Meet Belinda. She is a senior among her fellow dogs and is 8-and-a-half years old. She is a mixed-breed dog with a short, silky, black-and-white coat, and she weighs 38 pounds. Belinda, who is blind, came to the SPCA of Texas through a cruelty case. She was in really rough shape but still is as sweet and mellow as they come. She is a homebody and would love nothing more than to spend her days snoozing on a dog bed and being by her human’s side. She may bump into walls once in a while, but she still gets around just fine. She needs a calm home without kids under age 12 and a securely fenced back yard where she can roam freely, as leash-walking is not an option due to her blindness. Belinda will do well with other furry companions as long as they are calm and laidback like her. If you’re looking for a couch potato to share your lazy days with and you don’t mind that she is blind, then she’s the one for you. Belinda is waiting to meet you at the SPCA of Texas’ Jan-Rees Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas.

In an effort to reduce the potential for spread of COVID-19, the SPCA of Texas’ shelters, clinics, mobile adoption and mobile wellness events remain closed to the public until further notice. Adoptions are available by appointment only. Adopters will need to submit an adoption inquiry form in order to begin the tele-adoption process and schedule an appointment to complete the adoption.
