Chilli was found dumped near bins on the outskirts of London. He is approximately 16 weeks old (October) and is blind.
This lovely boy has gone straight into foster with an amazing foster family. Chilli is a confident, happy puppy - his disability does not seem to deter him from living life to the full.
He is so close to being fully house trained, just the odd wee, on the back door mat if the door is closed. This boy is an exceptional young dog and, as he has been born blind, his other senses are more tuned in. He does not let it hinder him in any way. Chilli adapts to new environments easily and is not bothered if he walks into or stumbles over anything, he just moves on.
Being blind, he loves to know where someone is at all times, when he’s awake. He is just a typical sighthound pup, affectionate, playful, eats well, a little mouthy at present and still sleeps lots - it will take time building his confidence when you are not around, (although he has been left for 30 minutes and not a peep!).
Even with the company of other dogs, Chilli is happiest snuggled up at night on your bed.
Lynne, Chilli's fosterer says:
" When we took Chilli as a foster, I thought it would be a new learning curve for us having not had a blind dog previously, but that has not been the case. Chilli was confident from the outset. The change in him has been the level of independence. Initially he was quite 'needy', understandably, but now... yes he has a disability, but that does not affect anything he wants to achieve. He is growing fast and can still be quite mouthy when he’s having one of his big bursts of energy, but that doesn’t last long and the rest of the time he just wants to cuddle up with someone and nap. Chilli is not going to let anything stop him enjoying his life to the full! He really deserves to find his forever home soon."
ESSENTIALS FOR CHILLI
An exceptionally dedicated, loving home
The company of other dogs - one or two (ideally a sighthound in the mix, but not essential)
A large and secure garden space where he can run freely
A home with minimal 'clutter'
Time and patience
A home who will allow him to be 'normal' - which he is
No children under 16
Blind dog experience would be ideal but, again, not essential for the right home
