As to getting an older hearing dog, you'll really want to think about it. It is true that having hearing dogs helps. My deaf Sheltie comes in from the yard when I call the hearing dogs, and they come in. He sees them run to the door and comes along, too. Basically, I can control where he goes because he goes where I tell the hearing dogs to go. It is nice. I could control where he goes even without the hearing dogs though.

However, adopting another dog ia a big responsibility. I'm sure you realize this. It's not just adopting a playmate, but another dog you'll have to train, love, feed, etc. I personally don't know if I'd like to try to train two new dogs at the same time, especially if one is a puppy. What work! I intentionally space my new dogs apart, so I can fully focus on the new arrival's training. But, if you're aware of the extra work and want to tackle it, have fun!
