There's some information about beginning training Here. There are also links there that you might find helpful - the ASL Browser is great for learning signs.

Also, please visit the Deaf Dogs Education Action Fund (DDEAF) - you can list Blizzy on their "Dogs Available For Adoption" page. Puppies are often adopted pretty quickly.

BTW, deaf dogs ARE 100% normal, they just don't hear. :-)

If there is a JRT rescue in your area, you might want to contact them. Sometimes, rescues are willing to do a "courtesy listing" for dogs not in their rescue program. Someone looking for a JRT puppy might consider a deafie.

Good luck!
