Young female border collie
Firefox is a super sweet little (30 pounds) girl who loves people. She is active and energetic and loves to play fetch and swim. She gets along with other dogs, although it took her a little while to figure out what were appropriate behaviors and what weren't. She's a good student, though, and continues to learn. Firefox is special needs because she is going blind. Currently, she has little to no vision in her right eye, and diminished vision in her left. Her vision will continue to deteriorate until she is completely blind. This is caused by her retina degenerating. It is *not* a painful condition, but there is no treatment or cure. Because the vision loss is fairly gradual, she will be able to adjust very well. In fact, most blind dogs are so well adapted to their disability, people don't even realize they are blind. Firefox is being fostered in southern VT for New England Border Collie Rescue.
