Hi…I have been named Treble.  I am blind, and to be quite honest, bewildered.  My wonderful saviour in Istanbul found me hiding in a hole ~ soaked, starving, and shaking with fear as you can see in this video:


I had been wandering around in this small town by the sea when I fell into a hole and hurt my leg.  I was so hungry I was actually eating mud.  My new friend found me and took me to her basement and that’s where I am now.  I actually slept for almost four days and I was almost too exhausted to eat or drink.  I am eating well now and starting to feel better.  I don’t know my age or breed but I do know I’m small (about 40 lbs.) and I’m mostly black, although I was so dirty when they found me, they probably didn’t even know what colour I am (LOL).  My only hope is getting to Canada or I’ll have to go to a shelter, where I don’t think I would fare very well and I would have no chance of being adopted.  A shelter is no life for a dog but it’s unfathomable for a blind girl like me.  I have somehow survived, so I guess my time isn’t up just yet and just knowing now what kind of a life I could have is giving me hope.  I know it’s not going to be easy but something inside me says if I find the right family, the right safe haven, I could overcome my fears and flourish.  If there is someone out there to help me, I promise my everlasting love and gratitude.

p.s.  My leg has healed.  I am all cleaned up so you can see how pretty I am.  I no longer eat mud and trust me…I’m trying to stay a million miles away from holes.

Treble will be arriving in Canada soon. If you would like more information about Treble please call our hot-line toll free at 1-866-712-8444 or email and one of our volunteers will be happy to return your call.
