This is Aspen, our newest girl from Puerto Rico. She is 1 year old, deaf and super sweet. Loves dogs, people and kids. NO CATS for this girl! Her prey drive is SUPER HIGH so no cats or small critters for this gal! Aspen will need help with crate training, loose leash walking and her basic commands. Her new home must be willing to attend a 6-7 week basic obedience class with this pretty girl for training and bonding. Aspen is not spay, but the rescue will take care of that upon her arrival. If you are interested in this beautiful girl, please fill out an adoption application on our website.

Aspen will need a home that is willing to commit to working with her, a home with patience and a lot of time to give. He is a super sweet girl that will make someone a wonderful companion. To learn more about the deaf dog, please visit Deaf Dogs Rock , Deaf Dog Fund or you can visit our page at Deaf Dogs.

A note on the Deaf: Deaf dogs are dependent on us. It is always important that we earn and sustain their trust by being clear and caring.

 
Deaf dogs make wonderful companions if you are willing to make a special effort to live with them successfully. Most notably they need to be carefully supervised and managed on leash at all times or within a confined area. More challenging for humans who are so used to talking is the need to develop a mode of communication without sound, using hand and body signals. The deaf dog is not handicapped Ė he or she simply canít hear. They do not know they are deaf. Typically, deaf dogs compensate for the lack of hearing sound by developing a stronger reliance on visual signals and on their sense of smell. Because dogs donít speak or use language to communicate as we do, they are ahead of us in their ability to read body language and detect meaningful patterns of motion. Research has shown that even dogs with normal hearing learn signals easier and faster than they do words. So the challenge really is for us to learn to use signals effectively and consistently to build an effective relationship with our deaf dog.
