Has til 6/11!! TX, Selma Deaf Aust. Cattle Dog **Lovable**
After talking with Shelly, I am concerned because she doesn’t seem to have a lot of patience with the dog following her around after his world has been turned upside-down. He is deaf and just lost his only person he has ever known. I learned the owner had to part with all of her dogs and leave the state to take care of her sick mother. This pup was the hardest to place. I have also attached a photo.
So if you know of anyone you could connect me with to help this sweet dog, I would be so grateful. Feel free to forward.
Ok so the hearts in David & I could not let this happen.
Got a phone call from a lady who's choice was to find a good stable home or put him to sleep. (she was having to move out of state & couldn't take him with her)
Here's what she had:
*An 8yr old male blue heeler/Australian Shepard.
*HE IS DEAF, but don't let that fool you!
*He is fixed, up to date
on shots & rabies.
*He is intelligent, lovable, & loyal.
*Loves to cuddle but is too big to be a lap dog so he is satisfied with laying at your feet or next to wherever you sit.
**He knows some hand gestures
**He is about 70% housebroken
**He needs a stay at home parent to continue training in housebreaking & commands (yes I know he's older but cattle dogs are quick learners & always willing to learn)
*He is crate trained, altho he doesn't like to be in it b'cuz he starts whining, yelping, & yapping, but after awhile he settles down.
*He likes kids, is okay with other dogs, not sure about cats!
*He is not big on playing with toys, but loves to chase you & wrestle with you.
