Blind Dogs Deaf Dogs 3 legged & physical disabilities New Arrivals Unavailable

If you follow our website you may have noticed PWD rescues many hounds with disabilities.  You might ask why?  
I wanted to talk a little bit about the truth and the misconceptions of hounds.

One of the biggest misconceptions of hounds is that they are loud smelly stupid hunting dogs, and have no business being house pets.   Once these dogs  realize the comforts a home,  and it happens pretty quickly,  believe me the they LOVE  it, and a warm cozy home is far better than being a hunting dog.   And yes they can become lazy sofa pups.   

Many potential adopters fear their barking but in reality they are pretty quiet and many hounds end up homeless because they are quiet or hurt and can no longer hunt. Hounds were bred to hunt in packs of 2-4 dogs, so they are extremely social.  One of the greatest advantages of rescuing this breed of dog - we rarely have to worry about hounds with the other dogs at the rescue, and they will do GREAT at dog parks.  Most  hounds love people and generally do great with kids and if raised around cats  they do well with them as well.   They are not bred to be aggressive - most hounds don’t have a mean bone in their body and will do almost anything to stay away from a fight! 

Lastly, many people think they need Fort Knox  fencing,  and yes this might be true for some hounds but for the hounds we have rescued,  they  don’t stray away from their comfort zone.  I personally trail walk with one of our blind hounds, totally off lead, and she will never stray far from me or the trail.  She exemplifies the  character of a great hound.  Anyone that has met Megan,  truly understand the heart of a hound.   

Bottom line, they make great dogs to have here at PWD! - Joyce

Meet the Blind dogs at Pets with Disabilities
Living with a blind dog is very similar to living with a sighted dog - many of the blind dogs at the rescue where born blind, so they are fearless in their movements and have acute hearing and smelling senses.  They may bump into something, but it's usually only once.  When we open the apartments doors - they come out the door, down the hall, and into the yard without missing a beat.  They will all jump up on their futon beds, and they like toys, and some how they always know where their person is for the hugs and belly rubs.  We really like our blind rescues to have a fenced yard and railings on any stairways.  We encourage you to open your heart to a blind dog - they will repay you with their huge heart!!

Name:  Brody
Age:  2 years old
Disability:  Blind
Breed/Weight:  Golden/ lab Mix

History: Brody was in a "hoarding" situation, all their dogs were confiscated and relinquished to animal control.  Because of Brody's neglected past he came to us physically and mentally broken. Expecting a young vibrant blind pup, Brody was a far cry from this. He was withdrawn, shy, very thin, and his spirit was gone.

Brody has had a long road to recovery here at PWD,  but all of us including his doctors, feel he is healthy and ready for adoption! Brody is finally off all medications back to eating a regular canine diet, and best of all heartworm negative! We got Brody thru the worst and now its time to find him an adopter who will care for Brody and give him a great canine life. Brody's personality is a 10!  He is a sweet gentle dog, that has done great with all the dogs. He loves to wander thru the the yard independently,  and will sit quietly under a tree enjoying the smells and noises of the outside! Brody is great on lead, but a fenced yard is required for Brody. 

Brody is a favorite of ours and anyone else that has met him.  We are so excited for him and anxiously await to meet the family he fought so hard to live for.

Name: Charm 
Age: 8 years 
Breed/Weight: Border Collie/ 45 pounds 
Disability: Blind

History: Charm developed mature cataracts in both eyes which left her blind. Fearing for her safety on a working farm, her family reached out for help. Her eyes have been examined and tested by an eye specialist upon arrival here at PWD to see if cataracts could be removed. Unfortunately, after further diagnostics, surgery is definitely NOT an option. She is NOT in any pain and handles her blindness like a champ.

Charm has been with our rescue for almost a year, scratching our heads and saying WHY? To say Charm is blind is true, but truly not fair. After spending a year with us, I can honestly say Charm is by far one of the most intelligent border collies I have had the pleasure or knowing and spending time with. Charm likes conversation, our communication skills have become like two good friends, one helping another. I tell her where she needs to be and she understands quickly. She knows when I need for her to come in, she knows where all the doors are located, she knows her eating area, and when I just want some company in my office and she gladly lays with content by my desk. We created a mutual respect and trust for each other. Charm, welcomes all of our visitors and volunteers with a big welcome hug, as if to say are you here to meet me?

As one of our volunteers noted people need to come see the beauty of Charm first hand, and understand being blind has not taken her border collie spirit away in fact it has enhanced it!

