Meet Sunny - Sunny is approx 9 months old and is FULL of life and puppy love.
Sunny is what is called a Double Dapple and he is both Blind & Deaf which does present its own unique challenges for training, although he is learning.
'Our perception of what a blind and deaf dog might experience may lead us to put limits on what they can and will accomplish. If we think they will just sit there, how much of a chance will we give them to do otherwise? Don't let your perception of another create limits in your thinking - or in their potential.' (credit to white dog blog)
Sunny is not only cute and handsome he is just a joy to be around. How he goes through life each day could be a lesson to all humans and his future family will need to understand that he is not like other dogs - but that does not make him Dis-Abled...
With Sunny - patience is a must. Because seeing and hearing can not be part of his training process, his future family will need invest in their training time with Sunny - but the reward will be great. He is a very smart dog!
Sunny is not fond of the crate although at times will wonder in and lay down in the bed, he is learning to trust the crate as a safe place but when he is first crated or confined will bark for a few minutes before settling down. (He prefers to be a free roaming dog)
Sunny does walk well on a leash and will go outside to do his business when taken often, however if not on a schedule he will go in the house, remember he is still a young pup in training.
