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 www.petfinder.com, 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:

I-16 EXTREMELY URGENT! LAST CHANCE! THIS PET WILL DIE 12/30/09!
- Breed: Dalmatian
- Sex: Male
- Age: Adult
- Size: Medium
- ID: 0012976 Coweta AC
- SPECIAL NEEDS: DEAF!
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.
Please.....please.....PLEASE....do 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.

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 email@example.com.

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 GEBDR@yahoo.com

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.
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.

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.
A VOLUNTEER WRITES:
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.

This handsome boy was turned in to the shelter by his owner to have him euthanized because he is deaf. We were told he is around 7 years old. Don't have any other information on him at this time. He is horrified! Confused and scared. And who can blame him?
Please contact me if you know of anyone who can save him. Approved rescues only! Pictures attached. He needs to be out by Tuesday, Dec 1.

Her name is Lilly and she is a blind/deaf pit puppy. She is at the Waco TX Animal Shelter and call Fallon at 254-754-1454.
Please Forward this angel! I am desperate to save her. She is so sweet and so scared. She came in as a stray all alone (on my first day at the shelter). She is currently in my office and comfy. I would love for her to go to a rescue for deaf/blind dogs. I feel she would do better with a companion. Being that she is at the city shelter though I do not want to take a chance on her getting sick from another puppy. She's been dewormed and had her first shot. HELP!!

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 CCSPCA_Foster@yahoo.com or by cell phone 609-330-1393. Thank you

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 newbeginningsanimalrescue@
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: Bnsmith122@yahoo.com
Thank you so much,

I really need a foster or permanent home asap. This pet was dropped off at a vet's clinic & the owner was going to have this very very sweet dog euthanized because she just does not want to be bothered with her anymore. The clinic has called me to assist. They did not want to euthanize because of her gentle & kind nature. Daisy is a great dog. Good with cats, dogs, kids. Housetrained. I have also attached 2 photos. Daisy is healthy & fully vetted.- born deaf. She is still happy & playful. Pls have any interested party call me asap. She cannot remain at the clinic very long.

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

Sonya is a gorgeous odd eye solid white cat who is about 2 years old. She is completely deaf but what a great personality. She was surrendered to a shelter in Virginia because her owner became ill. A shelter with too many nice cats and too few adoptions. Poor Sonya ran out of time and the shelter staff asked Fancy Cats to help her! She will make a wonderful companion to some lucky someone! Not quite ready to adopt but would like to foster a cat or kitten? Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 703-961-1056 to find out how you can help. Ask for Catherine Awad.
