I just sort of happened upon this site by accident! So glad that I did! I am a member of the deafdogs egroup and deaf jrt though I am NO MAIL on both right now. Life, kids, dogs, husband, you name it. They ALL demand my time!
I got started with deaf dogs doing Jack Russell Rescue. After fostering a few I found that they weren't any different than other dogs. They just required a different kind of owner and a different kind of training. I later adopted my first deaf dog, Emil. Years later, I adopted another deaf dog. I love my terriers but the deaf dogs are such a joy to me. Mine are french bulldogs.
Emil is almost six years old and his younger brother Nugget is two. They are truly the best dogs we have ever been owned by!
