    Default HOMED: jolly 8 year old deaf male blenheim

    I am taking into rescue an 8 year old male blenheim, a family pet surrendered into the pound because the people said he is deaf. I am trying to get him out for Friday as I cannot collect him tomorrow; he will need a place of foster if anyone in Ireland is interested in doing this, and also is looking for a home. I'll post a pic as soon as I can get one. I am told he is a very happy cheerful fellow and gets along very well with other dogs.

    If anyone can help or is interested in this man, let me know! I will also be notifying my list of people who have completed homing forms.

    Deafness is a known breed issue especially for older cavaliers so this is not an unusual disability; however he has obviously got along very well without this being a problem for a long time, and it is easy to train using hand signals.

    I can't wait to see pics! We've trained Abbey with hand signals, because I'm sure at some point we'll use them more once her hearing goes.
    Poor guy. That makes me mad.

    Got a call to say he'd arrived safely in Kerry and is a total dote. He loves his cuddles, is as friendly as can be, and gets along perfectly with both cats and dogs at the rescue. He is then off to his new home tomorrow. He is however totally matted; clearly the owners who couldn't be bothered with a deaf cavalier also couldn't be bothered grooming him. He is already scheduled for a beauty session and will get his coat stripped and a bath! I am delighted this fellow will enjoy his senior years by people who will appreciate him far more than he has been.

    That is such wonderful news Karlin. Let's hope this darling boy now experiences real love and attention. It makes me really mad too, Jen. Why do people take on a dog if they can't be bothered to even try and cope if there are problems?

    Maxx copes really well with his deafness problems and he loves being brushed and groomed - as do most Cavaliers I personally wouldn't see a problem with taking on a deaf dog. It's not as if they turn into pit bulls overnight is it????
