A pair of adorable pink-nosed puppies at the Humane Society of Tampa Bay are officially looking for their fur-ever family--but adopters need to meet some special requirements.
"WE ARE LOOKING FOR SPECIAL PEOPLE," a post by the Humane Society of Tampa Bay starts off, furthering that the shelter is looking for a family or two to adopt the pups that are also willing to commit to their unique needs.
"HSTB is looking for someone, or two special people, to adopt two adorable blind and deaf puppies! Lily and Lando, 2-month-old Catahoula Leopard Dog mixes, as cute as they are, will come with difficulties and need a lot of patience and special care."
According to the post, as a result of bad breeding the puppies were both born deaf and with hypothalamic eyes.
"Lily and Lando are a cautionary tale about irresponsible breeders. Their eye condition is congenital, meaning it was passed down through poor breeding standards. While white dogs can often be deaf, Lily and Lando act as one of the many reasons irresponsible breeding is detrimental."
"HSTB is asking for someone who has experience with blind or deaf dogs or is willing to do the research and understands the undertaking that will come with adopting these two fun-loving puppies."
While the post was made only a few hours ago, the duo will officially up for adoption tomorrow, Thursday, April 6. Puppy adoption fees at HSTB are listed as $250, however, senior citizens 65+ may be eligible to receive 50% off any adoption fee with proof of age.
If you think you may be a good match for both or either of these sweet babies, you can find out how to apply for adoption on the humane society's official website here.
