Blind puppy saved from euthanization much in demand

May 7, 2014 (NEW YORK)

When the puppy was born in Pennsylvania without vision, the decision was made to euthanize it, but that didn't happen.

"A vet rescued him from the person who was not going to use him. But he could not keep him and brought him here -- we said we'd help," said Aliza DuBois, of Riverside Animal Hospital on the Upper West Side.

The campaign to save the blind puppy and find it a home went viral on Facebook. Hundreds of calls came in to save the dog and offer a home. "We have great candidates -- found great people to take him," said DuBois.

The puppy has been named Hudson and is close to finding a permanent home.

"He's fine -- puppies really rely on their sense of smell, over sight, to get around. For sure," said DuBois.
