Heather has recently passed her AKC Good Citizen Test and has earned a basic obedience certificate! Heather is a very sweet, very smart, one and a half year old, deaf, pit bull terrier. She is as fun and affectionate and lovable as any hearing dog and house broken and crate trained too! Deaf dogs are taught all the same commands that you would teach a hearing dog, except you use hand signals instead of words. Heather has learned hand signals for come, sit, stay, no, heel and ‘down”. She is a wonderful girl – fun, loyal and smart. Heather gets along well with the three other dogs she is living with too.
She may be too active for a very quiet dog but if your dog is playful, Heather would make a great match. Before applying to adopt Heather please read through the information supplied by deafdogsrock.com. It will give you a good idea about the joys and challenges of living with a deaf dog. Heather is currently staying in a foster home so if you are interested in meeting her, please submit an online application.
She is located in Vineland, NJ at the Cumberland Co. SPCA. To fill out an adoption application for Heather, please click here.
