Meet adoptable deaf 14 week old (as of 9/11) Sky who is looking for a special home with someone who will cherish her, make daily positive reinforcement training/socialization/enrichment a priority and always keep her safe. Sky appears to be a shepherd mix, border collie mix or spaniel mix.

From her rescue advocate: Sky is a wonderful, fun, puppy. She is full of life and running around one minute then lays calmly at your feet the next. Sky was surrendered by a young family after they realized she was deaf and with four small children, they knew they couldn’t provide the training she needed to live a fulfilled life.

We agreed to help find her the perfect home. Sky is great with other dogs and loved the children although the excitement of seeing them caused her to jump up on them. This is okay for older children but with their two year old it became a problem. She is a very typical four month old bouncy puppy – she just can’t hear. The family did start her training. She responds very nicely to a hand signal for sit and walks pretty good on leash already.
