World Tallest Dog is Deaf and Blind!

Titan, a Great Dane named the world's tallest dog, with his owner Diana Taylor in San Diego.

Titan, the Deaf and Blind Great Dane made it in the Guiness Book of World Records.
It is nice a deaf dog gets this worldwide recognizance. Especially so when sign language, which is appreciated, cherished and valued by many in the Deaf community, is used to communicate with a deaf dog. And it is said that later on when Titan lost some vision, tactile was used as a form of communication. Titan not only lives with his human mom but also another Deaf Great Dane and a hearing German Shepherd. What is even wonderful is that Titan was adopted from, where you go to find adoptable pets that are found at shelters and rescue groups across the country. Go to Titan's Website

Here are several articles about Titan:

Coweta, GA: Dalmatian Has Until 12/30/09

Can you post this guy around??? He is deaf and will be killed on Dec. 30. If you can help call Kaye at 678-575-3062 or email me at


  • Breed: Dalmatian
  • Sex: Male
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Medium
  • ID: 0012976 Coweta AC

PLEASE CONTACT COWETA COUNTY ANIMAL CONTROL TO ADOPT THIS PET: 770-254-3735. The address is 91 Selt Road, Newnan, GA. This very handsome fella and his companion (female dalmatian in I-6) were brought into the shelter because they were too rough with a yorkie. Therefore, he may not do well with small animals. This fella is a L-O-V-E!!!! When we had him out to get to know him.......he stole our hearts...lock, stock and barrell!

He was shaking like a leaf and very scared......especially since he is deaf and is in a strange place with strange people. While we were standing around him he started to whine pitifully and shake from head to toe. We realized that he was getting very nervous because we were standing around and behind him and he wanted to see our hands and faces as that is his main way of communication by not being able to hear our voices or other sounds. When we moved in front of him and he was able to see us, he calmed down immediately. Just take a look at his precious face and video. not let his life end at animal control. Can you open your heart and home? PLEASE HURRY! This sweetie has been in the shelter since 12/17/09 and will be available for adoption, rescue or can be euthanized 12/29/09! NOTE: CCAC CANNOT ADOPT ONLINE OR OVER THE PHONE. ADOPTIONS MUST BE DONE IN PERSON.

American Bulldog/Boxer Mix in AL

This deaf female American bulldog/boxer mix was recently surrendered to our shelter in Auburn, AL. The owner had to give her up because her daughter, granddaughter, and mother all had to move in with her, and there was no roomfor this girl. Probably a situation where they're trying to save money in this terrible economy. She is about 3 years old, sweet-natured and has been trained with visual signals to obey commands such as "sit," "down," etc. HW status is unknown, but we can test her and vaccinate for parvo, bordatella and distemper. We can spay
her, too, though it may have to be after the holidays. She is at Lee County Shelter in Auburn. The shelter phone number is 334-821-3222 or contact Karen at

Please Help This Deaf/Blind Catahloula in Louisana!

This is Beowulf. He is looking for a last chance rescue. Due to extreme circumstances, he cannot stay in his foster home any more. He has no place to go but to animal control and he will certainly be euthanized if he ends up there. His options have run out and we are looking for any rescue that will consider taking him. He has been fully vetted and neutered, and we will raise money for transportation.

Beowulf is a blind and deaf Catahoula. He has been at this foster home since he was 4 months old. Now he is 7 months old. He is fully vetted, neutered, has all shots and has been on heartworm protection his whole life. He is crate trained, very sweet. He is in Louisiana but we can transport anywhere. Beowulf is running out of time.

If you can help Beowulf, please send an email to

Deaf Husky Mix Pup in Louisana Needs Out!

Does anyone know of a "deaf" dog rescue around? The p/b husky puppy shown below was turned in to the Pt Coupee shelter by its owners because they said it acted "funny".

Deaf Senior Beagle in NC is Sad

Hey All,

If anyone knows anyone that would be willing to take a 16 year old Beagle, Homer, that is VERY over weight and mostly deaf please let me know. I have a client that has a 1 year old and Homer has snapped at her a few times now and showing a lot of aggression towards the baby. She has tried gating him, putting him in a different room, etc.....he then becomes destructive. He has always had full reign of their home, she said it's just getting worse and she can't handle it anymore.

