I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
Bullet has never really known the comforts a real home has to offer. He was given away when his breeder determined he was deaf. He came close to being put to sleep when his 2nd owner moved. The caring matriarch stepped in and saved him but he was too strong for her weak back so Bullet was passed to another family member.
Busy lifestyles meant Bullet spent 23 hours a day in a rabbit crate. As expected his hour of freedom was spent in high gear bouncing off the walls. His owner knew he deserved a better life and surrendered him to rescue.
Bullet loves to play, play with his toys, tug-a-war and with you. He's very affectionate, house and crate trained and now uses a doggie door. We think he's between 4-5 y/o. He's a 23 lb ball of energy but he's quickly learning to pace himself. Bullet is neutered and current on his vacations.
He's interested in everything and everything is new and exciting. He wants to be on the move and with you all the time. He soaks up attention and kindness like a sponge. He derives great joy from knocking over any and all trash cans. : .) He gets excited when going for a ride. He had an absolute ball at the dog park (no dogs) exploring all the new sights and smells.
When he's tired he loves to nap on my lap or by my feet. His deafness is hardly a handicap and doesn't stand in his way when it comes to fun. He's a pretty sharp boy and quickly caught on to hand signals. So far he responds to, sit, stay and come. Bullet shared his former home with another small dog. He's dog friendly but prefers to pick his playmates.
Bullet is a real people hound, loving affection and attention. A family with older dog savvy children (over twelve), would be a plus. This is a sweet, playful dog craving plenty of fun time with his family. I'd like to see him have a nice fenced yard to run in. Bullet should share a home with another playful dog. He's a fabulous dog and will make someone very happy. He definitely needs structure and some deaf dog training. Although he is okay with his crate, I know he would looooove to find a new home where he could sleep in bed with his owners!
I found plenty of websites dealing with canine deafness and training. It is my greatest wish that Bullet's next home will be his last home!
