Meet sweet Polar. In the past Street Dog Rescue had some space at the local shelter but times are changing and they have lost their space. With that being said deaf dog Polar here needs a FOSTER Family to step up and foster him until a forever home can be found. If you are thinking of adopting a special needs dog but just aren’t sure of the challenges that come along with having a deaf dog, a foster situation might just be perfect for you and your family. You could foster Polar and if it works out you can fill out the adoption papers. If it doesn’t work out then you have still saved a life of a special needs dog and according to my deaf dog Nitro, if you do that then you totally ROCK!
Now a few words from Polar the deaf yellow lab in Houston, TX:
Hello Everyone! My foster Mom called me Polar, because when I was just a little guy, I was a bit chubby and I looked just like a baby polar bear. Now, Im all grown up and I’ve slimmed down to an attractive 35lbs, so I look like a small blonde lab. I was born deaf, but if you meet me, you probably wouldnt know Im deaf, except that I will wag my tail and come over to you, even if you call me by another name.
The funny thing is that most people think I am listening to them, because when I was young, I had some weakness in my neck muscles, so my head tilts slightly to the left. My neck is fine now, but it looks as though I am cocking my head to hear you. I’m about 4 yrs old and I love everyone I meet. I have had all my shots, I am neutered, heartworm negative, house-trained and crate-trained.
Do you want to know a secret? I love other pooches. I get along with other dogs perfectly, and I dont mind being around cats either. I am very good at walking on a leash. I’m working on following sign language commands and I’m a very fast learner. Everyone comments they can tell that I am a very happy dog and I love playing with my foster siblings; however, I’d really like to find my forever home.
By the way, I have a very cute brother named Parker, and he is looking for a home, too. He is my best friend in the whole world. If you happen to have room for both of us, that would be so great! You can see that we both like to hang out in the same crate, so if you take both of us, we only take up the space of one! If you would like to adopt or foster me, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The free shelter space which Street Dog has used for the past twelve years is no longer available and the resident pups need to be placed in permanent homes as soon as possible. Please take a look at all of the pups listed on our Petfinder site, www.streetdog.petfinder.com, maybe you could love one of them? Also, you can check out our Facebook page at: www.facebook.com/streetdogrescuehouston. We have more pics of each dog on FB.
