Guest WoobiesMom Posted September 2, 2007 Report Share Posted September 2, 2007 http://search.petfinder.com/petnote/displa...i?petid=9097867 I've watched this little girl since she came into the Richmond pound. It wasn't known she was deaf then I guess because there was nothing in her description then. She went into the SOS pets program at a local correctional facility and their description now says she's deaf. She's a beauty and I've been hoping someone would scoop her up so I didn't keep seeing that pretty face when I was browsing. I'm such a sucker for a hard luck story and have really been wanting to get Woobie a "wife". There's a woman who frequents the dog park with several Aussies. One of them is deaf also and she says the only problem she really has is that he doesn't know when he's playing too roughly because he can't hear the other dog squeak. Please! Tell me bad things about having a deaf dog. I'd love to get her, I just don't know if Woobie is ready. But I always feel so bad that as much as he loves the dog park, he doesn't have a companion of his own here at home. He so loves other dogs. He's never met one he hasn't adored. Anyone with deaf dog experience out there? How do they adjust to dogs they haven't grown up with? How does the other dog know how not to startle them when waking them? So many questions, but gosh, every time I see her I get that feeling that I had when I saw Woobie's pic, like maybe she's "the one". Sigh.....
