Diesel2Hello all! It's be a little over a year now since we adopted Diesel (once known as Opie).  He's already almost two, and the time with him has flown by! He is doing wonderful. He knows how to sit, wait, lay down, fetch and much more! He was hunting last fall and will be going again this fall.

He and Jayda (our other dog) have become quite a pair, nearly inseparable. Diesel loves to be at the lake, and he has even become greatly fond of "dock jumping.

RazHi my name is Raz (formerly known as Snowball). I was in the Tri-County Humane Society from the time I was about 5 weeks old to when my new owner adopted me at about 5.5 months old! As you can see I only have one eye, but that doesn't make me any different from cats with two eyes (besides that I run into things a little more)! I love my new house, I live with two other cats, and two dogs too, so there is never a dull moment around here. I love to be at my owners ankles all of the time and I also love to get my belly scratched and watch everything outside while I sit on the windowsill in the kitchen! I'm into everything, and my absolute favorite hobby is playing in the water bowls, but I can't help myself, it's just so fun!!

It has happened so many times, a “bad dog” is abandoned at a shelter. Finally someone takes a minute to examine the dog and finds that he/she is deaf. Being deaf may make your dog appear to be disobedient or even defiant, when in reality they truly do not grasp the goals at hand.

Once a dog is diagnosed as deaf, their family can learn to communicate with them in different ways. While learning American Sign Language may not be necessary to communicate with your deaf dog, learning about and understanding how to communicate with a deaf dog will allow you and your dog to enjoy a much better relationship and reduce the dog’s chances of being abandoned or worse due to their inability to hear sounds like we assume all dogs do.

Why is it so difficult to recognize our pet is deaf?

Deaf dogs still bark. Maybe they don’t bark in the same way other dogs do, but they will still use their bark instinctively.  This may result in inappropriate barking.  Instead of getting
