Update 12-15-2013: Blitz has been in his new foster to adopt home for a few weeks. He gets along great with the other dogs in the house and he gets to go to the beach and play on a regular basis (he loves the beach – who knew?). Thanks to Terre for keeping me updated and thanks to his foster mama for giving him a chance at a happy life when others wouldn’t even consider adopting him because he is deaf. Little to those people know how much DEAF DOGS ROCK. Thanks to everyone who donated so Blitz would remain out of a high kill shelter. You all ROCK!  ~ Christina Lee – Deaf Dogs Rock

I saw an URGENT plea for a beautiful deaf dog in New Jersey named Blitz. When I followed the Facebook thread is said that Blitz’s boarding bill was a couple of hundred dollars in the hole and he was running out of time. When I shared Blitz’s need for boarding fees on our Deaf Dogs Rock Wall to do a 12 hour donation drive to help pay his boarding bills, our DDR FB followers really stepped up on Monday night. Not only were we able to pay Blitz’s past due bill and get it current but we were also able to pay for a couple of weeks boarding in advance! Thank you, thank you, thank you for all your help and support on such short notice. When I called Terre the person who has him in boarding she was blown away by how fast you all stepped up to help this poor deaf dog in trouble. You all ROCK!

When I contacted Terre who is boarding him she was so relieved because she was running out of options. Blitz had a “meet and greet” earlier in the week but the woman who showed up had an un-neutered female bully who did not care for Blitz and actually lunged at him and bit him on the head so Blitz had a bad week last week but I am hoping Blitz’s luck is getting better. Terre told me he has two more “meet and greets” coming up this week with potential adopters so we are going to keep our fingers crossed.

When I called the kennels who have him they say he is a very good boy but he hates water so they haven’t been able to give him a bath. Terre had mentioned to me his previous owners would squirt him all the time with a bottle of water mixed with ammonia. Many deaf dog owners use a squirt bottle out in the yard to break up rough play between two dogs and it usually works fine with the dog’s usually just seeing the bottle and they will take a “time out” but I think Blitz was abused so whoever adopts him must be very aware of his fear with water and water bottles.

Blitz is still available for adoption and he is located in New Jersey. Blitz is estimated to be around 2 years old. If you would like to adopt Blitz please contact Terre at 732-581-0260 or email her dolphinluvrtc@aol.com

Thanks again for all your help and support for Blitz. Now we just need to find him a loving home or a wonderful rescue with deaf dog training experience to help Blitz be the best he can be!
