Meet beautiful adoptable deaf dog Lemon who is the most lovable girl you could ask for and she is looking for a loving home with someone who will cherish her and always keep her safe.
From her advocate: Lemon is between 3-4 years old and is American Bulldog/Boxer mix. She is extremely sweet, smart, and happy-go-lucky. Lemon’s past it not fully known, but she has definitely not had it easy. She has a previous injury that has healed, but has left scar tissue which limits the amount of exercise she can have. When Lemon first meets new people she will cower thinking you are going to hurt her. Her previous injury could have been caused by someone severely hurting her in the past, however, she does not let that slow her down!
Lemon’s ideal home would be:
1. Fenced in yard – When given the opportunity to run, she will take full advantage of that, so a fenced in yard is a must. Since she can’t hear, she will be unaware of any vehicles around her and could get hurt.
2. Patient owner with deaf dog experience – Lemon is a wonderful dog, but needs someone willing to work through her adjustment to a new home. Lemon isn’t the biggest fan of change, so there will be an adjustment period.
3. No cats or critters (preferably an only dog) – Lemon does not do well with cats or critters due to her higher prey drive. She is fostered with other dogs, but is not a fan of sharing, so would do best as an only dog.
She most recently learned how to swim and now really enjoys going to the lake for a nice swim. She is such a good swimmer and really enjoys the exercise and it is less impact on her leg, which is even better! She acts like she has been swimming her whole life, so if you live by the water she will gladly swim and enjoy it with you!
