|Wow...you are in a really tough situation. What really breaks my heart is that special needs dogs especially those up there in years have a really hard time getting adopted. One thing I know is that once a dog becomes blind and has a chance to adapt to familiar surroundings, they adapt really well.
It sounds like taking her in will be too tough for you too. Here's a little bit of thought and wisdom...whatever happens, you can't make this your problem or make it feel it is some how your fault if your brother gives up on this dog. It doesn't sound like a good situation. These kinds of situations break my heart. With time, attention, care, and love, I do believe a dog any age has a chance to be happy and be a wonderful pet.
Does she get along with your dogs or is she well socialized?
If you want to try and do a little homework, you may find out if there are poodle rescues some where in your area. The good thing is poodles are a popular breed and she may, just maybe have a chance. But I feel like it's something your brother should do.
Again, sorry you are stuck in this situation. I'll be thinking of you and more importantly, saying a little prayer for the dog
