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 […]

Dessa - TX - Adopted

Update 3-4-2015: Dessa has been adopted! Meet sweet Dessa. She is in need of a loving home with someone who will lover her, keep her safe, and be her advocate. If a home is not found soon she needs a rescue to help get her to safety. As you can see from these photos Dessa is good with other dogs.   Denton Texas – From Debra Meyer’s – Dessa was rescued off the street in Odessa, Texas. The girl that rescued Dessa brought her to Denton in hopes of finding her a home. After a couple of months, this girl contacted me about helping her. I agreed.

I also learned from the vet that   Dessa is deaf. The […]

Rover – NC – Adopted

Rover - NC - Adopted

Update 2-24-2015: Rock Star Rover has been ADOPTED! Meet Rover! He is a total ROCKER DOG! Check out his photos! He could be a dog model in commercials! Rover is a very handsome 2.5 year old deaf dog looking for a forever home with a new best friend. Rover is currently at the SPCA Animal Shelter in Elizabeth City N.C. In March 2014, he was roaming through a local cemetery when an Animal Control Officer picked him up and brought him to the Shelter. He’s a friendly affectionate guy with a rather laid back demeanor, however he does like to play with his toys. Rover is a little selective about his canine friends, but is good with kids and people of all ages. Rover’s large ears are his mark of distinction which is a bit ironic because he is deaf. Rover spent some time with a foster family who found […]

Lucy – MD

Lucy - MD

Lucy is a highly social, deaf American Bulldog that is two years old. She is easily learning hand signals and she knows the “sit” cue–fist held up, and she often offers default sits. During a short training session, she quickly learned that four-paws-on-the floor pays, and she also was learning a “leave it” cue. It would be beneficial for Lucy to have an adopter/foster who is used to operant conditioning and can establish a “marker” for her.  Lucy is highly food motivated. Reinforcing desired behaviors gets those behaviors quickly repeated with Lucy. At times, she can become overly aroused and bite the leash. Yet, shaping the absence of leash biting–by using a high rate of reinforcement when she is calmly walking–has proven successful. Lucy needs more mental stimulation through positive reinforcement training then she’s currently receiving. Of course, she likes to play, chase and fetch balls and hang out with people. She […]

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 […]
