Dog left behind gets forever home

- UPDATE: Bryan has been adopted! Our original story is below:

Bretta Nelson says 5-year-old Bryan is mostly blind and his eye sight will only get worse over time.

"He's a good dog, you can just tell he's a little bit nervous, he's really trying to learn the ways of the world without eye sight," she said. "He does have a progressive retinal atrophy, so he's slowly losing his eye sight. He's partial blind right now, maybe sees shadows and shapes more than anything else."

The Arizona Humane Society held a four-day adoption special over Thanksgiving weekend and Bryan didn't get so lucky.

"He was the one dog remaining when it was all said and done," Nelson said. "Out of 313 pups went home, so of course it just broke our hearts."

Today, they're pushing for him to get a forever home and they may not have to try to hard.

"I live by myself and no other pets, so I'm looking to have a companion, someone I can take to the parks on the weekends," Benjamin Baker said.

We found Benjamin Baker waiting outside to meet Bryan.

"I've had a few dogs in the past and I've always had instant connections with them and I'm hoping that will happen," he said.

Bryan's adoption fee is $50 and Nelson just asks whoever takes him home is patient as he learns his way around his new home.

That is if Benjamin doesn't take him home first.
