I had a comfy home with a person who loved me. Every dog’s dream, right? Especially for me because I’m deaf, so I was lucky to be with a person who knows that deaf dogs can be fun, loving companions just like hearing dogs; we’re not harder, just different. But then my person moved to a ranch and she worried about me in those wide open spaces. So she brought me here, with many important messages. For instance, she said I was housetrained, liked to play with larger dogs, okay with cats, (not okay with chickens), and good with all the kids who visited our home. I’m a 6-year-old, 44-pound Red Heeler, leash-trained, happy, energetic and friendly. I understand hand commands, and if you say I can be yours, I’ll hear you with my heart.
