Deaf Dogo Pup in FL

UPDATE: She went to a home with a guy who has a deaf greyhound. Kudos!

This gorgeous girl needs to find a rescue that can help her and get her placed with the right family. She was saved from a Backyard Breeder that was going to dump her when she discovered that she's DEAF and couldn't make money since she's "defective"!

Here's what we know about Luna:
  • Intact Female PB Dogo Argentino

  • Vaccines current (except rabies)
  • Crate trained
  • Working on being house broken
  • Very Sweet and Playful
  • Gets along with dogs, kids and cats (she's afraid of cats)

Deaf Pit Mix in Evansville, IN

So, unfortuantely we had a fall out with our deaf dog Snow White. We got her pulled into rescue temporarily because we had an adopter lined up. The adopter was supposed to pick her up today. She decided to not go through with the adoption because her dog is ill (a bunch of excuses from what it sounded like). So, the temporary foster could only foster her through this afternoon, as she is going out of town early tomorrow morning. We had NOWHERE for her to go, our fosters are full to the brim. We have several notices posted online looking for a foster, but nothing has come through. We had to take her back to the shelter tonight, poor baby. If there is anything you can do please let me know, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.


Deaf Catahoula Mix in SC

Hey Guys, please take a look at Dixie, a deaf catahoula mix who was rescued from the shelter after her rescuer learned that animal control had been called to pick her up! Dixie is about 3 yrs old, very sweet and happy. She likes children but would need some training because she gets so excited she may knock them down. These pics do not do her justice! Dixie has a beautiful coat and beautiful blue eyes. She will need someone who is willing to work with her due to her being deaf. She is up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, spayed, and ready for adoption!
If you are interested in Dixie, please contact me. Transport will be arranged to approved receiver! Contact: Rhonda Sims

Deaf Dalmatian Mix in Asheville, NC

Rescue promised then backed out!!!!!

"Bones" is a 11 month old 50 pound totally deaf Dalmatian mix who desperately needs her forever family. Her owner was going to leave her at the local kill shelter, so I took her in, hoping to find a place for her. She is crate trained, housebroken, fully vetted, microchipped, and in very short term foster. They will euthanize her in three days if she has to go to the shelter. Bones was named after the television show but her name can easily be changed since she can't hear it anyway, lol. She is playful and energetic and gets along with EVERYONE, including cats, kids, and other dogs. Please help me find an appropriate home for Bones with a fenced yard or a rescue willing to help. No rescue or adoption fee but references will be checked. Email me at or phone 828-837-0521. Please, please help this poor dog. She doesn't deserve to be left behind.

Thanks so much, Terry.

Aussie in TN Seeks a Caring Person

Male Australian Shepherd

Left her boyfriend & moved in with sister. Sister's dog does not like him.

DEAF, mostly white with blue eyes.

Sweet temperament as long as he knows you are there. If you sneak up on him, it scares him and he gets a little defensive.

He seems to prefer women over men; neutered but not up-to-date with shots; willing to make a donation to whomever can help him; right now he is stuck in a pen outside, because sister's dog does not like him.

Thanks for all your help. Bandit has never been an inside dog so he's not houstrained.

Deaf Dalmatian in CA in Need of a Loving Home

Breed: Dalmatian
Age/Sex: 7 years old/Female

I have a dog here named Gertrude that I'm going to beg for your help with. She a dalmatian and is approx. 7 years old. She is deaf. I have been working with Dalmatian rescue to get her out of here but a few have said no due to her age and the other one has no room at this time. She wasn't spayed before she came her so we spayed her here and we also removed some mammary tumors. We biopsied the tumors and the came back benign. I'm really worried about her because she has be declining behavioral ever since her surgery. She needs to go into a dalmatian savvy home because she can be snappy sometimes. But she wasn't really like that before her surgery so I think it might be due to her surgery or her length of stay here. I'm really getting desperate because I think she truly deserves a second chance in a home that can give her the time to come around and are very dalmatian smart. Please let me know if you are interested.

Another Deaf Cat in GA Needs Help!

UPDATE: Marco has been adopted. Thanks Bruce for the tip.

No: 5383 Name: Marco

Meet this Beautiful Solid White Medium Length Neutered who is 4 years of age. He is DEAF but so loveable and velvet to the touch. He will watch you as you talk and move towards him slowly and when the trust arises he enjoys the petting and attention. Marco came to the Douglas County Shelter by persons stating their neighbors abandoned him 3 months ago when they moved. He will have to be an inside boy permanently due to ineffectiveness of protecting himself, but the main reason is because he deserves to be cared for and loved.

Deaf Black Cat in NY


Her estimated age is 10+ years. She is deaf (not known if congenital) and does not have a thyroid problem, which was reported as a possibility in the original blurb. She does have a heart murmur. She would do very well with an older person, as she is very affectionate and would be a great lap kitty.

She came to the shelter because Animal Control caught several young kids beating her with sticks and they took her to the no kill, so she has been badly abused. Nevertheless, she is affectionate and really needs a special guardian angel.

