My story

*This special guy is deaf and will need someone dedicated to his training and learning how to communicate with a deaf dog*

I was found on the street as a puppy 2 years ago. I was starved and desperately needed a bath! I was covered in feces. Thankfully I found help. I got veterinary care, enjoyed a spa day, and even went to doggy school! The kind people at the rescue set me up with a home and I thought I would stay there forever. Sadly, it didn't last. I was in a home shared with multiple people, but it seemed like no one had time for me anymore once I grew out of the puppy phase. Then they said they couldn't afford to have me anymore. That I cost too much to feed. I never wanted to be a burden. I just wanted to be loved. So here I am, back in the rescue and hoping my second chance at adoption goes a lot better. I am a very good boy. I just don't want you to get bored of me and give me away too.
