Pryor, OK: Mixed Breed Need a Rescue

Contact people: by phone, Sandy Ray, Pryor Animal League at 918-864-1077 or by email, Tanya Kittrell at pupsavr4life@

Please help me find this guy a safe place to go. He was surrendered to the city shelter when the owners discovered he was deaf. I took him home before he could be euthanized. He truly needs someone that has experience with deaf dogs and can train him.

Tonka is an 11 month old Whippet/Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix (DNA analysis was completed). He is a sweetheart but needs someone who is experienced with deaf dogs. He has been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. He gets along great with other dogs. As you can tell by the 2nd picture he is a snuggler. He is always on top of another dog. He is approximately 40 lbs and is crate trained. I have a house full of small dogs (under 10 lbs) and he can get a little too rough when playing with them. He also tries to lay on top of them to He can't hear their warnings to stop so the poor guy ends up with a tiny dog biting his bottom. If anyone can help,
it would be greatly appreciated.

Please crosspost as you see fit.

Thank you everyone.
