Her sight may be failing, but her spirits are high

I am currently fostering a young Border Collie, Firefox, who has been diagnosed with retinal degeneration. She is completely blind in her right eye and has very limited vision in her left, which will continue to diminish until she is completely blind. So far, there have been no inquries about her but I am hopeful that the perfect family will come forward soon.

 

She truly is a "dog like any other" and then some! She leaps to catch toys, chases the other dogs as they play fetch and, above all, loves to spend time with people, frequently hopping the 4-foot fence to join us if we forget and try to leave the fenced area without her. See her adoption listing here (follow the link under Adopting a Border Collie to view available dogs, then click on Firefox).