Charm spent a couple of days with a very dear friend, she too was amazed at the awesomeness of Charm with her family and her fur family of border collies. "OMG! She is really a fabulous dog – VERY connected to people, when you call her, she comes right over, gives you a little “nose pop on the leg” and then jumps up to say hi as close as possible. She was great with the other dogs, but didn’t really seem to need them around, she loved being part of a “household”. We got home very late, so in the morning, she met the dogs, and then I put them all back to bed and left her out downstairs. She did a complete “mapping of my house” – it was amazing to watch. I decided to leave her be and went back to bed – about an hour later I heard her upstairs walking around the hallway – then she went back downstairs. By the time everyone got up again, she knew where the kitchen counters were, where the door ways were, where the couple of in-room steps were, the water bowls, the dog beds, the tables, chairs, etc… I was in awe. Brilliant girl!! I did not have to provide her ANY guidance after her “mapping” was done – in and out the door, up and down the deck, calling her from another room, up and down the stairs like any other dog. She does some herding, but only when the action is amped up and she feels she needs to be involved – ran FULL speed after my dogs in the back yard – but, other than that kind of “work” she was very content being with everyone, not really looking for “stuff” to do. Only minor toy interest, she ate in the kitchen with everyone without issue. She will only bark when she has something to say  “ I know you’re behind the closed door, open it.”

"In loving memory of Jasmine, our sweet Mena girl"

Name: Clifford (the big red dog!)
Age: 2 years old
Disability:  Blind
Breed/Weight:  Retriever Mix, 65 pounds

History:  Clifford was a stray taken to a very rural Tennessee shelter. Cliff is blind in both eyes, but his left eye needed to be removed due to discomfort and infection. Clifford was most likely used as target practice, since he had bb's lodged in his eyes and ears. Most likely blinded by bb's.

When I saw Clifford at the shelter, I immediately emailed the shelter to see if any other local recue groups had responded, they said "No, only you". I checked a week later only to find out he was still there, looking so defeated, his spirit gone. I knew we need to take this dog. When our volunteers met the transport, they too noticed he seemed beaten down, one of the saddest dogs they had ever seen. He got into our car, wondering what was going to happen next in his life, little did he know he was going to PWD, and he would soon believe life could be good again.

After a few short weeks, meet our new and improved  Clifford, "our bid red dog"!  WOW, with some good nutrition, vetting and the comforts of home, his real personality has started to shine through the despair he came with. He loves life, people, and enjoys the company of other dogs.  The kindness of the rescue is all new to him and we think he is really digging it! Cliff is a very loyal pup, a big love, we enjoy getting our Clifford hug every day. He will be a very dedicated family member.

If you are interested in meeting him, please complete our Adoption Application.

Meet the Deaf dogs at Pets with Disabilities
Living with a deaf dog has many advantages!  You can come in the front door, put your coat and bags down, before they know you're there and the greetings begin.  They are not thunder phobic.  The door bell does not create chaos.  Deaf dogs create a tremendous bond with their guardians - all communication is done with sight, so their eyes are always "on you".  We have met many people that have enjoyed learning "doggie sign language" and gotten creative in their heart connections to their dogs.  Deaf dogs seem to wag their tails as hard as any hearing dog, they love to chase their toys, cuddle, get belly rubs, and be with their person.  If you'd like a companion that won't complain about your singing voice or how loud you keep the TV - but will completely bond to your heart and moods -  experience the special relationship the deaf dogs love to have.

Name: Spirit
Age: 8 years old
Breed/Weight:  Lemon hound mix, 50lbs
Disability:  Deaf

Now that Spirit has settled in at the rescue, we can  say "WOW!", what a sweet heart!  A beautiful, sweet calm pup. Although she is deaf, (she has the greatest ears) she has managed to understand the routine quickly and has learned the direction she needs to go by small hand movements, and of course with help of the other pups. 

We got a wonderful description of Spirit's disposition from her foster mom, who completely adored her. She was in her home for almost a month until transport could b arranged to PWD. 

"She is a total love bug, not too interested in toys but is very playful with dogs,  cat and kid friendly. She settled nicely, after play time on a cozy sofa or dog bed.  She is completely house trained, and if she is sleeping I gently touch her and lead her outside. Like most hounds she enjoys sunbathing time. She is very attentive despite her disability, quickly learned our household routine and when my other dogs got excited she would join right in."

Spirit is a true joy to have here, once again she has adjusted well to a new routine, playful and friendly.

Spirit is ready to find her forever family, you will fall in love with her instantly as we all did here! Since Spirit is deaf, she requires a fenced in yard and a friendly canine friend.

