Homes Needed for Four Blind Dachshund Puppies from Ohio Puppy Mill
If your can open your heart any wider, these cute, blind, and possibly deaf puppies need a loving home. They are located at the Saint Francis Animal Sanctuary Inc. in Vermilion, Ohio. Excerpt from Fox 8 News:
Director Deborah Parker says careless breeding left a litter of puppies blind. They were born with a condition called Microphthalmia, which happens when two dachshunds with the dominant "dapple" gene, are breeded together.
"We're looking for homes for these puppies and we want to make sure they go to good, loving homes. Their life expectancy can be 15 years. Even though they are blind, they can live a normal life. They just need love and patience with someone who's willing to work with them," Parker told Fox 8 News.
