BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Just in time for the holidays, a blind dog from Alabama has found her forever home.
The Brown Dog Coalition shared Josie's story on Sunday. She was found injured on the side of a road in Alabama, and was nursed back to health by foster parents who helped her adjust to life without sight.
Later, Josie's Massachusetts fosters found out she had been shot in the face—but they said it hasn't affected her personality.
"Pellets remain in her head, cheeks, and ears, but as long as they aren’t bothering her, they won’t require removal," Brown Dog Coalition wrote in a Facebook post. "Despite her tragic past, Josie has somehow preserved her sweet and silly innocence. Her presence touches the hearts of everyone she meets."
Her Massachusetts foster has decided to take her in for good.
"Her foster, now forever, mom says, 'After everything she’s endured, she’s the happiest, loviest, most affectionate wiggle bum around'," the post read.
Brown Dog Coalition is asking for donations to support more dogs like Josie find their forever homes. You can donate here.
