This is my rescue dog. He is 5 years old now. I got him when he was a little puppy. I found out he was deaf pretty soon after I brought him home. It has been an interesting journey with him. I have actually learned doggy sign language in order to communicate with him. (You can find great videos on youtube)
I did not think I had the time or patience for an animal until he came along. Somehow we make the room in our lives for the things that are important to us. It certainly is not always convenient. Many times it is frustrating. But when somebody needs you and loves you, it is a very good feeling.
There are rescue animals who need homes everywhere. If you have a love for animals and would like to feel needed – please find one.
