I see With My heart


River was found wandering all alone in Texas. The kind man who found him knew something was wrong with his eyes. River was then driven to a rescue organization in Tennessee, where he had an amazing foster mom. She took him to the vet, and the doctor said that because his eyes were so sick,
they would need to remove them both.
