Meet Domino! Domino is deaf, but don’t let that stop you from letting this awesome dog into your life. At times, you would not even notice. Domino is a medium energy dog; he loves to play with the other dogs but NEEDS TO BE THE ONLY DOG in the house, he is also content to just relax with the humans. Domino understands a few hand signals, and his foster family has been using a vibrate only collar to better communicate with him. Domino is also very smart, potty trained and quickly learned how to use the doggy door. Domino also does fine if left uncrated for a few hours.
Domino loves to run and play and would do best in a house with NO KIDS UNDER 15. Since he is deaf, Domino also likes to maintain eye contact with his humans. This means on walks he is always checking in with you. He can become vocal if he cannot see you, or if he is crated alone. He does calm down but he may not be suited for an apartment. Also, as a deaf dog, Domino does not react to loud noises that may cause other dogs to bark.
Training a deaf dog is no more difficult than training a hearing dog; however, it requires a different approach and maybe a little more patience. If you’re ready to meet an potential adventure buddy, and Velcro dog, then Domino is waiting for you!
