    Spinner is blind and deaf.

    He got his name because he cannot walk in a straight line. Instead, he goes around in circles because he cannot see or hear.

    Spinner is a 4-month-old chihuahua/terrier mix under the foster care of Leah Hill. Leah is a member of Carroll County Animal Support, which she says can be a “full-time job.”

    Her other full-time job is at Carroll County Dispatch.
