Special Needs French Bulldog
Aemon was surrendered to our rescue when he was 2.5 years old (in February of 2020). His family surrendered him because he had spontaneously gone blind, seemingly overnight. He went from a seeing and active dog to running into walls and suffering from severe separation anxiety (understandably so).
We took him to a veterinary ophthalmologist who said he presented textbook SARDS (sudden acquired retinal degeneration syndrome). This is more common in older dogs, and at just 2.5 years old, Aemon was the youngest dog in which he had ever seen it occur.
Aemon has been living in his foster home since then, gets around fairly well, can use steps to get on the bed on his own, can and will jump on the couch to be next to you, uses a doggy door to do his business outside (most of the time, he does get disoriented at night when everyone is asleep and it is quiet). Aemon would not be a good apartment dog, as he does get vocal when left alone due to his separation anxiety.
Aemon would do best in a home with 1 or 2 people, kids over 15 who will leave him alone are ok, and female dogs or small male dogs would be ok too. I don’t know how he knows the size of the large male dogs, but he has hated every one that he has met thus far. He’s a bit of a bully with dogs his size, but can co-exist.
He loves cuddles, is fiercely loyal, is bilingual, loves to play soccer, sounds like a little pig, has hearing like an owl, a nose like a bear (hide yo food), and will stick by your side no matter what!
**Aemon is only currently available for adoption in the Houston area**
