Leah – MI

Leah - MI

Meet sweet Leah! If you are as big of a boxer lover as we are here at Deaf Dogs Rock then you will want to meet Leah. She is just 11 months old and this is such a great age to keep her training going. She is a total love bug. She is currently located with Ruff Start Boxer Rescue in MI. If you have friends who have been waiting for a white female boxer then Leah may be the girl for them.   The Rescue is looking for a loving home where she can also live with another nice dog like herself. She loves to play so another boxer or playful breed of dog would be perfect for her to have a doggy BFF.  She needs a companion dog so she won’t get lonely and she needs to go to a home where she can live as an inside […]

Finn – VA – Adopted

Finn - VA - Adopted

Update 6-18-2015: Finn has been adopted by his foster mommy Rita. He is officially off the market and considered a “failed foster” pup! Congratulations Rita and Finn! Since November is Adopt A Senior Shelter Dog Month lets share Finn’s listing with everyone we know okay? Sharing is caring! Thanks. Christina – DDR Meet sweet Finn! He was found running at large in a remote area of Pulaski County. He was emaciated, had lost a lot of fur, and had some scrapes and abrasions. He was always very quiet at the shelter and the noise of the other dogs never seemed to bother him, but I wasn’t 100% sure he was deaf until I brought him home to foster. We guess him to be about 8-10 years old, but he is still very spunky and will wrestle with my younger dog on occasion. He had blood work done at the vet […]

Chaplin – NC – Adopted

Chaplin - NC - Adopted

Update 6-09-2015: GREAT NEWS! Chaplin has been ADOPTED! Update 1-27-2015: Chaplin is back at the shelter so he can do meet and greets on a daily basis. He may need to be the only dog in the home (see the comments from his foster home). So Chaplin is now 5 years old and he needs a HERO to come and save him. From Chaplin: Hi! I’m Chaplin! A nice person found me and saved me from life on the streets. While in that home, they discovered that I am deaf. With time and patience I have learned hand signals and body language like sit, stay/wait, come, down and release (which is my favorite because it means “go play!”). I really enjoy going on walks and runs with my people. I am very obedient and a fast learner. I also really like meeting new people too! I’m crate trained and house […]

Rascal – CA

Rascal - CA

Rascal is a 1-year-old, 46 lb., spayed female Pit Bull & Australian Cattle Dog mix with a short, white and black coat. She is a sweet, loving, and happy dog who loves to meet new people and get lots of pets from them (especially belly rubs!). Rascal has excellent leash manners and enjoys going on long walks with her favorite person as well as playing with her doggy friends. The shelter’s experience and time with her so far indicates that she and her new adopter would benefit greatly from an obedience class. In this case, it is required of her new adopter, but she is expected to excel in class as she is very smart and treat-motivated.     If you have any children or resident pets be sure to speak with an adoption counselor to make sure she’d be a good match. Ask for Rascal using her ID number […]

Trent – OR

Trent - OR

Trent is a very loyal sweet dog in the home. He really could use a family that has time to play with him. He loves chasing balls or catching a frisbee in the air. He also could really use a home with lots of wide open land to run around in. Trent needs to be able to get out and roam a bit in an environment that is safe for him to do so. He is 10 1/2, but you would think he is 2 when it comes to how much energy he can still put out in a day. Trent has slowed down a bit and usually sleeps most of the day, but if given the opportunity he could go none stop all day for days as well. He likes to be very active. He is in good health and has years of life left in him.   Please […]

Jagger-TX

Jagger-TX

Meet adorable Jagger! He is a beautiful deaf dog (maltipoo which is a Maltese and a Poodle mix) that wants somebody to love! He is in a home that can no longer care for him, and he’s too sweet to end up in a shelter. He is very loving, but prefers to be the alpha dog. He can be very protective (Note from Christina: with structure and Nothing In Life Is Free training this can easily be changed).  He is fine with kids, but definitely not cats. He is a one person dog, so expect to be smothered with love by this guy!         So much cuteness in ONE deaf dog! If you can give Jagger a loving and safe home contact Michelle at Lildusty724@aol.com Please use the buttons below to share – it can change the life of a deaf dog!

Auggie – VA – Adopted

Auggie - VA - Adopted

Update: Auggie has been adopted by a local friend Hannah Seagle. Because someone else sponsored Auggie, Deaf Dogs Rock will be sponsoring HALF his obedience training fees for 3 months so Hannah can go to training twice a week and they can work as a team to build a strong training foundation for Auggie. Since he is only 9-10 months old this will benefit him and set him up to be a great Canine Good Citizen. Thanks to all of you who support our efforts to save one deaf dog at a time. According to deaf dog Auggie, you all totally ROCK! ~ Christina Lee – DDR Sweet Auggie is a Deaf puppy who is only around 8 months old. He belonged to an elderly couple who because of health reason’s could not care or train Auggie. now Auggie finds himself in the Angels of Assisi Rescue here in Roanoke […]
