Chloe was found on the side of the road by a shelter volunteer in 2009 who contacted Weimaraner Rescue of the South (WRS), even though she thought Chloe might not survive. Chloe’s eyes were so badly infected that she was blind, her body was covered with open sores, and she was heartbreakingly thin. WRS rushed her to the vet and was told she probably would not make it through the night. Chloe hung in there though, and the vet diagnosed a rare fungal infection, blastomycosis, as the cause of Chloe’s condition. With treatment underway, WRS contacted a foster home with experience caring for special needs dogs. They agreed to take Chloe in. Today, they tell the story that when Chloe arrived, they thought WRS had brought her to them so she could die in a home. Despite how bad she looked and how sick she still was, Chloe knew she WAS home. She immediately attached herself to her new Daddy and would not leave his side. Since she was blind, she would touch his feet and follow him everywhere. A month later, Chloe’s eyes were removed, as they could not be saved. But she started healing and looking more like a Weimaraner. Her foster parents fell in love with her and soon adopted her. Now, she gets around just fine—even running up and down the stairs. When Daddy is home, though, she likes to let him “help” her onto the bed to snuggle. Chloe loves to carry around “babies”—stuffed toys that she has to have in her mouth most of the time. Chloe’s daddy serves our country in the Navy, and now Chloe is ready to serve as well. She recently became a certified therapy dog and looks forward to working with Daddy when he returns from deployment.