She has contacted all the shelters and rescue groups within 3 hours of Raleigh, has sent tons of emails and begging for someone to take him and has no luck yet........if no home is found she is putting Homer to sleep, she had an appointment for that today but cancelled it and everyone is trying to help her find a home for him by Friday. I know it's a tough decision and sad and I am not happy hearing about it but she feels she has no choice, her child comes 1st, etc......

She wants the dog to be happy and go to a good home, but needs a home ASAP. Please spread the word you may have already heard about poor Homer, again, it's so sad!!!!

Happy Holidays to All!

Deaf Senior Dog in WVA Needs a Chance!

P.S. Crossposter sent email without checking the site above thoroughly that this dog has been rescued back in November.

This poor, sweet, senior girl was picked up as a stray. She is deaf and nearly blind. She had a terrible flea infestation and couldn't stop scratching. Plus, she had an eye infection that had gone untreated. We are treating her eye infection and she looks better already. We also treated her fleas and trimmed her nails that were so long they were curling under. She is feeling much better now. This girl is very old and we know the odds of finding a home willing to take a senior are slim to none. Nevertheless, she has a soft blanket to sleep on and we have done all we can to make her comfortable in her final days.

B-2 is approx. 10+ years old and weighs around 20 lbs.

3 Deaf Dogs in Philadelphia Need Saving


Kirby (a0901165)

6-9 month old pure white male pit mix that is hearing impaired and stick in a high volume shelter! Little Kirby is playful and sweet and needs a home that understands the needs of hearing impaired dogs and is able to train him to be confident and well socialized. Kirby has no resource guarding issues and seems to enjoy the company of other dogs!

Elmo (09189255)-URGENT

Elmo is a 15 year old beagle that needs to leave ASAP. This old boy was surrendered by family members that took him in after his owner died. He started having seizures after his owner passed and the family that took him in no longer want to care for him. This poor boy is also deaf. Elmo needs another chance! He walks like a dream on the leash, he prances with not a care in the world. He seems to be housebroken and loves to be outside where he can lay in the sun and sniff around.

Dessy (A07301765)

Super sweet, hearing impaired gal that is looking for her permanent home. Dessy came into the ACCT shelter as a stray on March 10, where she was quickly put into foster care. Dessy is not only looking for a home that understands the needs of deaf dogs and can help her flourish, but also one that is active and FUN! She loves to play! Dessy is good with most other dogs (she can however be a bit overwhelming to less energetic or dominant dogs) and can entertain herself as well. Dessy is very people oriented and enjoys time on the couch as well. Dessy's favorite activities:
-swim and splash (mostly splash) in the kiddie pool -skateboarding or jogging -outdoor festivals, she's been to a few and has been great! She is always making fast friends.
-and of course that most traditional game of fetch, she loves it so much, its sometimes adorably goofy.

Dessy would benefit greatly towards her success at being a perfect house dog from nice walks and is learning to walk quite well on leash, she is also great in the car and enjoys sticking her head out the window to sniff the wind!

As much as Dessy loves to play she is also a wonderful snuggler, and can be quite lovey-dovey. Dessy is already spayed and microchipped and is ready to be adopted into her home.

She is about 1-2 years old and is crate trained and is well on her way to understanding house breaking.

Emily Tanen, New Hope Liaison - Cell: 917.578.6372; Email: (Fri - Tues 10am - 6pm)

LECHE – A838825 – 1 yr old male pittie – 52lbs – OS, 11/20, owned one year, no time to care for.

He is in adoption ward, meaning he is healthy and has good enough behavior to be adopted but is still in a kill shelter.


Leche is a 1.4 yo male relinquished on 11/20 to the shelter. Leche was pre-owned and his actual owner had no time for him anymore. Leche is said to be a very loving, affectionate and highly caring companion animal. He would be very good toward people, children and other dogs. His owner says that Leche is deaf. Leche weights 53lbs and has some type of non contagious dermatitis, may be nutritional. He was rated No Concern upon arrival.

