BLINKERS’ Rescue Story
Don’t blink, or you will miss the awesome opportunity to adopt me! I am an easy, friendly four months-old pup from Oman. I am the youngest dog in a home with seventeen foster dogs, and I am the best ‘little sis’ ever! I listen to all my older siblings, and follow all their guidance. I have started some basic training lessons, and my siblings are so proud of how fast I have learned! I love to play! I am also very well behaved. I am respectful of my foster family’s things, and I am mostly potty-trained. When I was rescued in March, I was alone in a neighborhood where dogs are frequently shot. Yes, shot, and left to die. I had a few minor wounds; my rescuers thought that maybe I had been attacked by other dogs. Otherwise, I was a totally healthy, happy girl! Any time I experience a new situation, I quickly adapt and settle-in. I am so excited to travel to the U.S., and I hope to meet you soon!
Oman is an Arab country in the southeastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula. It has wonderful national treasures, vivid landscapes… and thousands of “wadi” – or street – dogs. These wadi dogs can be seen virtually everywhere. Unfortunately, they face the same plight as dogs in many Muslim countries where they are generally viewed as unclean and not fit to be pets. Dog ownership is rare, and when they are owned, dogs are usually not allowed in the house. Pets are viewed more commonly as guard dogs who roam the outside vicinity of the property. The government doesn’t have humane animal welfare laws, and, worse yet, police have open rights to shoot “any and all” street dogs. There is no requirement that the dogs have to be a nuisance or sick; rather, they will be killed just for having the unfortunate luck of being born on the streets in Oman. It is a common practice. Many wadi dogs suffer a slow, painful death caused by festering gunshot wounds. If a gunshot does not kill them, street dogs die of disease, starvation, abuse by people, vehicles, and extreme weather conditions. In the summer, the temperature can easily soar to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Most Omani street dogs do not survive beyond the age of three.
