When my family’s life changed—the oldest child left for college and mom’s health meant she couldn’t take care of me anymore—we had to say goodbye. But I can find a new home, right? A someone who’ll love me forever! I should mention I’m deaf; other dogs use hand signals, too, but I pay especially close attention. Maybe you’ll have fun learning sign language for words like sit, down, stay. For me, fun includes going for walks (I need to lose a few pounds), playing with toys, and watching TV. I’m a 3-year-old Staffie mix female, who’s been territorial with other dogs, but with people I’m sweet and loving. Indeed, friends say to know me is to love me, and I bet the same is true of you, so let’s be loveable together!
