Well, another weekend, another transport for mom.
Hey mom....that isn't a bloodhound.
Nope this is Shadow an australian shepard pup rescued by Speak for the Unspoken
- a local rescue that specializes in placing special needs animals (mostly dogs).
Shadow is a white pup with blue merle markings and blue eyes. And yep....he is deaf. So is he high energy with a herding instinct and no ability to hear people. Well, he had been adopted and one of the drivers on the original transport fell in love with him. He was returned due to his energy level (sigh) and when the woman found this out, she called the rescue and said she wanted him. She has other dogs and knows about training and herding breeds. The rescue put him in foster for a quick re-evaluation to make sure nothing else was going on with him and then on Saturday packed him up and sent him on his way.
He spent most of the trip with mom snoozing in the back seat. We got an update Saturday night and he was safe in his new home already being loved on by his new mom and new pack. We love us a good happy ending.
Aw, poor sweetie! I'm glad he finally got his happy ending! What a cutie!ReplyDelete
Purrz for Shadow and that he learns new ways to "hear" his people. - Katie Kat.ReplyDelete
Purrs for sweet Shadow ! We wonder if there is a kind of sign language for dogs as it exists for humans... PurrsReplyDelete
there is sign language for dogs - and hand signals for basic commands. the hardest part is getting their attention.Delete
Oh, he is just a sweetie, what a love! We're so glad he's got a terrific forever home now!ReplyDelete
Awwww he is a beauty!!! Wishing him well with his lovely new family! Well done mum too! Take careReplyDelete
What a handsome pup - he has the sweetest face. We are delighted to see that the lady who transported him has decided to adopt him into her family.ReplyDelete

What a little angel! How wonderful that he now has a loving family and hopefully he can learn some sign language too!ReplyDelete

So nice of you to transport! Sending some Chi-rish luck his way for a good home! Love, O'Crepes.ReplyDelete
Oh that is terrific that he found a home. I am sure he will do just fine and learn to watch his Mom and know what to do. They are so darn smart. They are my favorite kind of dog. Hope all of you have a great day.ReplyDelete

He's a gorgeous puppy! We know he will learn sign language in no time and enjoy the pack :)ReplyDelete
A herding dog without the ability to hear commands, the poor guy. But now he's where patience and love will be given.ReplyDelete
but just think - he can herd whatever he wants and never know the difference :)Delete
True. He'd be happy - maybe not so the owners of what he chooses to herd!Delete
