Hope, the mixed spaniel with special needs was adopted!
We are so happy to announce Hope, the special needs dog is with his furever family now! Hope, now Doc(named after the legendary musician Doc Watson who has risen above his disability) was adopted by his foster family. The Berecz family fell in love with this sweet boy and decided to keep him furever!
Hope (now Doc) is so happy at his new home. He is already inseparable with his Pomeranian siblings and running around the house like he has been living there for a long time.
We are so happy that Hope (who was abandoned and survived living at an outdoor all alone without being able to see anything ) now will never be alone and live happily ever after with his loving family!
I am blind and a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Hope stayed in his house starving and scared until he was found by a rescuer in South Korea.
