Blind dog sparks viral appeal to find her forever home after ‘little interest’

A Facebook appeal by an animal welfare charity to rehome a blind dog with “little interest” has gone viral.

The Scottish SPCA posted the appeal on the social media platform in order to find a new home for Miss Piggy, a Patterdale terrier cross, who had to have both eyes removed, the Daily Record reports.

Thousands of well-wishers shared the post in the hopes that the seven-year-old dog finds a perfect home soon.

The Facebook post published on Saturday has so far garnered over 3,100 likes, 2,200 shares and 390 comments.

One commenter even said that she'd already applied to rehome Miss Piggy.

SPCA's Facebook post reads: "Our Angus centre have been searching for an extra special home for Miss Piggy, but sadly she has had very little interest.

"She is a lovely, affectionate Patterdale terrier-cross who loves nothing more than getting lots of cuddles and affection!

"Although she is completely blind, she doesn’t let it hold her back and is an extremely confident little dog. She can however be a bit wary of other dogs coming up to her on walks.

"For this reason, she is looking for a home with no other pets and no young children so that she can get all the attention she deserves!

"Miss Piggy would make a very loving companion, and we would love to find her the perfect home."

One commenter shared: "Bless her, we lost our blind dog over a year ago, they make fantastic pets you just need to adjust things to help suit their needs."

Another said: "I had a blind dog and you wouldn't know. Textured mats at various spots around the house (top and bottom of stairs, doorways, etc), jangle of keys when out walking her at the beach so she knew where you were.

"There's a blind dog rescue in the US that has the motto – blind dogs see with their heart. So true!!"
