MEOW Canine Division rescued several dogs from a life-threatening situation in South Korea during the holidays of 2015. From the photo of this Chow Chow sent in advance, we knew of his cleft palate, and we had been told of his severe heartworm, but we did not know until we met him that Oliver had been born without eyes. Unaware that he is different, Oliver is a happy, confident dog who bonds easily with women but is unsure of men. The generous gift sent in honor of Oliver Twist was used to help treat his heartworm, a difficult task. We’re happy to report that his treatment was successful. While getting healthy, Oliver was fostered by a kind woman who promised to get him through, get him ready for adoption and then kiss him goodbye. She was able to follow through on the first two of these, but when it was time for Oliver to be interviewed by a prospective adopter, with tears in her voice she simply said, “Oliver is my dog. Oliver is my dog.” He has a wonderful home with her for life.
