Worman took Rambo in as an emergency foster through Alaskan Animal Rescue Friends when he was only 8 months old. Rambo has Oculoskeletal Dysplasia, a type of dwarfism that makes him prone to cataracts, retinal dysplasia, shortened limbs, and elbow, hip and spinal issues. Rambo is almost completely blind, but that doesn’t stop him from being the happy, adorable, playful puppy that he is!

“When I first brought him home, one of my dogs immediately befriended him, and I think that helped him to get over some of his timidity,” Worman told The Dodo. “He seems to have developed a sense of where everything is in the house, and really does get around quite well.”

Worman’s two other dogs, Maddy and Willow, also foster fails, took to Rambo immediately! They accepted him right into the fold. Their playtime is where Rambo really shines! Worman is amazed by how confident Rambo is in spite of his blindness.
