Have You Ever Heard of A Seeing Eye Dog?

Steuben is only 6 months old, but he’s already known a long, hard life. He was found abandoned in Ohio and taken under the wing of the Cleveland Animal Protection League (APL). When he was born, Steuben’s eyes were shrunken and had to be removed surgically.
