Looking for a special needs pup
Well, meet little “Jumbo” he may be a small breed pup but he has a BIG “jumbo” personality with SO much love and happiness emitting from his fluffy and soft like a bunny little body
Jumbo was rescued by one of our rescue partners off the streets of Tijuana a couple months back. Immediately realized the little guy has some issues with visualization and indeed a veterinarian confirmed he is partially blind from both eyes. He can see some shadows but has some depth issues and of course moving in the dark can be scary for him but he is happy as a clam during day light playing in the yard with his puppy friends and even better if there are friendly humans like children or adults calling for him to find him and love on him.
This little wiggle butt has been looking for a forever family for a while and we just KNOW there is a perfect family out there for him who doesn’t care if he is semi-blind and can provide the love and safety of a forever home to this happy loving and so very handsome little guy.
Jumbo is currently approx 4mo and 8 pounds, expected to be under 15 pounds full grown but we could be wrong and he could hit 20lbs max. He has long soft wavy coat we are thinking a yorkie/Maltese/ shitzu mix .. again he is a baja super mutt so he could have chihuahua, pitbull, shepherd and schnauzer as well so we don’t know if he is hypoallergenic or low shedding ..... but if you are looking for a small breed handsome pup he is certainly the right match!
Jumbo is neutered, microchipped, done with his puppy vaccine series and ready to go home!
Please, submit an adoption application online at ARWOB.org
Don’t forget to ask for our foster to adopt trials which would be great for a special needs pup like jumbo who is visually impaired and we want to make sure his family experiences what his challenges may be before finalizing his adoption to assure he has indeed found his Forever home.
