since he came to rescue he has made no attempt to nip anyone.
Carson had some hair loss from being flea infested. He is now flea free and all bathed and groomed. Looking good. It is believed that with good nutrition and basic grooming he will once again have a glorious coat.
Carson has been neutered for many years. He has had all his vaccinations and has been checked for heartworm (which was negative). He is currently receiving drops in his blind eye to relieve irritation. It is unknown at this time whether this will be long term. However, the drops are very inexpensive. It will take some time to determine if the folds under his eyes are creating irritation. If that is the case, his folds can be surgically decreased.
Carson is social enough with the other dogs and cats in rescue. He can can be cranky if he thinks they are thinking about crawling into bed with him - he sleeps alone .... unless it's his idea. He will crawl in with Vinnie on occasion. He is just fine with the cats. He is fairly timid around people, but cautiously coming out of his shell. He seems to identify with our bashful boy, Vinnie. Carson is house trained and uses the doggie door faithfully.
K9HAVEN Rescue requires an adoption application, references and a home visit prior to adoption. We prefer a home with no small children due to the blindness in his one eye. His adoption fee will be partially determined by his vetting expenses.
If you can't adopt at this time, maybe you would like to sponsor Carson during his stay in rescue. On PetFinder, please click on the 'Sponsor' tab at the top of the page.
