Blind and vision impaired dogs hold a very special place in my heart. I know the perfect home will be found by the rescue for them.

I liked the story so much, I had to watch it twice. Amazing is all I can say. I am sure that they will be placed in a great home.

Wow, what a great but sad story!
Wish I could take them, but I already have three. Tuggs at your heart strings!
I hope they find a great big hearted person to give them the best possible furever home! Newscoverage helps, but two dogs and one being a special needs dog, what are the odds? Sad sad

Karen, do you know if the rescue will adopt outside of Oklahoma (not for me, we have our hands full)?

I volunteer w/ SGRR, we have worked with applicants out of state previously; however, prefer that they have been pre-approved through their local golden rescue so that there is a safety net in place. I do know there have been inquiries coming in based on the news coverage, not sure what will actually pan out. Tanner has siblings in OK that were adopted out with the same issues (blind & epileptic) that are thriving--however, it's a bit tougher now that he's full grown.
