Silas is a senior chihuahua mix who weighs 15 pounds. He has had it rough. He was hit by a car, causing him to lose an eye. He also has some vision impairment in the other eye. He gets around well but we use baby gates to keep him safe. SAAP has given him a lot of love and his eye has been recovering very well.

Silas is also diabetic. He needs insulin shots twice daily so he needs an adopter comfortable giving him shots (it's really easy!) and someone willing to take him to get his bloodwork checked every so often to make sure he's feeling his best. His levels are great right now but he'll need another check in 4-6 months.

Silas is a sweet, low energy guy with a lot of love to give. Because his vision is impaired, he can be grumpy when startled, but is otherwise very easy going. You can usually find him sleeping on a cozy bed. He'd do best in a calm home that will give him the life he's always deserved.