If you are interested in meeting her, please complete our Adoption Application.

As always - each of our dogs could use their own angels...  please consider sponsoring Spirit

Name: Toby
Age:  8-10 years old?
Breed/Weight:  Border Collie mix, 40 pounds (needs to gain a few lbs.)
Disability:  Deaf

History: Toby was relinquished to a south Jersey shelter, no longer wanted by his family. 

Toby was definitely a bit anxious when he got to PWD but after a couple weeks, he is finally beginning to settle and getting the swing of our rescue routine. He has discovered the sofa in our office and seems very content being with both dogs and people around him. His new buddy seems to be Charm, he finds comfort in following her and just being with her - a perfect pair, she is blind and he is deaf! Toby does well with dogs and cats and will need a patient family as he adjusts to yet another new life.

We have learned a few wonderful aspects about him, besides being a smart boy, he is great on lead, knows some sign commands, sit, gives me his paw and down. We have not seen much interest in toys here, but maybe that will change too. 

Toby is a beautiful, friendly boy, and a pretty healthy senior. Toby lived in the same home from a pup, we think he lived a fairly "small life" without exposure to much of the world.  He is doing great experiencing dogs, car rides, a new environment. We believe Toby would do great with another fur companion (maybe Charm!) and he would love to have someone home most of the time.

If you are interested in meeting him, please complete our Adoption Application.

PWD Angel

We want to thank Nadya and Gene Seiler for being angels to Toby.

Name: Calvin
Age: 3 years old
Breed/Weight:  Manchester Terrier, 20 pounds
Disability:  Hearing impairment/equilibrium issues, Calvin was scheduled to be euthanized the day we rescued him.

Many past untreated ear infections has left Calvin with bi lateral ear problems, his eardrums are completely closed, and  scar tissue has formed which results in a condition called "cauliflower ear." After consultations with several specialists, dermatology, neurology and radiologist, they are all in agreement - Calvin will need a TECA, Total Ear Canal Ablation.

UPDATE! Calvin rebounded quickly from his surgery as if nothing ever happened, he is truly has been one of the most amazing patients we have ever had here at PWD. Just a good sport, 20 pounds of pure happiness, tail wagging, loves the dogs but truly would love a shoulder or lap to call his own! He loves to cuddle with humans, and melts in anyone's arms, or just happy to lay on a cozy dog bed. He still has some equilibrium issues, so he will always have a unique and funny gait but otherwise, he is a very normal and now healthy dog.  He has handled his life like a champ. He is very alert knows the routine of the rescue, goes up and down stairs and spends most of his days in my office. 

As always - each of our dogs could use their own angels...  please consider sponsoring Calvin

Meet the the 3 legged dogs and dogs with other physical disabilities - at Pets with Disabilities
We know these dogs have physical "disabilities" you can see - but they certainly don't have a disabled spirit.  They manage their missing leg or physical imperfection without missing a beat.  Their hearts are open, their eyes pleading for acceptance.  They may not be running marathons, but they will win your heart.

Name: Jersey
Age:   1 year old
Breed/Weight:  Collie/Boxer mix
Disability:  2 broken front legs - 40lbs

Jersey arrived after an urgent request from a North Carolina Shelter. He came in as a stray at the shelter with two broken legs, they fell in love with him and knew he deserved a chance and contacted Pets with Disabilities for help.

Jersey  has a wonderful personality and is full of energy.   He wants to play so bad, but unfortunately will be very limited in exercise for the next several weeks. He was seen by our Orthopedic team at MASH, and will be wearing splints for the next 4-6 weeks. He will also be on strict crate rest which is no fun for a happy, energetic pup like Jersey.   

Jersey UPDATE!  His casts are now off, bones have healed, but he is still on strict cage rest and leash walking for another week! Jersey has been one of the greatest patients and has become a favorite at our orthopedic hospital. He will be excited to be playing and acting like a young pup again.  SO happy we got him walking on all 4's again! He may not have a perfect gait, but he'll be pain free, fast, and happy!

If you are interested in meeting him, please complete our Adoption Application.


PWD Angel Thank you to Lara Batca Moore for being Jersey's angel!

Name:  Chloe
Age: 6 years
Disability: front leg injury - permanent gait issues
Breed/Weight: Collie Mix, 40 pounds

History: Chloe was an injured stray in a SC shelter. They reached out to many rescues and we stepped up for her. Chloe will be undergoing surgery to repair her injured leg.

