Just For Looks

There has been such an incredible response to If You Could HeaR How I HeaR, that it inspired me to create another video about deaf dogs. Along with the dogs featured for adoption, I have included a handful of deaf dogs who share their lives with some special people. Enjoy Just For Looks, and make sure to check out the websites and thoughts at the bottom of the page for additional information.

Brook D. adopted Cupid from a high kill shelter in Florida and the following is in excerpt of a story that she sent to me. “Over the last three months, Cupid has learned to read and obey all signals. He helps me make my rounds with all the rescue dogs and plays with them during free play each day. Deaf dogs often learn by watching humans do things also. In the last month, Cupid has learned to open doors by turning round door knobs, and pushing doors open and closed. I firmly believe there is nothing he can’t do.

Brook is fostering Bravo, who is available for adoption, and will be taking both Cupid and Bravo to their first dog show this month. I say “Go Brook!” Good luck Bravo and Cupid, we can’t wait to hear how you do.

Morgan S. has this to say about Norton,

Norton with friends Gracie & Lily

“Almost 9 years ago I was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus. Over the past 3 years I have been on various medications that are very harsh on your body. It’s hard for me to get out and exercise. My Lupus affects mostly my joints (hands and knees). Norton came into our life when I had decided to go off the harsh meds, little did I know what he would do for me. Norton is an active dog that LOVES walks. Well when we first got him I could only walk to the end of the block and back to the house, now days, approximately 9 months later, Norton and I walk almost every day about one mile, sometimes 1 1/2 miles. He’s given me some of my life back, and in turn we gave him his. He and I have a very special bond, I feel as though Norton sees right through me. He knows when I don’t feel good and has a calm gentle demeanor.”

Thanks everybody!
