Eastwood the Labrador was first picked up by a North Michigan stray center when he was found roving the streets in the cold. The center then passed him onto Harbor Springs’ Little Traverse Bay Humane Society. The one-year-old had a number of health problems, including being nearly blind.

Staff at the shelter believe this is why he was cruelly abandoned, although these issues could actually have been fixed. The dog suffered from entropion, a condition which sees eyelids folding inward, and had a deformed leg. Sadly, these health problems initially appeared to deter other families from adopting Eastwood.
