Status: RESCUED!

As splendid-looking as young Charlie is, we’re worried about him since he has some eyesight issues. While he CAN see, it seems he only sees shapes and shadows. He is immaculate, and his eyesight issues don’t seem to dampen his enthusiasm. He would have played ball with us all day, but it was getting near closing time. Putting this one back in his kennel was especially tough.

My theory is that homeless and abandoned dogs are a lot like the “broken window syndrome” in low-income communities, and that initially small problems result in wide ripple effects. Stop them from getting worse, and an entire neighborhood, a city, a region, maybe even the world can be changed.
