Love was a foreign concept to Puddin after being brought into this world. She was nеglесted by her owners to the point where an eye infection took her eyesight.
Thankfully, she was rеscuеd from her Texas home and taken in by the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of Texas (SPCA). But by then, she was completely blind and needed both of her eyes removed. Despite her disability, 22-year-old Cory Gonzales fell in love with her.
“When I saw Puddin online, I immediately fell in love with her ears, of all things. The day after I met her, I came back in and adơрted her! I think we both feel so blessed to have met each other,” Gonzales said. Even though Puddin doesn’t have her sight, she is still a very happy dog.
She is loving and affectionate, and can always be found sniffing around. This is because she heavily relies on her sense of smell to make up for her lack of eyesight. She’s always putting things in her mouth and loves to play fetch with balls and bells.
Puddin’s dad said he has really been in awe of her progress.
“She has really learned how to use her sense of smell to run, play, find her toys. Even stop herself from hitting things. It’s really amazing to watch,” Gonzales said. “Within the home, Puddin has developed her own little system to help keep herself safe. She reminds me of a goldfish because her ears or whiskers will gently brush across something and she’ll whip around really fast likе, ‘I’m going to hit something.’”