Deaf Aussie in TX

UPDATE: Bear was taken by the Hill Country Animal League. Their ph# is 830-249-2341.
This is Bear... a neutered male Australian Shepherd who was surrendered by his owners because they had to move closer to where their son is being treted for Leukemia. The family knew that they would not have time for Bear and responsibly surrendered him rather than trying to give him the proper attention he needs and would not have time for. Bear is deaf and requires a special owner who has worked with deaf dogs before or someone who is willing to learn how. He is 5 years old. Does NOT like cats but does like other dogs, plays well with children, likes riding in the car, walks on a leash. He is also very friendly and loving. He has been given a 24 hour flea treatment and does seem to have some sort of skin allergy.

Deaf Border Collie Needs Help in KS

Rogue (a.k.a. Cricket)

She is a pure breed Border Collie. She was born in May 2008 and is completely deaf.

She knows several hand signals, including come, sit, down and stay. She's highly trainable. When she came to us, she did not understanding pointing and now will follow your finger's direction.

She needs lots of affection, positive reinforcement and exercise. She loves to play fetch, especially with her Jolly Ball. She doesn't come to humans asking for affection but is relaxes and enjoys it when given. Rogue didn't used to wag her tail when we approached her but now wags her tail. Slow to trust, after she's comfortable with you, she will come sit next to you and cuddle, which makes working with her very rewarding.

An ideal home for her would not include other pets. She doesn't get along with other dogs, male or female. She's playful at first but overcompensates with aggression to a slight challenge. A fenced in backyard would allow her to run, though she is good on a tether, too. An ideal owner would be familiar with the breed and have an active life style. She's a great walking partner, especially since other barking dogs in the neighborhood don't bother her. She also travels well; she was very well behaved at a horse show surrounded by lots of people and horses.

Typical of deaf Border Collies, she herds shadows into corners and snaps at invisible flies. She does this when she retreats into her own world. Exercise, affection and interaction brings her out of it. As she gets to know you and trust you, she will do this less.

She's house broken and kennel trained. She loves food and lots of water. She very motivated by food and has a diverse palate. She even loves apples.

Despite her hearing challenges and sometimes withdrawn behavior, she will become affectionate when routine, security and trust are established. She is a very rewarding dog to be with.

We are saddened not to be able to keep her. During a scuffle between our Border Collie and her, as I was separating them, my arm was in between her and our dog and bit me. Due to circumstances which include my pregnancy, we regrettedly cannot care for her.

As standard policy of the shelter we foster for, she's was in a mandated 10 day rabies observation, which ends this week. The shelter cannot provide a dog free home for her. Without a place to go, she may more than likely be terminated this week.

Please help us find a safe and caring home for her. If you have any questions, please contact us. Patrick at 816-516-6630 or Mindy at 816-678-3414. Email:

Deaf Kittens (sisters) Time is Running Out in GA

Star and Moon were owner turn ins. The owner said that her mom cat had kittens in her house and these two kittens were wild and wouldn't come to her! We think that they may be deaf. One has blue eyes and the other wouldn't look at us today during pictures. They are beautiful kittens we think about 5 months old. Animals at this facility are subject to euthanasia after a 5 day holding period. Owner turn-ins have no required holding period. PLEASE call the shelter at 706-857-0679 ASAP if you are interested in adoption or rescue.

Deaf Bull Terrier on Euthansia List in TX

He is 1.5 years old
Obedient class x 2 and did well.
Friendly and affectionate.
HW Neg.

Casper is great with all people large and small. He has had obedience training and knows some signs. He is curious about cats. We took him in the cat room today and he walked around and smell the cats and investigated, but he never wanted to chase them or bother them. He wagged his tail the whole time. He is good with small breed dogs and female large breed dogs. He does not get along with large breed males all the time. I have had him with males at the shelter and he has done fine. So you never know who he is going to have a problem with. He is very friendly and well socialized. He will pull on the leash but I think that is from being kenneled so long.
Thank you for your time and consideration. Casper is worth saving. I am willing to help with transport to where ever nexassary to guarentee his safety.

Deaf Pit Bull Needs Help in FL

UPDATE: Picture of Fiona with her new family:

PLEASE meet Fiona. This little lady needs all of us to cross post for her in order to find her a foster or a forever home. As beautiful as she is, she was found running the streets with a
raggedy piece of rope tied around her neck and, of course, no microchip. To boot, Fiona was running scared as she is deaf, and unsocialized. Fiona needs a family with a little patience, one who will work with her and who will love her unconditionally. She is very friendly as she kept giving me kisses in my ear the entire time I was transporting her to our rescue vet. Her markings are truly exquisite! As of this morning (September 1) Fiona is now fully vetted, spayed and heartworm negative. Upon her pick up from our rescue vet Fiona sooooo needs somewhere to go to know some stability!! No more transitions and being bumped around from place to place for this little lady. If willing and/or able to help, please contact I thank you and Fiona will most definitely thank you with lots of kisses of appreciation!!
