I was found roaming the country roads in Adams County. I was scared and very hungry when a nice man stopped and picked me up. It turns out he was the Adams County Dog Warden. At first, they did not realize that I had a sight impairment and they just assumed I was scared of everything. Then they noticed my eyes looked funny. Unfortunately, being a rural county animal shelter, they do not have funds for medical care, so they decided I needed to come to a rescue. Well, here I am at Harlequin Haven and loving life!! I just arrived yesterday morning and I already have an appointment to see the Vet first thing tomorrow morning!! I just want to thank the dog warden and the employees at the shelter for keeping me safe!! I hope my previous owners see this because I want to thank them for dumping a sight impaired puppy on the road and not being man/woman enough to make sure I was in a safe place. I do believe in karma and one day you will get yours!

Update 11/20: I went to the Vet this morning and it was what the rescue expected. I am not 100% blind, but I have very limited sight. I have Congenital Optic Nerve Abnormality; the vet believes it is hereditary since I am so young. Unfortunately, there is nothing that can be done to fix it.
Update 11/21: I added some new pictures of me below so you could see how handsome I am!!

Update 12/29: I am NOW ready for adoption!!! Okay forever home where are you???

Please can you spare a few dollars to help the Rescue continue to help me and other Danes like me? It would be greatly appreciated. Without the Rescue who knows where we would have ended up!!
Thanks, Porter
