She does not know she's blind and deaf. She thinks she's a typical dog - and she's right. She can run and play and bark and learn. She is currently enrolled in puppy classes and has learned sit, down, stand and stay with a food lure and touch commands. She is very bright and eager to please.
Any adopter will have to enroll in a MANDATORY training program for blind and deaf dogs. With proper training, these dogs can do ANYTHING hearing and sighted dogs can do.
Please consider adopting Lassie. She is wonderful. If you think that Lassie is a good fit for your home, please fill out an application at www.boxersandbuddies.com
