Hootie - Deaf's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Hootie - Deaf's Story...
Are you looking for a 4-legged best friend. Hootie is a deaf, neutered, micro-chipped, American Bulldog approx. 15 months old and up-to-date on his vaccines. This tail wagging silly, happy boy loves life itself even if he can't hear the birds chirping. A deaf dog does not mean difficult to handle or communicate with. You just communicate with your eyes and hands. Hootie has been taught a few hand signals. Additionally, we use a vibration/stimulation training collar to aide with communication. We still talk to him as if he can hear us, why not! He loves people and will thrive with a gentle, affectionate, confident person. His chosen adopter will need to follow through with his routines and training that we have spent many hours working with him on, to keep him balanced, happy and structured. Hootie cannot hear cars or loud noises so he will rely on you to make sure he is safe and out of harms way. He is crate trained and potty trained. He would love to have another canine family member, ideally a spayed female in the same age range. Cats are not recommended, nor are young children.

His foster parents have devoted a lot of time to his well-being and we hope there is a special person or couple with a loving and stable home environment who will love him just as much. Hootie can easily be a best friend to a retiree or a teacher who has the summer off. Human companionship and a possible canine pal to chum with is his dream home. Patience and unconditional love are a must!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Hootie - Deaf, a Melvindale American Bulldog/American Staffordshire Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Bulldog/American Staffordshire Terrier for sale in Melvindale, or seeking a American Bulldog/American Staffordshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Melvindale.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Melvindale already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Melvindale breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even American Bulldog/American Staffordshire Terrier breeders who help with American Bulldog/American Staffordshire Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Melvindale paves the way for another one to be saved.
