Blind and Deaf Dogs
Welcome to the Blind and Deaf Dogs Guidebook
Paws to Adopt has always had a special place in its heart for those special needs and hard to place dogs. Thus, it's proud to present, The Blind and Deaf Dogs Guidebook, with your host Youwho. Youwho is a Staffordshire/Heeler mix who was born blind and deaf. We adopted Youwho back in 2005 when he was just a little stray pup. He's now probably about 7-8 years old and living life to its fullest! He has brought so much joy into our lives that no one could ever give us but him! He's one of the friendliest dogs you'll met and just adores people despite once being abandoned by them. He is an amazing dog who is full of so much love! Some people might question the quality of life of a blind and deaf dog, but Youwho's proof that they can have a normal as well as fun life like any other dog! The only issue I faced living with a blind and deaf dog was that there was no information about training or living with one! There were tons of deaf dog or blind dog information, but none regarding both blind and deaf dogs. So, after having Youwho for a couple of months, I came up with my own routine and training techniques and so this guidebook was born. I thought it'd be helpful to others who have blind and deaf dogs to share what I've learned with Youwho well as show that a blind and deaf dog can live a happy and healthy life!
