This is Joffre. He’s a dachshund and he’s blind. He belongs to friends of mine (I mentioned them once before, in reference to Selma Blair’s one-eyed dog).
I met Joffre for the first time today, and he gets around remarkably well. Obviously his other senses are pretty sharp, so he rarely bumps into things. He is constantly drawn to sound, though. He apparently gets along better with humans than other dogs. In the dog park, his owners have taken to saying “Joffre, doggy” to warn their pet of incoming dogs.
