My story

Please contact Tonya Griffith ( for more information about this pet.

Posted 2/18/18, and pictures updated 5/10/20.  DEAF MALE RED HEELER PUPPY FOUND ON 1/19/18 IN TYLER, TX. A neighbor brought this little puppy to me on Friday, 1/19/18, at around 5:00 p.m., and said the puppy was traveling the road with an adult male dog that looked similar to the puppy, but the puppy came to him in his yard while the other dog kept going. I put some food down for him, and he ate like he was starving. I gave him the name Brody.

On Saturday, 1/20/18, I noticed that he did not stir while sleeping no matter what the noise was. I was able to get him in to the Gresham Veterinary Hospital on Tuesday, 1/23/18, to get vaccinated, and check his inner ears since he can bark. We had a Yellow Lab years ago that was born deaf, and made noises instead of barking. The puppie's ears looked good, he weighed 10.6 pounds, and was estimated to be 10 weeks old, so date of birth is around November 14, 2017.  Brody was neutered on 2/17/18, weighed 21.6 pounds, and still growing.  As of 5/10/20, he is 93 pounds.

Brody is very playful, does not like to be by himself, and will be vocal about it.  He requires a fenced yard, and another dog that can hear to guide him and play with him.  Vehicles should not be moved around him without knowing where he is, and he is not an apartment dog.  I am working on house training him, and he is doing good.  He is crate trained, and likes sleeping on a dog bed in his crate.  His fur is very soft, and he loves attention from people.

Adoption fee is $80, which includes his neuter and vaccinations.

Adoption contracts must be signed upon adoption approval and any pet history information is provided with each adoption.

Go meet their pets

It depends on who has the pet. We don't advertise our address to keep people from dumping animals on our road anymore than they usually do, especially since this is also where we live. I like to visit with a person on the phone first before letting them come meet the pet.

More about this rescue

This is a small animal rescue for cats and dogs. I have several foster homes in various areas, and I also do courtesy postings for people who need help finding a home for their pet, which is about 80% successful. The pet doesn't have to enter a rescue or shelter and the owner is contacted, so they decide who their pet goes to. If a person can't send me pictures, and they don't live too far away, I will go and videotape the pet myself to place pictures on the internet, or have a volunteer get the pictures. There have been a few pets that haven't been able to find a home through this service, but it depends on what the pet is and who is looking on the internet. When we have space available we take transfers from a local kill animal shelter. We also step in and help people who find themselves with multiple animals and no way to pay to get them fixed. Usually I will get all the females fixed to get their circumstances under control, and in some cases I will also help with donated food when I have extra. If they want to find homes for some of the many pets they have accumulated, then I will place their pictures on the internet for them. We don't euthanize unless a pet is seriously ill.
