A SWEET RAY OF SUNSHINE! This three-year-old canine gentleman of mixed origin can be described as dignified and humble. His demeanor makes you feel like he is sorry to inconvenience you, as he is differently abled and does not want to put you out. You see, he lost both of his eyes due to infection. But he is a sweetheart extraordinaire and he is so easy to deal with that you would never feel put upon! After only perusing his foster home once, he had the environment down and began navigating independently. Truly amazing! I challenge each of you to blindfold yourself and walk around your own home and see if you can match this level of accuracy and precision!

He will softly sit for treats and takes them gently. His ideal home would be adult only with minimal stairs as those are challenging, but doable. He is not very comfortable with car rides and does best sitting on the floorboard so he doesn't have to climb too high to join you on the seat. His ideal home would be adults only as the environment MUST be consistent. He would enjoy exercising with you on a leash. A finer pet is not out there. A TDR Angel is sponsoring Ray's adoption fee. Available through Tired Dog Rescue, Gulfport, MS. Apply at tireddogrescue.org

Sponsors: Lisa Rabiger is sponsoring Rays adoption fee

We at Tired Dog Rescue strive to find homes for dogs in need, build quality relationships with responsible owners, and preserve current dog-family homes by seeking solutions to financial, behavioral, and situational dog problems. We believe the lives of homeless, abandoned and abused dogs are just as precious as dogs that currently have a loving home. We believe that all dogs deserve a loving home despite their age, medical condition and/or disabilities. We provide whatever medical care is needed regardless of cost. All dogs are spayed/neutered, heartworm negative and current on vaccinations before being placed.
