Otis – CA

Otis - CA

Meet handsome Rocker Dog Otis.  Otis is a 3.5 year old white pitbull weighing 60 pounds. He has the most amazing blue eyes! Otis is completely deaf, but despite his inability to hear he is a really happy, sweet, well-adjusted boy with a ton of love to provide. Otis just completed a 4 week training program at a deaf dogs training camp- he knows commands, has great manners and he is house trained, crate trained and walks well on leash. Otis gets along well with other dogs, or he would be perfectly happy as the only dog in the home. With his new obedience skills, his handsome looks and his smart sweet personality we know that Otis will make an excellent companion for a special adopter/family.

Madison – FL

Madison - FL

Madison is defiantly a spoiled house dog.     She really is a member of the family. Even though she is deaf we have been able to train her with a few basic commands. It breaks my heart to even write this, but we need to find a good loving home for her.   We had some life events happen over the last year and now have seven children, so it’s been hard to give her the attention she needs. Also she has had a slight change in her temperament with the kids when she gets startled. I truly believe she will be a great asset to anyone who has time for her.

Tilt – CO

Tilt - CO

Meet Tilt! He got his name due to the fact that he tilts his head much more that the average dog but it’s super cute!. It’s kind of ironic that he does this as that is what most dogs do to catch sound better. Tilt is basically deaf, sometimes we think he might catch a sound here and . The vet believes either his inner ear or his vestibular system has a congenital defect or he experienced some sort of trauma. Tilt is completely unaware of his deafness! He is a huge love bug, and really enjoys playing with every dog he meets. He is super sweet, very friendly and is just one of the happiest little guys you will ever meet. Tilt is a little guy, we think maybe a Manchester terrier/Chi mix. He’s got very unique markings making him a great looking dog. He is UTD on shots, neutered, microchipped and HW negative. He does well with kids, cats are unknown. He is crate trained and is doing well with potty training. We think he is about a year old.

Blue - FL - Adopted

11-18-2015: Great news. We just got word that Blue has been adopted and gone to a great home! Hello human friends, my names Blue! I’m a very smart, 1 year old Boxer/American Bulldog who is deaf. I am very good with hand commands and I like learning new things.   I’m also a big lover and I enjoy the company of all humans, cats, and others alike. Exploring the outdoors, playing with toys, and bath time are just a few of my favorite pastimes. Do you think you have room in your heart for a special boy like me? I sure hope you do!

Houma-La.

Houma-La.

Sugar was found as a stay and owner never claimed. She is between 6 and 9 months of age, UTD on shots and spayed as of 10/14/15. Sugar is deaf and will need a family that is patient and willing to work with her. She is super sweet and is very active and loves to be chased around the pool and to chase you around the pool. She wants you to hold her paw while you rub her belly. We think she is a pit/boxer mix and will stay on the smaller side. She has shown no signs of aggression, every one that comes over she wants to play with, other dogs included.

Positive Reinforcement Deaf Dog Training ROCKS

Positive Reinforcement Deaf Dog Training ROCKS

I would like to welcome Lara Joseph K-9 trainer from The Animal Behavior Center in Sylvania. Ohio.Lara brings her training tips and information to us from what she has learned with her new deaf bulldog puppy Levi. Lara lives in Ohio where she owns and operates The Animal Behavior Center, an animal behavior and training facility based on teaching people how to train, force-free through empowering the animal and creating strong, reliable, trust-building relationships using positive reinforcement and applications in behavior analysis. She travels, lectures, consults, and presents workshops on behavior, behavior change, positive reinforcement training, and enrichment. Positive Reinforcement Deaf Dog Training Rocks –  By Lara Joseph    /A year ago this month I adopted a deaf bulldog pup that I have named Levi. He is now about 14 months old and has been with me since he was ten weeks old. His eyes are crystal blue, which attracts the attention of many. Only some of the time will I let people know he is deaf. If I didn’t tell people, they would likely not even be able to tell. Why would I not let people know, you may ask? Many people show pity on an animal with the loss of one or more of their senses, or a missing or deformed body part. There is no need to pity Levi. He knows life no other way and he is a fully […]

Goober – AZ

Goober - AZ

Goober was rescued from our County shelter with minutes to spare. He is a white and spotted bully breed mix puppy about 1 year old. It does not look like anyone has spent a lot of time training our Mr. Goober. We are looking for a foster or adopter for this sweet boy who due to being passed from home to home and not getting a lot of training support is exhibiting trust and anxiety issues. When you foster with Bridge Rescue, we provide a crate, all medical, supplies, toys, food and training. An adoptive home would be great too. We are beginning to work with a trainer and would love to find someone willing to commit to working on training with us and Mr. Goober. He is a sweet love bug who deserves all that is good in this world after what he has been through.

Beethoven – IN

Beethoven - IN

Beethoven is looking for his furrever home! This sweet boy was picked up by an animal shelter as a stray and is now with Scars Pitbull Rescue. He is one year old and currently lives with a foster family with two other dogs and two cats. He loves everyone and gets along well with dogs, cats and kids. He is deaf, but you would never guess it! He has been to a professional trainer and knows basic commands by hand signal and also responds to a remote collar.     Beethoven loves to cuddle and thinks he is a lap dog. He is young and still full of puppy energy and would be great in an active household with lots to do. When going for walks, he stays right by his person’s side and will follow you to the moon and back! He is crate trained and house trained. He would not be a good candidate for an outdoor dog and would do best with a fenced yard since he can’t hear oncoming cars or other dogs. Beethoven has epilepsy, which is easily managed by two pills a day. He has not had any seizures since he has been on medication. He is neutered and up to date on vaccinations. If you are interested in adopting Beethoven or have any questions, contact Tracy Landis at […]

Bingi-GA

Bingi-GA

Bingi is a one and a half year old pit bull mix. He is mostly done growing and is only 40 lbs with beautiful blue and hazel eyes. Bingi is housetrained and is learning hand signals for ‘sit’ , ‘no’ and ‘come’. He is eager to learn but will require patience with his training as he is still young and energetic. Because he is deaf, he needs a fenced yard.   He is currently located in Lawrenceville, GA. He would love a family who will be willing to make him part of a family and not leave him outside. He needs to live inside with his family but have access to a secure fenced yard that will always keep him safe. He also needs someone who will be committed to continuing his positive reinforcement training daily so he can be the best dog he can be.
