This brave girl is Trinity. She's a 5 year old Labrador Retriever mix. Though we don't know exactly how her eye was injured, she was fortunate that Wayside Waifs stepped in and made sure she received needed medical treatment.
Though right now she's still in a cone and recovering from surgery, she's ready for a new forever home.
Here's Trinity's adoption message:
Hello, I'm Trinity, a sweet, courageous and resilient girl with a big heart. Five-years young, I am a 53-pound yellow Labrador Retriever mix who came to Wayside from another shelter that had run out of room--and just in time too. I know how lucky I was to be given a second chance for a forever home and also how lucky I was to be here with skilled vets who could do the kind of surgery on my eye that needed to be done.
I'm in the process of healing and at the same time, I'm making the best of my eye surgery, my new "digs" in the Yellow row and my "cone head" (although they tell me it's just temporary). I've had some big changes in my life but I still have a smile on my face and my tail tells you the tale about how I feel about you when you're with me.
I've been confused by what's been going on so I sometimes bump into walls and even into you but boy, oh, boy, when you start petting me down that long stretch of my back, I could stand perfectly still for that-forever. Oh, except my tail; it keeps moving like a propeller. Food- and praise-motivated, I am a smart young lady who knows how to come when I'm called, especially to supper. I'm a laid-back girl who would like a calm family life, preferably with me as the child (or with children 10 or older).
Losing sight in one my eyes is all new to me so I'm learning as I go along-will you learn with me? Happy-go-lucky and enthusiastic (despite some setbacks), I'm also an affectionate and good natured girl who would make somebody a loyal and affectionate companion. At least come say "hi" to me. You won't be sorry. Love, Trinity
