Meet adoptable deaf dog Bub who is looking for a loving home where he will be cherished, loved and kept safe at all times.
From his caregiver: Let me begin by saying that re-homing my Bub is definitely the hardest thing I have ever had to do in my life. He is my very sweet almost 90 pound lap dog and has been one of my greatest joys in life. I want him to go to a loving home that will be patient and gentle with him, as he has separation anxiety, especially when in a new place.
Bub also has a physical deformation that he was born with called Ectrodactyly. His front right paw is a little “lobster claw” and he uses this to lean on things and me when he is sitting next to me. This doesn’t really inhibit him from getting around, he still runs crazy fast! The reason I am trying to re-home him is that he and my female boxer started getting into fights about a year ago. I have exhausted many options so it didn’t have to come to this, but for the safety of the dogs I believe it is now necessary.
He generally gets along with other dogs he meets on walks/at parks, but he MAY have to be the only dog at home. My female has endless amounts of energy and no concept of personal space, so she gets into his face and that is when he snaps at her. But when shes giving him the space he needs, they are the best of friends and play all day. Since being deaf makes him nervous about the world he can sometimes be timid when meeting new people. But give him about 10 seconds and get down on his level and he will love you forever.
I have never had a problem with him getting along with people. He loves to be a couch dog and only sometimes will venture out into the backyard to sun bathe. While most of his time is spent trying to snuggle with you on the couch, he does love going on walks. He has access to a dogdoor so he is only partially house trained. He has never had to “hold it” while I’ve been gone and has always had the option of going outside whenever needed. He is silly, loving and loyal. I must stress that he does have a lot going against him (physical deformity, maybe needing to be the only dog in home, separation anxiety and needing further help with that if he is the only dog) but he is completely worth it! I have tried to be as honest as possible with this because I only want the best for him! I want him to be loved and to be taken care of! I want somebody committed to giving him the best life he can have.
