Deaf Dog Jake's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, and in need of an experienced adopter.

Deaf Dog Jake's Story...
Deaf dog Jake is in need of a person who will love him and not discriminate against him because he is deaf, or is a bully breed. Jake just wants to be by your side, follow you around the house and yard and be on the receiving end of what true human love and affection feels like.

Age: Approx. 3 yrs., Neutered, HW Neg. We wouldn't recommend kids, he is very strong and gets excitable when playing in yard with his ball in his mouth. He does currently reside with an 11 yr old canine sister.

Jake desperately needs a human who has a ton of affection and love to give him. His current human has suffered some health set backs. A patient person with calm energy to sooth him during his times of anxiety or uncertainty. He does recognize what affection and love is. He will give you kisses, wag his tail and just want to be by your side. Jake does know some hand signals and does communicate that way.

a person who is calm, patient, loving and kind;
a person who will put sunscreen on his ears when he is outside in the summer heat;
a person who will throw the ball and tire him out;
a person who will take him for walks;
a person who allows him on the couch, gaze out the picture window;
a person who will put medicine on his boo boos, clean his ears, give him a bath;
a person who will take him to the vet;
a person who recognizes he is strong and fearless, but one who does not fear him and is strong enough to handle him;
a person who understands his needs, his temperament, energies and who will work with him to provide him with social and emotional nurturing and who can calm his impatient moments;
a person who does not scold, hit, neglect, or lose their temper;
a person who will not crate for more than 8.5 hours a day;
a home where he could possibly be the only dogwho receives loves and gives it back unconditionally, although he does currently live with an 11 yr. old canine sister;
a person who understands him;
a person who WON'T GIVE UP ON HIM!

Jake does not live with children or cats. He is really not all that much work as one would expect a deaf dog to be.

Deaf dogs make amazing pets. They are not harder to train, just different. You can make a difference in the life of a deaf dog! Deaf dogs can live a full fun-filled life just like their hearing canine pals.

Jake is in the Wayne County Detroit area. I am his former foster mom who does see Jake on occasion. I know what Jake is all about and can gladly spend time with an approved adopter to teach him/her all about Jake and assist with his transition. Please email me at if you are serious and can meet the criteria above and then some. :)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Deaf Dog Jake, a Melvindale Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Melvindale, or seeking a Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Melvindale.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Melvindale already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Melvindale breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Melvindale paves the way for another one to be saved.
