Rehomed Deaf Dog Is Certain She’S Going Back To The Shelter Once Again

In the United States, 5-10% of canines are deaf. Some dogs become deaf as they get older, while others are born without hearing. A cochlear gene mutation is usually the cause of hereditary deafness. Dogs with white coats and blue eyes are more likely to develop this type of deafness. A bull named Blue has piercing blue eyes and a white coat deaf blu

I was left unvisited day after day at the animal shelter. Luckily, our co-workers Mark and Sean were looking to adopt a deaf dog in the San Francisco area. Two have been located at Family Dog Rescue. Blue was one of them.She was vibrant and full of life when Mark and Sean first met her at the shelter. Mark told GeoBeats Animals that they “made a strong, immediate connection with Shaun and the rest is very much history.”

Blu’s first owners contacted them to let them know he had been living with them for six years. Blu was placed in a shelter when they were forced to move into a rented house to prevent pit bulls. Blue was one of the guests who stayed in the shelter the longest.

One of the reasons she felt so comfortable around her new parents was because she had been on her own for so long. Blue wasn’t sure of their intentions for her and if they intended to take her back to the shelter. In fact, she was scared on the first car ride we took her to the beach, a few days after we bought her. Mark said, She was shaking in her back. According to Mark and Sean, Blue’s personality expanded because she felt more comfortable around them.

Three years later, Blu still enjoys traveling in cars having received so much love and attention. Blue was aware of Mark and Sean’s love. They and Blu have become so close that they have their own unique style of communication. Blu can determine where they are going by observing her father’s movements, even smelling their feet during a stroll.

She is probably my spirit animal, I think. I can sense when she is stressed, happy or depressed. Sean said, “We read each other really well. Blue realizes that the vibrations on Mark and Sean’s fingers are signs that she is okay. Shun’s stern gaze tells her to calm down. In addition, they worked with a trainer to teach stress-relieving techniques such as stretching.

The fact that Blue is deaf has no bearing on her way of life or her interactions with her new owners. According to Mark, it only affects Blu’s ability to build relationships with other canines. She and my previous deaf dogs weren’t able to recognize many of the small language cues dogs give each other, according to Mark. Deaf dogs can hear with their hearts. Sean said: “I don’t think I would ever own a deaf dog because they are so special and adorable.”

They said Blue is unimpressed by holidays filled with fireworks, which are unpopular with dogs. Nice to see what Blu means to Mark and Sean. The reciprocity of affection is also evident. Blue seems comfortable with her new family, happy and healthy. We’re thrilled that Blu found a place to call her new parents home. Below, you can watch the heartwarming tale of pit bull Blu and her parents.
