Description: 
Mr. Bojangles is a super sweet and cuddly blind Chihuahua/Dachshund mix looking for a loving forever home. He is approximately 1-1/2 years old and weighs about 12 lbs. Mr. Bojangles is a special case, however, and will need a very special person to take care of him. He has been diagnosed with hydrocephaly, an abnormal buildup of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the ventricles of the brain. While medically there is little to nothing that can be done, we feel that so long as he is enjoying life, we will do everything we can to keep him comfortable and happy. He is severely underweight and needs more than a little love to even have a shot. All Mr. Bojangles really wants to do is curl up in your lap and sleep. If you think you have the lap and the love to make a big difference in the life of a little dog, please apply today! All of our dogs and cats are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, dewormed and microchipped. Dogs are also tested for heartworms and cats for FeLV/FIV. If a dog has been with us long enough, he/she has also received some basic obedience training with our in-house trainer and staff.
