Atlanta, GA: Kola, sweet 7 year old partially blind Rottie Needs Foster

 UPDATE: FOSTERED!  *From Christine: Kola, whose mom lost her job and her home, needs a foster home until his mom gets settled and then she will take him back.  This arrangement could end up being permanent, although her original intention is to take him back when she can.  Kola recently had a red growth on one of his eye removed which left him 75% blind in that eye.  His other eye is approximately 45% blind.  He gets along ok, but if it is dark, he does not see very well and looks for his owner and sister for comfort. This is a note from the owner who has to give him up due to financial issues:  "Kola my eldest rott is  a beautiful 7 year old rott, going grey, but a very good dog.

The original owner of the three dogs moved years ago and left the dogs with the tenants who were supposed to care for the dogs. They DIDN’T.

WONDERFUL UPDATE *From Monica: I have some fabulous news....after 6 long months (with an AMAZING foster mom) Roxy and Gizmo have a new forever home. Which I could not be more excited about! We had so many applicants and so many emails & calls. But, my foster group was really tough and they cut out all of the fruitcakes until the right family came along! So, thanks again for your help in trying to find my pups a home, I am extremely grateful. Bless you and your group for all that you do to help the animal community! UPDATE: ROXIE AND GIZMO ARE IN FOSTER CARE WITH A VOLUNTEER FROM ANGEL DOGS. THEY STILL NEED A PERMANENT HOME THOUGH. PLEASE RETURN FOR UPDATED CONTACT INFO.  *From Monica: I am in desperate need of help in finding a new home for my 2 dogs. Roxie - Female, black and tan min pin, 7.5 years old, approx 19 - 20 lbs, spayed  Gizmo - Male, chocolate and cream chihuahua, 7.5 yeards old, also 19-20 lbs, neutered --- I have had them since since I was able to take them about 8 weeks of  age. I am afraid that I may have to separate them, but am so hoping I do not have to. The reason I must find a new home is *my son is extremely allergic to them.* He has puffy, red eyes, sneezes, and has raised red rashes on his body daily, which he scratches intensely. I give him children's Claritin and he has gone through a number of prescription creams, which one is applied almost daily. I have waited as long as I can, waiting... MORE INFO AND PHOTOS
