Update: Casper has been adopted.
This is Casper and he was picked up months ago by a nice woman named Valerie who was just going to foster him until she could find him a home. Unfortunately for her weeks turned into months and with her two toddlers, 2 other Pit Bulls and a cat she just can’t keep a third dog. Valerie does not have the time to train her foster dog and she has had no luck finding a deaf puppy a home where she lives. She is desperately seeking a rescue, experienced foster or a dog savvy person who can give this deaf puppy the time he deserves to learn to communicate and be in an environment that fosters learning and manners.
Casper needs either a RESCUE, FOSTER or a FOREVER home so this sweet lady can get back to her family and her own dogs. Can you help her. She did the right thing now it is time for someone in CA to step forward and help her out. Casper would love a forever home. Yes he is deaf but guess what? The fact that he is deaf does not slow him down one bit in fact he loves to learn new things.
From the Foster Mom Valerie: Casper the friendly puppy gets along with other dogs, children and cats. He is a total love bug but when he gets bored he does like to get into things (most puppies do get into stuff when they are bored). He has no aggression issues and he loves to play. Valerie feels this pup needs to be in training with someone who can take the time to make him a good canine citizen. This sweet boy is UTD on shots and he has been neutered. He has just recived his monthly dosage of Frontline. The dog is 1 year old and up-to-date on all vaccinations and was neutered a few months ago. He loves to play fetch and tug-a-war. His favorite ball is a Kong. He sits with a hand command and stays if he isn’t too excited.
This pup is located in Stockton, CA. If you are a FOSTER, RESCUE or a person who is available to ADOPT and who can help Valerie out by taking this pup off her hands so she can get back to spending time with her family and dogs please call Valerie Norton at 209-518-5823 or email her at Vnorton84@gmail.com
Note from Christina Deaf Dogs Rock – It is never a good idea to play Tug of War with a deaf dog, a bully breed or a 12 month old puppy especially when there are small children in the household. You should also refrain from letting the dog be mouthy with your clothing or your hands because this could very well end badly for an adult or small child. If a child or small adult were wearing a scarf or a hoodie and the dog gets a hold of the scarf, a small child can be dragged and choked and needless to say this can end very badly. Teaching a dog that Tug of War is okay is like telling the dog it is okay to “not let go”…it is never ever okay to “not let go” or to be mouthy or bite. Teaching the dog the “leave it” game with toys and treats is a much better and safer alternative. A ball or a Kong is also a much better choice.
