Senior Dog Settling into New Home

Senior Dog Settling into New Home

Cucu, as an older and blind senior dog, may not be everyones idea of the perfect match. But thanks to a media-sponsored post, she’s now in a new, loving forever home! She has two canine siblings now– a sister (in picture, right) and a brother (not pictured) who is also blind.

Many thanks to Beatin’ Feet Dog Walking for sponsoring the post that connected her with her family!
