Charlie was pulled from a kill shelter in NC - one that uses a gas chamber and Charlie was scheduled to be in it the morning we pulled him. Charlie was born deaf, which made his chance of being adopted there zero. The truth is, though, that a deaf dog can do anything a hearing dog can - except hear. Many hearing dogs are taught commands using a combination of voice and hand signals. Deaf dogs are trained using just the hand signals. Charlie has been with a foster who has not only worked with him on housebreaking, but has started him on learning commands using hand signals. What he needs now is a forever home with a loving family. There are wonderful resources available for owners of deaf dogs, including on-line forums, informational websites, and other owners of deaf dogs. Charlie is beautiful - he has the blue eyes of a Catahoula, with the spotting pattern of the Treeing Walker Coonhound, except that some of his spots have the gradiated color of the Catahoula. You have to meet him to understand just how sweet and loving this boy is!
