The next "LA" pet to be featured here at Space Paws is Sir Yardley, who is being fostered in Bowie, MD. He may have lost an eye to a cruel abuser, but not his spirit! Yardley is a young lab/hound mix, full of life and love to share with a special family.... you, perhaps??
Even if you can't take Yardley, you can help with a donation to his rescue group, MJs Animal Sanctuary. Even small donations can help the wonderful critters fostered there. Here's Yardley's story:
Whoever jabbed out Yardley's eye also hurt this poor boy's chances of adoption even more than we realized. Yardley has just been diagnosed with diabetes insipidus as a result of his eye/head injury. He is in the peak of health but his body does not concentrate his urine so he requires daily medication so he can remain housebroken (he is housebroken but sometimes is unable to control his urine without the medication).
Without the medication Yardley will be perfectly fine (as long as he has access to fresh water 24/7) but he may not be able to control his urine all the time. In light of this latest development, we are working harder than ever to change the course of fate for this amazing, beautiful, young dog - we will work closely with anyone interested in adopting Yardley to give him the chance his abuser has tried to take away. His medication is currently a twice a day pill that costs only about $16.00 per month. Please watch the video below to get an idea of just how awesome this boy is!
Yardley is believed to be a lab/hound mix, a beautiful red-brown and white, and he is missing his left eye due to a penetrating eye injury. Someone literally had to jab out this poor boy's eye as he had no other injuries. Extensive surgery has been performed and he has made a full recovery, but he will always be blind in the left eye. This has not deterred Yardley, though! He is sweet, affectionate and loving, and will do well in home with some room. He is great with female dogs and puppies. He probably will not do well with cats, though he has not been tested with them. He is excellent with his foster mom's two children (ages 4 and 11), and follows them around wanting to be with them always :) Yardley is about 2 years old, about 60 lbs., has been neutered and is up to date on all vaccines. He is housebroken but requires a simple medication to help him hold it due to the injury he suffered at the hands of his abuser. Yardley is a total love bug! He loves people and wants to be a family member. He is affectionate and loves belly rubs and to be petted. He enjoys chew toys and treats, and shows no food, toy, or treat aggression. Interested adopters or fosters please contact MJsAnimalSanctuary@gmail.com. Application, references, vet reference, home visit and adoption application apply. There is no adoption fee for Yardley to an approved home