Leche is a gorgeous white dog with blue eyes. He is a bit on the hyper side and at first, jumps at his caretaker. No aggression in this young fellow. He wants to play and snuggle with you. He would love to be a lap dog and dreams to be a teacup Chihuahua. Leche is indeed very friendly. We have not seen any display of aggression toward other dogs, on the contrary. He seems to be housebroken. Deaf dogs can be wonderful in the right hands.

Look 3: Jumps on the assessor,repeatedly shoulder rubs and will not allow the assessor to conduct the assessment

Sensitivity 1: Leans in to the assessor with soft body,wagging tail,open mouth and ears back

Tag 2: Not fearful,but unresponsive to the assessor, approaches the assessor with soft body and wagging tail affter play

Deaf Dog (Boxer?) in FL is in Danger!

If anyone can help, please let me know. I have NOT pulled this dog, so he is in very really danger of euthansia (sadly, I am out of space and funds at the moment). He is DEAF. Very beautiful (I know the picture is terrible), super sweet----watches your every move so he would probably be very easy to train with hand signals. He is just a doll!!! Young, friendly with other dogs. Please contact me ASAP if you can help.... I will pull if he has a place to go. Whoever can help can contact me directly at 850-499-3970 or Ask for Terri. The dog is in Northwest Florida in the dog pound. Has to be pulled by a rescue. They will not release to individuals. Thank you!!!

Deaf Puppy Time in NJ Shelter is Running Out

Elena is approximately 14 weeks old and has already learned how unfair life can be. Her sweet self was found tied to a tree by several shoelaces in the pouring rain last weekend. She was brought to the SPCA where we gave her everything she needed to be comfortable. We vaccinated her and were waiting for her stray time to be up so we could find her a loving home. One day a staff member noticed that she remained curled up fast asleep in her bed throught the "morning rush" of dogs barking for their breakfast. After further observation, we believe that Elena is severely hard of hearing or deaf. We hung up our "deaf dog protocol" on her kennel to begin to teach her sign language and she responded quickly. She is very playful and loved time out in the yards, but her favorite thing to do is giving kisses, and she will happily sit in your lap to do so.

Unfortunately, fate had another nasty twist for Elena. The SPCA takes animals that are stray, released, and cruelty seizures. Our intake in the past day was extremely high and we are expecting more intake tomorrow. We have run out of space. Elena needs rescue commitment or adoption by tomorrow. I can make arrangements for her to be held for several days in a short term foster home if neccesary. She will need a placement that understands the needs of a deaf dog and will have patience and dedication to truely follow through on her training with sign language. If you are able to help Elena, please contact Maria at or by cell phone 609-330-1393. Thank you

Deaf American Bulldog Pup in GA

He is deaf and knows hand signal
He is all white, with just one dark spot on the nape of his tail. We believe he is deaf, which is not unusual for white dogs and by far not a reason to euthanize a dog. In fact, Domino already knows a hand signal – SIT! Domino is still very young. We estimate his age around 5-6 months. Due to this, he has all the puppy energy you can imagine. We noticed he does not like water much but one thing that stands out above all is the fact that Domino LOVES little kids!!! Pretty much all of his attention was directed at Leo, the toddler of one of the rescue volunteers, when he was in the exercise field. All Domino wanted to do was be near him and play with him. If Leo left the field he would sit at the gate and whine for him to come back. Domino would be great for a family with kids. He's a sweetheart! Unfortunately, Domino is NOT good with other dogs.

To adopt Domino, you will have to fill out an adoption contract, which includes a mandatory spay/neuter agreement. You will be required to purchase a low-cost neuter voucher and pay $8 for his Rabies shot and a micro chip. For more information, please e-mail or Jen at We hope to hear from you before it is too late for Domino.

