Izzys Story: (veternarian info at bottom)
*Follow izzys journey here*-

Me and my boyfriend rescued this 1 year old border collie mix at the beginning of October 2011. She was at an abusive home.
As a small new born pup she went without food and shelter. She was left outside for days on end until her owner moved away and left her there to rot.
Luckily she was rescued by a young man who took her into his home. Well when her hyper border collie came out from being locked in the house for days, he to started to abuse her.
Beaten over an over for things any pup would do, picked up and thrown across the room, he decided he was done with her and since the shelters wouldn't take her he was going to drop her off on a random ally somewhere. His girlfriend decided it was enough, that's where I stepped in and she gave the pup over to me.
I knew something was off the moment we got her she constantly ran into things head first, she wouldn't run after toys till she heard them hit the ground, something was wrong with her eyes.
Izzy has cataracts in both eyes eaither from abuse or mail nutrition or just it being hereditary, eaither way with how much suffering izzy has gone through she deserves to see normal again to run and chase toys like a normal dog and she has that option. Just a small surgery stands in her way.
Me being only 21 working two jobs to pay the bills anything will help us get this surgery for her.
We are saving all the money we can to help this georgeous kind pup see normal again, so even the smallest of donation will be a HUGE help to get her surgery up and going before she goes blind.

Thanks for taking the time to read over Izzys story =] and if you decide to donate, Izzy and i both thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

I cannot see you Mommy, when you cuddle me so near.
And yet I know you love me, it's in the words I hear.
I cannot see you Daddy, when you hold me by your side
But still I know you love me when you tell me so with pride.
I cannot see to run and play out in the sun so bright
For here inside my tiny head it's always dark as night.
I cannot see the treats you give when I am extra good
But I can wag my tail in Thanks just like a good dog should.
"She cannot see. The dogs no good" is what some folks might say
"She can't be trained, she'll never learn She must be put away."
But not you, Mom and Daddy You know that it's alright
Because I love you just as much as any dog with sight.
You took me in, you gave me love and we will never part
Because I'm blind with just my eyes, I see you in my heart.
