Update Sat 9/25: Khan is a fantastic little dog! Even though he’s deaf, he’s incredibly outgoing and doesn’t seem to suffer from his “disability” at all. He loves being cuddled in laps, but is also very active and would benefit from a walk every day. Even though Khan is deaf, it doesn’t mean that he can’t be trained. Dogs can actually learn visual cues easier and more quickly than verbal cues, so Khan should have no problem with obedience training. Khan’s previous family reports that he is house-trained, great with children, and friendly with other dogs and cats. He also likes children, which is a definitely plus for such a small dog since they can be frightened around children. He also doesn’t seem to mind having his teeth or ears checked or his paws handled and rolled over submissively on his back without a problem. I’d say he passed his quick evaluation with flying colors! Even though Khan is cute, tiny, and adorable, he can’t be adopted by just anyone. His new owner will need to be committed to his training so that Khan can be as well-behaved and safe as possible. It can be a very dangerous world for a deaf dog! As of Saturday afternon, Khan doesn’t have any adoption or rescue applications. The pound is filled to capacity, so he needs to be rescued or adopted as soon as possible!
