I love my job being CEO for Deaf Dogs Rock Inc. but some days it can just suck when you get emails and messages like Buddy here. The only thing that keeps me going day after day is knowing Chris, Nitro, and I can make a difference by saving hundreds of deaf dogs all over the country that would have been PTS if we weren’t here to network them daily.
I personally try hard to stay positive because we all know we can’t help anyone with a bad attitude. With that being said, I am asking all our Deaf Dogs Rocks Mom’s and Dads to share Buddy’s story so we can get him back to full health and into a good home. It is bad enough he was born deaf but now we can all see how neglected and abused he has been in the last 12 months.
Yes some people SUCK but it is up to us to show Buddy not all people are bad and in fact some humans totally Rock. Thanks for everything you do to help us with our mission of saving deaf dogs. ~ Christina Lee – Deaf Dogs Rock
Here is the post I just received from Angels for Animals Network on Facebook:
*Medical Dog – Agoura, CA – 4 yr. old DEAF Chi/Beagle mix Buddy was returned to the shelter by his adopter one year deaf and with severe mange**
Agoura, CA (30 miles from L.A. near Ventura County)
29525 Agoura Rd, Agoura, CA 818-991-0071
A44263701 – Buddy
4 yr. old Male
Neutered Chi/Beagle mix
From Mindi Memel:
Now this PISSES me off! Buddy was adopted from the shelter only to be returned back to the shelter exactly one year later deaf and with severe mange. His previous onwer’s reason on intake card “landlord will not allow dog”. I can’t imagine how he got this way after only one year unless he was left outside and completely neglected. He is actually better off at the Agoura shelter since they treat the mange with an outside vet and they are low kill. However, Buddy will thrive much better in an home and with him being deaf he will need a loving person who will accept him the way he is.
I will pull Buddy for any local rescue or an approved adopter. Mindi Memel
This was Buddy’s video last year…
