In this story (link below), the Newark Advocate talks about the adoption of pets with special needs and why their owners wouldn’t think twice about doing it again.

Meet, for example, Pickles.  Pickles’ eyes were surgically removed for health reasons but she still enjoys life!

Special needs pets can make great companions.

    Sometimes I think some of us gravitate to the special needs pups!

    • I agree with that. I have clients who have more than one special needs dog in their household. Once you have experience with special needs, it makes it easier to make the decision to bring another such dog into your home.

        In our case, the special needs kids snuck in… but they had us at “Woof” so though they remained ‘special’, it was us who came to ‘need’ them 🙂
