Update 2-12-24: Burke is still available for adoption.

I’m Burke and I’m the sweetest, goofiest dog around! I love to cuddle and sit on your lap. Cuddling is one of my favorite things to do!

I’m curious about everything and will follow you everywhere in the house. I’m dog and cat friendly. I will steal all the chew toys from the other fosters and hoard them. I think everything is mine and I’m working on sharing. I’m deaf and very smart boy who knows how to sit, lay down, and stay. I’m is eager to learn and very treat motivated.

I get super excited when the leash comes out as i knows it means I’m going for a walk or a car ride. The car ride often ends up bringing him to daycare to see all his friends and play chase. I sleep throughout the night in a kennel. Sometimes my sight is not great with different lighting so can makes it difficult to see dark objects whether it’s clothing, hats, or stranger. I may get startled, bark suddenly, and quickly move closer to see you. It may take me a few seconds to recognize you and turn into my wiggle butt again.

Deaf dogs can be challenging at times and require patience. Please research and make sure you can fully commit to adopting a deaf dog and meeting their needs prior to applying to adopt. Learn more about adopting a deaf dog starting here.

From his rescue advocate: Burke is the goofiness pup around! He is always so happy and wiggly. He shares a home with humans, canine friends, and feline friends. He loves to wrestle and romp around the fenced in yard with a tennis ball. When he wants to relax and watch tv, he snuggles in close. He sleeps throughout the night in a kennel.

He is very treat motivated! He knows how to sit, lay down, and kennel. Burke gets abundance of excitement when it’s time to go for a walk or leave the house that he goes in circles wiggling uncontrollable which can make it difficult to leash him up. He enjoys car rides. He attends doggy daycare once a week and loves to see his friends including his human buddies.

He did receive eye surgery for what’s known as hairy eyeball. Sometimes it makes it difficult for him to make out the objects he sees and can bark. He figures it out quickly when he approaches to smell and gets a better look. Typically happens with bad lighting or someone wearing dark clothing or a hat.

Burke’s adoption fee is $250 (plus tax) to a screened and approved home. For more information, check him out at journeyhomeanimalrescue.org/bio/burke
