Update 12/17/18: Pink is now completely house trained and she so wants to be in her new home soon. Pink is an adoptable deaf dog who needs someone who will cherish her, make positive reinforcement training a top priority, show her the ropes, love her, and always keep her safe. She needs a person who has a secure fenced yard who won’t leave her unattended but make sure she is always safe. Please consider giving this girl a forever home where she can flourish and be safe. Raising a deaf puppy like Pink is not for the faint of heart but for someone who is willing to put some work into shaping Pink to be the best dog she can be. In return for your commitment, Pink will pay you back with lots of love and loyalty.
From her current caregiver: We responded to a desperate plea for this dog, our vet had posted on FB that this pup needed a new home right away. Short story, she was adopted by an irresponsible young adult who over the course of a year kept her in a crate for hours on end while she attended school and worked full time. Pink became a problem when the owner moved into an apartment and her cries during the day to be let out of her crate became an issue for the owner’s neighbors. We asked Pink into our lives to help her (the dog) without realizing how the traffic across our backyard would have the potential to impact her safety. We have hearing dogs that we never give a second thought to as they have learned, by sound, to anticipate and leave the area, but Pink is oblivious and has come close to becoming a sad story. In short we cannot keep her.
She had little to no training with her previous owner and she’s 13 months old, still full of puppy. She counter surfs, she gets into things she shouldn’t, she will occasionally forget she has access to the yard and do her business in the house and can be food aggressive. All of these things can be addressed with time and patience, and if it were not for the fear for her safety we would absolutely work on this with her.
She appears to be some Pit with maybe a Dalmation gene thrown in. She, of course, is white with just some spots on the back of her ears. She weighs in at about 40 lbs. She is good with other dogs, outside of the food issue. She is a total sweet heart.
There is a $200 adoption fee (which will cover her spaying and vetting), and you need to live within a 3 hour drive of Irving/Dallas/Fort Worth Texas to be considered. If you are interested email Donna for her to send you a blank adoption application to be filled out and sent back to her for consideration.
