Patches and Sally: Bonded Blind/Deaf Dog and Her Guide Need Home After Owner Dies

A pair of bonded dogs have lost nearly everything after their owner passed away unexpectedly. For now, at least they still have each other.

Sally was born deaf and blind. After spending years living with Sally, Patches has taken on guide dog duties for her, and gently guides her little sidekick through life. Because of this, and because the dogs have already suffered tremendous loss, the Animal Defense League of Texas is hoping that both will be adopted as a pair. They are even offering a discount on adoption fees for anyone taking them together.

I am a spayed female Australian Cattle Dog/Terrier mix. I am four years old and I weigh 27 pounds. I am both deaf and blind, and have been all my life. I am very brave and use my nose to tell me what is going on. I am not afraid to get on a leash and go for a walk, but it helps if you touch me gradually so I’ll know you are there. My owner died so I find myself here. I am housebroken and like other dogs, but children may disturb me due to my disabilities.
