🤍💓Please Meet Velvet!💓🤍

She is a 3 year old, 51 lb deaf pittie that was pregnant when we rescued her as a stray! Velvet is pure magic – as someone who specializes in deaf dogs I can say they are extremely resilient and such kind hearted dogs but they do need owners who will advocate for their independence and be strong pack leaders. Like most deaf dogs Velvet is extremely responsive to physical affection and spatial pressure to help her learn her hand signals and boundaries for safety (they can’t hear cars, loud noises etc so need someone that will take the leadership role in guiding her through life) Velvet also needs someone who will help choose the right dog friends for her (no dog parks) as she can’t hear warning signs so being deaf she’s at risk of being over corrected by other dogs and becoming defensive and being the sweetest girl ever we want to keep her that way! She loves running and playing with large dogs and does amazing on pack walks! She’s prone to minor separation anxiety so will need to be in a crate sleeping at night and when home alone until she adjusts fully. She has hyper active prey drive so no cats or dogs under 20 pounds just because she loves to chase and is still learning boundaries. I honestly only have amazing things to say about this sweet girl she is amazing with all people, children and LOVES men! I would love to see her become a family dog as she’s so social and sweet natured! I’m also available life long for her lucky adopters for virtual or in person training to help with any deaf dog questions or help! ✨
