Watching lively Miss Tracy as she runs inside her fenced yard or plays with her canine foster siblings, you'd never suspect that her vision is impaired. Tracy, an
approximately 9-year-old 28-lb. Rat Terrier has a genetic condition called Progressive Rod Cone Degeneration. It's not treatable, but its progress has been gradual
enough to enable Tracy to fine-tune her other senses so that she'll be able to rely on them when she eventually becomes blind. She can follow your voice to find you
on the sofa, where she will happily sit with you to be petted and have her ears rubbed. And she can use her nose skillfully to detect the difference between dogs and
cats. She gets along wonderfully with the former (and would love to have a dog buddy or two in her home), but she is most definitely not a fan of the latter! Tracy is
house-trained and walks nicely on a leash. She would so love to be adopted right now to have time to acclimate to her new home while she can still see a bit. Besides,
if she can truly see your face for just a little while, she'll always have that vision to hold in her heart as her sight dims. Tracy is a wonderful companion, who isn't asking
for your pity. She's only asking for a chance. See more photos of Tracy at
