Manchui Montgomery – adorable, blind shih tzu boy

Posted in Uncategorized at 9:37 pm by Administrator

Manchui came to our rescue with a bad infection in his one remaining eye. We do not know what happened to his other eye – just that it was already gone when we rescued him. Unfortunately, the vet was not able to save the infected eye and he had to have it removed. It was so sad when we realized this little boy would have to live the rest of his life in darkness. He doesn’t seem to mind, though, and gets around wonderfully.

It is amazing how a little blind dog can ’see’, but this little guy does. Every day he goes to work with his foster mom, who is a groomer. He has learned the lay out of her work and knows how to get around it. He even goes to the back door to be let out when he needs to go potty. He knows right where it is! He uses his ears to sound out where things are and where the other dogs around him are. He rarely misses what he is looking for. He is a true inspiration.

    manchui’s story is so similar to our beloved little old blind shihtzu MELVIS, it is truely uncanny. our hearts broke when melvis passed away last summer. we have since adopted another dog (who would drive a special needs dog crazy- as he is bonkers) however, could you please send me instructions on how to send a some monetary support your way for manchui? thank you and bless you for taking care of that remarkable little guy.

    ps– melvis, also eye-less, could even play fetch!

    I have a shih tzu that lost both of his eyes after a groomer accidentally poked his eye with a scissor. The infection of the eye we tried to save jumped to his good eye. It was his first professional grooming that was disasterous! But, that was 3 years ago and my Gizzy is able to walk around without difficulty, climb the steps to my room and find my bed at the age of 13… He just cannot go back down the steps! He has learned the parameters of the sidewalk and yard, plays with squiggly wiggly balls for hours tossing them about …yes picking it up with his tiny mouth, and finding them, eventually! He also is my best watchdog! I hope anyone reading this will please give Manchui a warm home. I have a second blind dog that most people never even figure out he is blind until he runs into something not usually there. Please consider giving this dog or any blind dog a home. If my county ordinances would permit it, Manchui would be with me! But, three is the limit!
