Applesauce is a little 5 year old black and tan double dapple girl.  She is blind and deaf, which sometimes happens with double dapples.  She has Microphthalmia, where the eyes are abnormally small and sometimes only partially formed.  Her foster mom thinks that she may be able sense changes in shadows, light and dark, but she doesn’t actually “see”.  She doesn’t react to noises at all and does her “hearing” through vibrations.
Applesauce is getting to know her foster home and can make her way around without much trouble, even going to the door to go outside.
She loves to be held and will sleep in your arms or beside you on the couch and bed.  Right now, she is letting the other fosters dogs know she is here and not to get too close, especially when she wants to sleep.  She’s not mean but will give them a warning growl.  She probably has never learned how to play.  
Applesauce has had all her vaccinations, has been spayed, and is heartworm negative so she is ready to find her forever home!  She is an amazing little girl and would love to meet you!
