The dog was adopted after surgery. The dog needed surgery and the money went towards his surgery bill. From the group’s website: “One Eyed Willie is a 5- to 6-month-old papillon-cavalier King Charles spaniel mix. We received an email from the shelter that they had a young dog who had an eye injury and he would either need it removed or he’d be euthanized that day. We immediately emailed back that we would take him. He did indeed have to have his eye removed, but honestly, from that first day he has been the sweetest, most loving little guy. He was a bit insecure at first. Wouldn’t you be if you had an eye hanging out of its socket? Something bad happened to this poor little man. But we have seen him blossom and he’s so young that the sky is the limit as to what an amazing personality he will develop.

“Willie gets along great with other dogs. He is currently living with a big and little dog. They were all BFF’s almost instantly. Willie spent most of his time in a crate while he was healing, so he doesn’t hate the crate. When it was safe for him to be a bit more mobile, his foster used an exercise pen and that worked well to contain him and help him heal. His new home will now have options how to introduce him to their home and contain him as well when they are gone.

“Willie is an option for a home that has had a dog as an adult. If there are children, they need to be over the age of 6.”
