Well, I am deaf and don't walk as I should since I cannot hear cars or such when walking. I went to the shelter here in town to see about getting a dog to train as a hearing assistance dog. Well - I found a very sweet guy there. His name is Deacon. He is listed as a pit bull, but we found he is actually an American Bulldog.
For me, the eyes just say it all.
I get to go tomorrow and we will take our current dog Buddy to see if they get along. If they do, then Deacon is mine. Oh, one of the best parts is, during the month of January at this shelter, all dogs over 50 pounds are - - - - - - -FREE!!!
With having Deacon here, I will get out an walk more. I will be the one responsible for him and a friend will work with me in training him to be a hearing assistance dog.
Here's a picture of Buddy.
I can just see them being friends. Sammy the cat will wonder what's going on and probably hide for a few days.