Deaf Cat in GA

I have a really sweet white deaf cat. He's 7 years old and neutured. He needs to be an only pet because he is afraid of other cats. I know because I have had him since he was a baby. I keep him separate from my other cats. I have become sick and am living with my parents. They built him a gazebo outside, which is nice, has a loft and climbing posts. But he is unhappy. He needs more attention. Is anyone able to give him the loving home he deserves? Call Yvette at 706-614-8408 or send e-mail to

Deaf Feline Brothers in TX

They are about 1.5 years old and are brothers they need to go a home together. Their names are Ying and Yang. One of them has 1 blue eye and 1 green eye, and the other one has 2 blue eyes. They are very active and love to play, they are up to date on all shots, neutered and declawed in the front. They are really neat cats they will lay together and clean each other it is very cute. This lady had rescued them before the original owner was going to take them to the shelter so she took them in and got them everything they needed but she has other cats that are older and are not liking the young cats in the house so she is having some behavorial issues with the older ones. If you could pass this on it would really help alot. Interested people can send an email to:

Thank you so much,

A08487213 Lola Terrier, Pit Bull/Mix, White/Brown, Medium, 0 1-2 years, Bitten: No Bite History

Lola is a non-aggressive, high energy dog that has little or no training. She interacts and focuses on the handler somewhat but is easily distracted. I was told that Lola might be hard of hearing and used a clicker, hand clapping and stomping on the floor in the attempt to get her attention. There was no indication that Lola heard those stimuli. While Lola was looking at me I used food reinforcement to get her attention and ask her not to jump on me. I was moderately successful. We also worked on polite walking. After about five minutes Lola was paying attention to me and not pulling on the leash about 70% of the time. While her hearing problem is definitely a problem, I think that Lola could be trained to respond to a laser pointer or hand signals. I spoke with Lola's owners and they were unwilling and unable to work with a deaf dog. They also stated that Lola was extremely high energy inside of their house. She is also very mouthy and tends to redirect her excitement to mouthing the leash or the arms of her handler. She has left many bruises on her former owner's arms and has ripped her clothing when she gets excited

Deaf AM Bulldog/Pit Bull Mix in NYC Kill Shelter

Isn't there anyone on the East Coast who can foster for a few weeks, while we work on finding a home. He is truly a good, good dog. Am Bulldog Rescue will probably take him once they shift a few dogs around. I cannot take him, no funds, no space and too many dogs to get homes for. The super awesome Chumani being one of them. I am in contact with his owner so know everything about him. Their 10 month old son was raised with him. Anyone have any ideas???


Deaf Border Collie/Aussie Mix in KY

Whoever named me Lucky must have had an ironic sense of humor. My owners left me behind in a pen when they moved away. It also appears that I am deaf. The landlord fed me for a while, but then he just planned to turn me loose to fend for myself. Thank goodness he spoke to a volunteer who said to bring me to the shelter. Now that is all behind me (except for being deaf); maybe my future truly does hold some luck for me. You can see in my video that I am handsome beyond words and I'm a truly wonderful boy. I seem to know a few hand signals. I don't bark. I was curious in the cat room but not aggressive and not really afraid. When I was introduced to another dog at the shelter, again I was curious and behaved myself even when he did rude things to me. When I was neutered I learned I weigh 66 lbs and may be a bit underweight and could get a bit bigger. I know that luck is in my future because these people have vowed to find me a wonderful home and family where I can be happy and safe forever. I believe them.

Sweet Deaf Pit in PA Needs to Get Out ASAP!

We are all worried he won't make it out now-so annoying because he really is a great dog.

Hello!! Big Boy’s the name. As you can see I am a solid white male pit bull, described by some as handsome, gorgeous, stunning, loveable-wait I mean about two years old neutered and up to date on all of my shots!…but anyways. Right now I am back at the Animal Control shelter for my third visit and frankly I am sick of this joint-but I do love the people here, they give me lots of attention, peanut butter filled Kong’s which I LOOOVE!! They also understand that I love a little bit of sunshine on my face everyday so they let me romp around and chase after tennis balls outside, which come on, I mean what is better than running around feeling the wind in your ears! It seems that I am having a bad run of luck finding a home because the families I have gone to were nice, they just could not commit to me. I don’t require much, just a place to call my own and a little bit of time to run around, fetch a ball, meet other puppy friends-you know typical dog stuff! Kisses, hugs and all that mushy stuff are awesome-I am a total leaner so as long as you don’t mind a little public display of affection then we are good to go! So you think we can get together? Come and meet me because I know as long as you enjoy a quick romp outside we will totally hit it off!!
