Here’s a wonderful story of a blind little Pomeranian who was rescued from a puppy mill, survived cancer, and is now an Internet sensation.

Jack’s life, like those of many popular breeds, started in a wire cage. Yup, the cute little dog was rescued from a puppy mill in Indiana. Evidence of his dark beginnings is in his canine teeth, which show signs of wear and tear. As a puppy mill dog, Jack developed progressive retinal atrophy, which will eventually rob him of his eyesight entirely.

But Jack doesn’t need to be able to see us to know that we love him.

Now Jack spends his days updating his Facebook page and advocating for puppy mill awareness. He also tries to sneak food samples at the pet boutique he helps his human friend work at, but what he doesn’t know is that even though he can’t see us, we can definitely see him.
