Blue Cross Suffolk is seeking a special home for blind Border Collie Oscar, who was brought into the centre when his owner could no longer care for him.

Oscar, who is nearly four, was born blind due to congenital cataracts but staff say it doesn’t stop him from living life.

Karina Grimwade, centre manager at Blue Cross Suffolk, said, “Oscar is such a sweetheart, and a real snuggle monster.

“The blindness does not stop him from living life to the full and running around without a care in the world as it’s all he has known since birth.

“He’s such a friendly dog who loves a good fuss and a cuddle. After a walk and playtime he is happy to chill out and nap – especially if there’s a cosy sofa he can cuddle up on. 

“Blind pets just need a bit of time to settle into their new surroundings and to get used to the layout of their new home. We advise owners to keep household furniture and the pet’s possessions, such as their water bowl, in the same place so that the pet dog or cat can build up a mental map of their new home. A secure garden is also a must.”

Staff are hoping to find a loving home for Oscar with an owner who has experience caring for blind pets. For more information visit their website.
