Garbanzo – KS – Adopted

Garbanzo - KS - Adopted

Update 2-22-2015: Great News! Garbanzo has been ADOPTED! Meet our Deaf Dogs Rock Star of The Day Garbanzo! He is located in Overland Park, KS. Garbanzo is a big pup and he’s clumsy and goofy and all kinds of fun. He is nothing but love and he will bring you more joy than you can imagine with just the simplest act. He is kennel trained, people friendly, seemingly cat friendly but gaining more curiosity each day so we are assessing this, very dog friendly, just all around friendly! Garbanzo is deaf, but don’t let that deter you, he already knows some commands and he is easily able to be motivated with positive reinforcement training. From his foster mommy Angie: What you will need is the ability to handle lots of love, the desire to experience extreme happiness, a little bit of patience, the willingness to have a whole lot of […]

Winter Dogs

Winter Dogs

We had a winter storm here at Deaf Dogs Rock Headquarters yesterday. We dug out today but we had frigid temps here in Virginia for the past two days. Since my husband Chris and I were pretty much home bound we decided to take the two deaf boxers Bud, Nitro, and our hearing Shepherd Bailey out in the 14″ inches of fresh snow in the front pasture this morning. Even though we were only out there for about 10 minutes (because it was 15 degrees and we were all freezing and wet), I managed to get some fun shots of the boys running and having fun. I hope you all enjoy these photos of our deafies as much as they had fun running and freezing their little tooshies off! Happy Winter! ~ Christina, Nitro and Bud – Deaf Dogs Rock Bud looks so beautiful running against the white snow! Nitro […]

Meet Grits. He is a 10 month old neutered terrier mix who is Deaf. He is located at the Humane Society of Union County, NC. Does Grits have any special medical conditions, illness, or dietary requirements?  Grits is deaf, and has sub-par vision in direct sunlight. He does ok in dark environments. (Genetic jump causing low pigmentation & deafness, blue colored eyes and blond/white coat similar if not Merle). He is sensitive to high quantities of protein, makes him gassy. Currently feeding him ‘Natures Recipe’ which has been a little better with his gas. Recommend small or low protein treats for training. Any certain likes or dislikes that are apparent? Grits loves to socialize and play with other dogs, in most cases if introduced in a neutral zone he wins them over quickly.

Louie – MI – Adopted

Louie - MI - Adopted

Update 2-11-2015: Louie is a FAILED FOSTER – From Louie’s foster mom Annie: you can go ahead and remove Louie from the site. We have been doing some different training with him and are making progress towards integrating him better with our pack. Thanks! From his foster family: We rescued a deaf dog and fostered him through the tough “puppy” stage. We are now looking for the perfect home for him (we’ve been very picky and don’t want him going to just anyone). Here is more about him: Louie is a sweet 23-month-old Catahoula and is neutered. Louie is deaf, but that doesn’t seem to slow him down. He is definitely a high drive dog and has a tremendous amount of energy. He is always looking for something or someone to play with. Louie currently lives with two dogs and has done well with the other dogs he has met. He can […]

Precious – CA

Precious - CA

Update 2-10-2015: Precious is still available for adoption. Please share her she has been one of our longest running adoption listings. She deserves a loving home. Thanks. ~ Christina Lee – Deaf Dogs Rock Update 12-14-2013: Note from Christina Lee of Deaf Dogs Rock: I did receive some questions regarding Precious and if she liked men, cats and small dogs but also could she be around other dogs since she had been a bait dog. The rescue is looking for a home for Precious where she is the only dog.  Here is the response I got back from Addie Daddio from Love That Dog Hollywood about Precious: She does love humans (men and women) and she is a lap dog, kissy bull. We are still working with her introductions to larger dogs. She is not good with cats or small dogs. (She thinks small dogs are cats.) She has been introduced […]

Gracie – CA

Gracie - CA

Update 02-10-2015: Gracie is still available for adoption. She is in Southern CA. She is now around 2 years old. She has been so patiently waiting for her forever home. Looking for a new best friend? Look no further. Gracie loves people…. she rolls over on her back for belly rubs and is a world-class snuggler! Two year old Gracie is quite active so she enjoys walks and games of fetch but her main mission in life is to spend quality time with her humans. She’s a smart deaf girl who knows her commands (sit, stay, come, no….), is schooled in going potty outside and will blossom even more with additional training. Gracie is the perfect combination: beauty and love, but needs to be the only dog in the home. Unconditional love – years and years and years of it. For info on how you can make Gracie part of […]

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 […]
