SARASOTA, FL (WWSB)- This week's pet of the week is Linda from the Akita Rescue of Florida.
She's a special needs dog, but doesn't show it. "Although blind, it only takes minutes for her to case and memorize an area," according to her handler Kevin.
Her ears and nose take over for her lack of sight.
Linda prefers to be the only dog in the house because she cannot read the body language of other dogs. But she does great with young people, 12 and up.
If you would like to meet Linda or one of our other 60+ Akitas, call the Akita Rescue Society of Florida at (603)289-8899 or visit their website at www.arsf.org
