A 10-year-old Labrador named Dumpling is looking for a home as she was abandoned. Besides being a senior dog, this Australian sweetheart is also blind. It is truly heartbreaking to hear her story.
Labrador Rescue posted an ad on the Facebook page, appealing for a new home for Dumpling, “I didn’t have the best start to life but since joining Labrador Rescue my life has turned around. Unfortunately, I was dumped at the pound at 10 years old, blind, overweight and alone. I had some puppies over the years and I guess my old owners didn’t need me anymore. Since being in their care I have lost over 13 kg so I would like a new family to help me stay on this weight loss journey (although I really don’t have much more weight to lose). As I am now older I find that small frequent walks are perfect for me.”
It continued, “As you can tell I have no eyes; I had to lose them as they were causing me a lot of pain. Now I am pain-free and ready to find my new forever home. I live with cats and another dog, I am good with them as long as they don’t get right in my face as it gives me a shock sometimes… all I do is bark at them. I won’t hurt anyone. I would ideally like a home with no stairs.”
It then concluded, saying, “I can be the only pet or I can share the love and have fur siblings. I am okay if I’m left alone whilst you go out but it would be nice to have someone home often to keep me company in my senior years.”
Dumpling is an “extremely sweet, charming and good-natured” and this adorable senior girl is just searching for a loving home where she can live out her days in peace.
Dumpling is located in Australia, on Queensland’s Gold Coast. Any potential adopters can be assured Dumpling has already been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and tested for heartworms. And according to Labrador Rescue, this “gorgeous girl” is available for $300.
Hopefully, Dumpling gets adopted soon.
