When we got a plea to help a woman who took in two deaf boxers puppies to keep them from being dumped at the shelter, we immediately reached out to Andrea with Speak For The Unspoken Rescue near Columbus Ohio to see if she had an open deaf boxer foster. Andrea not only made room for Truman but followed up to secure Truman for rescue and to get him safely into rescue. We let Andrea with Speak know that we have a special fund set up to help deaf boxers in need called Nitro’s Fund in memory and to honor my deaf boxer Nitro who passed away in November 2018. Because of Nitro Deaf Dogs Rock is known around the world to advocate for deaf dogs and their families and to sponsor 150 deaf dogs into rescue each year with a small percentage of them being deaf white boxers.

This past Saturday May 2, 2020 Truman made it safely to Speak For The Unspoken in Ohio to start on his new journey of positive reinforcement training, to be vetted and also when he is ready to find a new loving forever home with a person or family who will make his needs a priority. A huge shout out to Andrea with Speak For The Unspoken and her fosters, rescue transport drivers and their entire team for helping to help us help them. A huge thank you to all of you who donate to Deaf Dogs Rock to help us save dogs like Truman and make sure they land in a safe haven.
Saving one deaf may not change the world, but it will surely change the world for that one deaf dog. Thanks again, ~ Christina Lee – Deaf Dogs Rock
