Description: 
This is Precious, and she certainly lives up to her name! She came to us from another rescue after they pulled her from a shelter. She was originally found wandering the streets all alone. Precious is a Miniature Poodle (approx. 11' at the shoulder) weighing in about 10 lbs, and she is one of the sweetest, friendliest dogs you will ever meet. We’re guessing Precious to be around 10 years old, but with the way she acts, you wouldn’t guess her a day over 2! She romps around regularly, and loves to bat at your hands with her paws and nibble on your fingers. Precious is a special needs senior. She is completely blind, but that doesn’t slow her down a bit! Precious is quite adventurous, and wanders all over the house. When she walks, she sticks her nose and front paws out in front of her like a cane to warn her of obstacles. Her hearing is quite good, and she can usually quickly and easily find you in the house or yard if you keep speaking to her. One of the greatest contributing factors to Precious’ blindness is some corneal scarring resulting from untreated dry eye. We started her on an ophthalmic ointment
