Subject: Re: I sold a deaf male puppy to a friend
In reply to: Sonya Dominguez 's message, "I sold a deaf male puppy to a friend" on 17:15:12 12/28/05 Wed

I would love to discuss this over the phone with you or the owner. I have a deaf dog that is a working dog. She had a lot of aggression in her when I got her and have worked it out. The key with any dog is to be consistent and patient and positive. Of all my dogs, (3), the only difference between the deaf dog and the others is that I don't take her off lead outside. Remember, hearing is not a dogs predominant sense. Smell is. Also, a dog needs food, praise, and purpose. If the Husband is willing to take a very active role in being the dogs pack leader, and the parents set firm rules for both dog an boy, all should be fine. This would be my advice for ANY dog, not just a deaf pit bull. Feel free to email me a number I can reach you at and I will call you to discuss.
