Meet our Deaf Dogs Rock Star of the Day adoptable deaf 13 week old puppy Ziggy who is looking for a very special home with someone who will cherish him, make positive reinforcement training/socialization a top priority and always keep him safe.
Updated photos as of 6/21/21 of Ziggy at 13 weeks old.
Photos below are Ziggy at 9 weeks of age.
From his foster: Introducing Ziggy! Ziggy is being fostered in the Dallas area and is 9 weeks old (born March 2021). He is a sweetheart and loves to cuddle and play with his sister Zoey (not deaf) and foster family which includes dogs and kids.
Our family has fostered many dogs and slowly came to realize Ziggy was deaf. At first we just thought he was a hard sleeper who needed cuddles to wake up, but then understood this beautiful blue-eyed puppy also did not respond to loud noises either. We have been working with Ziggy on learning hand signals and potty training.
I have included a photo of Ziggy’s mom, she is under 20 pounds, the breed of the foster Ziggy is unknown.
We are looking for Ziggy’s forever home that hopefully includes another dog from which he can take cues, as well as a patient and loving family.
