An active 5 years old, Boogie is in the prime of his life. In addition, despite being a shepherd mix, he is just 38 lbs.

He may seem a little shy and hesitant in new situations. However, that is only because Boogie is blind. (Since he was picked up as a stray, it goes without saying that this dog is pretty resourceful).

Don’t feel sorry for him or write him off as too much labor…Since dogs rely more on scent and sound, blindness isn’t as big deal to him as it might be to a human and many blind humans manage just fine.

Like Tina Turner sings in “Proud Mary”, he just needs to take things nice, slow and easy when you start walks. Let him get his bearings by touching you ever so slightly. Once he gets a feel for where he is, you can take things up a few notches:-)! Boogie is also very affectionate and outgoing. His dark eyes sparkle and smile. He is into heavy petting and will bestow tons of kisses in return. Some people even call him goofy.

Goofiness aside, he possesses impeccable manners and puts the GENTLE in gentleman. Boogie seek a quiet home with someone who would be willing to be his seeing eye person.

Boogie is waiting for that special someone at the Liberty Animal Shelter in Jersey City, NJ.  If you can give him the second chance he deserves, please contact lhs@libertyhumane.org, or better still, stop by the shelter to meet him.  The Liberty Animal Shelter is located at 235 Jersey City Boulevard, (Exit 14C off the NJ Turnpike, across from Liberty Science Center parking lot entrance) Jersey City, NJ
