Description: 
Cisco the Kid is 2-years-old and a sweetheart as long as you do not rile him. Cisco is blind from cataracts. The vet says he had to have a predisposition to cataracts when he was born. It is difficult to watch a dog with loads of ball drive not be able to play or live to his fullest potential. There is a surgery to restore his vision. It will cost about $3,400.00 and that money must be raised up front. We are hoping people will want to help this dog. He was on a chain that he broke to get free. He then stumbled blindly into a drainage ditch, where he could have easily drowned when the chain got stuck. Luckily, the local Fire Department pulled him out. A good Samaritan took him home as no one wanted him at animal control believing he would be euthanized due to being blind. The woman that rescued him took him to PetsMart where she was told he was a German Shepherd Dog and to call us. We always ask for pictures of the dog and for some reason did not this time, just said bring him on up. One look and we knew he was a Belgian Malinois. This sweet, gentle yet fierce boy deserves a chance to see again. Please help him today with a donation. Cisco came to us untact. He will not leave rescue that way. We are simply unsure at this stage if he will be neutered when the cataracts are removed or if their will be a second anesthia and surgery. Regardless, all adult animals are sterilized before leaving our rescue.
