Marlie’s Happy Tail

Marlie's Happy Tail

Marlie’s Happy Tail was submitted by Kelley Poole. Thanks Kelley for sharing Marlie’s Happy Tail with Deaf Dogs Rock. According to my deaf dogs Nitro and Bud, Marlie totally ROCKS! My fiancée Justin and I have a 100% deaf American bulldog named Marlie who is truly the love of our lives. Marlie’s Happy Tail begins the first day when we went to the house that had her for sale. As soon as she spotted us, she escaped out from under the fence they were keeping her in and she made a bee-line straight for me. If we walked away and called her, she came running after us. Originally we didn’t pick her, she picked us! We happily loaded her into our truck and headed for her first outing, a birthday party for our friends’ 1 year old son. Marlie was so well-behaved and sweet that everyone who met her,  instantly […]

Meet Francis and Her Happy Tail!

Meet Francis and Her Happy Tail!

Meet Frances, she is a beautiful three year old deaf boxer. She is a rescue and is one of the loves of our lives. This is the story of Francis. When she was born the breeder kept her in a cage for the first months of her life which is why the rescue thinks she is so small.  She was extremely lucky to be rescued by a Boxer Rescue but like many rescues it was a bit over crowded and she was kept in an area with 7 other boxers. It’s kind of crazy to think about it now but she was so nervous around all the other dogs she learned to sleep standing up. The family that adopted her next thought they had time to train a deaf dog  but in reality they did not. She was kept in a small mud room with a doggy door with another adult […]

Meet Sweet Sydney Leanne

Meet Sweet Sydney Leanne

Sydney Leanne is our deaf nine month old mini Australian shepherd (Aussie) that was released by her previous owners to Animal Control because they did not expect her to grow so big. At least that was the story they gave Animal Control when they released her to them. When we went to the shelter to visit Sydney, she was frightened and hiding in the corner of her kennel. It broke my heart to see her so scared. Since her time was up at the shelter, we couldn’t stand the thought of them putting her to sleep. We just had to save her and take her home with us. We rescued Sydney on 8 -11-11. From the minute we walked out of the shelter on our way out to the car, Sydney became a totally different dog. All of a sudden she was this happy dog (I suspect it was because […]

Duke The Amazing Deaf Bulldog’s Happy Tail

Duke The Amazing Deaf Bulldog's Happy Tail

This story was written by Meghan Coates about her Duke her Amazing Deaf Bulldog. I’ve had a dog  my entire life. My oldest fur-child is Wally. Wally is a Chihuahua mix who has been with me for almost eleven years. In 2008, my husband decided that he wanted a dog as his wedding present, specifically a bulldog. We didn’t have much knowledge about the breed or on how to find a breeder/rescue and choose a pup. One day we just happened to be walking around our local Mall when we spotted a man with a beautiful bulldog.  We asked him where his dog came from. He gave us the name of the breeder and the breeders website so we went on line to check out the website to see if there were any bulldog puppies available. The breeder’s website looked respectable enough. There were lots of pictures and feed back […]

Ellie's Happy Tail

It give me great pleasure to share Ellie’s Happy Tail to all of our DDR readers because she was featured for months on DeafDogsRock.com and I was so excited when I got the email she had bee adopted. Enjoy Ellie’s Happy Tail and thanks to all of you for sharing her listing so she could find her forever home! ~ Christina Lee – Deaf Dogs Rock   Story submitted by Ellie’s new mom Devon Wiggins of Florence, SC. My sister Ashley and I already have two rescue dogs between us–Sadie, a border collie mix, and Annabelle, a Boxer/American Bulldog mix. The two of them are a package deal, but Annabelle is getting a little older and I thought it might be time to introduce an additional companion for Sadie into the mix. Ashley had recently started doing research on Pit Bulls and we both had our hearts set on the […]

Jackson’s Happy Tail

Jackson's Happy Tail

It  has been over a year or so ago since I spoke to Jeff on the phone about his new puppy Jackson. I also was in communication with Jeff’s mom Vicki because she was worried about him and she asked me to call Jeff. She wanted me to talk to Jeff about some of the challenges he might face in the future when raising his new deaf puppy so he could be prepared. I knew Jeff would make a great deaf dog daddy and advocate for Jackson. Today it gives me great pleasure to feature Jackson’s Happy Tail written by Jeff. Thanks Jeff for taking the time to send Jackson’s story to us here at Deaf Dogs Rock and we are so happy we could help you on your amazing journey with your deaf Australian heeler Jackson. Rock on Jeff and Jackson, rock on! ~ Christina Lee – Deaf Dogs […]

Keller’s Happy Tail

Keller's Happy Tail

By Jessica Bailey I work at a grooming salon as a bather and have ALWAYS a wanted a dog. I am now 19 years old, and I have had cats all of my life.  I decided that since I was working at a grooming salon and never had a dog, I was going to convince my parents to let me get one. My mother is allergic to dogs so I had to keep that in mind.  I have a special place in my heart for dogs that most people aren’t particularly “fans” of. For example, an under-bite, silly eyes, no hair, three legs, blind, deaf, doesn’t matter to me. I think it makes the dog even better.  With that also in mind, I took to Petfinder.com.  I looked at some dogs but none were standing out to me. I then decided to search under Chinese Crested breed. I have always […]

Stella’s Happy Tail and CGC

Stella's Happy Tail and CGC

Last year Stella was awarded her AKC Canine Good Citizen Certification and her mama Heather has a very Happy Tail to tell. Stella’s Happy Tail: My boyfriend (now husband) and I decided to get our first dog back in 2006. She is a beautiful black tri Australian Shepherd. Through my research when looking for our puppy, I came across a couple sites that taught about the merle to merle breeding and how it affects the puppies that are born. I had no idea! Since then, I knew I wanted to rescue and care for a lethal white whether it be deaf, blind or both. As time went on, I would research it once in a while and look for puppies but the time was never right. This past summer, I came across an ad on Craigslist featuring an 11 month old deaf Aussie named Angel. She was beautiful. My husband […]
