Ken Pope, Ph.D., ABPP

A vicious attack took out one of this little dog's eyes and left him blind in the other. He was rushed to surgery to save his life, and during the procedure he suffered a brain bleed that led to seizures which are now controlled through meds.

When we were told Zeno needed a home, he jumped into our hearts, and we drove to another state to pick him up. Showing amazing spirit and resilience, he immediately made friends with the other special needs cats and dogs who live in our home. Taking less than a day to learn the house and the yard, he races joyfully around both, as fast as any of the others.

Here's Zeno:
