MESA, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

A retired woman from Queen Creek came to the rescue of a partially blind dog who was still at the animal shelter after an adoption event.

Patti Mooers adopted Bryan on Wednesday from the Arizona Humane Society. She and her husband are big German shepherd lovers and saw the story on 3TV's Good Morning Arizona.

The 5-year-old dog was pet No. 314 after 313 pets were adopted thanks to the Zappos.com and Best Friends Animal Society Home for the Pawlidayz event during the holiday weekend.

Another family met with Bryan on Wednesday before the woman did and decided it was not a good fit.

Mooers and her husband had experienced with a disabled animal before so Bryan's blindness isn't an issue. They brought him home and he seems to be adjusting quickly.

"He's smelling everything. He bumps into a few things but he seems real content," Mooers said.

Mooers said she hopes that others can see that even though he has disabilities, Bryan still is loving and can be a great pet.

"Just go meet them and see if it's a good fit. They have so much love to give and they deserve a good home," Mooers said.
