Meet adoptable deaf dog Sonic who is looking for a loving forever home with someone who will cherish him, provide structure, positive reinforcement training/enrichment/exercise and always keep him safe.

From his shelter advocate: Sonic is the best boy! While he can’t hear, that does not stop him from living his life to the fullest! Sonic was surrendered to our facility (Peninsula Regional Animal Shelter) in Newport News, Virginia because his original owners could not keep him and rehomed him. The family he was rehomed to did not end up being the right fit for Sonic. While he was getting along with the other dogs in the home, he could be a bit rough when it came to his resources. It is reported that he can be a bit guardy with his items, but this is totally workable! This guy is housebroken, crate trained, good with older children and he is a true house pet. He loves to follow his person around, play with balls, ropes, chew on toys and his favorite thing to do is CUDDLE!


Please reach out to if you would like to meet with Sonic and/or reach out to if you think you’d be able to foster this guy!


***Note from Christina of Deaf Dogs Rock. With multiple dog homes it is very important not to have toys, chew bones or any high value things laying around that can trigger dogs to fight. Here at Deaf Dogs Rock all deaf dogs and hearing dogs are fed in their crates, we don’t have any toys or chews laying around. They get supervised play time in different areas of the house or yard. If one of the deaf dogs tends to resource guard we take that dog out to play one one one. We also set up an X-Large play crate which our deaf Boston Terriers ask to go in to play with their toys or chew on their Bene bones (both Boston’s are resource guarders). Our dogs never fight because we make sure there are no triggers around like toys, chews, ect. If you are thinking of adopting Sonic we recommend you read this article:
