Deaf Dogs Such a Blessing

Deaf Dogs Such a Blessing

This is a short post and video about deaf dogs and what a blessing they can be to their owners. This short video shows how one or more caring humans decided to do something to change the life of a 3 year old Pit Bull.

Facing adoption issues for reasons like being deaf, being 3 years old and being a Pit Bull meant that Rosie didn’t have much to look forward to as far as adoption goes. I don’t want to tell the whole story here so……….

I know from personal experience that a deaf dog is a blessing. My sweet Tessa was deaf for the 2nd half of her life. I can’t imagine what that must have been like for her having been a hearing dog for many years then suddenly she is a deaf dog. Dogs seem so adaptable to their circumstances. Whether it’s being deaf, going blind or missing a leg they seem to just keep going no matter what. We only had a couple of signs we both understood. Most of it was just in the eyes.

I had a sign for “no more” because she never got her fill of food. I also had a sign for “come” which she

always did. She was so much the perfect dog, so loving, so patient, so willing to please and so appreciative of whatever she was given. Whether it was a walk or a hug she seemed to love it more than most dogs.

A word of advice or caution: ┬áIf you suspect a problem with your pet do not wait until the weekend even if you have an emergency clinic. Blood needs to be drawn and sent out and you wait, you wait with your precious sick dog. Sometimes there just isn’t enough time.

My sweet Tessa went to the Rainbow Bridge almost two weeks ago now. Thank you Sweet Tessa for everything you gave, and you did give us so very much. Tessa was a Ruby Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.

I didn’t mean for this to turn into a memorial for her. It was just on my mind. I wish for you to consider a deaf dog a blessing. If you ever have the opportunity to adopt a deaf dog I hope you will consider it. They give so much. It was never an inconvenience for us. Sure, it would have been great for her to have been a hearing dog but we can’t control what life has in store for us. We simply have to deal with it to the best of our ability.

I hope you watched and enjoyed the video and that your eyes have been opened about how deaf dogs can be a blessing. You don’t need sign language. You will develop your own language between your deaf dog and yourself. It’s very natural and easy.

  1. Bill, great article and video, we have a couple of deaf dogs who come to our dog day care facility, Happy Hound Dog Resorts, and their owners are more proud of them because, well, they are special. They may be deaf, but their noses work, and they still love a good cow trachea. Every dog is special.

    Take care,
