"Isaac, First Day In His New Forever Home" by 

This is Isaac, he was rescued from the local pound here in Leitchfield Ky. We rescued him at 14 weeks. Isaac is an Australian Shepherd. He is partially deaf and almost blind. He is the victim of very bad breeding , which is the reason for so many problems. At first I thought he was a mix but when I showed him to a breeder here she told me that he was pure, but the victim of a lousy breeder. I was told he is what they call a “Lethal White” which is the result of breeding a merle to a merle that can produce some beautiful pups but around 25% of pups will have problems as Isaac does but many times much worse. They will destroy those pups at birth, therefore the name! He was left on a chain at 9 weeks of age when his previous owners just moved away and left him there. Their next door neighbor didn’t help him or call anyone for 4 days. Poor little guy was skin and bones with no food or water left for him. The day he picked me out, was the first time I had ever been to our local shelter, went there looking for a female adult large breed such as a Doberman, because I had just lost my best girl of 19 years. I felt him looking at me even before I saw him, fell in love with him, went home told my husband about him, he made it clear to me that I must have lost my mind, because Isaac was everything that I swore I would never own. He was male, plus coat, medium size, puppy, well that went well. Was there early the next morning to take him home, I found out that day was to be his last day there, lucky lucky us! He is the most wonderful little guy we could ever hope for. He thinks we are pretty cool too!
