A big shout out to Lindsey Ward with WSLS for doing a interview with us about DeafDogsRock.com. She and her camera man did a great job bringing awareness to deaf dogs in our community. Now more people will know where they can go for resources regarding deaf dogs.

Deaf Dogs Rock is a website created by Christina and Chris Lee is making a difference connecting deaf dog owners and people interested in adopting a disabled pet.
The couple’s efforts have quickly gained national attention.
After adopting their boxer, Nitro, Christina and Chris found few resources on deaf dogs, so they took matters into their own hands starting the website.
Recently, USA Today Pet Guide and Dog Fancy magazine featured Christina and Nitro’s story.”You never know what your purpose is until something like this comes along,” explained Christina. “In a 48 hours span to think about the direction of our life changing forever is pretty incredible I think. It’s just something where we had never thought about it,” Chris said.
Since the website launched the couple has helped find 400 dogs new homes.
