Dog Who Couldn't See Or Hear Finds The Perfect Dad

For Penelope, there was a light at the end of the tunnel. Even if she couldn't actually see it.

As a rescue from Miami-Dade Animal Services, where the sheer number of animals spells the end for so many, she found a lifeline.

A Canadian group, having heard of the plight of so many animals in Miami, sent a delegation to help.

Dog Tales Rescue and Sanctuary brought dozens of dogs back to Ontario.

Among them?

An old shepherd mix named Penelope who could neither see nor hear. A dog like that was hardly expected to find her way out of Miami.

But in Canada, she saw the light.

Hundreds of thousands of people viewed and shared her story. The organization sifted through countless adoption inquiries, until Penelope made the call.

Dog Tales says she had "an incredibly strong connection" with a man named Jeff.

She's even taking her halo along - a makeshift device that keeps Penelope from bumping her head into things.

It's pretty much the same halo her new owner wears. Only on the inside.
