Subject: Considering adopting a deaf dog

We are considering adopting a deaf dog, a dalmatian. We have been reading a variety of things on the internet and thought it would be helpful to have some input from people who actually own a deaf dog. I am most concerned about the claims that a deaf dog can become aggressive due the "startle effect." Have any of you found this to be true? Has your dog bitten you or someone else, or attacked another animal due to this? I have also read that you can train them so the startle effect is lessened. Wondering also if that is true. Thanks for any help!
