A PUPPY in the care of a Warrington animal charity may go blind.
Labrador cross, Ben, was brought to Warrington Animal Welfare (WAW) with his siblings who were all ‘terribly ill’ with parvovirus.
The team have managed to save most of the puppies and they have all found their forever homes – but five-month-old Ben has ongoing medical issues.
He suffers from diabetes and unfortunately loses his sight.
A WAW spokesperson said: ‘We have booked him in with a specialist for an assessment of his cataracts which is going to cost us around £500-600.
“Ben is currently in a wonderful foster home with one of our volunteers, he is a lovely, cheerful boy, he will spend hours chasing his ball and playing with his toys and snuggling up on the couch to a hug.”
His adoptive father said: ‘It’s such a shame to see such a confident young man growing increasingly scared as his eyesight deteriorates.
“We are heartbroken to see him no longer playing with his ball that he loved so much.
“He always loves to play with the other dogs and sit on top of us for lots of cuddles.”
The WAW team is doing everything they can to bring him back to a confident, playful pup and ensure he has a wonderful life.
