Adopt Me! Blind Beagle Mix Stevie Has Lots of Reasons to Smile
The senior pup was found alone in the woods in October
Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We’d like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Stevie, a blind beagle mix who has no idea how beautiful she is.
This pretty redhead was found alone in the woods in October, crying for help. Thanks to a rescuer, she made her way to the East Greenwich Animal Protection League, a no-kill animal rescue in East Greenwich, Rhode Island (which is in danger of being homeless, too, next month — read more below).
Although shelter life is never easy, Stevie is miraculously optimistic and greets everyone with a smile, says the rescue. She is loving her foster home where she receives insulin injections for diabetes twice a day. Stevie has also learned to use a pair of “angel wings” which guide her safely around her surroundings.
This small, gentle girl gets along well with other dogs but because of her special needs, she would be safest in a home with no high-energy animals or small children. Her new owner will need to continue her insulin injections and help her navigate her new home with a routine. She might require a little more effort than other pets, but Stevie will show you that she’s worth it. To learn how to adopt her, visit the rescue’s website.
The East Greenwich Animal Protection League will be homeless when their rental contract ends on Nov. 15. To help the League purchase a permanent shelter, visit their GoFundMe page and donate.