Chloe was fostered by wonderful friends and adopters near Charleston, SC. We are very thankful to them for getting her out of the shelter and into the safety of their home. Now that Chloe is starting to settle in, here is what they have to say about her....

"Cuddle bug alert!  From the moment she sees you, Chloe wants to snuggle and be your best friend.  She is incredibly sweet, and has yet to meet someone who has not fallen in love with her cute face and personality.  She is laid back lady with a bit of a spunky side to her,  she enjoys herding our pack!  But humans are her favorite.  She loves belly rubs, car rides and is starting to  learn basic obedience she's a smart girl! Our vet believes she was most likely hit by a car, and injuries were left untreated." 

Chloe has arrived at the rescue and is ready for adoption.

If you are interested in meeting her, please complete our Adoption Application.

Chloe needs several angels to help cover her vet expenses!

for being an Angel to Chloe

Treble adopted!  Our 3 legged energizer bunny has been adopted to a great canine family.  Treble now Ranger, will enjoy life in the big city with his two new fur sisters, both with disabilities also.  Ranger seemed right at home when we went to visit him, already racing around his new home enjoying his new toys and snuggling with his new fur dad.

A big thank you to this wonderful couple who opened up their hearts to another 3 legged pup!

Name: Treble
Age:  5 mo old
Breed/Weight:  mixed breed, 20 lbs
Disability:  3 legged

History: Treble was picked up by animal control after being hit by a car.  His broken leg needed to be amputated.

Treble is a sweet little guy, with lots of puppy energy and spirit.  He gets along with other dogs, cats and loves people.  He has just arrived at PWD, has been fully vetted by the shelter, so we are accepting applications on him now.  As we get to know him, we'll update his bio.

Name: Frank
Age: 5 years
Breed/Weight: English Fox hound,  50lbs
Disability:  3 legged 

History:  Frank was surrendered to a rural NC shelter - arriving with only 3 legs.

Meet Frank a handsome, regal and very calm hound. When we received the request from the shelter to take Frank, we had a full house. Fortunately for Frank, there was a local foster available for a short time.

Here is a little of what his foster mom had to say,  "Frank is the most happy go lucky hound!  He loved my smaller male hound  and my female aussie mix, also cat friendly. We took him on a field trip to PetSmart and he fell in love with everyone and visa versa, he was friendly and playful with the kids, and loved meeting all the dogs. He is not a barker unless he heard sirens or someone pulling into our driveway.  He never had an accident in my home, loves being inside and pretty mellow just to sit on his bed.  He enjoys the small comforts of a home! And I think might make a great therapy dog."

Frank is here and has settled at the rescue, and he is in fact a sweet heart and a very easy dog!  A beautiful, sweet calm hound, that is ready to find his forever home. 

Frank is HW positive and his final treatment will be Oct 2, 2015.

Our one eyed girl, Ginger was adopted!  We are all thrilled for  Ginger, and so happy she will sharing her youthful, gentle spirit with 2 young active boys and a puppy!     

A note from her new fur mom,  "We have had Ginger for a week, and we can't imagine our lives without her.  Ginger has made our home complete.  She is the daughter I never had,  and she takes good care of her fur brother Airy and has become best friends with her new human brothers."   

Thank you for opening your heart and home to Ginger!

Age: 3 years old
Disability:  One eye missing
Breed/Weight:  Greyhound mix, 40 pounds
: Ginger was an owner relinquishment to a rural Virginia shelter
WINK WINK, Ginger is here! She needed us and she is SO THRILLED TO BE HERE! Always has a big smile on her cute face!   
The shelter was told by her old "owners" she was an independent girl, loved outside living.  REALLY? Upon arrival we immediately discovered, not only did she love inside living and the comforts of inside living, (clean beds, daily food, and no more ticks, fleas and mosquitoes) we can barely get her outside! She also adores the attention of humans and loves hanging with the other dogs. Unfortunately, Ginger had some months of neglect. 
Ginger has survived her heart worm treatment, and is now hw free and ready for her new home. She is one of the sweetest dogs, she likes being with other dogs, and is showing a lot of love for life.  She'll make a great companion to a lucky family.

What a summer we have had here at PWD, two long time rescues finally found their families.  We are thrilled to announce that Sam's adoption day finally arrived. Sam was happy to give up his PWD couch for his forever sofa. A pretty good trade!    

It took a few  years but well worth the wait for Sam!  He joins 2 hound loving fur dads, and two fur brothers, Brick and Ramon, both rescued also! When Sam was returned to our rescue, we promise him two things.. 1- that we would get him healthy and 2 - find a family that would appreciate his hound spirit! 

