Meet adoptable 6 month old deaf Catahoula puppy Winnie who needs an active home with someone who will cherish her, make positive reinforcement training/socialization a priority and always keep her safe.
I had been looking for awhile for a dog. My daughter found some dogs on line that were free and they had 3 girls left. She knew the boy that posted about the dogs but the dog were not his but they belonged to his sister and her husband. I called and they met me with the 3 girls. I picked Winnie. The guy did tell me he thought she maybe visually impaired but nothing about her hearing.
The next week I took her to the vet to get her first set of shots and have vet look over her. The vet told me that she is definitely visually impaired and there is no hearing. Winnie never responded to her name and vet did a few test to check her hearing and nothing. I have reached out to several vet clinics to get help with Winnie.
I have tried everything to help her and myself. It’s been very difficult but I’ve tried to make her life very consistent and routine. She lets me know when she needs to go potty by scratching the door. When she’s done doing her business outside she will scratch the door. She gets along well with other dogs. The only thing is she wants to play and the dogs that we have been around are older. We take daily walks and she does great on a leash. I have 3 grandchildren and she is very good with them. She loves belly rubs
