Pocky appears to have been born deaf. It certainly does not seem to have adversely affected her, though. She is as sweet and friendly as you could hope for. She has learned some basic sign language as well. Pocky would benefit from a family who has experience with hearing impaired dogs. There are definitely advantages to having a deaf dog. They can't hear you sing off key, you can change their name without confusing them and of course they can't hear the vacuum or thunderstorms. Still, the biggest and best reason is because she will adore you for no reason at all and be fiercely loyal to you forever. Pocky is spayed, microchipped, current on core vaccines and tested negative for heartworms. Pocky is only a year old and desperately in need of love. Pocky is just over a year of age and is medium/large. We love this girl. You hear me?
Give a little; our animals benefit a lot!
