Clifford was a stray. He is blind in both eyes, but needed his left eye removed due to discomfort and infection. Clifford was most likely used as target practice; since he had; bb’s lodged in his eye’s and ears. Most likely, he was blinded by bb’s. When Clifford came into rescue, he was one of the saddest dogs we had ever seen. He got into our car, wondering what was going to happen next in his life, little did he know he was going to PWD, and he would soon believe life could be good. Just after a few short weeks, meet the new and improved Clifford. With the comforts of home, his real personality has started to shine through the despair he came with. He loves life, people and enjoys the company of other dogs. He will be a very dedicated family member.

A little bit of breed information:
Mixed breed dogs are generally healthier than purebred because they draw from a broader gene pool. When adopting a mixed breed dog, focus more on personality rather than breed. This can help so that you appreciate the dog even more. Love him on his own terms and he will love you back more.

“He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.”
