He is adorable. I don't know anyone who does rescue in Canada but surely someone does. The deafness at a young is a no biggee...there's nothing to adjust too since he was probably born deaf. I hope someone can help him.

Here's a link to a website that may help get you started in finding a rescue group to take him

Hi!

Wrong side of the "pond" to offer any help, but I hope that this little guy finds a forever home ASAP :lotsaluv:

Also -- this dog should be checked for PSOM ('glue ear' in cavaliers) by any future owners. Often this is a cause of deafness and can be fairly easily resolved by flushing the ear (as rugical procedure which sometimes needs to be repeated).

Deaf dogs are VERY EASY to manage -- the main issue is not letting them offlead and watching they do not get out the door near traffic -- but you can even buy vibrating collas for them to call them! :)

I'd ask her to be very cautious about homing him 'free to good home' as he is young enough to end up in a puppy mill.

There is no reason at all to put down a deaf dog -- I am *sure* Canadian rescue will take him right away and place him into the perfect home. :)

Is there any contact information for Geordie??

I can call Elaine if someone can pm me the contact information.

Thanks. :)

Elaine knows people in Ottawa who'll be coming this way (she's near Toronto) on the weekend.

If you pm me the contact information (or call Elaine directly), she can call a Cavalier person to bring him down to this area.

Ottawa is about 6 hours away, by car. Thanks. ;D

Thanks Krista,

Elaine now has the contact number, hopefully Geordie will be with Cavalier Rescue soon. :)

I don't suppose any Cavalier rescue would consider a person from the other side of the border for rehoming?

I'd ring the Ottawa rescue contact listed. :) That's the only way to find out!

Elaine called me today, the contact person found Geordie a home with a great family.

All's well that ends well! :D
