Storm came to us from a breeder unable to place her due to her deafness. She is a wiggle butt full of personality, loves everyone she meets and is a cuddle bug. She is very intelligent and curious, must have her nose into whatever it is you are doing. She is simply you average young Boxer who is playful and enjoys going for walks/hikes. Because she is deaf, she will need a protective parent who is responsible and conscience of the fact that she will not hear you when you call her name and who will not hear any kind of traffic. She will also startle easily when sleeping (because of this we do recommend she not go to a home with children under 8 years of age) and will not alert to an intruder. The perks of a deaf dog though, she will not hear fireworks, the vacuum, or the lawn mower! :)
