Batty the blind Bulldog was completely layered in feces when his owner dumped him at the Sacramento SPCA. writes ilovemydogsomuch
The owner cited that he was unable to care for the disabled 5-month-old puppy, but the workers suspected otherwise. Batty’s situation looked more like a backyard breeding game gone wrong, and the breeder probably discarded him as there was no way to profit out of a blind pup.
Batty had a large abscess on his chin that was treated right away. As the puppy began receiving care and support from the workers, he slowly blossomed into a sweet and easy-going boy deserving of a loving home. However, the vet discovered that his blindness was caused by a rare congenital birth defect. As expected, no one wanted to adopt a permanently blind pooch.
Although Batty’s future seemed grim, the happy-go lucky puppy was unperturbed by his troubles. He happily spent his days with Bueller, another disabled pup at the shelter. But when Bueller got adopted, the workers knew they had to do something to help the lonely Batty.
The workers shared Batty’s story on social media and made a desperate plea for his adoption. As fate would have it, Wisconsin couple Cassidy Kraus and Brett Weyers learned about Batty and they instantly knew he belonged with them. The couple already had another blind dog, Soto, and they knew Batty would fit right in with him.
Soon, Cassidy, Brett, Soto and the kids set out on a 33-hour drive to Sacramento to get Batty. It was an emotional moment when the exhausted family finally met the treasured pooch! The overwhelmed Batty was ecstatic as he greeted his new folks, and he simply lost his mind as he embraced his big doggie brother who was just like him!
Despite being born into a literally dark life, Batty has gratifyingly found his ray of light. This gleaming soul has been renamed as Ago, and he certainly is a pampered cutie in his new home. With his sunshine personality and healing presence, he has made his family complete in the truest sense!
