Chops enamors his foster from day one

Chops arrived into Pet Haven's foster program with his sibling Chewy. They were both loved dearly and very well cared for by their previous owners. For reasons beyond their control they had to surrender their beloved pets. Chops is around 2-3 years old and is blind, or almost blind. We are going to have him checked out by an eye specialist to determine if there is anything that can be done for this sweet old guy. He appears, however, to have figured out how to get around without sight. Animals are amazing at how they adapt.

His foster mom, who is, in her words, "absolutely enamored with him" has the following to say about Chops:

"...Very VERY smart dog and adapts wonderfully. Like his previous owners said he is timid around doorways and I'm pretty sure he can see light/dark because in shadowy areas and change of texture under his paws, he pauses. It's so odd too because on the way home he was "looking out the window" and he'll sit on the back of my couch looking out the window and out on the patio looking down."