I received a nice note from his new fur dads,  "We just wanted to express our appreciation to PWD, for allowing us to make Sam part of our family.  From the first time we saw him we just knew he was the right fit for our family, and he has certainly proved us right.  Sam immediately bonded with our two other dogs, and have become inseparable ever since.  The first night he slept on the couch but now he  is up on the bed like the other two - jostling for prime position.    He plays with both dogs, sleeping, eating great, running and sniffing in the yard then settles in a sunny spot like a hound.  He has quickly settled himself in as part of the family.  He is just a big lovable hound, and it seems he has been with us forever.   Thanks for waiting for us Sam." 

A huge heartfelt thank you from all of us at PWD, for giving our Sam a loving home.   

Name: Sam
Age: 5 years old
Breed/Weight:  60 pounds, Hound  
Disability:  Front leg deformities
History:   Sam was adopted 4 years ago and thru no fault of his own has returned to Pets with Disabilities.   The adopter's life changed and they were no longer able to give Sam the attention and time he needed.
Welcome back Sam!  After being away for while Sam has settled nicely back into our rescue. He certainly loves the canine spirit and is now reconnecting quickly to the human spirit. The first day of his arrival, we found Sam curled up with one of our resident 3 legged dogs, Oscar. It was absolutely adorable!  Sam has very unique front legs, most likely born this way.  Although it looks awkward for us to watch him walk and run - this is Sam's normal. He is a bit older now, but still enjoys his daily walks around the rescue yard and then seems content to sit on the porch and watch the dogs play around him! He also loves warm baths! We promised Sam, we would find a new family that has canine companionship and will truly appreciate the hound spirit and his endearing front legs!  Sam is great with children, but NOT good with CATS.  

PWD Angel Thank you to Paulette Bocian for being SAM's angel!

Thank you to Natasha Allen for being SAM's angel!

Name:  Sylvester
Age: 3-5 years old
Disability:  3 legged
Breed/Weight:  Black and white, but he is mostly black with a touch of white, 12  lbs.

History: Sylvester was found as a stray in the south jersey area, with a badly mangled front leg that needed to be removed. The shelter reached out to PWD.

Sylvester is being fostered in Sewell NJ.  Per his foster mom  "Super sweet Sylvester is now ready to find his forever home!  His amputation site looks great and he has adjusted to his life on 3 legs. He is a big love bug and purrs as soon as you pet him.  Sylvester is FIV positive,  but these cats can live with non-FIV cats below are some links with info regarding fiv cats.  Sylvester was a little scared at first but within one week has made great strides, now finding him in different places and even sunning himself, he is feeling more comfortable around my smaller dogs, but still nervous around my bigger pups."     

Thank you Karen Quigley, for fostering Sylvester during his rehab time and getting to know him while he waits for his forever home.

If you're interested in adopting Sylvester, please contact Joyce at

We want to thank Phylis Nelson for being an angel to Sylvester.

Disabled Dogs at PWD currently unavailable for adoption 


These dogs will have extended time at the rescue for healing, rehab or socialization.   
Pets with Disabilities needs on-going operational funds to support the care for these dogs.   
Along with being physically disabled,  these  dogs  were neglected  in other ways  and need extra 
medical  care from us;  or  dogs  that need to be quarantined and special monitoring;  
or dogs come to us with emotional scars and  need some extra TLC....... 
We hope in time these dogs will come around and a forever home will be found.   
We cannot carry the load alone.   Please generously support Pets with Disabilities.  Thank you

With 11 permanent resident's we have limited space - and very limited resources to add dogs to the rescue program.  We can only take ADOPTABLE disabled dogs - with no temperament issues.  We will always provide whatever assistance we can - but, that won't always mean we have room at Pets with Disabilities.


the Duke & Misty Memorial Fund

The sole purpose of the Duke & Misty Memorial Fund is to provide funding to support the needs of paralyzed wheelchair dogs.  These funds will be used to purchase wheelchairs for needy families wanting to keep their dogs, for educational and support resources,  and to seek out extraordinary people to help dogs like Duke and Misty find their way to a better life.  This is surely a great way to honor their life.


Misty, an awesome pup with a inspirational spirit, sat in a shelter outside New York City for over five years. Nobody wanted to adopt Misty because her little body was broken. Mike and I learned about Misty, and immediately went to NY and adopted her. Misty became an icon. She allowed pets and kisses from thousands of folks who met her at different events we attended year after year.  She changed the minds and hearts of everyone she met - helping them realize that a wheelchair in no way takes away from the energy or the spirit of the canine heart.
